Like what I'm seeing

First of all - I'd love to connect with you on Facebook. It makes communication so much easier, for me anyways. Send me a friend's request, here. ♥

I have fallen in love again with my scales. Ugly reminder, when I weighed this past Thursday during my first fill, I had a 5.6 gain. This, I assume, was my bodies way of discipling me for four weeks of an all liquid diet. Since my fill, so since Thursday, I've had a 5.8 loss. I'm back to my pre-surgery weight plus  down .2. I want officially claim this until weigh-in Wednesday and even hesitated saying anything; but I'm just so darned excited!

I've been getting my protein w/o the aid of shakes. hallelujah! Ground Turkey Breast, Lean Chicken, Egg Whites and Tuna have topped my list of proteins and I've been able to meet my protein goals, per day. I actually have a brand new love for the ground turkey breast. [note, NOT ground turkey, it's not the same]. I made a huge pot of homemade turkey chili for dinner last night, which was delish! I had about 1/2 c. of chili and 3 small pieces of a turkey dog. Thank you Jennie-O!

I've had several more people notice I've lost weight...and I love it! I feel so giddy inside. I realized I've been in the 200's for most my life. If I feel giddy now - I can't imagine the feelings when I hit onederland!

Wishing everyone a lovely week. Off to read!


  1. Yay! Glad the scales are being kind! I seem stuck at my current weight but hope to break free soon. The turkey chili sounds so yummy...something about a big bowl of chili in the Fall...sounds so nice.

  2. Hi Nikki, good luck to you! I thank you for following me and look forward to our shared journey.

  3. Hi Nikki! I saw you on Draz's blog and wanted to stop by and say hi. I was banded in February and have lost 90 lbs. Come visit me at
