I rode my bike to work this week, twice. It is 6.5 miles one way. I absolutely loved it and as long as the weather is holding, I am going to continue to ride all summer. I hope to work up to all 5 working days.

I wish you the best.

I wish I could do this. I live 20 miles away from my work!

I'm thinking about doing it once a week anyway, maybe on Friday so I could go home early and get home before dark. I'm definitely going to bike to work on Bike to Work Day though. Who else is going to do that?

Mac I used to do 12 miles to work when I had a later shift. It was very rewarding. Unfortunately now with my 5am start time, it is just too darn early for me to be out on the bike. I do have a headlight, taillight, and reflective gear but I just feel too unsafe heading out at 4 am. I have done it, but I am queesy the whole time.

I did get out and do 12 miles yesterday with hubby. I am glad the weather is finally breaking. We have had the furnace off for over a week now. It is going to be a little bit chilly the next few nights (40's) but hopefully once the rain clears up we will have some sun again. There is a ride this Sunday that I want to do, weather pending and if I can find someone to take my kids to their religious classes at church.

I got a bike fit today! They moved my seat down and back and adjusted my handle bars and now I am more balanced on the bike and also can go 2 MPH faster with the same amount of effort. I'm stoked!

BG, Alison is going to be doing that ride on Sunday. 65 miles, I think. Look for her if you do it.

Got out and did 10 miles yesterday. I am amazed at the difference in speed when on the road compared to the bike path. On the path I usually average about 12.5mph. On the road it can be anywhere between 16-18mph.

I tried to keep up with the big guys today on my group ride. I got dropped pretty badly when they all got through a light and it turned red for me. That stupid light was FIVE MINUTES long and they were long gone before I was able to get going again. But I took a short cut and caught up to some of them.

hi everyone....

Took off work today because I had a doctors appointment for my 6 month mammogram re check...all is well...no repeat for 12 months....:thumbup:

my husband and I both took the day off and went riding afterward looking for some new roads to ride....had a heck of a head wind, but all in all a real nice ride.

We are expecting rain the rest of the week which stinks...

Hope everyone is doing well...Julie love your new picture......

The winds are terrible right now. I don't know what gives?!

BG, look for a ride around 6/6/09. I'll be up there and we're going to do some mt. biking that weekend too, to get ready for the Muddy Buddy Part II.

I'd love to ride with you. Nothing huge, less than 40.

Traci, Thanks for the compliment. I just got my degree this weekend, that was Zoe hugging the stuffing out of me.

Hey, if any of you guys are in the SF Bay Area, I'm starting a team to do the Bike MS: Waves to Wine event in Sept. We're called Team Altered Reality (because we've all had WLS) and you can read all about it at:

National MS Society - Bike Event: Homepage

If you are interested, let me know and I'll send you a coupon to wave the registration fee.

I clicked the link. Looks like a good time but you are on the other side of the country! I wish you were closer I'd do it in a minute!

I have to say the name of one of your challenging teams "menstrual cycles" made me laugh out loud.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
