My sixtieth week after Gastric Bypass

Finally Spring is here and as the weather is warm and there is no rain I am outside playing all day long. And just as my hubby said that as soon as that happened my weight would start to come off again and I would break my stall – Guess what he was right!!!

After being stalled and pretty much at a stand still for over 8 weeks I lost 3 pounds this week. I did lose 1 pound last week, but losing another 3 this week I am so excited!!! I weighed in at 181 lbs – that is a total loss of 105 lbs !! My next goal is to lose another 2 pounds by my next weigh in (next Monday) and get into the 170’s – OMG I cannot even imagine – last time I was in the 170’s was over 16 years ago, maybe even longer.

I would like to thank Mother Nature for getting her shit together and finally letting it be warm and sunny out so I can be outside moving my ass.

Here is what I ate so you can see each day for the sixtieth week:

(I am gonna add the times on as well)

Today hubby and the kids went shopping to pick out our new kitchen appliances. We went store to store as I touched them all before finally making my final decision. After that we went out to dinner. We went the Longhorn Steakhouse – we had never eaten there before. Let me say the food was A-Mazing!!! The service was not the best, but the food made up for all of that.

Hubby let me sleep in this morning and got my son off to school – love days like that. I was so comfy in bed because the cortisone shot in my shoulder kicked in and I was able to sleep on it with no pain – love that. Then I went with my BFF to Sears to order my kitchen appliances which I am beyond excited to come – they will be delivered on the 22nd and it cannot come soon enough. Then later I stayed up late working on the computer.

I caught up on the phone with an old friend who will actually be having surgery in July. Then I Spent the day cleaning the garage with my hubby to make way for all our upcoming Spring projects – gotta start with the hub of it all right? For dinner we had take out and I got a nice big Salad which was soooo yummy!!!

So that was my week – not bad. I did something right because I lost that 3 pounds!!!

As I have noticed before I may not be eating enough on a lot of days. I rarely eat breakfast – not my thing and I really never had. Probably not the best thing, but I am just not hungry or I forget. I tend to pick here and there throughout the day vs. having a meal. I try to have a protein coffee in the afternoon as my lunch and then I usually have dinner and some snacks at night.

My new goal as I stated above is to lose another 2 pounds this coming week to make it into the 170’s – I am going to kick things up a notch and see if I can do it.

STAY TUNED….
