This week’s progress was a surprise. I lost what I’d gained last week due to water retention, and then a little extra. I will note that I am still retaining water (stupid hormones; it’ll stop this week thank goodness), as my ankles are a little puffy and parts of me are still swollen.
As I move forward through my 8th month of post-op life into my 9th, I’ve decided it’s time to tweak things again to make this tool work to my advantage. I have 73 pounds left to lose to get to my goal and 23 to get to my surgeon’s goal.

We are slaves to cardio machines at the gym, when the weights are where we really should spend more time to get the biggest bang for our exercise buck. I’m just as guilty of this as anyone else–here’s my evening’s cardio. Not too terrible, but could be better.
In any attempt to lose weight and get healthy, exercise is a must. I know, biggest understatement of the year. I don’t claim to be a fitness expert but I do know that to be fit, one must reduce body fat percentage, increase lean muscle mass, increase stroke volume, and increase VO2 max. These are things the average bear doesn’t think about–hooray for having a biology background!
