Wednesday Weight – Week 43

Scale –

  • SW: 284.6
  • Pre-op diet weight: 267.4 (surgery day weight)
  • CW: 185.4
  • Loss of: 99.2 lbs

Can you believe those numbers?!  Really, I’m having a hard time believing I’m so very, very close to 100 lbs lost!  I’ve been walking 3-4 days a week for 3 miles and doing pretty good watching my diet and it’s all been paying off with a fairly steady albeit extremely slow weight loss lately.

A stunning 0.2 lb weight loss this week, LOL!  I’ll take it as long as it’s going the right way I’ll claim every ounce!  I have noticed that as long as I’m exercising more than a couple days a week AND watching my food intake I still lose.  It’s little, this week is a good example of that, but it’s still losing.

Last week my husband and I were on a western Caribbean cruise.  It was an amazing experience on many different levels but I also experienced some seasickness that was so minor I didn’t even know what it was till the 4th day at sea when it cumulated into a rather bad day.  However, I had the patches and felt immediately better as soon as I put one on.  I ate very little but it was all protein and exceptionally good quality so I didn’t feel like it was a detriment to me.

I’m so close to my goal of 100 lbs lost that I can feel it! Hopefully within a month I’ll be able to cross that number off my list. I have realized the weight loss has mostly stopped at this point and it’s all on me if the last pounds come off or not.  The surgery has done it’s job and now it’s my turn.

Wednesday Weight – Week 38

Scale –

  • 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…

Wednesday Weight – Week 36

Scale –

  • SW: 284.6

  • CW: 189.8
  • Loss of: 94.8 lbs

Dropped a stunning 3.6 lbs this week!  Not sure what caused that since I have been not very consistent on the exercising and not very consistent on the eating.  I can only assume it’s muscle and water loss, which is not good, but I’ll know next week when the weight stays the same or there’s a gain to compensate for the large loss this week.  Actually, next week I would have a stall anyway because it’s the time of the month where I retain water.
