4. I love collecting and working with crystals and stones!

Ms.sss, this procedure was a vertical thigh Lift. It has kicked my sitting side. Had my arms done in 2018 and it was not tough and they are great. Had LBL and BL in December 2016. plastics are tough. I am still in the suffering stage though - glad I did first 2 and may eventually get there with this procedure. PM me any questions as not to clutter this feed.
I too can not commit to a book. I Read a bunch of John Gottnan work earlier searching for a patient. It reminded me how very much a person wants connection and not to ignore others.

I'm so far behind on this thread!

I'm in for August

Goal is same as last month, stay below 130 & walk at least a mile a majority of days.

Sleeve, 18 months post op, in maintenance

129.8 lbs, 23 BMI

Fun fact - I have visited 32 states & 20 countries (I don't count if I just land or transit through a state or country)

Day 1 - Wake up early - Yeah, no way, I get up plenty early as it is.

Day 2 - Read a book - I'm not sure my schedule this month will leave much time for reading

(I'm not off to a great start, am I? 🤣)

1. Okay so this sounds weird, but I’m setting a personal goal for August to avoid alcohol entirely.
Wine had been creeping back unto my diet and then there was a tequila tasting and....well no wonder I had a bit of a stall lately.
I want to average losing 2 pounds/week this month and that’s the ONLY way to achieve it.

That is a great goal! I'm pretty open that I'm not a super great rule follower. But I drank almost no alcohol during my weight loss phase. That was a huge deal because my work life includes A LOT of drinking. So it's great that you recognize that it will hold you back from your ultimate goal!

4. As a child i won a lot of awards & my artwork even was displayed in a Japanese museum, these days I barely produce work - I peaked early 😂😂😂

I still haven't peaked! I think I either missed my window, or my calling! 🤣

Update: 238.8 lbs (weigh-n at PCP)

Most exciting part of the visit: My doctor smiled at me (usually there was like a frown and a wrinkle about my labs/BP readings) and said: Oh my! Your face looks sooooo different! Yayyyyyy!

I said I would update - don't have my BMI. Might go by the gym later and do the little handheld thing they have...

Day 3 goal: Go out in an environment where there is eating and drinking and have total fun....It's what the people I know do! Walk in the morning (b/c I live in Florida and it's hot!)

Day 4 goal: Go walk! As you can tell, Day 11 after surgery and I can't seem to walk as I should!

Congrats, sounds like you're doing great!

You can calculate your BMI here

It looks like you're about a 41 BMI :)

Okay so does picking up a book about IF count as an inspiring read?
If so, then yes!

About ready to head to the Pilates studio again (that makes 5 classes so far this week).
Gonna get that strength training in

Day 2:

Book: Reading "To kill a mockingbird" with my soon to be 8th grader as the book is her reading list for the 8th grade and we are reading ahead. I'm having a profound appreciation for the book again having read it years ago. My daughter is loving it as well. Atticus Finch is an influential figure in my life. I hope it resonates with her the way he did me.

Strength training: Does yin yoga count?? It was a LONG week for me (I'm thinking probably more emotional than physical because of preop things) so I needed that class to round off the week.

Packing for the last family vacation before end of summer and school commencement. It's a cruise......heaven help me!! For the first time in my life, I'm packing work out clothes for vacation and I asked my perfectly svelte sis in law to pack hers to keep me accountable.

I'm dedicated to completing this challenge [emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

      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.

      08/20/18 - weight 165.5 / bmi 25.9 / bmr 1602 kcals / fat% 17.4% / fat mass 29 lbs
      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.
