Okay....I’ve been a slacker!!  I’ve slacked on my blogging but in my defense I have not felt great the month of January.  I got some crazy upper respiratory mess that literally put me in the bed for (6) days.  My husband had it for that long too.  It was awful and it drained all of my energy.  But...I’m better and now ready to really tackle my new exercise regime.
As of yesterday (Sat. Jan 29th) I have lost 50lbs since November 9th.  Other than the upper respiratory thingy I had I feel fantastic!  I am losing but I’m definitely not eating enough food.  My doctor and dietician would not be happy with me but it’s still a full time job to eat.  

I do not ever get what I would say “hungry” and I have to remind myself to eat my meals and snacks.  There is nothing I really crave food wise except I still do crave chocolate but even if I take one bite of it...that is all I can handle.
I’ve decided that I’m a “five bite” girl.  I eat about five bites of whatever and then I’m done.  I still have not gotten throw up sick.  But when I do eat something that doesn’t agree with me I just start feeling really bad and I have to lay down for about 15 minutes until it passes.  I’ll take that side effect over throwing up or dumping as they call it in the “gastric bypass world“.  

Going to get on the band wagon with my exercise.  I have been walking early in the morning about 5:15am but I don’t walk far enough or long enough.  So tomorrow when I get off from work I’m heading up to the Family Y to get with the program.

I’ve had members come into my office that had not been in since before my surgery and at first think I’m someone because they don’t recognize me and second I changed offices.  I had two different men to go into disbelief that it was me.  One man said, “are you wearing your hair different?“..  I just laugh and say “yes and I’ve lost 50lbs.” He then says, “well I thought you looked lighter“  

But here are my pics..I’ll post the one from before my surgery, the next one is at 40lbs. and the last one is 50lbs.

NOW ONLY (50) MORE TO GO.......   :)

Love it
