Christmas goal

Friends! I just had an epiphany.

I am almost five months post-op. Today is the start of spring. A very long and cold and wet winter is behind me. And from today I am kicking up a gear!

Going to join a gym ASAP come Monday. Enough of this lazying around. The time has come for me to honestly make the most of this precious tool I have received.

I have lost 75 pounds (34 kg) since my highest weight. My goal is to be under a 100 kilos (under 220 pounds) by Christmas. That will be my gift to myself. I am 257 pounds (117 kg) now.

You think a loss of 37 pounds (17 kgs) is possible by Christmas? Little less than four months. Theoretically it should be. But my weightloss has creeped to a very slow loss. Perhaps my lack of exercise, but also my menu choices. I am struggling deciding what to eat and being an active participant in what i get in. I am sure i dont get in nearly enough protein.

I know I am just probably lazy to make the effort. But I do feel overwhelmed quite easily, so I try and not berate myself so often.

Any tips? What is your go to menu plan for a given day? Something tried and true? I dont take shakes at all as they tend to make my feel nauseous (I am lactose intolerant). Even if i make them with water – it still has the consistence of something milky and I struggle to get it down!

Hope to hear some good tips to get to my goal by Christmas! Anyone joining me???

  1. Most of my go to proteins are dairy, so I don’t have a ton of ideas for you, but have you ever checked out mybariatricpantry.com? I buy some protein chips and cheese puffs from them. They also have protein pasta, and a few other really great things. I LOVE them. I’m eating the white cheddar flavored protein cheese puffs as we speak. They totally hit my cheeto craving. Hope this helps at least a little… 🙂

    • Oh my goodness!! What awesome stuff have you got over there? Protein chips?? Whaaaa dafuq? Will def go check it out, thanks gor the tip 😉 maybe i can make myself a big shipment of awesome foodstuffs that will make my life easier. Over here you want protein – eat meat or eggs. I’m so over struggling.

      • Heya lady! You know what, have had a hell of a ride lately and actually totally forgot. Bur happily for me i found a protein shake that i really enjoy, and so i get in 48g of protein just by shakes plus then my food extra. So i am a bit sorted over here. How are you doing?
