I’ve learned how to knit, finally! 😀 Now my hands can stay busy and not pick my cuticles and also keep away from bored eating etc.
I joined a local knitting group called Coffee and Crochet these ladies rock!
I’ve decided to hold off on the gastric sleeve for a couple of reasons. First, this gallbladder surgery I had about three weeks ago was in itself a reset of my entire system to be honest. I’ve had to gradually eat things due to it just hurting if I am mindless and eat too fast. Also, I’ve picked up great habits from the seven months pre surgery period.
I no longer drink carbonated anything, period. Secondly, I no longer ‘have’ to have coffee I can go with it, or without it. Those two things alone are just huge for me.
Lift me up in prayer with the night-time eating, one day at a time. I’m crossing off the days I don’t eat at night and circling days that I do. I printed out a monthly calendar for the rest of the year just for this habit I am working on establishing.
It’s through much help from God, tears and praying getting back up and knowing that the next moment I choose to keep going.
I believe that I can lose 100 pounds that is on my frame. I know that I have mussel now from the weight lifting. I will be taking TRX classes at the gym which is a suspension that uses your own body weight.
Once I am down about 30 or so pounds I will start-up with the plate weights again. I am learning to listen to my body. I’m starting from square one again but this time with more knowledge and experience.
I’ve slowly added more time to my cardio be it walking on the treadmill or using the elliptical machine. I can tell when it’s too much because my side will start screaming at me (where one of my 4 incisions was.) Pretty good duh dummy indicator! :p
There isn’t a time line for the fat loss, I’m going slow and stopping when things hurt. It’s also helping in other areas of my life as well.
I’m in the 250’s haven’t been there in 3 years. 10 pounds at a time, and a body size that glorifies God is the one I want to be at.
I’ll cross that bridge when I get to that point, meantime God’s got my back.
