Week 117 Pst-Op update

Week 117 post-op weigh in, 
Starting weight: 151.9kg / 334.9lb
last week: 109.4kg / 241.1lb
Current weight: 110.0 kg / 242.5lb
Change: gain of 0.6kg / 1.4lb
Total Weight Lost to Date: 41.9kg/ 92.4lb

Yep, the sugar monster called and I answered every time this week.

The only good thing about it is that I know the reason and am not worrying about it. Still trying to go a little easy on myself with this journey.

I was thinking about the weight I have lost to date and can not believe it, over 40 kilos or 90 pounds.

I really do not have a right to be pissed off at myself because I don't like the fact that I haven't lost more. That amount of weight is fantastic; and I have to keep telling myself that until it sinks into this think skull of mine.

That said, I am definitely not happy that I gained weight this week, but I am not dwelling on it, because that just makes it worse and is usually followed by more weight gain!

Not sure how I will go this week either, which is a little scary in a way. But the most of the week, I really don't have a lot of control on the food.

I'm going away tomorrow for work, I am helping to act as a host of a 5 day tour that is heading to Cairns. It is based on cooking, so there is lots of food! For a few of the dinners I will actually be helping to serve, but for the rest of it, my job is to mingle and socialise with the rest of the guests and that envolves eating with them!

I am really looking forward to it, but am just a tad nervous. The thought of eating to fast and getting stuck has my worried, so worried, I don't think it will happen because I am thinking about it so much :o)

There will be breakfast everyday, so my main plan is to go light, I usually just have a large coffee in the morning and then something to eat something after about 10am. I think I should be able to stick to that plan for the mornings, I just don't have a good idea aout linches and I know the dinners are going to envolve lots of food, so I will be chasing food around the plate a bit and disguising left behind food! Either that or I will have to find a way to excuse my self when the meals come around and maybe miss a few servings :o)

We will see how it goes. I also hope to get a few exercise sessions in, don't really like my chances as it is early mornings and late nights, but here should be some time in the days and one morning is not the early start.

I'll let you know :o) have a great week everyone!

Week 116 - Post Op - late as usual

Week 116 post-op weigh in, 
Starting weight: 151.9kg / 334.9lb
last week: 109.5kg / 241.4lb
Current weight: 109.4kg / 241.1lb
Change: loss of 0.1kg / 0.3lb
Total Weight Lost to Date: 42.5kg / 93.7lb

I am not complaining about this loss. Because it is a loss :o) No matter how small.

This just proves what alcohol does to your weight loss journey, because that is the only difference between this wei in and the last. I went out for drinks Thursday night and then had another drink on Friday night. And didn't moderate anything else as compensation for it.

So lesson learned and just moving on.

I am having much more luck with the moving on process at the moment. I'm not dwelling on the small things at the moment, so things are looking up. The main difference is that work is actually under control. That seems to be the biggest contributing factor on my mental game! If I get too stressed out about work, I fall apart. So I just have to give up on carong about my work.

Yeah, fat chance of that happening. I take everything too seriously, so when it doesn't work out how it is supposed to, I stress and that just makes everything worse.

I need to work on that, because it is so not healthy for me. And it is definately not good for my weight loss journey, because as soon as I stress, I eat. And not the good stuff either.

So my plan this week is to stay away from the wine and try to get some exercise in. I did get some in last week, but not enough, only two structured sessions, so aiming for three sessions this week, so that it is an improvement on last week, that is all I can aim form.

Oh wait, just remembered I have a high tea to go to on Saturday and there will be wine at that... Okay, no other wine during the week and I will do my very best to get to the gym in the morning before I go (I do like going on Saturday morning - so I should be able to do this).

Trying to stay away from the goals that are just setting myself up for failure. Meaning no more pledges to work out seven days a week.

KISS - keep it simple stupid :o)

I like this saying :o)

Have a great week everyone, hopefully I will find myself updating more than once a week. Time just runs away these days.

Week 115 post-op weigh in
Starting weight: 151.9kg / 334.9lb
last week: 110.3kg / 243.2lb
Current weight: 109.5kg / 241.4lb
Change: loss of 0.8kg / 1.8lb
Total Weight Lost to Date: 42.4kg / 93.5lb

Yay, I am still loosing weight :o) gotta love that!

Now I am not supprised by this, I have been very good with my portions and while I am still enjoying some treats throughout the week, I have limited them and definately didn't overinduldge.

Now I just need to work on getting the exercise back into the mix. That would definately keep things going in the right direction!

The plan is to get to the gym after I get home from work as the morning doesn't really happen, I have been too cold and tired. Not sure if the evenings will be much better, but I will aim for it.

Best be off, don't have a real lot to add at the moment, so instead of boring you with nothing, I will sign off... Talk soon :o)
