GG-- Hows the stomach? I hope your feeling better.

Today is the first day I have felt halfway decent. Thank the Lord my stomach has stopped cramping! I will probably wait until Tuesday to start running again.

Congrats on finishing the 5K! I have to wear a compression shirt when I run to hold down my tummy and support my port or else I have some serious pain issues.

I got some compression shorts.. they seem to be helping some with the belly jiggy.. Still have some pain though, near the port area.. Did abs today at the gym and now that area is sore again..

How everyone doing?

Hope everyone is good..

I am still plugging away.. Being trying to run outside one day a week because My 5k is in about 4 weeks.. Need to get used to running outside... I am up to 15 miles a week, running 4 days a week.. I feel pretty good... I think I am addicted to running heheh But I am being careful not to add more miles or speed fast or hurt myself..

I have started a cross training program. Its nine weeks also. I did day 5 of 27 today. I have been blogging about it. Today it consisted of running for 5 min. then stop and do 5 push ups and then run again for 30 min.. I told my husband it was harder than just running because every time you stop you have to convince yourself to start again. :bolt: Tuesday I have to jump rope for 2 min and then do 10 sit ups & 10 push ups and then back to jumping rope and repeat as many times as you can for 30 min. I'm not convinced I can jump rope for 2 solid min. we will see....

I am doing much better! I only got in 2 runs last weeks. I went to see Grace Potter and the Nocturnals in Atlanta Friday night, so my weekend was pretty busy....but awesome! 4 hour drive to Atlanta and then 4 hour drive back. It messed up the rest of my weekend, but it was so worth it!

I ran this morning. I did another day of week 4. I am doing great with it....I think I will take a stab at week 5 on my next workout. Week 5 is where I ventured off of the program last time and created my own thing. We'll see how it goes this time.

Liftingchic....15 miles a week is AWESOME! Congrats and keep it up! Good luck on the upcoming 5k!

Congrats marsmom! That's great!

Hope everyone is doing good. I was going to move on to week 5 this past week, but that has been put on hold. I went to the dermatologist earlier this week and she cut a couple of places out on my leg and arm, so I have stitches. The stitches don't come out until Aug. 10th, so no runs until then.....darn it! I was so excited to start week 5! Since I won't be running until Aug. 10th, I'll probably have to repeat week 4 again before moving on.

Good morning Everyone!

Glad to find this thread again...started doing the C25K last summer, and ran my first 5K in October 2009. Planning to do another this fall, and in the meantime, I've done part of the C28K program.

I'm at the point now where I can run a 5k just about any time I want...that feels really good! In fact, I ran the distance on Sunday morning and chopped 5 min off my time from the 5K I did last fall.

I'm not the fastest runner - my first 5k I completed in about 47 min, this Sunday I did it in 42 min. I hope to get my time down into the low 30's eventually. It fits the amount of time I normally have to run, so it's perfect for me.

Don't know if I'll go back to the C28K - I stopped because the workout were taking almost an hour!

Nice to see everyone's progress and hard work!:wub:

Congrats to all of you who have done a 5K - I just started the C25K today. Its been a little over 2 weeks since my surgery and today was the first day of jogging in a really long time.

I was glad to hear that other people have to hold their port when jogging and that compression shirt/shorts help - I'll be looking into those tomorrow.

Wish me luck, I'm planning to run my first 5K in 15 years this November with a couple of friends. I used to run in high school and college, so I'm looking forward to getting back to it again.

Hi all,

I am about to start week 3 this week. I am doing my running at the gym on the treadmill and I only run at a speed of 4.5-4.6. I guess that is good considering I have never run (or as I figure JOGGED) before. Is that speed ok or should I be pushing myself to go faster? Also, I have heard it is harder to run outside. Should I be trying to train on pavement vs the treadmill?

Thank for all your support!

:-) Katie

      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.
