    Hey Ericka! Life is good! Am down 140 overall, am back to triathlon training on a serious basis. How are you? I still have about 130 lbs to go. Still watching NASCAR? Who was your driver? How is your sleeve and all associated with it? Any NSVs lately?

    I actually havent been keeping track of calories but I just logged yesterday's in and it was 1,120 cal...then 646 burned for gardening for 2 hours
    I don't know if that's right tho, that seems like a lot of calories burned for digging holes and pulling weeds, but my husband had a good point when he said when u garden your squatting, lifting, bending etc..
    I've been doing yard work everyday so I haven't been excersising on the elliptical.
    over 60 pounds lost is great! What have you been doing with calories?

10 week comparison pics

by PITSTOP on 03-21-2015 at 10:05 PM

Hi everyone, I haven't been here as much the last few weeks because life has been hectic. I'm doing fine, just busy! I just wanted to give an update on my journey so far. I'm 10 weeks out and down 47 lbs from my highest weight. I will never have a 3 in front of my weight again and I'm focusing on onederland! I look forward to catching up on everyone's journey and getting back in the swing of things....

1 week out

by PITSTOP on 01-16-2015 at 09:15 PM
So I had my 1 week post op appt with the surgeon and lost 12 lbs since surgery. The first 2 days after surgery was rough but it has gotten easier every day since. A week out and I'm finally starting to feel like my old self. I go back to work on Monday so I'll just keep plugging away. I'm so glad that I did this and it feels so good to see the results. I'm looking forward to see what the next few days, weeks and months bring!

Crap, gas pains!

by PITSTOP on 01-09-2015 at 07:41 AM
Checked in for surgery at 6:30 am, didn't have surgery until noon and got to my room around 4pm. It was a long day but I'm glad to have it over with. Gas pains have been atrocious! Been doing laps around nurses station all night and taking gas x strips. Getting my iv taken out this morning and as long as I pass the drinking test, I should be released this afternoon. Looking for to resting at home! Thanks again for all your warm wishes! It means so much during this time......

It's now or never!

by PITSTOP on 01-07-2015 at 07:31 PM
Surgery day has finally arrived! I check in the hospital tomorrow at 6:30am so it's looks like I'm the first of the day. I just want to thank everyone here for their unconditional support and priceless information. Im looking forward to the next phase of this journey. I'll see you all on the sleeved side!
