Decisions…

So many decisions made in such a short time.  The biggest of which is that I am going to undergo bariatric surgery.  I do not make this decision lightly.  It has nothing to do with wanting to be thin, skinny, fashionable, etc.  This is purely about my health.  This decision is not for the faint …

Contemplation…

So, I know it's been a while.  Life is busy.  Eating has been up and down, which has really led me to a lot of contemplation.  And contemplation has led to some really hefty decisions.  My goal is starting this, and every other weight loss endeavor throughout my adult life has been about health.  Not …

Ultimate…

So, I'm changing gears.  Still eating healthy.  Still eating mostly whole foods.  Still staying clear of most sugar.  But I am weening off of Whole30.  I'm so thankful for the last 45 days or so of eating clean, clean, clean, but I can feel myself getting bored and that's never a good thing. Melanie told …

Update…

It's been a few days.  Mostly because things are going well.  Eating is well.  Haven't really fallen off the truck.  I've certainly had a taste or two off-Whole30, but again, I'd say I'm 95% on plan so and it's not perfection it's progression I'm looking for here.  The knee is coming along.  Much slower than …

Weekend update…

Been a few days since my last update.  It was a rocky weekend for sure.  For no reason other than I had a mild pancreatic attack.  What's that about, you ask?  About two'ish years ago I had a painful attack in my solar plexus region.  It was awful.  Couldn't sit, couldn't stand, couldn't get comfortable. …

Stitches — OUT!

I'm well on the road to recovery.  Yesterday I saw the doc and he took my stitches out. Feels so much better!  I'm working on my PT exercises diligently.  The doc has given me the OK to take a walk around the neighborhood or on a trail as long as there is no huge incline …

Sugar Dragon…

Yesterday was both a rough and busy day.  It started out great.  Met three long-time, great friends for breakfast at the Egg & I.  Ordered everything completely compliant.  No slips there.  🙂  I arrived at 9:30a, but my friends trickled in between 9:50a and 10:30!  Gotta love gals...we run on our own time most of …

Weigh in…

Today's day 30.  I made it.  Sitting on my butt most of the month, but eating healthier for sure.  And the results are in.  They are not grand, but I have lost 6.6 pounds officially this month.  I am down to 279.  I broke into the 70's.  I'm happy about that.  I haven't measured myself, …
