  2. Surgery: Sleeve May 14...trying to loose but it is a slow processing
  3. Weight: 207 BMI: 33.4
  4. Fun fact: Hmmm...I am obsessed with finding bargains- especially at thrift stores.

Best to everyone this month!

Let me see.. He is nominated for an Emmy again this year. He is medium famous, some people consider him moderately famous. I wouldn’t say he’s a household name...but odds are you know his work.




Edited to add, it’s not Brad Pitt lol




also, I’m not going to publicly name him. It pinpoints me a bit much. If you want to guess have fun! send me a message if you are dying to know. It isn’t a big deal!


Ooh I've looked at the Emmy list and has he been in a long running political drama?

Girl you know I've been needing to join in on these! I'm gonna do it this month!!

My personal goal is to maintain my current weight and get back in a better habit of tracking my food. Next week is my one year surgiversary. I'm 123 lbs with a 21 BMI.

Fun fact about me? I'm a DISNERD. Obsessed with all things Disney. I wake up on weekend mornings and throw on a Disney movie to enjoy with my morning coffee.

Wake up 30 minutes earlier.

Good morning.

I woke up an hour earlier today, I have a lot of laundry and packing to do before we head to Toronto in a few days.

I need to get some food for the road trip. I’m going to pack nuts, fruit (note to self toss before border), and Jerky of some sort. Anyone have ideas? It’s a long trip. I avoid Protein Bars and most prepared Snacks because I know I would enjoy them too much.

I’ll do the elliptical at home today and go for a long walk tonight, it’s gorgeous here.

Ok, I'm in! Hello August!!!

August Stats: 17m PO RNY, 56y F, 5'4", 135lbs, 23BMI (3w PO for emergency internal hernia with twisted gut)

Personal Goal: Want to hit 130lbs by August 20th (18m f/up with my surgeon & oncologist & cardioman)

Fun Fact: I used to be a very very very fluffy (325lb) low carb keto food blogger and wrote several digital e-cookbooks. My old blog was Fluffy Chix Cook. I also am a freelance graphic artist and work from home, so most days I work in flannel pjs or stretchy soft shorts and tshirts. LOL. And very fuzzy house slippers.

Oh, and in my usual 2percenter way, I overslept 30minutes this morning and missed my running cuz I had a rush job due this morning. Now I have to fit it in today...ahhhh Mondays. ;)

Wow, I'm not hapf as interesting as you guys!!

1. Personal goal this month is first to learn what i can/cant do post surgery, also figure out how I'm going to go New Orleans for my birthday without indulging!

2. Surgery type - 1 week post surgery - Gastric bypass Revision to Partial Duodenal Switch (no shrinkage of stomach),

3. Weight and BMI - i have my 1 week post op appointment tomorrow so will know my weight then

4. Fun fact - Well apart from me turning 50 on 8/31, so looking forward to it! I guess, I'm a candy crush fanatic and am currently at level 5405...

I was also a gifted student when i was younger, not sure what happened 😁 but in 1988, i won the Y.T.S (Young Training Scheme) award for all of London and was given an award by the Lord Mayor of London and had to make a speech. At the time The Bank of Nova Scotia was a Sponsor, they asked me to come work for them, i started the following Monday and spent the next 18 years working for them, the best years of my life 😊😊

Hello August. Last night was a new moon which means new beginnings. My goal is to drop 6 lbs. to 130 lbs. I gained a little over 10 pounds following plastics and think this is totally doable as also swelling will decrease. I am 5’5” and weigh 136.4 as of this morn. I was sleeved in 2015 and lost about 105. Goal is-125 lbs. I was maintaining until June PS. Fun fact: I held a job as a shadow dancer in a nightclub.

      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.

      08/16/19 - weight 149.5 /  bmi 23.5 / bmr 1500 kcals / fat% 16.7% / fat mass 25 lbs
      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.
