My blinds are open when I wake up but it is 400 in the morning so there is nothing to see. The sunshine won't be around for three hours. Luckily the windows of my job site open on the east and we see the sunrise every morning.

1. My personal goal is to get down to 150 and stay there.

2. I am having RNY to SADI revision. I am pre op. My operation is on Wednesday the 5th.

3. my weight is 246 Lbs.

4. My favorite winter activity is piling on the blankets or standing in front of the heater with a kitty cat by my side.

1. My personal goal is to get back down to 150.

2. I had VSG in Feb 2018, revised to RnY Oct 2018.

3. my weight before I left on vacay was 153 Lbs.

4. My favorite winter activity is arts/crafts or maybe vacay to somewhere tropical? 😁

Happy December. I'm almost to my one year surgiversary and still losing after having a sleeve done. Today I'm 186.6 and BMI 34. I'm thrilled I didn't gain while on holiday these past few days but I hit the gym every day except yesterday and tried to stay on program. I need to re-up my fluids again.

When, home, I open my shades every morning to let the light in. I do watch a bit of tv most days but am most likely to binge watch during Xmas week when I take a staycation. Yoga challenge is yay! Will be doing most of those poses regularly. Candle and cow face are works in progress.

Had a great time going home to PA and shocking everyone with my changes. It feels so good to be me and just me and not me with a weight problem. But still, going to keep up the program until I stop losing or I hit a place that I don't want to go under.

Off to the gym! Have a good day.

3. It's snowing...but I'm going to the gym and work....and hopefully yoga tonight. As far as dessert goes, I'm sure I'll have something. Still trying to get past Turkey day treats which have travelled to the office. But I do try to keep sugar free stuff around but I also seem to like a piece of dark chocolate on the regular.

Stay warm and dry peeps!

Day 3: I have been avoiding dessert but Ill probably sneak a small spoon of ice cream 🤤

FYI - I dont know anything about yoga but from the yoga flow for stress relief pic ive learned that everyday im doing position savasanna....

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Has anyone had a gastric sleeve revision?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
