working through stalls

during the first two months the pounds melted away really quickly. the first week lost 20 pounds. then in may i didn't even get on the scale, because i knew that with the surgery my weight would actually be up a bit from the trauma of surgery. until mid june i would lose a pound or half pound almost every other day. i was sure hoping that this rate of weight loss would continue for a long time.  but, the weight loss has slowed down a bit.  i am not complaining - because it is still better than prior to surgery.  what has happened this month is that i will stall for a few days - or this month for a week then drop a few pounds at one time. today is wednesday and i hadn't been on the scale for 3 days and i am down 2 1/2 pounds since saturday - down 10 pounds over the last 23 days - three months ago (13 weeks) i started on my pre-surgery liquids and that is the date that i use for when my weight loss began - so - total weight loss 54 pounds!

11 weeks/or/2 months

eleven weeks that i have been losing weight - 2 months ago sunday i had surgery. wow!
not much new to report - haven't tried any extraordinarily wonderful new recipes - oh except did a spinach, bacon, swiss quiche on saturday that sure was delicious.  kind of falling into some easy routines regarding food items - things that work, taste good and are relatively easy to prepare.  my favorite protein right now is taking one of the new whey blue raspberry "bullets" and pouring it into the lemonade crystal light - YUM.  pretty hard to find though. we drove to 3 different GNC's on sunday before we found their last box. tasty and 42 g of protein! next favorite is the lean dessert whipped vanilla protein - makes a very nice treat in the evening.  going through the container pretty fast though because when i start blending sarah and terry want one too :-p
after 11 weeks - 47 pounds lost

10 weeks ~~

ten weeks ago today i started on my pre-op liquid diet... 
eight weeks ago today i had surgery. SO glad that God led me down this path to have weight loss surgery - no regrets at all!

of course during the first weeks the weight just fell off and continued to drop pretty quickly  up until around 2 weeks ago.  i feel that now, while i am still losing weight it's not as rapid. there is still a LOT to go but i am pleased with my results so far.

total weight loss to date in 10 weeks = 46 pounds!
