Just a quick post to let you know I'm still kicking! I'm just a slacker. I went back to work to fill in for someone for a couple weeks and then left for a few days in Lake Tahoe with my sisters. Today I am back at work but only today this week.... I am ready to rest a day or two!
I will report that my scale was kind to me this morning :) The lowest I have seen in 18 years! I had expected it to go up with the travel (11hr drive where I ate a bag of BBQ lay's) We ate pretty healthy at the cabin, went out to dinner one night but all I had was a burger less the bun and a few pieces of calamari. I increased my water back to 60-80oz. Not sure what the deal is but I am not complaining! Maybe with my Vegas trip coming up in a couple weeks I will lose again? Maybe? It could happen!
I was laughing at my last support group about how before when I would go to Las Vegas I would look at all the menus online before we would go to see all the goodies I wanted to try... But now I was searching the menus in a whole different mindset... What can I have?
Got some bad news from my NP last week.... Looks like my cholesterol actually went up in the last six months. Not what I wanted to hear but I think it may have a lot to do with the fact that prior to surgery I ate very little meat and no cheese or milk products whatsoever. Bread & Veggies, that was me... So, I guess I have start watching the meats & dairy I have been choosing. High cholesterol runs in my family so it was suggested that I see my PCP and talk about medication. UGGGHH WTF? That was one of the motivations for doing this surgery in the first place...to avoid medication! Time will tell I guess. In all honesty I haven't been as active the past couple months as the first four but I am hoping that with the longer days and better weather ahead I will get back into it.
I am going to catch up on all the blogs tonight. (I didn't have internet in Tahoe) so I am WAY BEHIND!!! Promise to catch up though :)
