Almost down 130 Pounds!

Rate this Entry
I got on the scale this morning and nearly went into shock! I haven't been this low a weight since 1977... I am 4 pounds away from what I weighed walking down the aisle when I got married... and I was thin back then. I am thin now and have to do double takes, still, when I see the scale numbers or see myself in the mirror.

I have stuck to my new way of eating and have allowed myself to have a scoop of ice cream here and there, and occasionally I will have bread or something I don't eat much anymore. I began my pre-op diet in December 2016 at 270 pounds, had surgery March 2017 and my surgeon said I would probably get down to between 170-180. I was fine with that... but 142 pounds is more than I ever imagined. I feel good. I exercise still regularly and am happy with all the progress and hard work. And it HAS been hard work.

    Thank You! My diet is working and it's not even a diet... it's a way of life. I should have muscles the size of Popeye's from all the spinach I eat daily! I sure as heck don't feel 61 years old!
    I always say the sleeve is only a tool... I didn't go through all the hoopla of this surgery and all it entailed for nothing, and I am going to keep it that way.
