Back from the Blah

I know I missed a couple weigh ins, but to be honest, I was just done.  I thought I was done with this blog, done with it all.  I was still gaining weight like crazy after my unfill and I was just plain miserable.

I saw the Doc on Monday.  He gave me crap about gaining weight and told me that it's my fault and I need to get a grip (not that he was wrong) but sheez, it really didn't help.  I got a teensy fill (.2 cc) and did my liquids for 2 days and yesterday was my first day back on solids.  I stuck with soup for lunch because I still had some left over but dinner was perfect.  I had grilled chicken and veggies and ate it nice and slow and didn't make a pig of myself, thinking I needed a heaping plate.  I didn't have any stuck episodes everything went down nicely.  Doc said that the .4 cc unfill that I had shouldn't have made the amount of difference that it did so maybe I was just extremely swelled.  Makes sense to me, with throwing up on a weekly basis.

I feel like I'm back on track now.  I've already lost 5 pounds since Monday with just 3 more to go to get back to my lowest weight since surgery.  I did a really good cardio workout on the TotalGym yesterday, I'm super sore today.  I think that today I might need a little break.  Maybe I'll just go for a little walk.  We'll see.
Oh!  And I got my Weight Loss Support group up and running.  Lots going on over there and already have a few good people who are being active.  But being active isn't required.  You can do as much or as little as you like.  There are lots of recipes, inspiration and tips already posted with more being posted every day.  It's a closed Facebook group, meaning that we don't allow people to just come in and blast SPAM.  I hope that my readers will join us there.

That's all folks.  I'll be back on Sunday with a weigh in for you.  Maybe I'll even be back to my low.

Sunday Weigh In

Current Weight: 229.4

Last Week Weight: 228.6
Starting Weight (pre-surgery): 280
Goal Weight: 150
Dream Weight: 135

Another week of weight gain.  It's been a steady (but thankfully slow) increase ever since my unfill.  It's a little hard to take.  I know I'm not doing everything that I can.  And apparently I'm not ready to make those changes or else I would.  Losing weight is simple... not easy but simple.  I know what I need to do, I just haven't been willing to do it yet.  I really wanted to take a short hike today but it didn't work out.  Doesn't mean I can't walk around the neighborhood though.  I think I will do that.

My Weight Loss Support group on Facebook is beginning lift off.  If anyone is interested in joining me, I'd love to have you-  It is a closed group, so I'll have to approve you, but I'm planning to be on daily, so it shouldn't be more than a 24 hour wait to get approved.  Hope to see you over there.
