Personal challenge between HP and D!!!



Recommended Posts

Thanks for the encouragement D! I recovered better than what I thought I would with my breathing...took me less than a minute to be at normal rate. Today, my legs dont feel too bad, we will se how they are tonight!

2B~ Awesome job on the weight loss!!

I kind of sorta miss my scale, but not horribly, I just try to preoccupy my brain with other things, and now that school is back, that will be easier to do!

hello

Well, I thought I was not going to get to ride tonight, as I did something to my back and it is killing me. It is below my waist, and it almost feels like a kidney infection, but hurts more like a hurt back....

But...we went anyway...and rode about 6.5 miles and than Rebecca and I told her dad we would meet him at this convience store...but if we werent there to just follow the way home an we would catch up with him there.

Well...these hills have been hills that I have always walked even this season of riding. They are long and steep. BUT I am so pleased to say, even with my back hurting we kept at it and made it.

I was y extremely pleased. We only ended up with 13.5 miles, but it was like doing 35 on flats...

I am extremely pleased that my daughter chose this over conditioning at school too. She even said it was better, and her coach told her this would count for her.

Anyway...I have lost some of the weight I had put on last week..Gosh I was on the scale on Sunday it was 229...I totally freaked.

Today I am back down to 221. I changed my ticker to show the gain....but..I am not planning on weighing in again now until MOnday...well...thats a holiday, so we will see....

I am happy to be back on my bike and it feels so good outside

we are having a very mild august

TL..you are doing so good.....I cant believe you are running..I want to do that to...if we didnt live on gravel it would be easier and I hate to do it at work....

HP~ I am glad you were able to get back on your bike, even though you were in pain :w00t: I know you probably felt soo good to ride again! How in the world did you drop 8 lbs in 2 days.....you need to bottle that magic and sell it! I will buy it! Good job on tackling those hills...we don't have those here..but boy can I tell when we hit a little elevation in the road..haha

I may be running but it is not much at all...only .4 of a mile...my hubby goes with me and stays at my pace to encourage me. We saw a report on Nightly News tonight showing that people who run typically hold off all of the aches and pains that are associated with old age an additional 16 years. So, that was enough to motivate me to try it again tonight.

I was able to get in another ride again last nite. it was just my daughter and msyself and the 2 people from the local town.

The weather was iffy, but we rode into some rain and dealt with wet conditions on the road, but it was nice to just be out there.

My goal is to try and ride all weekend if possible..I m off after today until tuesday...yea!!!

my back is still hurting..so I did not ride last nite, I thought I should let it rest.I took a muscle relaxer and hit the sack early...

Woke up this morning, and it is still hurting..but NOT as bad as yesterday.

We are not camping this weekend, but we are planning on getting some rides in and my husband and son are canoing. We may rent another canoe so we can all go, but not sure

Have a wonderful weekend

OKay my friends!! So I bolted town after work on friday and went to see my friends in Georgia! They were shocked to see how I looked which of course made me feel gooooood! We were so busy working our jabber jaws that we didnt get a lot of exercise in....a few people turned into about 14 people....so breaking away to run or bike was pretty hard! But I did run up and down their stairs (all 4 different sets of them) about 50 times! And I did awesome with watching what I ate! You can imagine all of the sweets and bad stuff that was there and I am so proud of my self and was complimented on my self control!

Anywaysssssssss. I hope all of you are having a fun and awesome weekend!

Be safe!!!!!

HP~ I hope your back feels better soon...That has to be one of the most uncomfortable aches and pains we can get. Keep resting it, dont overdo it until you feel like it is healed otherwise you will keep aggravating it and it will take longer to recover. Soak in a nice warm tub and use your heating pad!

This is what happens when you go on vacation with your hubby and no kids!!! :thumbup::rolleyes::)

Take it easy girl!

P.S. why do you have a frowny face behind your weight stats?? You need to make that a smiley face...you are doing awesome!

Okay...my report for the week is not good...I dont understand how I can gain weight when I am watching what I am eating, eating small amounts and working out....I dont get it.

So...I am up a pound.....262 blah

Seriously HP...what was your secret for the 8 lb loss so quick...lol because apparently I am still not doing things right even though I have changed everything about my life....

hey that is better than it could be.I think we all reach areas where we kind of stop loosing maybe we are toning or building muscle? I dont know..I do know it is frustrating as heck. I am saying that the time last week when I lost was due to Water weight and just being so swelled up from all the salt and stuff from eating out all the time.

I am still holding it though..but I also am not exercising and not at all watching what I am drinking.....YES.....I know

Keep up the good work..it WILL start coming off...I think we need to kick some stuff in the butt and get loosing again or we are going to be unhappy campers..LOL

I need to run to H depot with hubby

be back

      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.
