    Hey Julia - how's it going? Love your new avatar. Looks like you are doing great with the sleeve. Read in the paper that "Burgundy" closed in Cambridge and that made me think of you. Hope all is well.

    I'm doing ok. Weather isn't too bad lately. We have a few mild days and then go back to freezing. I'm at 52 lbs lost. My husband says he can really see the weight loss in my face and in my abdomen. I feel the weight loss in my butt, my boobs, and my neck. How are you doing?

    Hi Julia,

    I haven't been on too much. How are you doing? Is it freezing where are? Its single digits here and I can't keep warm.

    You are doing just fine... You are only 2 months out and lost 40 pounds I just looked and saw you had your surgery in October you are doing fine...that's 20 pounds a month we couldn't do that normally .. When I was at ww I only lost 2 pounds a week so don't lose sight of how well you are doing.
    If it makes you feel any better I am yo yoing between I71 and 169 because I have been at the Christmas naughtiest... And am eating carbs again. Hence my blog as I needed some inspiration.
    Don't panic you are doing just fine. I have stayed where I am for a month now...
    I am going home on the 10 January i am very excited.. I miss home. N.C. Will never takes the place of my home...although it's where I live right now... It's very beautiful but it takes some getting used to if you can live here in these mountains and survive I figure you can live anywhere!
    Keep in touch and let me encourage you ... You are doing so. Well...
    Much love Heather xxx

    Your lovely! And yes it does help and that's a brilliant idea! Short bursts never thought of doing that before.. That's what puts me off doing it I feel like I have to be on it at least half an hour!
    Good luck hunting let me know what you catch :-)
    Love Heth :-)

    Hey Julia yes I need a bit if encouragement to walk.. Have at last felt better just been having a lie in bed the extra half hour till 6 because I think I I have got over tired and become under the weather. It's snowed last night up here in the mountains and so I am not risking going into work today. I don't get paid enough to wreck our car trying!
    I bought some Hemp powder protein opened it up when I got home and found it had already been opened so now it will have to go back. Which is not so good as it is a 2 hour trip back to where I bought it from. So a bit disappointed. How are you doing ? Hows things with you? Happy Thanksgiving.. Love Heather x

I exercise almost daily and I feel so healthy and strong. As some of you know my passion for food starts witg working the earth. I am days away from starting my gardens & I can't wait to get out there and work up a sweat. I can't wait to be able to eat

4 months and 4 days post-op

by Joolah on 02-27-2014 at 01:58 PM
I am doing REALLY well. I feel great and am exercising 6 days a week. I am even training for a 5k in March, assuming all the ice is gone & the temperatures finally make it into the positive numbers, the race will be cancled otherwise. I have been waiting to post for the last 4 days, I wanted to be below 300#, I am at 300.2 AARRGGGGHHHHH. I am getting plenty of protein 60-80 grams daily, although I still have at least 1 shake everyday, as always I try to eat "real" food for most of

Its working!!!!

by Joolah on 01-24-2014 at 07:55 AM
3 months ago yesterday I had my gastric sleeve surgery. For whatever crazy reasons I kept thinking "its not working" well I was REALLY wrong. As of yesterday i am down 70 pounds and 69 inches since surgery day. I am amazed!!!! I knew I was wearing jeans I had been "saving until I lost a few pounds" and jeans that I bought before my daughter was born. I honestly NEVER imagined it be this much, this fast, this easy. I am even below my pre-pregnancy weight. I have had a few bad

can I really be changing?

by Joolah on 11-26-2013 at 11:52 AM
Today I experienced a startling change in myself. I was riding my stationary bike at 16-20 mph average on medium difficulty and I did it for 45 mins w/o breaking a sweat or wanting to stop. It was actually fun. I think I am seeing a time change in my attitude abt exercising as well as how long I can workout. I am so pleased w/how I am changing b/c of my sleeve.
