6 Days Down

It is Sunday uh...well early afternoon, and we have now completed 6 of the fourteen days. Weekend days are easier with no work to contend with and the ability to sleep whenever you want. We did take a walk yesterday to increase our physical activity which was good, and I managed to space out y consumption of the six side items so that I could have 2 frozen banana, chocolate protein powder shakes. They are really good and in that I was not having anything that resembled milk shakes going into this they see like an indulgent treat.

Our results this morning are juxtaposed from previous days. This morning it is I who is down just 1/2 pound at 287. So I've lost 14 pounds overall. t is down 1 pound and so has lost 10 pounds overall. And swan, drum roll, is the big loser of yesterday down 3 pounds. swan has now lost 9 and 1/2 pounds overall. So we lost 4 and 1/2 pounds overall between us and have lost 33 and 1/2 pounds overall as a family.

Damn! a third of a hundred pounds own between us in 6 days. Who would have thought?!

Tonight at midnight we will reach the halfway point in this pre-surgical two week liquid protein diet. I guess that means we have reached the point of no return.

All the best,


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.

The amount of weight you have lost is truly amazing isn't it? Wouldn't it be wonderful if it was easy to do? I guess the fact that its not is the whole point of the surgery and this pre-surgical effort, isn't it?

I think that its sort of amazing too, that you three are functioning at all with the limited calories you've had this past week. Good luck in the week to come.

It does seem to me btw, that you are all three doing what it says in Tom's tagline, going confidently in the direction of your dreams. That has to feel good.

Your livers must be teeny, tiny! Good work! Hey, Swan - have you picked out the bikini yet? LOL No, seriously, just thought it was time for a little levity, but you now know why I don't do stand up. The halfway mark is certainly a thing to celebrate - I'm sure this half will be easier than the first half! Great work.
