I've actually worn a bathing suit out in public (gasp). For me that's pretty huge. Honestly I don't like the way I look right now (30 lbs overweight) but I don't hate the way I look either. So that's progress!
However, I'm totally frustrated with the scale.
I'm over 3 weeks out from surgery and have only lost 10 pounds. The scale hasn't moved in 12 days. TWELVE days people!!
I'm eating less than 1000 calories, usually around 600-800, still eating mushies, etc. So WTF? I mean seriously!!! WTF.
Not once have I gone over 1000 calories. What gives??
I kind of regret telling any friends about having this surgery because in my imagination they are wondering what the hell is wrong with me, that I have surgery and still can't get my weight under control.
I mean, how is this even possible?
I even started going back to the gym! I'm not doing classes yet but I went 4 times and did the elliptical for an hour before going on vacation. During vacation I didn't even "splurge" because all I could really eat were protein shakes and water because I couldn't eat any of the food my husband grilled, like chicken and vegetables. The only food I ate was a scrambled egg every morning for breakfast. And greek yogurt in small quantitities.
Also, during vacation, we stayed at a KOA campground and did a ton of swimming in the lake and bike riding. I also walked a TON and played frisbee with my 3 year old, which means I spent an inordinate amount of time fetching his wild throws.
And.....nothing. No weight loss.
12 days, my friends. This sucks.
Here's my 3 year old roasting marshmallows. Then the bottom photo is me (in pajamas) with my 1 year old, the only picture of me on the entire trip (my 3 year old took the picture). Not sure why we are glowing heavenly white.....
