Uuugggghhh…seriously scale? Seriously?

Okay, so I’ve been talking on my vlog on YouTube about my goal of losing 100 lbs (since my highest weight) by Valentine’s Day.

A couple of weeks ago I was really unsure about whether I was going to get there, but I’ve had great losses the past few weeks (last week I lost 8 frickin’ pounds!) and I was pretty convinced I was going to get there.

In fact, on Friday, I weighed in at 361 – just 1 pound shy of my goal. Awesome…6 days to lose 1 lb.

Yesterday morning…360.4. So close.

This morning…360.2. Oh come on now!

Tomorrow I’ll probably be 360.1, FFS.

It’s not really a big deal, it just figures it would happen when I got close to a milestone.

Now, it is Aunt Flo’s time to make her appearance, and I have been feeling really bloated, so it’s highly possible that is skewing the numbers, but still…really?

Hope it’s good news tomorrow 🙂

Photos: Comparison Body Shots – 2 Months Post-Op

Hey all!

So I got my stuff together and did some photos today and took the time to do some side by sides.

I have to admit that the front-on photo shocked me a bit – especially from the chest (ugh, much smaller) up. I have a neck! And a little shadow where my collarbones should be. That’s awesome 🙂

Planning on putting together some side-by-side photos later tonight 🙂

Woohoo! 2 month surgiversary….

Okay, yes. I wanted to post on Wednesday, but it didn’t happen. What’s new? LOL

2 months have passed in what seems like a flash, and yet at the same time parts of this journey have seemed like an absolute eternity!

Sooo…what are my totals looking like now? Here’s a rundown of my first 2 months:

Highest Pre-Op Weight: 460 lbs (September 2012)

Pre-Op Weight Loss: -40 lbs

Surgery Day Weight: 420 lbs (November 30, 2012)

Week 1: -11 lbs

Week 2: -8 lbs

Week 3: -3 lbs

Week 4: -3.5 lbs

Week 5: -3 lbs

Week 6: – 8.5 lbs

Week 7: -4 lbs

Week 8: -5 lbs

Week 9: -5 lbs

Total Loss Since Surgery (51 lbs/2 months)

Total Loss Since Highest Weight (91 lb/4 months)

As far as eating etc. goes, still getting in 500-600 calories a day, 80-90g of protein and 20-30g of carbs. Doing good with water/liquids and vitamins.

Sleevie Wonder is still a total food slut and seems to accept pretty much anything (not sure if that will ultimately be a good or bad thing!). Every now and then he gets a little cranky when I eat a bit too much or a bit too fast, but even then it’s just an uncomfortable feeling, nothing more.

Overall I am so thrilled with my progress, and creepin’ up on 100 lbs lost since my highest weight 🙂
