Recommended Posts

Monday-did 2.25 miles @ 1% incline. Went into the gym in afternoon for upper body circuits. Went BADLY. Felt weak from the get go. I don't know if it is work is just so bad right now that it is effecting me or what, but it was bad.:thumbup:

Tuesday-another 2.25 miles @ 1% incline. Got stuck in a meeting and didn't get out in time to lift with legs.:lol::w00t:

Today-yet another 2.25 miles but @ .5% incline at a light job today, didn't push it.

I'll get in some more running tomorrow. Friday I go on VACATION!!!!!:w00t::w00t::lol::w00t::lol: Going to Orlando for 8 days, can't wait. I'll most likelly get up in the mornings and run outside for the first time since last Oct.

Mornin' Warriors!

Extended my at-work lunchtime walk and changed the route to include a big hill on campus. I was huffing and puffing at the top, but feeling good 'cause I made it!

That is now my favorite route - and I made it within the same 30 minutes I was giving myself anyway. That either means I was slacking, or that I am getting stronger - guess which one I prefer? :thumbup:

It's going to be a beautiful day today, so I'll be back on the pavement again - enjoy everyone! :lol:

Today: 45 minutes treadmill at 4% incline 2.5 miles.

I had the fluro fill yesterday and it was amazing. I could see the port and tubing as my innards glowed in the dark. :) Okay not really glowing, but you know the barium solution drink and the xrays really gives you an amazing view of your insides.

No leaks...and I received a 1cc fill, which feels good. Fluids are staying now. New meds continue to work their magic, and I feel stronger every day. Yahoo!!!

Did 3.25 miles today in 28:35. First 2.25 miles @ 1% incline. Last mile @ .5% incline. That gets me to my 10 miles for the week.:)

Tomorrow I'm up @ 0300, which is early even for me, to get to the airport by about 0430. Then, on to vacation:w00t::blink::w00t::ohmy:

I'll "see" everyone when I get back. Have a great week of working out everyone.

Mornin' Warriors!

Ceradad - enjoy your vacation! :blink:

Walked my killer route yesterday, then went for an appt with my band doc. I'm down a couple more pounds, but not as fast as either of us would like, plus I'm still hungry between meals (a lot) so he gave me a small fill. I definately feel the restriction today!

Will walk at lunchtime (weather permitting - it's warm, but we're expecting rain today) and rowing tonight. :)

Afternoon Warriors!

Just got in from my afternoon walk - a little late today because of Admissions committee prep work, and it was a little chilly outside, but I went anyway! :ohmy:

Feeling pretty darn good - got a good time on my walk and worked up a sweat. My hamstrings know I've been walking hills :tt1:

Probably will row tonight - 30 minutes. Gotta get a good start on the weekend...everyone enjoy! :lol:

Our "NTTS" workout was so hard that I came home and took a 3 hour nap!

We did core strengthening for about 50 min. with a trainer and then we did a bike workout with intervals for another 50 min.

I didn't have time to read everyone's posts since I went MIA (my battery on my laptop is dying). I hope everyone has been going strong or at least back on track. Though I have been gone, your wonderful words of support and encouragement were not wasted. You guys helped me so much. I decided to go back to Curves and do the Curve Smart program. It is wonderful! I lost 8 pounds since starting. Thanks you guys. I think I have found my stride and will try to post more often. Bless us all.

Hello everyone! I have been getting outside to walk again now that the snow and mud are gone. I am getting in a mile at lunchtime during the week and then come home and do 30 min on the tread climber. On the weekend I get in 2 miles and the tread climber. I feel great now if I could just start loosing again.

      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.
