I am not even sure when my last update was. Not much has changed with me. Depending on the day that either upsets me or I am ok with it . Weight wise I still have 42 pounds to loose. The weight is coming off SLOW SLOW SLOW. BUT its not coming ON and I am maintaining. I am still working out , when I feel like it . I get chronic migraines and my botox ( treatment for migraines ) has worn of so the last month I have been in not the best shape mentally or physically . BUT I get the botox Wednesday so that's good.
I can say this , after 3 weight loss surgeries i have NEVER worked THIS hard to keep it off as I do now. On my good weeks I am at the YMCA doing Yoga, body pump, cardio funk and zumba 6 days a week . On a bad week I walk around my block 3 times a week .  BUT I also feel way better than i Have in a long long long time . Its a process. I have a feeling my vitamin and mineral levels are probably messed up ( blood work next week ) which may have something to do with my weight loss being so slow . So we shall see . I have to remind myself its not even been 6 months since my surgery .


  1. Glad that you are maintaining and working hard at making changes. It is definitely a very hard thing to stay on top of. Sorry to hear of the migraines, definitely not a good thing. Hopefully your blood work will give you something to go off of, regarding slow loss. Or it just may be having 3 surgeries. Since I just had the sleeve (from lap band), my understanding is its harder to lose with each one.

  2. I'm revising from band to sleeve in 10 days. Note to self: I will always have to work at weight loss. The struggle doesn't end. You're doing great. Celebrate the success. Tracey
