Still Going Strong

I did not go for my fill Thursday. I am still way too tight. I am definitely in the green zone. I eat a normal portion and then I am not hungry for about 5 hours, provided what I ate was solid protein. If I eat something soupy like chili or sausage potato soup them I am hungry again in about 3-4 hours but that is still good.

I am tight at every meal now. I have to eat slow and small small bites. It gets stuck and then eventually eases up. It's like my esophagus has a spasm a little. Everything gets stuck even if it is refried beans, soup, chili or scrambled eggs.

My weight loss is still doing well. I am so happy with my decision to have this surgery. My surgeon said I should lose 120 lbs over 3 years and I am up to 90 lbs now in just under 8 months. Life is good right now.

My employer has a fitness center. It's small and I really don't like it because I still really embarrassed. We have free fitness classes. Sooo...I am biting the proverbial bullet and am going to start taking Zumba classes on Tuesday. Wish me luck!!! I hope I don't scare people or myself. I am very very very nervous about it.
My work is also having a belly busters contest. It's based on the biggest loser. I have had a few say I should enter the contest but I can't. I don't feel it would be fair. I am dropping weight and inches almost daily. I would feel horrible about winning a contest like that knowing I had my "little friend" helping me.

A new year, a new outlook on life.

I can't wait to hear how you liked Zumba. They offer it at my club too but I've never taken it. I don't know if I'm that coordinated!
