B-Side Question(s):




Did you have realistic or dysmorphic views of your body prior to surgery? Did it change?




📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷📷




I didn't realize what i looked like until I saw photos... Still the same


I think I was more dysmorphic pre WLS. I felt much thinner/attractive than I was. I hated pics of myself because they ruined my delusions

Now I think I look much closer to how I have always thought I did. But on the other hand I’m pretty deeply unhappy with my naked self, but think that’s reality vs dysmorphia

Oops... missed yesterday's arm workout. But I still got in my 5km yesterday and today. I'm listening to a fun YA audiobook while I walk. It doesn't help my pace the way music does, but the time goes by faster. Did a mishmash of the arm workouts and my arms feel good and tired. :)

Yesterday's pic... a beach. Living on the prairies, there aren't many beaches to be had, but there's a man made lake less than an hour away, and we went there for Canada Day last year.

Today's pic... family. A shot from my MIL's 80th birthday celebration. 20180701_131408.jpeg 20190511_182455.jpeg

Guest B-side question:




What/where is the best beach you've ever been to/want to go to?


I fantasize all the time about laying on this beach again. Especially on days that work sucks 😂

*Time Out Question*




I'm looking through the arm before photos and EVERYONE'S arms look very normal to me.




Am I just used to my type of arms, or are we not that worse for wear?




👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈👉👈


I can only answer for myself, but my arms look older than I really am because if the saggy skin. It’s the bad skinny fat look 😔. If my muscles were larger, I think it would greatly improve their appearance. Now I just have to do something about it, which is harder than whine about it 😂

I really like this challenge! Can't wait to see some definition in💪 my arms at the end of the month.

Status still losing, even if its slowly. Current weight 141.9. I keep hovering over my goal wt. I'm determined to reach it by the end of this challenge.

Day 3:

  • Sleek Arms Challenge: Done.
  • 5 mins to Toned Arms Challenge: Done. Disclaimer: I did the bicep curls, but with no weights (too lazy to go into basement to set up the home gym for biceps). Tricep dips are becoming my new nemesis...my arms are still sore from yesterdays chair dips, man! So the second set of dips were done with bent knees.
  • Family Pic: Went to my mom's place today to dig through the boxes in her basement to try and find a picture of Accra Beach, and found this gem. Its dated 1955 and features my mom (on the left wearing a headband), my aunts, my grandparents, and my great-grandmother. I also found VHS tapes labeled "8mm transfers". So it looks like I've found my next project: find out whats on these tapes and get them digitized!

Out of town hanging with family for the 4th. No time for arm exercises but went for a few long walks today. I REALLY wanted pie but I held tough.

They went overboard decorating the boathouse this year. This is my family picture without my family pictured and this is where we watched the fireworks, so 2 birds 1 stone.

Day 4 (forgot to post yesterday...):

  • (easy) Sleek Arms Challenge: Done.
  • (harder) 5 mins to Toned Arms Challenge: Done. Aside: I feel like there should be rest days for this one! My triceps are sore and need a day to heal, man. Am going to implement a personal rest day for this harder challenge every 5 days. I'll do the easy one every day though....
  • Fireworks: Here is a video of Canada Day fireworks from last year (I didn't document any from this year...oopsies)

Late to the game because of vacation. I sort of fell off the June challenge and posting so I hope to be better about it this month.

Starting weight 208
Post Op- Sleeve 4+ months

Goals:
Participate in the arm challenge and Instagram Challenge. My IG handle is @NYC_PAULA
Loose 8 Pounds-I had a stall for a couple weeks and finally dropped two more pounds. I'd love to get to 200 by the EOM so I can get to Onederland by my six months check up in August.

Back to reality tomorrow and back to arm and cardio workouts.

Picture today is freedom. I feel the most free and independent than I have in 5-6 years. I took this right before I had surgery.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

      2. sillykitty

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
