I know, I know I have not blogged since Nov 2011. I'm starting a new project and have vowed to blog my way through it. I'm going to update you guys soon, but I'm going to show you a new pic first...
This was my before pic Mar 2011(308 pounds)and the other is my currant pic Jun 2013(160 pounds)...To date I have lost 153 pounds, although I have regained 8 pounds (but not for long). Thank you all for sticking with me, I will show you all some love by keeping you guys updated!! Thank you!
So I have been really busy lately but I have gotten to my first goal of 180 pounds....!!! Yeah meeee!! But now I want to get down to 165 pounds....I am 10 pounds away from that! I’m so excited about my continued success, I am not as strict as I was in the beginning, but continue to lose weight. My plan is to get back on plan....I have 10 more pounds to lose and want to maintain that weight loss once I’m there.
I am dating a man who lives in New York; I am going to visit around the first of December and am sooo excited. I am happy about where this may lead me.
I hit 195 this morning from a starting weight of 308, I'm so thrilled that this is working as well as it is. I have always worked my tool MY own way.
I'll tell y'all and I will not make everybody happy but here it is:
-I don't track any food! I did in the beginning until I just eye balled my stuff.
-I don't weigh any of my food, I do measure sometimes.
-I eat protein first and veggies last
-I have not started to exercise yet, but as of 6 month out I will start and go HARD!
-I do walk about 30 min a day...
-I eat dark chocolate almost everyday (just a square or two, comes out to 3 gr. of carbs)
-I have a cheat day once a week, really I don't go over board not that I could. But I'll have an extra ice coffee or a couple bites of fried chicken (my fave), a bite of a cupcake....I don't know but I allow myself one meal a week with no restrictions.
-I don't drink enough water but everyday I do try to change that.
-I have started to drink alcohol, not often but socially.
-I am a baker by trade and have to taste the food prior to selling/catering and let me tell y'all I know I have that "dumping" thing that RNY's have....man If I eat anything to sweet (ice cream, frosting) I will be in the bathroom all next morning.....I'm really glad about this to be honest because prior to surgery I was a HUGE sweet eater, now its really in check aside from the dark choc, I don't eat sweets.....
I love my sleeve, it was the best money I have ever spent! I did not think I would lose this much in this short of a time frame, I had given myself a year. I would do it all over again, in a heartbeat! I look at obese people now and wish I could tell them there are other options out there that really work (I wont don't worry....LOL). I went to Mexico and I am so glad that I ran into Wasabigbutt"s profile because before I knew about VSG I was planning on getting the Lap Band....so glad I didn't do that!!
Thank you to you all, I am on here everyday and look forward to reading your stories. I will keep you guys updated on my progress put I can tell you I think I'm going to lower my goal weight to 160....we shall see.
I am so excited to report I meet my goal on my 5th month anniversary! I went from 308 to 208 in 5 months, that is still so crazy to me!! I am now wearing a loose size
