this has been a good week - lost 5 pounds. i haven't done anything different it just seems that there are weeks where the scale doesn't move, while my body is adjusting to everything and then the weight falls off. looks like i am averaging around 12-14 pounds per month now. was at alex's first soccer practice this week and saw mom's who i haven't seen since before surgery and one mom said "have you lost a LOT of weight?" and i told them about my surgery. so this is the first time that i ran into someone i knew who i haven't seen since surgery - it has been 18 1/2 weeks and 70 pounds gone!

i am so blessed that God led me into having weight loss surgery. every day has been great! i am thoroughly enjoying the new foods that i am eating - finding new recipes through beforeandafterhelp.com and also trying different foods at restaurants. last night we had olive garden and i got the parmesan crusted tilapia with squash and it is awesome. i have no idea what the nutritional count is for a full serving, but since i only eat less than half (NO pasta) i know that it is within what i should be having. and it is absolutely delicious!
weight loss to date 64 pounds!

.... and doing great. last week on august 6th marked 3 months since my surgery and my weight loss is progressing just fine. found another convenience meal that works - at saint louis bread company (panera bread) they have an asian salad with chicken and i have gotten that a couple of times without the wonton strips and with extra chicken - i remove most of the lettuce and it is a very tasty meal. friday evening we ordered carry out from olive garden and i got the parmesan crusted tilapia and it was delicious. i ate around half of the fish and some of the sauteed squash. on the 8th of august i reached 60 pounds weight loss to date!
