12 Weeks post-op!

We are finally done with baseball, I can't say I'm terribly sad to see it over, it was a great season for both big boys and for my young ones who played tball, but it's nice that Tuesday's and Friday's are now free, and with that I'm going to start doing something for "me" on Tuesday's, by going to water aerobics.

I went last week and weighed in and was at 54 lbs gone, today I weighed and I lost another 4 lbs, so here I am at 12 weeks 2 days with 58 lbs gone! I only have 2 more lbs to lose to meet my 60 lb goal loss in 3 months, I really think I can do it by next Friday!! I'm going to be working out hard, continuing to watch what I am eating, and just making smart and healthy choices. On our walk tonight with my husband, I told him that I am now at the same weight I was when we moved to Germany in 2005. I had done Weight Watchers for 6 months and had lost 30 lbs. I'm so excited to see that number and know that although the GVS has been the biggest tool so far in my weight loss, that me eating healthier and less and exercising have me back to that weight and soon to surpass it and be even smaller!

I did discover on Sunday that my taste buds have most definitely changed a bit. Someone had made banana bread and it was being raved about by everyone. I took a tiny bite and had to spit it out, it was too sweet for me. It's shocking to me, yet nice to know that I may not even enjoy the "sweet" things in life so to speak! :)
I find that I can get my sweet tooth taken care of through fruits and popsicles. I don't need things full of sugar, which ultimately makes me tired, unhappy, and well lets face it helped make me fat.

I went to my parents on Monday and my mom and dad and my mom's best friend all said they could see the difference. I'm still struggling to see the drastic weight loss in myself. Now, I do see a difference in my face. It's most definitely slimmer and I can tell that my stomach is much smaller. I do not see a difference in my chest, arms, or legs yet. I am going to start working harder on working out my arms and legs. I will get a picture of myself tomorrow and post it here tomorrow, so others can see the difference. It helps me to see pictures as well, so I can see what's really happening to my body and not just what I see (or don't see) in the mirror!
I am pleased to say that I'm down to 1X and XL shirts!!! Amazing to me. It's been so long since I could wear an XL shirt, and now not only can I fit it, there's room in it! I have only kept a couple pieces of my old clothes so that I can do the before and after picture, once I've reached my goal wight and size!!
