A few things....

So I asked at my gym about a personal trainer, but they don't have any as of yet as they have just open a few months ago.  The fellow that was there working asking me what I needed and I told him about my surgery, weight loss, diet and then the stall.  He offered to work with me and give me a few tips.  So yesterday I went in for my tip lesson and he asked if I were ready to work....I said YES.  After some running on the treadmill he took me to various machines and showed my some free weight moves and how to breath.  Well the breathing part was easy although I kept getting dizzy and afterwards my arms felt like jello.  Today my biceps hurt but not bad.  I am back down to my lowest weight of 188.6.  I just hope I can keep dropping.

Thanks for all of the comments.  I did call my surgeons office but he couldn't see me today and I have to drive back to Houston today for work.  I will make an appointment for the end of the month as it will be my one year bandaversary on the 31st.  I really wanted to hit 100 gone by then, but not sure I can.  At this  point only 8 pounds to go but that will be hard to do.

I was catching up on my blog reading today and saw where someone had asked you to list five things you like about yourself.....I think I can do that.....

I like my new body....I know I fret about not losing the last few months, but I have to admit I love my new body.  It isn't perfect or exactly where I want it to be, but I know it looks and feels better to do just about everything in life today versus this time last year.

I like my smile and face.  I am not sure what is making what look better, my hair being straight or my face being thinner.  Either way its a good combo.

I like my teeth and smile.  My teeth are straight and white and both of those came natural.

I like my toes and feet.  I have always thought they were cute.

I like my friendly nature.  As a travel nurse I meet loads people, but I think its my good nature that helps me make friends so easy.

Well thats it for today......


  1. Yay for getting back to your lowest - always exciting!

  2. Woo! That picture on the left is GORG! : )
    Great job on the workout. I find breathing difficult too, I always want to hold my breath while I'm lifting and had to work at the breathing.

  3. You can do it lady!! Good for you for going to see your surgeon...I'm sure he'll be able to give you some support.

  4. You are wonder woman! And you look great too! I am not ready for weights yet!

  5. Your so close to 100# down! Awesome job lady!!! Good job on going to the training session too, what weights did they show you?
