I am now officially 2 months post op and down another 3 lbs this week.
Over the last week or so I noticed almost overnight that I had more energy than I have had for a long time, this was a welcome surprise. So what am I doing with this new found energy?
First I went through my closet and my dresser, every single piece of clothing I owned was put in a giant pile on my bedroom floor. I got rid of things that I simply didn’t like anymore as well as things that have gotten too big since surgery. I can’t begin to tell you how good it feels to put something on and see that it is too big, even favorite tops that I didn’t want to part with yet I had to get rid of some because they looked silly on me. In the last 2 weeks I got rid of 3 pairs of jeans because as soon as I started walking they were falling, this is a great problem to have.
Second I started working out again. I have started very small by doing a 21 day arm challenge and a 30 day love handle challenge, both of these I found on Pinterest. I chose the arm challenge because I am very worried about how much excess skin I am going to have hanging after I reach my goal weight and I am hoping that if I work my arms really hard starting now that maybe it wont be too bad. The love handle challenge I chose simply because this has always been a problem area for me. If I finish those and I still have time I will get on my treadmill, I try to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise in everyday.
I am going to be doing some progress pictures this weekend and I am going to try to remember to do my measurements as well (last month I forgot). I have already updated the “my progress” page with my current weight and losses.
