Well well well...

So...I WAS stalled.  Saturday, hubby and I went to Canadian bingo, and afterwards, hit a local Mexican joint that we haven't been to since around April or so.  Now, typically when I go, I'll down more than half the basket of chips with salsa, chug a gigantic strawberry margarita and eat all my food.  This was a completely different experience.

1.  I drank iced tea, but only drank 2 sips of it.  I hate not being allowed to drink while I eat, but I'm getting used to it.

2.  I ate exactly 4 tortilla chips.  Not half a basket, 4.  They were delicious.

3.  I ordered a gigantic burrito.  I was able to eat about 5 bites of it.  I took the rest home and had dinner that night, some for breakfast and wound up throwing the rest away.  4 meals for one low low price, boo ya!

I am convinced that a wee bit of carb loading, along with my swimming, broke my stall.  I used to do my 38 laps, which is half a mile.  Let me back that up.  When I started in July, I'd do 1/4 a mile.  Now?  I'm doing 76 laps so I can swim a mile.  It takes me awhile, but it burns around 1400 calories in the process.  Combined with my weight training at the gym, I feel I'm making real progress.  So much in so that I'm down 6 pounds since my last post.  I'm 16 away from losing 100.  And!  I REALLY REALLY wanna get a reward tattoo when I hit 100 pounds but....

I also just booked a trip to Disney for the family.  I haven't been in about 18 years.  My son and husband have never been, so I'm super excited.  I booked us a luxury condo that's about 2 miles from "The World".  I think out of the 3 of us, I'm the most excited.  Sure, my kid likes Disney, but not even remotely close to how much I do.  I'm a bit obsessed.  Always have been.  And I adore my 5 Mickey Mouse tattoos.  Our trip isn't until December of next year, so that gives me plenty of time to save $$ and to keep on shedding the fat!

Stalled again. Grrrrr.

Being stalled has got to be one of the most frustrating things in the world.  Pre-op, I didn't weigh myself.  This was mostly due to the fact that the scale didn't go up as much as I weighed - the cut-off limit was 350 lbs.  So, I couldn't weigh myself even if I wanted to.  I'd get weighed at the doctors, but tell them not to tell me.  

Anyhow, now that I CAN weigh myself, I do it every single morning, like clockwork.  I really shouldn't, because all it does is drive me nuts.  BUT!  When I am stalled, it alerts me to this so I can make adjustments. 

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, y'all.  I am having my ass handed to my by my personal trainer at the gym.  She works me GOOD.  I swim laps three times a week, for at least an hour at a time.  I am getting at a minimum, 60g of protein a day.  This was my nutrioninst's minimum daily recommendation.  Now, I was in her office last week all in a panic, over my carb intake.  Because I have days where my carbs equal my protein.  But, she told me that 90g of carbs is my limit.  And, she would like to see my up my protein, so I do know that I need to do that.  It's just so hard.  The food addict in me still wants everything to come from food, not supplements.


Chugging along...

I feel like I've got nothing to update about, but I haven't updated in awhile.  Weight loss is going ok, I think.  I'm pretty close to 80 lbs. lost.  When I lost 100, I'm FINALLY getting my Hello Kitty reward tattoo.  I hope it happens soon.  The pool/gym are going well.  The gym nearly kicked my ass this morning.  I usually eat some carbs in the morning before I go - my breakfast of choice is Cheerios.  Today I decided ah, let me try some oatmeal.  Oatmeal is one of those foods that I REALLY want to like.  Unfortunately, I do not.  I ate maybe two spoonfuls of it, if that.  And literally, at the gym, had zero energy to work out.  In fact, I had to sit down twice because I almost passed out.  I really hate that light-headed feeling.  It's no bueno.

Tomorrow my baby starts 5th grade.  I'm thinking my gym/swim schedule will change a bit.  Right now, Monday, Wednesday and Friday first thing in the morning, we swim, and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are gym days.  I am thinking that I'll keep swimming in the mornings with my husband, but then in the afternoons after school on non-swim days, me and bub can swim, so on those days, I'll work out twice.  Any little thing I can do to burn some extra calories, tone and get fit works for me.
