    I also feel like the people around me must be tired of hearing about this topic already. It seems that way to me at least. And I am SOO grateful to have this forum community for support.

    I'm soo happy for you Christie13!!!
    Keep up the blog entries, it helps me have a comparison and a motivation, and I like knowing how you're doing.
    Glad you are having such a great recovery. I am not going to lie, I know that the scale drives some people nuts but I weigh every day. It doesn't bother me and I know that when I stall I need to up my protein. How did your weigh in go??

    I had to get a new passport in October because mine was full, no more space for visa/immigration stamps, so this time I got the one with more pages. It was just incredible to look at the two photos next to each other, my new passport and my old one which was actually not so old (4 years). The last time we used the old one in October the immigration officer looked at me twice and asked my children who I was....but I had to look at the photos before and after to really see why it was not obvious. During my last trip in December with the new passport, no more questions :-).
    I can imagine. I was looking at my old pic (which was expiring in August of this year so it was almost 10 years old) and I thought damn...I really have been fat for a long time. My face was round, round, round. Not this time. I am not even at goal but my face looked so good! I was so happy with it. It is such a relief to be happy with your picture instead of having to deal with it. You have lost a lot of weight I can imagine that your pictures were like 2 completely different people. My sister was the same way. After 100 lbs she is a completely new person. I never thought my sister looked like my mom because her face was really full. When she lost all that weight and had cheek bones I could see a lot of my mom in her. (Which is a blessing with my mom being gone to be able to see her face when I look at my sister.) I know my friend at work always tells me how much you can see the weight loss in my face and it makes me look different. (She is not one of those who says it in a condescending way either.)
    I will definitely take pics when I go. I am hoping I will be really close to goal by then because that is 5 1/2 months away. Hoping I can lose the last 34 lbs in that amount of time. Fingers crossed!

    I usually do. It is just today we had a lot going on so we got up and went running right away. And Sunday is the only day we go in the morning. The other days we go at night.
  23. Sandra3's Avatar
    Running on Sunday morning! Impressive!
    Apparently from what I was reading a few weeks ago, women will do better if they have protein before a work out, for men it's better after. The study was a comparison on how effective the work out was on burning out fat..
    For me the real workout was getting everybody ready on time for a brunch with friends, we made it before 11 AM, that was a big victory (my kids don't like to get up "early" on Sunday)...then I walked only 3.5 miles yesterday and my knee started acting funny again...I am dragging my feet here because a consult with a specialist is long overdue but it will have to wait until my next trip in February.

    Oh yes it gets better and better LeslieAnn! I'm so impatient though. I'd like to fast forward to a year to see where I'll be. LOL!!

    Wonderful post! Very encouraging for me only being 10 days post!! Thanks!
  26. Christie13's Avatar
    Leslieann!! You can totally go out when you are able to eat solids. My hubby is super supportive with ordering things that I can eat with him. It makes it super easy and makes me a super cheap date!! LOL. Remember to drink some water when you first sit down and then stop so there is time before you get your food. Let's face it....protein and veggies are on most menus with no problem.

    They have a free app by ZenLabs. I have done it before and I was a lot heavier then. I was able to run a 5k by the end. I will admit I did some days more than once until I felt comfortable with the run part. This time it feels so much easier due to the weight loss. I absolutely cannot stress how much I love this program!!! I highly recommend it!!

    It is amazing to me how water is hard. I mean, it is a liquid. No different than the others but for some reason so hard to go down. It is getting better but still weird. At least drinking my iced green tea I know I am getting in more liquids. That is always a worry for me that I will get dehydrated, especially since I am exercising.
    I hope you are able to find some relief for your injuries. That has got to be rough to not be able to do things and be sore.

    Haven't ventured out yet, but I'm thinking that planning ahead like Christie13 stated is our best bet!
    My husband LOVES to go out and eat and so far I have said no. Just not ready to do it. Surely, when I'm into the real food stage it'll be better.
