I can’t believe it’s been a year already! In fairness, it’s been a crazy year. On top of losing nearly half my body weight, I (along with the rest of the World) have been trying to navigate life during a pandemic. In a sense, I’m incredibly lucky to have had surgery when I did. AboutContinue reading “One Year Followup”

Happy New Year to Me!
How did I get here? I am five pounds from having a healthy BMI according to the BMI charts. Given that I have been seeing a personal trainer and have seen a significant change in my muscle composition, it feels likely that I’m already there given that those charts are averages and do not accountContinue reading “Happy New Year to Me!”
The gym where I meet with my personal trainer on Wednesday and Friday has a small personal training room (I say small but it’s not really small. It is just small in comparison to the massive two story gym.). The north and south sides of the room look pretty similar. Anyway, we have always workedContinue reading “Non-Scale Victory!”
A New Relationship With Food
I had my RNY gastric bypass on 2/20/20. From about 2 weeks post-op to some extended period of time after that (at least 3 months out), I was basically in tears at the drop of the hat because I couldn’t have some food item that I was desperately craving. I was not one of theContinue reading “A New Relationship With Food”
100+ Pounds Down
I’ve been seeing a personal trainer for three and a half weeks now. To say that I’m enjoying it might be a stretch, but I’m definitely enjoying the effects! I am now two days shy of eight months post-op and I have lost over 100 pounds. I am 45-50 pounds shy of what I considerContinue reading “100+ Pounds Down”
While I knew that the day was creeping up on me, I had no idea that today would be the day when I woke up. I had to meet with my personal trainer today and my alarm didn’t go off. So, I was very rushed this morning. Nonetheless, I hopped on the scale like IContinue reading “MAJOR Milestone”
Seven Months Out
So, here I stand seven months out from Roux En Y Gastric Bypass WeightLoss Surgery. The other day I got what is left of my hair colored. My stylist was asking about my journey. She was asking detailed questions. So, I confirm that the first few months were pretty bad physiologically and psychologically. So, sheContinue reading “Seven Months Out”
While I’ve still got a way to go, I’m starting to feel comfortable in my skin again. Major plus!
I haven’t posted in a while because my weight loss journey has been kind of a nightmare over the last couple of months. I had a 4-6 week weight loss stall in which I was bouncing between 212 and 215. Given that I was under six months out and I had not altered my dietaryContinue reading “Onederland!”
Could have just as easily titled this piece – It Is About Time! At the time of my last post, I weighed in at 209.6. I titled that post – Onederland Imminence and talked about how surreal my newly redound rapid weight loss felt as well as my excitement about creeping up on onederland. ClearlyContinue reading “Movement!”
