Monday was a RETURN TO WORKING OUT DAY!!! WOO HOO!!!
Today’s Weight: 152.72 lb/69.42 kg
Goal weight: 155 lb/70.5 kg
So, while it’s kinda cool to see my weight in the 60’s kg range, it’s not where I want to be. My goal is 155 and because of a number of reasons (age, body type, lack of ovaries since I was 21) I need to keep some body fat. God knows I don’t want hot flashes!
I’m eating, lots of food. I’ve added on some fruit and cheese and nuts. I think it may be the swelling and edema are going down and the inflammatory response to the liposuction. For those that are curious, the fat they sucked out of me weighed 3.96 pounds or 1.8 kg, so it isn’t that 🙂
Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs, cooked in 1 tsp coconut oil with onions and ginger and 1 ounce Edam cheese (thanks Kira, for getting me hooked on its yummy goodness!)
Snack: Half a pear
Lunch: A salad with romaine, red cabbage, 1 ounce Edam cheese and half a chicken (deboned)
Snack: Half a pear
Dinner: Salmon Shashimi with wasabi and soy sauce
Snack at gym: 18 raw almonds
Water: 3.5 liters, 2 cups coffee
Exercise: 35:36 on the treadmill WALKING (can’t run until Thursday). I walked 3.30 km and burned 148 calories. I took a 30 minute break and then I did a 90 minute yoga class… Awesome! Took the subway back to the hospital and didn’t get back until 1015 pm. I felt great after working out!
I LOVE red cabbage… I could eat it like an apple. I love cutting it up and drizzling with olive oil and a pinch of salt… Yummy!!
Wow, be BELOW the weight you’d want to be at … it’s a sensation I have yet to experience in my life 🙂 .
You will one day 🙂 How are you? And when will you make the switch to WordPress 🙂 I sign up for your posts every other week, never get notice 😦
wow!!! I’m speechless..
we weigh the same!! woohoo!! well done for you, but a smack on the bottom for me lol!!
Woo HOO, Shannon… Get to it! I’ve reached my goal, it’s your turn!
I was very curious how much they removed. So interesting! So glad you have posted that part of your journey with us!
Thanks, Jamie… I’m glad I shared it too! Had to think long and hard about it, I think I made the fit decision 🙂
Looks delicious Sandi! Sounds like all is moving in a good direction for you. xo
Congrats on the great weight loss- now to keep it off! Know you will do it. Am just wondering if you are following the ‘no wheat’ principle? Did you remember there is wheat in regular soy sauce? Think it’s Tamari that is wheat free.
Thanks, Sue! I didn’t know about the wheat in soy sauce until about a month ago. I’m now using a soy sauce I got in Hong Kong that is gluten-free. I am totally staying off wheat. I’ve known the few times it’s snuck it’s way in over the last 9 months 🙂 I’m going to work REAL hard to keep it off!
