Hey Peeps, sorry, but I've fallen off the exercise wagon! I haven't worked out in a while, but the good thing is I'm still losing, so I'm not gonna complain right now!

Wedding planning has been super super crazy! Bought the dress, I can't believe they had one that fit me! So next weekend we're getting the dresses for the girls! I'll be checking in again!

I just now found this thread, so had a lot of catching up to do! Also, will have spreadsheet updated this evening...sorry to be such a slacker in that department. Life is a little nuts right now, but will get back to posting and keeping up with the spreadsheet faithfully.

My workouts are still consistent, and the cardio is picked back up. Not only am I lifting an hour and a half to two hours a day Monday thru Friday, but now I'm getting back on the recumbent bike at the gym, too. I didn't realize how much I missed that! So I do that for 25 minutes a day on the days when I don't ride my real bike.

By the end of this week, I plan on being back here full force again guys! I miss it terribly! Take care everyone!

Hi Guys,

Sorry I was slacking posting here. I have been sick alot this month. It's not been good. First I was sick with bronchitis, then i got better then the kid got the croup. Then I came down with another head cold. I think..think..I am finally a healthy household. Haven't done a whole lot in January.

Yesterday went to the Y and just did some leg lifts and crunches. Also did the treadmill for 25 minutes. I've been leary of it since I came down with tendonitis in my ankle. But it felt just fine being on there. Even did some good running on it. It's amazing how good I felt. I could go for so much longer without feeling like I was dying. Anyways..the leg lifts were important to me. I never get through them in my saturday strength class. So I committed to working on them more so I can get through them at the class. I have spin class tonight. Still loveeee this class!

Hey daddy! It's great when you see yourself progress in the spin class. All of a sudden it doesn't feel like your gonna completely die in that class. One day it'll be nice not to be the biggest one in the class too (talking about me here..lol) Man those people are fit. All the girls have "chicken" legs too I call them. They look soooo good! I want that!

Stefanie, I am so glad you found us, It has been so busy here...It was crazy...just trying to take a day at a time...

Have a great day everyone!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
