1>8>3>4>6.

I think I hit a turning point last night after smashing my phone screen to smithereens and nearly slicing off my own fingerprints. Just... FINE. Now I’m rolling into the weekend with a solid 2 hours of drinking coffee while sitting in a swivel armchair staring out the window at birds and listening to yoga music.

Amazon is delivering a ton of bath stuff tomorrow, and I’m going to make chutney this weekend and eat it on a tiny grilled cheese. I have a plan. Monday things can wait for Monday.

I spend too much time on the internet, because this is what immediately popped into my head

I’m at about a 5. Came home from father-in-laws family reunion in Southern Arkansas on Monday. My souvenir from the trip is a pretty solid head cold that is hopefully peaking today. Work has been nutso since I returned and I’m PMSing which means everything and anything is testing my patience.

Husband is out with friends tonight and I’m relaxing at home, so I’d say we’re up to a 6.5.

The silver lining is that I don’t get sick that often these days and it usually blows over quickly now. One of the perks of now being a non smoker and taking a boat load of Vitamins. 😂

Is it just me, or is that gerbil practicing mindful eating?

Also while I promise not to make a grilled cheese and chutney the size of my own head, I cannot promise I will chew each bite 20 times, or that I will limit myself to a few bites and then throw the rest away (or cast it directly onto the floor). So that is PARTIALLY me this weekend, but not completely. Also the rodent has no wine. Rookie mistake, rodent.

Yeah, it's plastic and don't think it's organic but it travels well. :) Now I always am prepared for himself's coffee and my decaff iced tea!!! (You'll look like a doll in your dress! I have no doubts! But pics or it didn't happen!!! :D )

Hahaha i have no stevia that will travel well in tiny wedding purses so im leaving them behind. I think this is the outfit I'll wear unless something changes

It's a small top and an old size 12 formal skirt (when they meant it... None of this vanity sizing nonsense because it feels like a 6/8) so i can't gain an oz lol

      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.
