This morning was a very happy surprise. Gold Star Happy!
Weigh in : 241.2
That is 59.8lbs lost... so, between you and me..... let's just call that 60!! :)
60 Fraking Pounds!!!!!
I would also like to note - mostly for myself, that I really believe that I can attribute my loss at the end of this month to my water intake finally increasing again.
It is so damn important to get the water in. I'm feeling better, I look better, I have better movements and more regular(!!), and I find that I'm not eating as much. I was actually eating when I was thirsty. Now I make sure that I take water with me ever where.
I've been doing other things right too, and got back on top of being very strick with my WLS directions:
1. no drinking with meals
2. stop eating when I'm full (this is a HARD one for me who is a classic stuffer, think.... wolf gulping food down at a kill)
3. More Protein
:) Tamzin, keep at it and before long you will be in the 230's.!!
I also spent some time reading through all my monthly and bi-monthly reports. Its good reading for me, look back, see what I was thinking, what has changed, how I feel, how I felt.
I remember distinctly being 231lbs in college, and one of the mens athletic team (that I was a member of the womens section) bothering me about it. It will be unreal to be back down there. The lowest adult weight I remember was when I was 25. I was 195lbs for about a week, but that was serious starvation dieting for an event and a dress that I had bought...
Its very exciting to think about getting down to that weight. I already look so different, its going to be very interesting!
In fact, I'm at the office this morning getting a few hours of work in, and we have a brunch date at 10:30with friends I have not seen in 5 months. They are going to freak out. I'm kind of looking forward to it.
