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!
