12 Week Update

Just a quick post - I made it home. And, after twelve or so days in South Africa, I didn't gain weight. Even better...I lost!! I was scared there for a while. Here's the stats:

Surgery day: 250.4
Week 2: 232.1
Week 3: 228.7
Week 4: 226.1
Week 5.5: 219.7
Week 6: 218.5
Week 7: 215
Week 8: 211.8
Week 9: 208.9
Week 10: 206
Week 11: scale in South Africa!
Week 12: 201.3
2 week weight loss: 4.7 lbs
Total weight loss: 49.1 lbs

Some trip stats. I left town on a Thursday weighing 205.9. I came back a week and a half later on a Monday to 201.3. Losing 4.6 lbs on the trip was super exciting! I've got two weeks before leaving town on another trip. 50 lbs and onederland....I'M COMING FOR YOU.

Shrinking me enjoying Camps Bay near Cape Town, South Africa (it's winter there, hence the scarf ;)


  1. You can do it! I'm rooting for ya buddy! 2 more is nothing! Doin great even on vacation. Keep up the good work.

  2. Wow! Great job Jo. You look like you had a great time. Onederland is just within your reach. You can do it!!

    I'll be joining the Sleever club soon. I start my pre-op liquid diet tomorrow and I will be having surgery late September if all goes well tomorrow!

    Thanks for the pictures and take good care of yourself.


    1. Exciting, Barbara! Good luck with the liquid diet. I failed that miserably :) Late Sept will be here before you know it and by Christmas you'll be here too!
