2012 - I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs, the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

2017 - I'm preop for the Duodenal Switch procedure for my sleeve to help me get to goal weight....and to fix another hiatal hernia.

Stay the Course

well, I'm back up a little this morning,

weigh in - 271.0

I'm frustrated. BUT... I know that I am doing the right stuff. I need to keep drinking my water and not try to get crazy with the calorie cutting, keep getting my protein in and keep working out

It IS going to happen.  Of course the irrational part of my brain is going CRAZY! gaining gaining gaining... its going to happen. So, I'm trying to keep it quiet and just go about my day.

This weeks breakdown is good:

Calories: 1129
Fat: 46.2
Carbs: 102.8
Protein: 68.2

Calories: 1103
Fat: 42.5
Carbs: 96.5
Protein: 68.4

Calories: 1054
Fat: 43.6
Carbs: 100.6
Protein: 57.6 (meh)

Calories: 1139
Fat: 44.8
Carbs: 103.5
Protein: 74.8

Calories: 1029
Fat: 39.3
Carbs: 113
Protein: 70

Okay, calories are good, but I am eating too much fat and carbs.   Need to get in some more proteins, and since I'm still on soft foods, that means I need to get in some more shakes. This week I've backed off from them, and that might be an area that would help me make some improvements.

Okay, I'm already feeling a little better. I've lost 30lbs in 3 weeks. My poor body hasn't done anything that momentous for a decade, so I'm going to give it a break!  :) 

Today I have a light squat session at 11:30, and I have about 3 hours of cleaning that needs to be done, as well as grocery shopping, and maybe, a hair cut. 

So time to get to it!
