Happy Labor Day! I hope you have enjoyed your holiday with your loved ones. I visited with my grandma and uncle today. It was an enjoyable time. She made brats for dinner and we had potato salad to go along with it. For dessert, we had some ice cream. I always enjoy visiting with them. I’ll be sad when the leave to go back to Florida at the end of October. I can’t believe summer is coming to an end already.
Today marks 18 weeks post op vertical sleeve gastrectomy or VSG. Last week I lost 1.2 pounds bringing my total to 65.6 pounds. I’m happy with that. My current weight is 289.4 pounds. I’m so happy to be out of the 300’s. My pre-op weight was 355 pounds. My BMI has gone from a 62.9 to 51.3. I’m still very much obese. I’m considered Obese Class III according to the app that I’m using. That app is called My Weight. I have it loaded on my phone and every Monday I weigh myself and enter the weight. It keeps track of the history and also includes a graph as well. I like it well enough. I also make use of MapMyWalk and an app called Sweatcoin. Sweatcoin actually pays you to walk outside. I haven’t done a whole lot of walking outside yet, but I already have $19.79 in my account. Now, unfortunately, they do not pay in cash yet. They do, however, offer gift cards and audio books and things like that. I’m looking forward to them offering cash via PayPal. That is their goal. Here is my link if you’re interested in checking it out. http://sweatcoin.org/i/dorothy639069 . The app connects to my Health app that is on my phone which tracks the number of steps I take while walking outside. I happen to have an iPhone X, but I’m sure it works the same with an Android phone.
I didn’t do so well with exercise this past week so that’s one of my goals for this week. I need to step up my game! I also need to get more water in and more protein. I’ve been a bit depressed and so I haven’t been eating the greatest and I know that’s not good. Here’s to a better week!!
I’m going to end this post here as I have another one that I’m going to do. Yes, two posts in one day!! I hope to gain some viewers/popularity with my blog and my vlog too! Yes, I have a YouTube channel as well. Here’s the link for that if you wanna have a look http://www.youtube.com/c/DottieMay
Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and smiles.
