Outside was not in the cards today, it has been cold and wet here. I did walk from my car to the gym!

B side. Boating of any kind, softball, hanging around a fire pit and going for a walk at night in a big city.

Walking, hiking, working in the yard, bird / nature watching, riding our atv and freaking the grandkids out to see “ya ya” on a four wheeler 😂😂😂

I’m in!!!

Current weight: 249

3 mos post op (losing)

my goals: same as last month although I was 1lb shy -

1) lose 10 lbs

2) continue riding my stationary bike every day

3) go for as many walks outdoors as I can before it gets too hot

4) continue to look for new recipes to add to my repertoire

5) take care of my physical, mental and spiritual needs so I can best care for those IN my care

challenge day #1) go outside. It was so gorgeous here today it would’ve been hard NOT to

Good luck to all of us this month 👍🏻

Crappy, cold, rainy day today. The only outside time I got was walking to and from car to wherever I had to go and home.

I have 2 answers.
1. I love messing around in my garden.
2. I have a swimming pool.
Sadly the pool hasn’t been opened yet and we’ve been suffering cold days, but by this time
next month I’ll be lounging poolside on days off

Day 2:

  • 5 REGULAR (!) push ups done. So I may not have gone down far enough for my liking, but I did get my elbows to 90 degrees at least, so in my book, those are regular push ups. 😎
  • Make some art: need to think about this one....

Happy May Day #2

  • Did my pushups today, did an extra one because I was so proud I could do 5!🤣
  • Make some art. Mmmmm, on that one. I am definitely challenged in that area. I have some leftover Easter dye. Maybe I'll dye some eggs and eat them. Gotta get that Protein in, right!!

2. Make some art. It's not visual art but I did write a sketch for my writing class before work this morning so I'm counting that as my art for the day. Tonight is weight day followed by Yoga so I know I won't have the energy to create something when I get home.

B-Side: Favorite outdoor activity is running. I hate running on a treadmill but love it if I can do it outdoors.

Thursdays are also my weekly weigh-in day. I'm down another 3 pounds which is a great way to kick off this challenge. 9 more pounds to go by the end of the month.

Day 2 - Make some art. My creativity takes two directions... cooking for my family (thankfully the wee-lings are adventurous eaters) and writing. I'm planning on a bit of both today. Making a casserole for the freezer for post op and I'm going to do a little work on my romance novel that I've been plugging away at since last fall.

5 push ups and one (of three) walking workout done.

The attached is the view out our bedroom window at 2am. I'm quite ready for this nonsense to stop.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
