Pic of me with someone I love... Pass

Place I would go right now- Brazil to visit my friend before she heads off to Spain.

We keep missing each other, and i fear we have horrible timing. I may not travel abroad this year.

creative artistic trait pic attached and doubling for second portion of challenge of taping a pic in my (digital) journal (lol)

I like it because its current mood. I'm sooooo tired of the cold and dreary snow, I'm basically just wearing dark

hooded clothing until spring.

DAY 12

  • Starting to get the hang of this! Surprisingly doing pretty well on the "No junk food challenge." Even though temptation is everywhere!
  • Did some different exercises today. Trying to branch out a little.
  • I have a picture of myself with my sisters, that I thought I looked pretty good in. It's amazing how heavy I looked, but I didn't think I was that heavy at that time. If that makes any sense.
  • NSV today. I had flats on that I haven't worn in awhile. Started walking and they flew off my feet!!😂 Who knew, you could lose weight in your feet! LOL

FEB 10: I only wear makeup about twice a week so although this is my regular face, I never take pics without makeup. I wish I could wear it every day because its fun but my skin has been changing over the last couple of years and it gets angry if I do that :(

FEB 12: I am creative and it comes out in many ways. One of them is my baking and homemade bday decorations! My daughter's 7th bday was space themed this year.

Also, for the record, I am also doing the writing prompts but keeping them private. I'm more honest about things if I do it that way.

Day 12...

  • No Junk food (since last check-in): CHECK! I feel this is not much of a challenge for me as I don't seem to have the desire for junk food at all. My current Achilles heel is greek Salad Dressing. I'll have 1 tablespoon when I have salad (which btw, I've been really bad about as I eat it first before my Protein cuz I just like it better) and then to maximize my salad dressing fix I take a leaf of said the salad and wipe the spoon to get it all. If there were no repercussions, I would drink the stuff from the bottle. At 55 calories a tablespoon with 2g of sugar, that would be interesting.
  • #12 Plank: 30s plank x5 + 30s mtn climbers x4: NOPE. I traded in these planks & mtn climbers for 2 hours of snow shovelling with Mr. and the Kid (i'm starting to hate planks and mtn climbers...!!)
  • #12 Fave personality trait: I like that I'm very "thorough" (some may say anal, but whatever).

12. There is a picture of 16 Yr old me at a party with a school chum. It was taken at the one time I was a healthy weight (due to Weight Watchers and a crush on an aerobics teacher which meant I was at the gym everyday). I can see what healthy me looks like, because all my other photos (except for a scuba diving license) I'm overweight or obese.

Day 13...

  • No Junk food (since last check-in): CHECK!
  • #13 Plank: 30s plank x6 + 30s mtn climbers x5: SORT OF. I did 5 of the 6 planks at first, I was shaking like a leaf for the entire 5th plank (not just at the end), and was done. I did the 6th plank like 7-8 minutes later, so it doesn't really count, but at least I did 6 in total. I also am officially removing the mountain climbers from my efforts as this is a plank challenge after all, and I HATE mountain climbers.
  • #13 Somewhere I'd love to be: Somewhere warm with great diving, given that we are buried under a foot of snow from last nights storm (bucket list diving destination: Raja Ampat), and I can wear a wetsuit and BCD that is NOT a men's XL and NOT have to have 16lbs in weights to keep me down, and NOT feel like a beached whale whenever I surface.

That's one of my weightloss goals - to start diving again.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
