Getting a Little Bit Closer

Recommended Posts

I haven’t been on in a while, because I’ve been so busy lately. I hope to catch up today and gain some more inspiration here! I have been doing really good sticking to my personal goal of watching my calories and walking more prior to my surgery consultation to make sure I’m as committed now without the surgery to maintain this lifestyle afterwards. I’ve lost 21 pounds total since August. I’m back in the 200’s, which was my first big goal to get to on my own. I’ve been going to the monthly WLS meetings, met with my primary care Dr twice now. She faxed her approval to the dr for my surgery. She’s very supportive and pleased with the results I’ve had prior to surgery. She thinks this choice of bypass is going to be a great thing for me on my journey to becoming healthier. I have my sleep study consultation scheduled for next month. After my next WLS meeting next month my nutritionist will set up everything with the surgeon for our first meeting... it’s becoming more real now! It helps that my life has been go, go, go... no real time to fret over the 6 month insurance required wait. I also adopted Lola, my 1st puppy ever as an adult, and she has 100% helped keep me active and motivated to keep moving. I feel good and positive about what lays ahead! I hope you all have been doing well, can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to! 💚

That cute face will definitely help keep you motivated to move, congrats! Aren't puppies fun?! All but the potty training. What breed is Lola and how big will she get? She's beautiful.

Sounds like you've been doing wonderfully on the go. I'm hoping to do the same as my work gears up for the recruiting season. All the best to you!

She’s a Double Doodle, her dad was around 60 pounds and her mom was around 50 pounds, so I’m curious where she’ll end up at. She’s been doing really good with the potty training, thankfully I have all wood floors if she does have an accident. It has been 2wks now and I can pretty much tell when she has to go, but every once in a while when it gets hectic around here I miss the cue. She’s definitely a ball of energy that keeps me on my toes, dr approved bahahaha! 😅 Thank you for the well wishes, I hope you have lots of success as you’re gearing up for a busy season! Take care!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!
