Going Very Well!

280 lbs, my weight just prior to surgery.

I had almost no problems advancing myself through the six stages of foods and have hardly had any problems with foods so far.  It still amazes me that I can feel very hungry, eat a few bites and suddenly feel over full.  The past few days I've been packing small lunchables for work and I can't finish them in one sitting.  It's crazy to think that I can't eat as much as a small school child, but I guess that's what it takes to loose the weight.

Walking at work has been a great way to keep myself motivated and moving.  Half an hour on my lunch break is just enough time to walk around the sidewalks here and "feel the burn".  I try to take lunch early so that it's not too hot outside yet when I go out to walk.  I figured that since I'm not really eating a lunch (a few bites at my desk hardly counts) and I know that I am at work five days a week, this is a perfect way to get the activity time in.
