87 pounds gone forever!

So as of today I am 3 months and 10 days out. I am a little late on my 3 month update but better late then never. Yesterday I met with MF (nutritionist). She told me everything looked great. Just to try and up my protein to 80 grams (vs. 60 now) and to keep trying to get all of my water in. It is still so hard
to get 64 ounces of water in. I get so busy at work and sort of forget to drink. I know its bad but I am getting better. I usually get about 50-60 ounces and I feel like I am going to float away. I pee so much more now.

I have lost 87 pounds and by being down 87 pounds means I am at 252 so half way to the goal of 165 that I set for myself! It still seems very surreal at this point. None of my clothes fit. I need to go get fitted for new bras too. I just feel that shopping right now is so pointless. I don't want to spend a lot of money and have to buy something again in a few weeks. Good thing I work at the outlet mall and can search for sales on my break. The Gap has capris for only $12.99 right now and living in San Diego you can wear shorts and capris year round. I still haven't made it to the thrift store. I have never really been a thrift store shopper and I really don't want to start now. My Mom loves thrift store shopping but to me the stores smell and are highly unorganized. I just cant do it...ha ha see that's something I need to work on. I need to get over my thrift store fear.

I have also fallen in love with the tortilla crusted tilapia from Costco. It is so yummy and full of protein. I haven't had any issues with food lately. I still weigh all of my food and read all of my labels carefully. I don't want to get sick and vomit. I don't want to experience dumping syndrome so I am super careful and follow the rules given to me.

I feel great and my energy level has finally returned. Summer has been wonderful. I'm in the pool almost everyday and walk 30 minutes at least 4 times a week. This is on top of my super long workdays where I run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I usually clock around 15,000 - 17,000 steps a day. I'm shooting for 20,000 though. I go back and see Dr T on 08/10/10 so I will update more then and I need to remember to ask for a copy of my labs so I can keep my eye on them.
