Hey everyone! Sorry for the lapse in blogging. I promised I’d be back after my vacation with an update but then I went through a break-up and just needed some time. Don’t worry… I’m doing fantastic. I’m in a new relationship but I don’t want to jinx it by talking about it so soon. So, that will just have to remain a mystery for now. Lol.
Anyways…. Today is my TEN MONTH SURGAVERSARY!! Well, technically the 6th was but I couldn’t post in time. So, here’s an update photo.
Highest Weight (Jan 3, 2013): 251.6 lbs
Day of Surgery (Mar 6, 2013): 231.5 lbs
44 Weeks Post-Op (Jan 6, 2014): 170.6 lbs
Total Loss: 81.0
What’s been going on?
I’ve been slacking with tracking and the holidays were no help with staying away from sweets. BUT overall I went down a few pounds but the scale has barely been moving the past few months. To get back on track, I’ve decided to partake in the 5 day pouch test. Which you can read all about here: http://www.5daypouchtest.com/. It’s used to get back on track and is supposed to help shrink the pouch. I’m not sure how well it works but figured I’d give it a try.
My main goals for the 5 Day Pouch Test are:
- Start tracking my protein and water intake on MyFitnessPal again
- Get a minimum of 70 grams of protein in per day this week
- Drink a 64oz of fluid per day
- Get the scale moving again
For the near future, I’d like to do a review of my time away and what’s been going on. I also want to let you know how the 5 Day Pouch Test turns out. Then I’d like to set up some kind of schedule… post maybe twice a month or so. It’s hard to find the time these days and I’m starting classes in a few weeks, so twice a month might be all I can do.
Talk to you all soon.
