January 2009 Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm kind of new to the website and I love how it provides a lot of helpful information and you are able to talk to lots of people who have been in the same situation. I was banded in October and have since only lost about 22 lbs. I was kind of frustrated and because of my plantar faciitis I am hurting in my foot a lot and can't do that much exercising.. But I am having surgery on my foot on Wednesday and after that I am looking forward to getting out there and shedding more pounds!! Keep up the good work to all!!

Did not get into gym last night for leg workout due to problem at home with garage door not closing. Of course, by the time I made it home, it was fixed. By then, I did not have the mindset.

This morning, 35 minutes on elliptical. Followed up with 11 minute/1.25 mile run and then 5 minute cooldown. I'll get up again today for another 35 minutes of cardio.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
