Weight Loss Update

March 17th, 2007 at 05:02 pm

Not to bore anyone but I wanted to update you all. As you may or may not know, I had gastric bypass surgery on Dec. 7th 2006. I weighed myself today and I have lost a total of 67 pounds since surgery. I have no regrets and am happy with my weight loss so far. I need to excersie more. I am hit or miss it seems. I am being honest. I just have this mental mountain. I know when I do workout I feel 600% better. As far as pounds gone, I am happy with my efforts.

I have no "set" goal except to keep being a loser. My son graduates from High School on June 3rd. So I want to look as good as possible on that date as my ex and his new wife and my old in law family will be attending so....I guess in selfish way I want to look good and not frumpy. I want to be able to walk in that church with my head held high!

I think I am doing well as far as eating right. I still can not eat bread....which is really OK with me. I used to eat too much of it so a change in the bread department is really OK in my book.

Well so much for my update. Thank you to all those who have asked or inquired. I feel blessed that I can share a bit with all of you. I have learned that we are all on some sort of journey. It is nice to share and nice to encourage someone else along the way.

    Wow, you are doing great!! My friend had hers two months before you, so you are on the right track with the weight loss. I would miss bread. Is it just not allowed or does it bother you if you eat it.

    When I eat bread for some reason it makes me throw up-sorry to be gross! I can eat cereal but only cheerioes so far. I can do small amounts of rice and potatoes but in excess I get sick. Bread is totally allowed but it must be toasted in some fashion in order for it to go down well.

    Thrifty Ray--wow on the June 3rd date! I wish I could be be thin naturally but it has been my life long struggle and it continues to be. It is a challenge-but life is full of challenges. Mine is in the food department. One day at a time....or one spoonful/forkful at a time. I have got to work out more.....that is really how to do it......moving at a high rate of speed.
    Have a good night everyone.
