WHAT?! Lydia it's not Wednesday. You might be thinking.
I know but hey you're getting a blog...isn't that good enough! Better than what it has been! hehehe!
As we know last week I went up to 201..again.
This morning I was just like whatever, I'm PMSing, I'm tired, I'm not feeling this today, I'll probably be a 250 again. Whatever.
But I stepped on the stupid scale and waited and waited and waited. Started to get mad...see I'm being a hormonal bitch! Why so angry Lydia. LYDIA SMASH!
Then the number popped up with 199.4! Booyah! I'm in "onderland" again! And this time I'm ready to stay here and get to crushing some goals...well more like killing some goals.
Here some quick stats:
Day of Surgery/Highest weight - 377
8/7/2013 - 199.4
Total lost - 177.6
Wow! It still just blows my mind!
So if it blows my mind...of course it blows everyone else's mind, when I talk about the surgery and my weight loss thus far.
And I'm getting to a point where I think on average the loss slows down for people but mine's not. I'm still averaging about 5-6 lbs a week. But I know the first 18 months is the strongest losing period...so who knows. But as this past almost 11 months has shown my body is not average. So I'm just going to go with it.
But once people find out how much I've lost, the next popular question is "What is your goal weight?"
My response is "I don't know. Just where ever my body feels comfortable at stopping." And then I get a look of confusion. Then comes the explanation that I was almost 400 lbs. Then the comment of "You were? You didn't look that big." Well I was. It's just funny how our bodies are shaped but I know from what Dr. Pullat has said, that all my weight was in my stomach...well still is.
Of ocurse, I'm super humble and nice when people give me that response but sometimes they get under my skin. Hell I'm only human...well super human but none the less still human! LOL!
I'm not sure how this entry took this turn but apparently it's something that's been on my mind.
Now I'm going to talk about my goals since I've achieved one of the biggest ones I wanted to!
My next goal will be weighing in a 188. And I want to hit that one before 9/12/13...which as we know is my 1 year mark.
And that means my total lost will be 189. At that point, I'll be half of what I use to weigh. Which is mind fuck in itself. That one I don't know if I'm ready to process yet. But looks like I'm going to have to be...it's coming.
Oh and I'm having Brent hide the scale from me. Because I do weigh myself everyday which I know isn't healthy...especially because I feel sometimes...a lot of times...it dictates my mood for the day which isn't good.
And also because I feel as if I'm coming into the stage of my process where I'm working on toning and doing all these yoga and barre classes, along with my cardio...and I'm sure the scale will be up and down and I don't want that to discourage my progress or mess with my head. So I figure a way to combat that is hide and just pull it out on Wednesday morning.
Let's see how that works! Xoxo
