Ceradad, I was wondering where you have been. What a great son you are. You could teach my teenage son a thing or two about being a good kid to his mom.

Glad your back!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. TQUAD, I wouldn't be too rough on your son. When I was a teen, I wouldn't haven't been too keen on the idea of hanging around my mom if she had done this then. I'm 38 now and can appreciate the fact she was there for all my injuries/surgeries.

Plus, the fact that I have been through so many injuries, I was able to tell let her know what she was going through for pain and how to deal with it was normal. Seemed to make a difference.

Of course, I'm paying for it now trying to get caught up at work.:rolleyes:

Off to the gym again for some self torture.

Wii sounds so fun i just NEED to talk my wife into it.

Whosya~ My DH was really skeptical about getting the Wii, now I have to kick him off it so the kids and I can use it! He has been doing yoga since we got it at Christmas time and he is now kicking my butt on the poses!

Wii is really fun for the whole family!

Didnt exercise yesterday - had done 4 days in a row and was VERY sore from my sandbag workout (oh, how I love muscle soreness, lol).

Today we allowed ourselves the luxury of a sleep in. Its still boiling here, so indoors again, I'm going to do Cardio Coach 6 on my treadmill.

Tomorrow, my plan is a circuit. The kids go back to school monday (none too soon either), and this coming week is going to be hot, so on top of my normal routine, I thought I'd go to the outdoor pool and do some lap swimming (followed by lazing in the sun getting a tan and reading a book or two) a couple of days.

Cant stand swimming in indoor pools - I always get sick, always and all the hair and bandaids is revolting.

No exercise today for me - will try the Wii Yoga and step aerobics later tonight.

Did do something good for me today, though. . . . Today I bought a bike!

I am really excited about it. A lady from work has a relative who sells beach cruisers and he gave me an incredible deal on a 3-speed Phat bike.

I was figuring it out today - I haven't been on a bike since my daughter was 2. She's 11 now.

Praying for an early spring!

Today: 60 minutes treadmill 3.4 miles cross between jogging and power walking and 4% to 5% to mix it up a bit.:thumbup:

OMG: I just realized that today is the last day of January. I did 3.4 miles in 60 minutes and on January 1, I did 2.1 miles at 50 minutes. Wow, you really can build up your rate of speed if you just keep at it. Yahoo Team Tquad!!!!

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      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.
