I had some similar thoughts today. My daughter is a vegetarian and she said the only meat she misses is a good steak, but at this point even if she could set aside the reasons she became a vegetarian, she probably would get sick from a good steak if she tried to go back. I told her I missed being able to tear into a thick juicy bacon cheeseburger or have a grilled hot dog with the works. But not to feel sorry for me because setting those foods aside (in this case it's not good willpower,it's also physically impossible for me to eat them) is such a small small thing in comparison to what I've gained in this new life. I can't go back, this life is much more satisfying than any food I could ever find.

Learning from someone else's mistakes...

I have several people I know who have had WLS of one kind or another. Only one has managed to not gain all her weight back, and she is up front that she has gained about 40 pounds back of the 150 she lost. I try to learn from their mistakes - as well as my own mistakes, of which I make many! I don't EVER want to be anywhere near where I was. It is my FIRM intention to never be over 200 again (um, once I get back down under it again!)!!!!!

It scares me too, Mary. I know that, for me, it is so amazingly easy for me to slide. Once I start eating badly it spirals out of control. If I'm lucky it is only for a day or a meal. If not - like when I was on vacation - it is a ten pound in a week gain. I was miserable during my vacation because of it. I was eating badly which stressed me out, which in turn made me eat more. I saw myself doing all the things I used to do. Granted, I wasn't eating entire boxes of cookies in one sitting, but I was astounded at how much I was eating before feeling full. I was also astounded at how easily I threw away the just about four solid months of good work I had done to lose the weight I had gained. I got down to 188. I am 200 today. How sad (and scary) is that? Obviously, I still have major issues with myself and with food. Only good news is I know it and I will continue to work at it every day that I possibly can...

OMG y'all. I am *this close* to committing myself to train for a FULL MARATHON by fall.

I'm talking to a guy in my running club and mentioned that I wanted to do one but didn't know how my itb would hold up to training in the cold over the winter. He said because I was already up to 10 miles he had no doubt that I could be ready for a full by Sept 20th. I have a half the 21st so yeah, the 20th won't happen but I am looking at my options for October/Novemberish.





Lol, I just tried to submit this post and it told me I was 2 images over the allowed limit!

It's a GOOD day! I *just* got word that I won the monthly prize for participation in a health challenge through work. Not just that, but it was a TEAM prize so my team (husband) won one too. He's done a few 5ks with me, but maybe, just MAYBE I can *finally* get him drinking the running Kool-Aid...

The scale is rewarding me for my hard work. Fingers crossed it still looks good tomorrow!!!

I had planned a 10 miler yesterday. I finished it in 2:09. It was SUPER hilly, OMG. Notice I said planned.

The girl organizing it was doing her first 10 miler. She is persistent, but slower. I and another girl finished first and noticed that 2 of the 5 of us had left already. We were doing a loop of 6 miles and another loop of 4 so they left after 6 miles. That meant the last girl was out on her own on her longest run to date. I *knew* she'd keep plodding and finish, but this meant she was alone.

Luckily she subscribes to an elite activity tracker that posts live updates to her FB so I logged in and essentially stalked her to find out where she was in her route and in which direction she was going.

Once I figured that out I headed out towards her. She was at about 7 1/2 miles so by the time I caught up to her she was at 8. Her running pace is my walking pace give or take so I didn't run the extra two miles but kinda ran/walk/jogged them. We talked about a lot of things while we were finishing out and she said that at one point she was almost in tears. I'm glad I stayed and went back to finish with her and am upset that everyone else left. Our running club "motto" has always been "No Runner Left Behind" and well... 3 of them did just that today. Granted they only ran the 6 mile loop so I didn't expect them to hang around for another hour for everyone to finish the other 4 - BUT the thing is they were ALL going to do the 10 but changed their mind after 6. Not a problem again, as this was an exceptionally TOUGH route of nothing but hills - but I felt for that poor girl, ya know. I think she had some near/with her for the first 6 miles, but then she did 6-8 alone, which is tough. And then I finished out the last 2 with her.

And OMG my knee is aching today. My hip flexors are sore. I feel good. I got to eat some extra calories yesterday to make up my 1500 calorie deficit (I burned over 1200 during the 2 1/2 hours total I ran.

So I ate a ton of watermelon. Well maybe not a ton, but a lot. And some Chex Mix. It was disappointing actually but I was craving the sodium. It didn't have a lot of flavor even though it was the bold. Right now I'm working remotely and hoping I don't have to go in physically. We had a downtime to upgrade some software that has now gone almost 5 hours past it's intended completion time.

Wow. What a great representation of doing the right thing! Also, no pain, no gain...but in this case, kinda, for her even more than you. On behalf of all slow-poke runners, thank you for what you did! I know you're in some pain today, but look what you did for her - and I'm sure all that activity will help your numbers for weigh-in and beyond. It truly stinks that more people in your group didn't have your resolve and mentality, but, as in life overall, in the end it really is only about you and how you feel about what you do. Cheerleaders abound, but the people that will really DO IT are few. And, when it comes to yourself, YOU are the only one you can count on 100% of the time to do what you've set out to do. You might not always meet every goal, but you can sure as heck come close. And, by helping that other runner, you helped her do something amazing. It was a win-win, and that's awesome.
PS: And...Chex Mix, while not the best food in the world, is sure not candy or ice cream or a hundred other things far worse for you. YOU ROCK!!!!

So glad to see everyone's progress. Mine is so freaking slow. My thyroid meds are so messed up and I have not been losing at all. I go Thursday to my Doc to discuss trying something new. Started on Armour about a 1 1/2 year ago but have figured out that is the reason my heart goes to A-Fib so may have to go back to Synthroid but that never helped before. I just can't seem to get it right after surgery.

Sorry to hear about the thyroid troubles, but glad to hear that even if it is slow, you are still moving in the right direction. I imagine it is difficult to get dosages right when your body is transitioning so much because of surgery.

I have been smacking the snooze button upside the head every morning and haven't run since my 12 miles on Saturday. I did find a good 4.2 mile route in San Antonio for this weekend, and it's about half a mile from my hotel so that's at least a 5 mile. I can add a few more loops in if I need to get more miles in. "Vacation" running. We're going down to watch my son perform at a *big* DCI show at the AlamoDome so it should be really really cool. I'm a little nervous about running in SA by myself, but it looks like a public route - going by the Alamo, the Tower of Americas, etc - and my hubby's not a runner so it is what it is. I'll be buying some mace to carry with me.

I'm going to look up Juneau running routes too. I'm excited for all that! My Alaska trip is in less than 2 weeks!!! So excited, can't wait!!!

Marathon training - still wrapping my head around that one. I'm exploring marathon nutrition now. This is huge. I want to do this.

Now how did I miss you are going to Alaska! That will be awesome!!

I have jogged in some different places - near my brother's in PA and on the beach in NC... No problems. Actually, some of my more scary runs were right by my house in the very early morning - and one a bit too late at night (about 9:30PM). I think the key is to know your route and always stay alert. I'm sure you know that!!

I'm looking at a 5K in October. Yes, I could do it now - if it wasn't July in Florida! It is terrible here right now. I will do the October run, however.

Right there with you! I've been running at 5am when I do my long runs and even finishing at 7-730am it's rough!

I, however, am not that smart. I am running a half in August, a half in September, a 10 mile race in October and a *gasp* FULL (fingers crossed) in November. I'm so afraid that I won't be able to run in the winter that I getting it all in NOW! There will be various 5k's along the way, and probably a 10k or two (especially local ones because maybe I'll place again!).

Which 5k are you doing? Which part of FL are you in? I have a runner friend in Pensacola, who is also post op.

This one is a Chikfila-sponsored one in Port Charlotte, which is in SWFL - far from your friend, I'm afraid...

The heat here is why I got a treadmill. No excuses!

I love running when it is cold here - thing is, it rarely goes below 40 around here...

We could get good use out of it together - you in the winter and me in the summer! Actually, it is great for a lot of reasons: my kids can use it (with my supervision), my husband will use it, I can use it when it is raining, etc... It was a good investment. It gets used at least 4 - 6 times a week, sometimes more like ten times a week.

What'd you get and if you don't mind me asking - how much was it? You are happy with I assume?

Enjoy the trip to Alaska! I did a 2 week cruisetour at the beginning of June and it was awesome.

I would suggest looking into the access road from the main highway to Mendenhall glacier as a potential running site in Juneau. It was a pretty decent stretch with sidewalks and I saw a lot of people walking it when we went out to the glacier. Then you can explore the glacier area which has a couple of trails. I walked out to Nugget Falls and it was beautiful--a waterfall with the glacier in the background.

Thanks for the good vibes on the filter removal, ladies! I am amazed at how quickly I put it all together...then again, I can be tenacious as you know what when I put my mind to something.

Heather, the brand of treadmill is a Sole. I will have to double-check on the model number. It had to be able to hold a bigger person (my husband is around 300lbs), so we got a bigger, more sturdy model with a bigger motor. It is just as big, if not a little bigger, than the ones at my gym. I remember when we bought it I researched it and read a lot of reviews and it also said it was good for runners (opposed to people who only would be walking) because of the motor, etc... It wasn't cheap. The treadmill, the mat for under it, and the extended warranty were just a hair under 2K. However, I will say it is a really nice treadmill - quiet and sturdy. As long as we keep using it like we do I don't regret the cost.

More shopping fun, I had several it's your birthday store coupons, from Penny's, Dress Barn, and Kohl 's. I decided to see how well I could use them, so I went off with the coupons and $5.00. So I got 3 New v neck tshirts, a black pleather biker jacket, a gorgeous print scarf and 2 pairs of "rayon from bamboo" socks and I spent $4.02 out of pocket.

So I went boating with my son, my nephew and his girlfriend today, me and 3 people under 25 It was fun, and as last summer, it sure is more fun with over 120 pounds less of me. My son is turning 19 pretty soon, and I am so enjoying him as someone fun to hang out with. Life is good.

My San Antonio route was 6.4 miles and it was so much fun. I got there and tested out my running app that I made the route in and it wasn't working like it should so I was freaking out. I spent a lot of Friday night obsessing over why it wasn't working and finally just used my cell and nook to recreate (and improve) it in another app. Worked perfectly! I even re routed it to run by a Walgreens for some shopping and a Starbucks for my customary post run skinny decaf. Both those were in the last 1/4 mile before the hotel.

It didn't feel like 6.4 miles at all! !! I took a ton of pics.

I don't know why these are posting wonky..

Alamo selfie
King Williams district road
Riverwalk
Funny building (Google said it was a hot dog stand)
Old church
Post run Starbucks selfie - I even brought the hubby a blueberry muffin!


The croissants were tempting but they had the calories listed too and I was thinking "220 calories is easily 1/3 of what I just burned so that croissant costs me 2 miles...". Interesting. Of course i didn't get it.

I know I don't have to remind you (yet I will) of how great it was of you to plan and execute a run while on vacation. Five years ago exercising wasn't ever a part of my planning on any day, but especially on vacation. Now, I actually DO look at the fitness center pics for hotels I'm considering and I actually use them and/or exercise while I'm on vacation. I'd feel awful on so many levels if I didn't. Thanks for the great pics!!

Thanks for the great pics!!
It was hands down the best part of the trip (except seeing my Dyllie perform the Alamodome).

I kept thinking how beautiful everything was without hundreds of people roaming around, I had everything to myself. All the pics you see are "empty" of crowds. It was awesome.

I can't afford any bloat (so no starchy foods, not too much salt, etc) for the next couple of weeks, because I will be wearing this dress on the evening of Aug 2nd for a concert!

In other news, I actually wore out my George Foreman grill haha
it seems the non stick coating is worn from cleaning and the plastic grease catcher thing, even though I clean it every time, can't get clean anymore, it has some sort of residue or maybe it's just slight discoloration. Anyway, time for a new one!

Wow, killer dress! I've worn out a few Forman grills, especially when I'm cooking lots of bacon.
