Time to work!
I think the worst part about blogging is coming up with a title lol So this is going to be really confusing. One post, I say I'm in a stall and the next I'm supposedly not. Truth is. I've only lost about 2 pounds in the past week and a half to two weeks. To say it's frustrating is an understatement. However, it's really my fault. I haven't been exercising and I haven't been able to get my water in like I'm supposed to. Truth is....I constantly have to remind myself of why I did this in the first place.
I had my one month appointment yesterday (technically today is 5 weeks). I told the PA that my scale hasn't moved in over a week. She said I needed to up my calories and get in at least 1,000 calories all while keeping my carbs down to about 35. That is difficult! The great news though is that I was cleared for all exercise! YAY! So to celebrate, I went and joined the boxing club and did a class last night. It felt so wonderful to actually be doing something. Granted, I couldn't keep up with everything but I tried my best and that's all that matters. I even got a new pair of pink boxing gloves for signing up. I already had a blue pair so I opted for pink :) Something odd about pounding on a heavy bag with pink gloves lol I haven't fully decided if I'm going to go back tonight or if I'm going to do every other night and on the nights I don't box, I'm going to start a strength training routine and do intervals on the treadmill.
Can you tell I'm ready to jump start this thing?? I am down 30 pounds total from March 5 when I started my pre-op diet. My doctor's scales say a little differently but for consistency sake, I'm going by mine....plus I like them better lol 30 pounds. Some would say I'm a slow loser but I've never lost 30 pounds in a month and half before so I'm totally ok with that. In fact, I'm down to where I was when I got married 6 years ago. I haven't seen this weight since then. I got close the last time I was going to the gym but my body just stopped losing. My PA wants me to lose another 22 pounds by the time I go back (in 2 months). So that will be 52 pounds total. Wow. I've totally got this!
