Let's start with the numbers
Start weight pre op: 383
Weight before surgery:330
That's right a loss of 89 pounds total.
11 MORE POUNDS TILL IVE LOST 100 POUNDS!
This week has been good. Haven't got my daily walk in cause we were hit by a ice/snow storm. So been having to exercise inside. I'm gonna try a zumba for beginners DVD I checked out from the library. I thought I'd share a grocery find at Wal-Mart I found in the salad department. A salad mix that is cut up really small. Which is good If your new pouch has a hard time digesting salad. They had five different flavors. I got southwest and bbq ranch. They come with dressing,toppings and lettuce mix. They run about 4$ a bag. Pictures included..
I made a really good chicken salad.
3 cooked chicken breast cubed
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup chopped celery
Salt and pepper to taste
Put in fridge and chill before serving

Let's start of with the dreaded thanksgiving holiday. I had planned to just stick to plan and eat protein. The plan went out the window. I did eat some ham but then eat a spoonful of sweet potatoes and macaroni and cheese. I was stuffed and already in pain. I didn't get all my protein in that day. I have now decided I'm only eating Turkey when Christmas comes if we cook a big dinner. I might just cook my boyfriends favorite food and that's it!
My weight went up a bit, but I went back to eating right the next day. The problem I face is my brain trying to convince me I'm hungry at night. And my Dr. Says only three meals and two snacks nothing else. Its so hard to break old habits of staying up late and eating junk.
This month I planned every day of the months meals. And have found a great chicken salad recipe and I made a tuna salad to eat. I plan on cooking pot roast,lean pork chops,chicken burgers no bread,spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce.

This week has been better. I have been weighting my lean protein and measuring my fruit/veggie. First things first for those of you who don't know my starting weight was 383 pounds. Surgery date 313 pounds. And right now 297.0 that's 87 pounds total..I just noticed that my size 28w blue jeans are to loose so I've got to buy a belt or smaller jeans. My walking outside everyday has been stopped for awhile because of our weather.it's been freezing rain and icy. So I will exercise inside doing stationary bike and sweating to the oldies.

Ok, I been bad...I been eating kinda wrong. I wasn't weighting and measuring my food. My Dr. Advised me to eat 2 oz of lean protein and 1/4 cup non starchy veggies or fruit. And not to focus on calories but on protein,carbs and fat..I get 90 grams of protein. And will now Keep carbs and fat low.Maybe this is why I had hit a stall and am losing slow. So I've start measuring and weighting my food well see next week if it makes a big loss.

It's my 3 month Mark tomorrow. I have great news my scale it said 299.2 this morning..IM IN THE TWO HUNDREDS! I haven't seen the two hundreds in 5 years. It's amazing how much I've lost since surgery. My three month Dr. Appointment is Friday for routine weight in and blood work. I also took my measurements again my waist used to be 67 now it's in 40's...wow! I am finally small enough that I was able to buy a digital scale. All these accomplishments make me happy and pleased with my progress.

I'm stalled I'm not losing. Now I have ate a few things I shouldn't. Its really hard to break old habits But I'm both on track. I ate no Halloween candy-bonus! I'm kinda hungry every once in awhile. But I'm not sure if it's head hunger or real hunger. I worry too much..I have a bad habit of stepping on the scale every morning. I'm promising to not step on scale for a week. I will weight in next Thursday. I will eat my protein and exercise..no things I shouldn't eat! I need to Learn to say no! To anyone offering food..
Last weekend I went on a singles retreat here at a church camp called falls creek. The cabin we stayed in was nice. I made sure I packed the right foods and ate what I was supposed to. A lot of people ask question. Why I wasn't eating what they were serving but I wasn't shy and explained I had surgery. And it struck up a lot of conversation. Here's three pictures of outside cabin.
