Wednesday Weight – Week 38

Scale –

  • SW: 284.6
  • Pre-op diet weight: 267.4 (surgery day weight)
  • CW: 193.2
  • Loss of: 91.4 lbs

 

Last week I had a gain of just 0.5 lbs and I glossed over it even though I knew I was risking a stop to my weight loss because I had just stopped exercising AGAIN.  This week I have a whopping +2.8 lbs on top of the 0.5 lbs from last week, which means I’ve actually gained 3.3 lbs in the last two weeks!  This is serious because I knew from my week-to-week chart that my weight loss was slowing down more and more.  To start to gain now would be a very bad move.  I still would like to lose another 20+ lbs!  So, back to the drawing board and charting my foods and proteins and sugars.  I have a strong suspicion it isn’t the lack of exercise but the increase in sugar that is undermining my ability to lose more!  In fact, it isn’t a suspicion, I know I have been letting more and more sugar in and you know what?  Most weight loss surgery patients can’t tolerate alcohol after surgery, well I think my demon is still going to be sugar!  In the next week I want to log my foods to see if I’m right and then to correct things.  Till then, pray for me…

Love and God’s blessings,

Wednesday Weight – Week 32

Scale –

  • SW: 284.6
  • Pre-op diet weight: 267.4 (surgery day weight)
  • CW: 195.8
  • Loss of: 88.8 lbs

 

I’ve been making an effort to eat better with higher protein and more liquids.  It’s paid off this week and I have a very nice 2.6 lb loss to show for it.  I have also upped my physical activity although I still don’t do a regimented exercise plan.  I’m going to coast like this through Christmas and New Year and then buckle down with some sort of exercise plan.

Merry Christmas all!

Love and God’s blessings,

Wednesday Weight – Week 31

Scale –

  • CW: 198.4
  • Loss of: 86.2 lbs

I was in Michigan at the in-laws house last week and completely forgot to take my weight. Technically, I’m not sure they have a scale so I just skipped it.  I weighed myself when I got home last weekend and it showed an impressive weight loss that I knew must just be dehydration from the traveling. Ends up I was right because today I was back up to almost the same number as two weeks ago.  Ugh, another stall… I guess I might have to either up my exercising OR eliminate all the little snacking I have been doing with chocolate covered almonds and a handful of carbs (homemade bread!) a day.  Otherwise I will not just stall but plateau and maybe even stop losing altogether.  I’m not ready for that so I must change something.

In other news, I bought a swim suit!  Ready for this?!?  Size 16!!!! *mad maniacal laugh*… I haven’t been a size 16 since high school!!!

Love and God’s blessings,
