4 1/2 Month Update - making progress!



Hello everyone it's been a while since I've checked in but I am happy to report that progress is being made!!

I am currently down over 50 pounds  - it might not be the fastest weight loss but I am still very happy with the progress. It is amazing the difference that just losing 50 pounds has made on my quality of life. It is so much easier to get around, I don't have to hold my breath when I bend over to tie my shoes, I have no issue buckling the seatbelt on airplanes anymore. The little things like that make a difference. My closet has over four different sizes in it so I was able to get rid of the top two sizes and am working towards getting rid of the third size so like I said, it's progress! My weight loss goes in spurts. I'll lose very rapidly for about a week and then it stalls for two weeks or three weeks so it's really hard to predict. I am experiencing increased hair loss so I am trying to do a better job of making sure I'm getting enough protein each day and taking my vitamins. Hopefully this will chill out and I won't lose much more. I have discovered a great product called X fusion which is colored hair fibers that you can sprinkle on and it really covers up any thinning areas - love the product! I have chosen to not openly share my surgery but I do openly share the high protein drinks and foods that I discover. Maybe if I am able to lose enough to be a true "success", I will be more comfortable sharing my full journey. At 238 lbs I still have a long way to go, but like the little engine that could, I think I can, I think I can....

It sounds like things are going so well for you! Congrats on your losses so far (well, not the hair...). I love it: "only" 50 pounds! What we wouldn't have done to lose bthat last year! 

Thanks for the hair stuff tip - I've been tossing around the idea of picking up some of that. Maybe this is the inspiration I needed.

50 lbs is awesome ! One of the main goals of getting the weight off is to have some resemblance of a normal life . Looks like you are doing that very nicely. Just to be able to breathe when bending over, I can hardly wait !

CONGRATS on the 50lbs @Toto65!!  And please keep sharing your journey.  Each of us has a unique experience but it intersects on many similar issues so we can get support and give support just by writing.  I still feel awkward blogging but sharing my process is something that I can get support from and (hopefully) help others.
