Dead: one computer, Lost: 70 pounds

I am here. Kind of. I don’t have a computer so I am making due where I can. Today I’m not on a time limit like I normally am at the library. I can’t even pay bills, balance the checking account and check email in the half hour that I get at the library. Obviously, I don’t have time to stay on top of this blog. Sorry, peeps.

Onto the good stuff now. I am now about 4.5 months post op and doing well. I’ve lost about 72 pounds total, 55 since surgery. I am working out either at the gym or at the park 4-6 days a week. I am seeing a lot of toning and my stamina is definitely increasing. With that, my weight loss is not what it could be due to the additional muscle my body is accumulating. It’s bittersweet as I still have 55-60 pounds to lose before I get to my one year goal. I was told that it would be hard to get to that goal, but doable…I am determined, but won’t be too terribly disappointed if I don’t make it.

I had labs done last month. Everything except my iron was great. My cholesterol was better than ever, too. The iron thing isn’t anything new. It’s a family thing. A female family thing to be more precise.

Overall, things are good. My toe nails are always painted, my clothes are constantly getting bigger on me and my second chin is consistently getting smaller. I still love my VSG.
