In a few weeks I will be a year Post-op.....
Let me back up and say that September 25, 2008 I had the Gastric Bypass. This journey has been a good one overall. I did have some complications with my hair and fell back into the bad habits of not eating regularly, but all in all I had no serious issues.
I am still very pleased with my decision and the outcome. I am doing things I never thought of doing before. In June I ran a 5K. I've discovered that I love jogging/running (prayfully my knees will hold up).
I am back to SP because I have hit a serious plateau. For the last few weeks my weight has been fluctuating between 178 & 173. I need it to go in one direction so it's time to implement new strategies. SP played a critical role in my weight loss in 2006, so I decided to return to methods I know work.
As I stated in the previous blog (written last year) the weight loss journey one that requires commitment no matter what method you choose. I want to encourage all, non-surgicals & surgicals to be committed to the process and the results will come.
This week begins documenting caloric intake and energy output. I'm excited. The goal is to lose 10lbs by October 3rd. Join me!
