Ten Month Surgaversary

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.

10 Month Surgaversary

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

Here’s a side-by-side image of me from November… When I was at 75lbs down. I never really notice the difference as much as I do when I put these images side-by-side.

Blogging plans

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.

I am so excited about finally being in Onederland! I haven’t been here since like 2005-ish. It’s insane. I feel so great. Truthfully, I would be happy if I stayed this weight… but my goal for myself is 150. Surgeon’s goal is 130.
