My gastric sleeve story: Week 45

I planned to catch up on my blog tomorrow but I felt compelled to do it tonight as I’ve done it! I’ve Finally got under that 15 stone mark! It feels like I’ve passed a really magic number, over 5 stone down, and no longer past the half way mark between 10 and 20 stone! It seems silly how I get fixated on certain numbers on the scales but I can’t help myself! I’m surprised I haven’t put on as I had a heavy nights drinking at the weekend and then ate crisps and naughty food all day on Sunday but in my defense I stuck to very little carbs and high protein the rest of the week and it must have helped me redeem myself! I haven't managed the gym at all this week and I am getting really fed up with myself about it as I was doing so well.

My husband even offered to do the morning horse feeds so I could go before work and every single day my alarm has gone off at 5.30 and its been freezing and dark and I’ve snoozed it so many times that I’m almost late for work never mind making the gym! On the plus side I have to remember that this time last year I was waking up 7 times every minute as my sleep apnoea stopped my breathing and I hadn’t had a full night’s sleep in years! Now I sleep like a baby and only ever snore if I’ve had alcohol! However all that extra sleep isn’t going to get me toned abs so I need to pull myself together and start getting up earlier and get back in a routine. I’ve promised myself that from Monday I will get myself to the gym 3 times a week before work. 

When I first started this journey, my very slim friend weighed 10 stone and I could never imagine being anywhere close to her. The other day somebody commented that my legs are skinnier than hers now so next time she came to mine she weighed herself and she had put on 2 stone and is now 12 stone! She carries it well and still looks great to me so I was over the moon to think I only had a bit to go until I’m the same weight as her. The best part of the evening (for me anyway) was when I got the measuring tape out and measured our thighs, mine are nearly an inch smaller than hers now! I was jumping for joy whilst she sulked! Sounds mean but we’ve been friends for 30 years and I doubt one of my limbs has ever been smaller than hers, it's made my year!
