I Made It Through Day 2

Standard

Day 2 is officially closed! I may or may not have done a happy dance…ok I didn’t really dance but I feel so happy to be done with that! Yesterday wasn’t as bad as day 1 for me. I do the support call with Tracy aka Tiny Tank every Tuesday afternoon (morning for me) at 12pm EST. I also usually join the Wednesday evening call at 8:30pm EST but this week, I have to work…anyway! It was SO helpful. Tracy picks topics for the week and we talk about them but this week since it was just me and her, we talked about the pouch test. She has done it before but the call REALLY helped my attitude yesterday. Encouragement is a huge thing and something you don’t realize how important it is unless you get it. Don’t get me wrong, Anthony has been WAY more supportive and encouraging these past two days than I like to admit I have been to him but sometimes you need an outside source to help chug you along even more. I would say I was pretty proud of myself yesterday. I drank a 15oz protein shake in about 10-15 minutes!!! I did the same as yesterday with the GMC Total Lean Rich Chocolate and made it like a milkshake then added cinnamon and nutmeg…the nutmeg REALLY helps hid the protein taste as well as tone down the sweetness of the chocolate. It was actually pretty good. I had two cans of soup throughout the day and again some saltines but not a ton and it really helped me make it through with a saltine or two throughout the day. I know that is “cheating” but I say, screw it. I didn’t sit here and eat steak so I think I did pretty good! I also made another shake the same way for a second time, that didn’t go down so smooth but I did finish it..eventually! Now this test is not about losing weight but I decided to use the scale the whole time just to see how my body handled it weight wise. I repeat, I am not doing this to lose weight because this is not the purpose of it. It is to get back on track. And I must say, I have gained weight but I am confident once my marathon training begins next week, it will fall back off! I am not even worried!

 

Cheers to a beautiful snowy morning with my cheesy eggs and yogurt. OMG ITS SO DELICIOUS!

Online Weight Loss Support

Standard

Ok so I have this amazing fellow blogger who is doing something awesome and it’s just kicking off. I wanted to post about it here because the more the merrier!

Tracy aka My Tiny Tank started an online weight loss surgery support group conference call (try to say that twenty times fast!) and I think everybody should know about it! I will explain it but also, please hop over to her site here to find out more and to join in!

Ok so this call is flexible to your schedule. There are currently two different times but she is open to more! Basically, every week, for one hour, you are on a conference call with different people. You don’t have to have had weight loss surgery to join because maybe you are thinking about it but want support or to ask questions..join! You could be 10 years out and want some extra support from people who understand. I think it’s a great thing she is doing and it allows people who connect on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. on a daily basis to talk and support each other beyond 140 characters or emailing!

I will be joining my first call next week on Tuesday from 12pm-1pm Eastern time so I hope you will join us too! So even if you are not sure or maybe I don’t do it justice…head over here to read more about it and feel free to contact Tracy with questions or if you want to, ask them right here!
