Hey all! Feeling a little better today..Got my gym fix last night..I enjoyed zumba for 60 minutes and it was great! I did the elliptical for about twenty minutes...but I wanted to do strength training too! So I did legs and abs, and the back area I love so much!!! It was nice to get to go...I am now just aiming for hitting the gym three days a week, plus atleast one day on the weekend...It's too hard to put myself on such a high goal to get there everyday, right now with school..I don't want to be dissappointed at myself either...SO my goal is too hit the gym atleast three times a week, and if I hit it more that would be great, but I am going to do my zumba DVD at home more, and my exercise on demand choices...That way I am still getting exercise...

Wow, this has been kind of dead the past couple of days. Kind of like me. I went home after work on Tues w/o getting in my lower body workout due to getting quite sick on Tues afternoon. First strength training workout I've missed since surgery:frown: Got home and basically slept for about 12 hrs Tues night, got up Wed morning and moved to the couch. Slept most of Wed and another 12 on Wed night. Still got my meals and liquids in, just slept in btwn.

So, yesterday morning, I woke up and felt somewhat better and went to the gym. Got in both 100 minutes of cardio and upper body workout before my 6 month appt.

Even though I lost another 7 lbs last month, we decided it was time for my first fill. SUCKED!!!! PA had difficulty getting the needle in the port and then apparently had the bevel facing the wrong way. Took her about 5 minutes just to get the syringe to work properly. As I've stated before, I HATE NEEDLES! and got quite cranked up during this time. When she sat me up to sip some Water, I got quite dizzy and lightheaded with all the adrenaline.

Oh well, I survived and am on liquids and whole liquids yesterday and today. Can go back to normal and find out what foods I can still tolerate tomorrow. Got 2 cc's added yesterday on top of the 4 they put in during the surgery. So, I'm up to 6 cc's in there.

Got up this morning with a HUGE sinus headache. Took a couple of liquigels and hit the gym before work. 50 minutes on elliptical.

Hope you all are doing better than me today.

Sorry, to hear about your fill, and the sinus headache, definitely not a way to start the weekend, that is for sure. Well I have been busy studying my butt off, to still get a crappy grade. I missed questions I know I should have known the answer to.. I will see my test Tuesday and meeting with Professor, after class for help. So today, I started my day off with a walk...I walked my neighborhood since the snow is melting a little bit..Thought some fresh air would do me good. I do feel better...but now it's time to write a paper and study some more....How do people do this college thing I will never know!!

Looking forward to the gym tomorrow, plan to spend some quality time with my machines, and my favorite zumba lady!! I have however, done my work out tapes at home 2 times and did exercise on demand once but I did three different ones...They only last like 20 min though...I am so glad it's Friday!! I hope you all have a Great Friday!! Ceraded, hope you feel better.

Wow Jess Lots of book work!

I never want to go back to school.

I spent too much time on University in London from 16 -21 it was a killer.

We worked on the job 4 days a week and Uni 1 day a week. The Uni day was 7am - 9pm...an absoluate killer.

I only have three more weeks until clinicals, I will be in the hospital two days a week. So I am really excited about that, but I will still be in school two days a week as well..But I will have Mondays off!! I am sure I will be studying though...Is it summer yet!!

Finally! I'm starting to feel alive again. Got up early and in the gym once again.

Elliptical-65 minutes, 5.17 miles and 1076 calories.

Bad news is, DW called me at work first thing to report DD is now sick.:laugh: I told her not to be with me while I was at home when avoidable, but she wanted to spend time with me. Said she didn't care if she got sick.:drool:

      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.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
