7 Months Post Weight Loss Surgery
WOW what a difference in these two pics eh? I am SO excited cause I got my results from my bloodwork today!!!
Trigyclerides - 121 - NORMAL!!! :)
Total Cholesterol - 175
HDL - 48
LDL - 111
A1C - 5.9
And my B12 was fine and my Vitamin D a tad low even with the supplement. My folate was a little high. Is that because I eat so much protein? I called for my results and she said she would have Dr. T call me when he's back in town.
I can't find my #'s from October. I have them somewhere. But my A1C was 6.4 which was decent for me but not great. But my cholesterol and trigyclerides were REALLY bad. So I am SO thankful!!!!!
We were on vacation when my surgiversary came around but I thought I'd post today. :) My highest weight was 267 and my surgery weight was 232.6. Today I weigh 153.4. :) I am about 18 pounds from goal. :) The last two months I've lost only 7 pounds but I think that's awesome and I am glad it's consistent. At this rate I hope to be at goal in October.
I typically work out a lot but the last three weeks has been hard since I hurt my back and then went on vacation. But this week my goal is to get back to 5-7 hours a week. Eventually I want to work out 8-10 hours a week.
I concentrate on protein first and watch my carbs. I get at least 70 g of protein a day but my goal is to get closer to 100 on a regular basis. I am still around 800-900 calories a day and very little hunger. I still get full REALLY fast with dense protein but I can eat 4-5 oz of cottage cheese.
I love my sleeve. The only problem I have in the continual skin issue under my apron but I know there is nothing I can do about that until I can have a tummy tuck. I am hoping for next summer. I am in a size 12 and if my stomach wasn't so bad I think I'd easily be in an 8 cause my legs and the seat of my pants don't fit in my 12's - only the waist. I am in a medium shirt. :) That feels AWESOME.
