Weigh-In (Week 27 Post-Op)
Posted by Lisa on 07.19.10
Despite what the opinions of the majority may be, I’m NORMAL!!! That’s right!!! I lost 3 lbs. this week which puts my BMI in the NORMAL range!!! At my heaviest, I was in Obese Class 3. When I had my surgery done, I was in Obese Class 2. In just 6 months I am now NORMAL!!! I can’t quit putting the word NORMAL in caps.
Just 7 more pounds and I will have lost 100 lbs., and 13 more pounds and I will reach my goal weight! In the beginning I was wanting to reach that goal by my birthday (August 24). Right now, I don’t even care when I hit that goal. I’m so content with how I look, it’s unreal. I don’t remember a time in my life when I have had this kind of confidence in myself.
In the next week, I’m really setting a couple of goals for myself. I need to get back to my Couch to 5K training, and I also need to start incorporating weight training into my exercising. At my 6 month check-up that was the only thing that the doctors could see needing changed up in how I eat/exercise. That is going to help tremendously in getting the loose skin toned up. There is a good chance I won’t need any plastic surgery at all. I’m shocked at that. I have some saggy areas, but from what I have been told, it’s nothing that weight training won’t take care of.
Now, the ‘girls’, we definitely need something added there. They have nicely deflated. Think pancakes. Ugh.
Wow, what wonderful news! I too strive to be NORMAL one of these days. lol. Congrats Honey!
