60 Down and Goal # 2 Reached - For Now...


I finally hit 60 lbs down and now am in the world of the 100's!  In the tittle I say "For Now", what do I mean by that?  Well, this gall bladder surgery is really holding me back when it comes to working out.  The doc told me 4-6 weeks before I can do any lifting - not even 3 pounders!  I miss my trainer terribly and can't wait to go back.  We have planned to begin working out together again in October - at the latest.  I think next week I will begin working on my cardio circuits.  Right now my abdomen and belly button area are really sore.  I think walking up the 57 subway steps every morning is enough for this week!

As of Monday I weighted in at 197.5, I hope that I can stay between this number and 199 if I do gain anything.  I really don't want to jump beyond 199 - what if I can't get back...

Anyhoo, I am planning on taking progress pics since I have reached my second goal.  My first goal was 50 lbs down and the second was reaching the 100's.  I have to find my camera and then get a new charger for it.  Also, my belly is still kinda puffy and swollen.  I thought that by now all the bloating from the crap they pump you with during surgery would be gone, ugh.    

That is it for now my little ones!  Bye!
