Way to go Sarah!!!

I am using yesterdays' number (if that is okay) since I did not weigh today. I had a lot of sodium for dinner. I did not want to post a higher number and then have a sudden whoosh down. lol

I’ll share here a most amazing moment – I’ve been wondering when anyone around me would notice my weight loss and say something. I’ve lost a good chunk of weight since September, and other than my husband saying something after I’ve prompted him, radio silence. Not a huge surprise or problem for me – it’s tricky for people to comment on someone’s appearance, I rarely do too. So I’ve been waiting with curiosity, not impatience.

This morning my toddler started the day :

Oscar (2 1/2) : “mama getting little?”

Mama : “no, mama is big. You are little.”

Oscar : “mamas belly is getting little.” (Yes, mama is apple-shaped!)

Mama : “oh, that’s so nice of you to say! What a nice boy to say that!”

Oscar : “papas belly still big”

Mama : (laughs, despite herself)

For what it’s worth, my husband weighs considerably less than me, but he does have a beer belly (except he’s French and it’s a foie gras, wine & cheese belly)

I’ve been floating around on this all morning!

Count me in. I weighed this am and I am at 254. I am excited because I have trouble getting into ketosis enough to lose weight. I am keeping track of everything and I eat 2 cups lettuce and 1/2 cup of celery/cucumber a day, so minimal 5 carbs and 113 grams of protein and 130 grams of fat to bring my calories up to RDA level. I should be losing weight but the scale has not moved in 2 weeks. Yesterday I cut my protein down to 60 grams which was what I was "supposed" to get at least when I had the lap band. So I am excited to see if this makes the scales move.

Hi Janie, welcome! I have been losing fairly consistently but need to keep protein limited to around 65 grams. Apparently our bodies, marvelous and sneaky, convert excess protein into glucose, and that holds some people back (women over 40 in particular).

Wasn't hard to exercise today as I weighed in at 174! I went back over my food and figure it is the 2 days of blood pressure medication I missed because I forgot it at home!! So I'm calling it water retention....I feel like missing my blood pressure meds is worse than if I had eaten off plan!! Happy Friday!!

Hi Jane!!

Sarah - Out of the mouths of babes!! Give Oscar a kiss from all of us!!! You are ROCKING it!!
