New Year, New Start Challenge- OFFICIAL thread



Recommended Posts

Count me in. I'm almost 9 months post op and stalled right at BMI of 30 - I want to get back in and cross over from obese to overweight. Current weight 174.8. I'd like to lose 10 pounds during the challenge. Going back to premier shakes for Breakfast. Not sure about other meals yet. Very uninspired by all things low carb.

I'm starting in the morning. I had gastric bypass on 5/18/16 and weighed this morning at 202.4 lbs. I would like to lose at least 25 lbs to reach my goal weight. My goals are to drink more Water, get more Protein in and walk at least three days. I have been stalled for over a month.

So today my current weight is... 227.6. I had surgery on 8/17/16 and my SW was 280. I am going to start this 12 week challenge with making sure I drink more Water, get my Protein in and go to the gym at least 3 times a week. I usually get my Protein in, but have a hard time with my Water. I would like to lose 27 lbs, to get below 200. Here is to the new year!

Forgot to give a goal. I'm going to go with 163.

Probably optimistic but I like to reach for the stars :)

Starting at 179. I have a Garmin. Increasing my activities, more Water. I am also incorporating some strength training. I am measuring my food and getting more Protein. Looking forward to seeing results and accountability.

Would love this but a problem: I put on some weight, I've found out, but I can bicep curl 50 lbs at 5'1". I have traps like Michael Phelps. My shoulders, back and chest are about bigger than the stomach but the stomach is getting bigger. I've been using medicine balls to pick up when I do situps and a lot of fly work. A massive amount of fly and distance work actually. I got Christmas Day, today off. I could have gone today but I've been doing declutter around the house, and I don't mean dusting. I mean putting up ceiling fans, painting, moving dish sets all around, rocker recliners.

I just started running so I've been using the couch to 5k app. I'd like to run in a 5k by June .

I also need to up my Water, I struggled with Water from day one over a year ago, I'd like to get over the 64 oz a day, especially on my 2 hour workout days

Other then that, I pretty much still stick to my dr guidelines of Protein first and keep my carb intake low.

I'm in :) sleeved June 2013

Weight @ surgery 297

Lowest weight 190

Goal weight 175

Current weight 231.7

Height 5'9"

Goal pant size 10/12

Lowest pant size 10

My plan is to go back to at least 1 Protein shake a day, increase Water intake, increase veggies, stay away from my slider foods, no added sugar and limit wine to truly special occasions.

Got a new gym membership so I'll be hitting the gym at least 4 times during the work week (2 spin classes/ 2 body pump classes). Weekends it'll be outdoor activities bike riding, SUP or walking.

I'll be using Fitbit and MFP for tracking purposes. I've set up mini goals for the year:

1) Feb: get into my new red dress for Valentine's Day ( it was too tight to wear for my company's xmas party!)

2) April: beat my time from last year for the Carlsbad 5k

3) June: be @ my wedding day weight of 204 by our 1 year anniversary

4) August: Complete a 5k distance entirely by jogging/ running (without stopping to walk)

5) October: Beat my overall time at the Esprit de She sprint triathlon.

Did a 14 mile hill bike ride today so I'm feeling really good and I know with a little planning and a lot of commitment we can all get back on track with our goals. Here is to a Happy, and Healthy 2017!

Stats from my hospital bed (going home in half an hour!), had a stricture and dehydration fix. Was in the hospital since Thursday getting so many iv bags!

HW 253?

SW 228.8 RNY Nov 21st

CW 214.5 BMI 34.9

As I finally am able to drink and eat more, I might actually reach my liquid goal one of these days. My progress has been slow, but I'm hoping it will pick up with some increase in Protein. Now that I can eat some!

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love
