Checking in 

Just wanted to touch base since I haven’t written in awhile. I’m now at 43 lbs down. I’m 6 weeks past surgery. 

I’m not losing as quickly as I could, I had some carbs. Very small amounts, but apparently it takes virtually nothing to stall weight loss. So, I am recommitting to cutting out all carbs. Not carbs in protein, like greek yogurt, but bread, etc. I had a few bites of mashed potatoes yesterday for Easter. But, I’ve only got 75 days until the wedding, and I have got to lose as much as absolutely possible. 

My dress is still nowhere close to fitting. I haven’t tried it on yet, but I ordered it 2 sizes smaller and I am not there yet. So, I’m a little stressed. I am hoping I can still manage 20 lbs down more by the wedding. I was trying for 70 lbs down by the wedding, but I don’t think that is possible at this point. 

I’ve also started going back to the gym. Once I started back at work, I got off track there. But, I started back Thursday and went saturday and Sunday as well. Going back again tomorrow before work. 

I guess that’s about all that’s up with me! Check back in soon!

  1. 43 pounds in 6 weeks? Holy moly!
    You sound a bit down in this post, but I think you should be happy! You seem really in control and you know what you need to do. You’re doing amazingly and I’m proud of you!

    • Oh- 20 of that was pre-op diet! So 23 lbs in 6 weeks– not quite as fabulous. I’m very happy with what I’ve accomplished, I just need to really be a bit more disciplined about the carbs. They are my weakness. Thanks so much!!!
