Day 136 of My VLCD Journey!
Sunday, May 15, 2016
Wow is it good to be back. This is our last week of prom and the normalcy can resume. I love my job, but I am glad I can focus on me now and work instead of focusing on work and then me.
I continued to lose weight during my 35 day work stretch. I am down 90 lbs and I am almost to my half way point. I know I have a long way to go, but I am taking one day at a time!
I did transition off of the VLCD during prom. I worked with my doctor and my nutritionist and I felt that the 600 calories was not going to be enough to sustain me for a 13 hour day for 7 days a week. I will be working 38 days before a day off. I knew what was needed of me at work and I wouldn't be able to do that. I remained on 800 calories while I transitioned, and a week ago I went back to the VLCD per my discussion with my doctor. I am taking this very seriously and I am following doctors orders. I was unable to work out at the gym this past month plus because I was exhausted. I was at work by 730 am and wasn't leaving till about 8 or 9 sometimes not till almost 10 at night. I was exhausted and I couldn't wear my body out when I knew how crazy work would be.
I am proud to say that I survived. Today all of the tuxes come back, and then I can focus on weddings and not the craziness of prom!!!! I will be able to transition into my new role as Senior Store Manager as I begin traveling to stores and training. I am ready for me to focus on me.
My goal is to lose 100 pounds by my birthday July 16. I am 10 pounds away from that. So since I have 2 months till my goal I am shooting for 130 pounds by my birthday,
Well it is time to get ready for work, but I wanted to let everyone know that I am here, I survived prom season, and I am glad to be back on Spark. I used the app, not as much but I did use it!
I hope everyone has a great day!!!!
