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.
