I'm still a loser..

which is a good thing! ..

1.2 lbs

I guess since I'm in the middle of that 'special time of the month' body has decided to not hang on to excess water or anything crazy like that.. and my PMS-type cravings have gone down quite a bit already..

I decided to break out my tape measure the other day and was happy (and surprised) to see -7 inches have been lost on my body since the middle of March..It really should be a rule for all peeps out there in bloggy land to take their measurements before surgery.. it's a great NSV!!

On Tuesday night I went to the monthly support group that my hospital holds ..I went over to where I thought it was being held and then it ended up being a different building I walked down the block with a women that just passed her year anniversary.. I love chatting with people that are farther ahead in this process.. (duh! that's why I blog and read others blogs)'s always a learning experience..When we were sitting around in the Post-Op group (after the bigger group meeting with pre/post op's mixed in) ..she said she was struggling with losing the weight and dealing with the compliments/attention and she wasn't sure if she was sabotaging herself to avoid those situations..

And after hearing her talk about that ..and reading other peeps blogs on this type of subject..I wonder how this might effect me ..and the peeps in my life.

I hope that everyone can keep up with growing energy .. I feel like I have this untapped reserve of energy deep underneath all my chub.. and with the 1st 25lbs I've lost.. I can see that it's right under the surface..and can only imagine what I'll feel like after a few more sets of 25lbs come off..

Till later my little bloggy peeps..


  1. This really is a transformative process, isn't it? It's not just about the el-bees.

  2. Great inches lost. I think it should be mandatory for all to take their measurements pre-op. It shows more than the weight lost sometimes.

  3. Measurements are definitely important. Glad to hear you are doing so well. I'm hoping that as I lose weight, my energy will increase.

  4. Congrats on those inches. Keep up the great work.
    I commend you for going to the support groups...not something I've worked into me schedule as of yet.

  5. Luck #7!! 7 inches is awesome! I definately agree that it should be mandatory. When the scale isn't moving it makes you feel like your hard work is still paying off!
