My Progress!

Late Update!

I wanted to post the above picture so that you guys could see how awesome Tanner is doing. He continues to work out hard and follow our eating plan without too many complaints and he is really enjoying all the accolades he is getting for his new look! It is so exciting to see!! The before pic is actually from last year, but essentially, it still shows off his weight loss. He may have even gotten a bit heavier since the top picture was taken.

I have to apologize for being so derelict in my blogging duties. I meant to update things Tuesday for my two month surgi-versary, but kept waiting for Erik to take my pictures and get my measurements. He’s working his second job now, so it was tough trying to coordinate our schedules. I tried to enlist a friend to come over, but both of my off days, something came up and she wasn’t able to make it. I finally did get Erik to take my measurements and I'm including them below. I can't believe it is up to 20" already! Awesome!!


I only lost a pound this week, but considering I lost 7 last week, I’m not going to complain (too loudly). I think I may be around that time of the month so I could be retaining water. My back has been sore for the last week…not sure if that is due to the period that may be on its way or what. It has kind of impacted my workouts, but not too badly.

I am currently up to 20 minutes at a time on the treadmill. I hate every single second of it, but I do it! Treadmill walking just isn’t any fun, but right now, it helps to have a little support for my back vs. walking outside. I’ve also been going to the pool and continuing my workouts there so I know I’m doing all I can to facilitate my weight loss.

Another reason I have been reluctant to blog is because I have been had a pretty crappy attitude. Some stuff happened with Erik over the weekend, nothing major, just annoying crap that happens when two people live together and he always has a hard time adjusting to working his second job (he doesn’t work it over the summer) so he gets kind of whiney about it which is annoying because I am working just as much as he is. It probably doesn’t help that I could possibly be PMSing so more sensitive than usual, but I just wasn’t in the mood to get on here and be a negative nelly.

Overall, I am very pleased with my progress so far. Waiting on the cups of the 380’s/370’s and can’t wait to cross over finally! I doubt I’m going to hit my goal of 375 by the end of the month, but I’m doing everything I possibly can to get there so we’ll see!

If you didn’t see, I did add a recipe to my recipe blog and hope to update several more over the next couple of weeks. I’ve tried some new ones recently that were very good so I can’t wait to share them!

Hope everyone else is doing well in your own weight loss journey :)

Tanner looks great. You must be so happy for him.

You are also doing so well. You will be under 380 before you know it. Then it will be on to the 360's. :D

Want me to come smack Mr. Whiney around for you a little bit? lol

Dominique said...

What a handsome young man! And you are progressing so well too! Hey, a pound a week sounds just great! You should be proud!

You are doing so well--give yourself a big pat on the back! Incredible. Kudos to Tanner too--he looks great!

Whoops, my comment posted before I could type in who I was! It's me--the lurker that doesn't comment often.

I'm so happy to read that you're doing well, losing weight and exercising! Twenty minutes! Wow!!!

I remember when you could barely do five minutes. You're really making tremendous progress. Pretty soon you'll be able to walk outside and I think that'll make a lot of difference. I personally hate the treadmill more than any other piece of cardio equipment. It bores me to death! I'm not exactly fond of any of it, but at least the elliptical, crossramp or bike are slightly more entertaining. :)

Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see pictures of you as you shrink before our eyes.

Ashley: Thanks hun! I am too :)
IQ: I still can't believe I'm under 400 lbs!! Unreal :) And yes, can you please come give him a swift kck in the arse for me? He just needs a little reminder that we are BOTH working lots of hours lol. We kind of had a blowout over the weekend because of his attitude and he's been much better since so maybe he got the message :P
dominique: thanks for the cheers :) I'm enjoying every OUNCE I lose!
Veronica: thanks for your support as well!!
Diana: I was just looking at your blog the other day and reading about how hard you've been working lately! I meant to post, but must have gotten sidetracked.
