I made it to the gym Yesterday for a cardio workout. I did 35 minutes on the treadmill for a total of 2 miles. It was so hot and Sticky in there Yesterday that I didn't stick around too long.

Not too happy this morning. My nephew got a fat lip last night at the basketball game so he is embarrassed to go to school this morning. I just want some peace and quiet again during the day. Is that too much to ask for? Dh is off today too. He will be gone the next two days after my Dr. appointment because his Mom is having surgery and lives 1 1/2 hours away. He is going to stay and help her out. Looks like no alone time for us after all.

Martini you are exactly right. I should practice self confidence. It is a learned habit to me and if I don't practice it I will never get it.

Amber that is awesome that Tony bought you an outfit from Banana Republic and it fit. You are going to be smokin hot in it I am sure. I don't know if it will ever sink in for us. I wonder does all heavy people go thru this?

BWYA you always put a smile on my face.

Sara you are at a new low too my friend.

I have a friend that had gastric bypass she has lost 97 pounds her and I were talking and she can relate to my crying in the dressing room when something smaller fits, she just got into size 10 pants, she had really high blood pressre and diabetes and now is off all her meds, I am so happy for her, she is like but you did it on your own, I said so what, losing weight is hard no matter how you do it and she has to be especially careful to not cheat or she dumps which is no fun. ALthough I am jealous, she could never have kids so she is looking a lot more sexy, she doesnt have the sharpei look that I do, LOL And she is a little younger, LOL

Good Morning!!!!!!! I am off to the Dr. this morning. I haven't seen him in over six months. I am excited to hear what he has to say. He has no idea I have been losing weight.

I promise to be back later to do personals and post my weight.

I am sorry I took so long to report back. My Dr. was beside himself. He was in shock. He said he is going to tell all his patients my story. I was excited!! My meds are getting cut in half and I will eliminate one. So I am down to 4 meds with one of them being half the dose. He wants to see me in 3 months. He said he bets that when I come back I will be at 250 and below. If I am he will do some more eliminating of the meds. He also said that he almost bets by the time I reach 200 I won't be on any medications. My bp was 109/63 which is excellent. There is more to the visit but I am so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes open. I will be back in the morning for a full report and personals. Love you guys lots!!!!!!!!

I even made it to the gym for a 40 minute cardio workout after the Dr visit and a trip to the mall on top of the 1 hr and 10 minute drive each way.

Amber I am so honored to call you my friend. You are one awesome lady! My health is the absolute most important. Almost a 100 pounds ago I was seeing a slow death before my eyes. It was a very scary living nightmare. I never want to go to that dark place again.

Thank you Laura!! I love you to my friend....

Martini Thank you!!!!!!

Casey I was in tears after I posted the pictures and realize exactly how far I have come in such a short time. It was the most amazing feeling ever. I never really wore this color much before but I sure have got some awesome compliments in it.

Sara thank you so much girlie for the beautful shirt. I couldn't have taken that pic without you.

Phranquie thank you for the wonderful compliment.

The most awesome feeling ever at the Dr office was when the Dr asked "When was your procedure again?" He was meaning the lap band. I was going to have it done last year and didn't go thru with it obviously. I said "I didn't have the lap band. I did this all on my own." He hugged me and said "Reva, I am so proud of your success. I wish all my patience had the courage and determination as you." "I am going to see you thru this with whatever I can to help." My Dr. is the absolute best. He made my entire day. His goals for me is to reach 250, then 200, 180 and finally 140. My first goal was to reach 170 but he feels as though I will continue my journey once I reach that point.

So, I have a challange to reach 250 by May 16 when I go back to the Dr. I am going to bust my tail to ensure I surpass that goal. I love a good challenge.

I topped the day off with a trip to the mall. I bought myself some new perfume, a pair of blue jean longer shorts in a size 18. I want to fit into these by summer. My jeans right now are a 22 and fall off of my butt in the back. I also bought a cute pair of flip flops and a pair of black capri sweat pants to workout in. I just love the store called Deb. It is becoming one of my favorites. The capri was a size 2x. I tried on about 5 pair of capri of mine which I didn't get to wear before and they will be too big by the time summer gets here. I can't wait to get some summer clothes this year. I have even been checking out bathing suits.

Reva- that is excellent and I am so glad to see a doctor supporting the low carb lifestyle, and as a means for people to meet their goals without surgery. That is why I love my doc too, she is in full support of low carb, I would just never listen to her, LOL I cant wait to blow her socks off in march, I was 318 the last visit last year I want to be in 230's by then so I am really trying, I am going to start doing some other things at the gym, I am going to venture down to the scary main floor and add some more leg machines with having had 2 knee surgeries I really want to work on my legs and muscles supporting the knee caps, knock on my wooden head, my knees have felt so good lately! I must have 30 bathing suits, but I think you will be too skinny for them by summer. Geez I guess I will be looking for those too.
You are doing awesome and red is your color, I am so glad you rewarded yourself with some nice clothes and things to make you happy in your house, cause you sure deserve it!

Amber I am positive you will knock the socs off of your Dr. too. My Dr is totally for low carb. He gets so mad at people who bash a weight loss plan for someone who does it all naturally. He even had me out in the office where all of his staff was showing my pics and telling them my story. I was so embarrassed at first but damn it made me feel good.

I only own one swim suit and it is a ugly bright pink grandma looking one. I can't wait to fit into something cute. I tried on the shorts I bought myself Yesterday and I do have quite a bit of work to do but know I will get there with determination. I have been sporting the tops I got from you and Sara and have gotten so many compliments. You ladies are the best motivator!! I am feeling much better when I work out on the elliptical and bike now. My right knee is messed up but I think that working it anyways has helped in the long run. WTG on venturing down to the scary zone. Before you know it you will be a pro down there too.

nikki you are looking hot yourself in your new pics. I love the glasses!!!!!

Reva- I was terrified of having knee surgery orthoscopic, but OMG it was the best thing, I would say if you need it do it, the recovery was quick and with working out it makes it that much better faster, you cant imagine how it feels to not have that chronic pain! That is why I do the elliptical and bike and gazelle type thing and avoid the treadmill, my doc said each pound is x 4 on your knees, so imagine the damage we have done!!!!

NikKi- did you dye your hair too? You look cute!

I didn't make it to the gym Yesterday for my tricep and bicep workout but do plan on going something today to get it done. I got side tracked redoing my bathroom. I also went to lunch with one of my SIL. This is something that rearly happens so I went. We ate at Coltens Steak House. I ordered a Mesquite Grilled Chicken Salad with ranch. It was super yummy. I felt like I snacked on too many of the peanuts they gave us in a big bucket but I didn't I suppose. I am so close now to the 70's. I can't wait!!!! I am working really hard and I want to meet my February goal so that I can reach that 100 pound mark.

Today, I am babysitting my favorite lil guy that I used to babysit daily till he started kindergarten. His mom and I are awesome friends so I am sure once she picks him up we will get into something, just not sure what yet!!!!!!

I have no clue just yet of my menu for the day.
