Well today I hit it…
100 confirmed pounds lost
Though I actually probably hit it awhile ago (My estimated preop weight was 475 but because scales dont go above 450 pounds, I was never quite sure) today I am at 350.
While I still have 150 left to go before I hit where I would like to be, being on the other side of 100 is huge for me, and that im here just a little under 3 months after my surgery is huge.
My losses had slowed considerably over the holidays (what with all the delicious junk laying around). So I made it a point to get back on track this week by going to the gym 4 times, cutting out all carbs (mostly anyway with the exception of salad and a few pop chips) and eliminating flat diet soda entirely in favor of water and Minute Maid Just 15 juices.
The result was that I lost 11 pounds this week, which has me falling right at the aforementioned goals.
I’m not sure yet what my next goal is. I know my long term is 199 pounds (ideal weight for my height). I am dabbling with 40 pounds by April. But my biggest Non-Scale goal, is that I would like to feel comfortable wearing a tank top this summer in public. Not just at the beach (which I have done before) but just out and about. I also want to wear a pair of cute board shorts. Generally fat guy board shorts leave something to be desired.
Next week is photo day, so I will post my progress photo then for anyone interested.
Estimated Weight Loss: 125 pounds
Confirmed Weight Loss: 100 pounds
Time elapsed since Surgery: 2 months and 3 weeks
