She's back!!

Hi everyone. 

I had knee surgery almost 2 weeks ago so I have been recovering.  I can't wait to start working out!!!  I go to my post op appointment tomorrow so hopefully I will get the all clear that I can at least get in the pool!!

I started back on Belviq after being off for about 3 weeks.  If you ever hit a plateau like I did, try going off a few weeks and going back on!!!  WOW, I sat down to eat and got full fast again!  YAY!!!  So, lets get the rest of these pounds off!!  GOOO ME!!!!!

More later.........

So I haven't weighed in for a while because I have been on a plateau of sorts.  I decided to stop (TEMPORARILY) the belviq for a week and jump start back on it.  I go pick up my RX hopefully this week.  Anyway, I think  you'll like what you see.....




3 pounds lost - hey, I will take it.  Total lost:  53 pounds to date!

Help me increase my following! I want to get the word out that there is help and hope for obesety without resorting to surgical methods.

Cholestorol Resuls

So I have some bad news.  My Test results did not change at all since I started with a healthier eating lifestyle.  I had my suspicions that this would be the case because genetics play a large factor.  My Tryglicerides were 414!!  Anything over 200 is high.  But, again, this is a huge issue that runs within my famly.  Obiesity is not.  I got the genetic card I guess.  So, I am looking for alternative methods to lower vs. Medication.  Any suggestions - please email me at ellie.wenker@att.net

I do have some GREAT news.  Last week was a very busy week for me (which is why I have been silent).  I had to fly to Dallas for business.  The last time I flew was in February 2013 wich was when I was nearly 300 pounds.  I had to ask for a seatbelt extension.  Friday - NO EXTENTION was needed and I had PLENTY of room!!!  SOOOOOO excited!!!!

Post Birthday Blues

I had a GREAT birthday, but it seems I have hit another plateau.  I just have to be patient through things like this.  It will happen, it does happen, just move forward.

I am supposed to be having knee surgery soon to scope my left knee.  Once that is done, I can start exercising again.  That will totally help me get back on track..  It just stinks.

I do love my BELVIQ still.  I was taken to lunch with about 15 of my coworkers for my birthday.  Right in the middle of my lunch, I said, "my Belivq kicked in" - I WAS DONE!   In fact, they came out with CHOCOLATE cake (my fav) and sang happy birthday to me - but I did not have one bite.  I passed it around the table for everyone else!  GOOOOO ME!!! 

Love you all!!!

Happy Birthday to me......almost

My birthday is Saturday but the girls at work decided to celebrate today.  Dear Belviq, please forgive me for I have sinned - and I loved every minute of it.  Fortunately, I have not eaten the sweets here but I did have a yummy slice of lemon pie (do you see a theme here?  LOVE lemon).  Enjoyed an awesome lunch at Jenni's Noodle House in the Hieghts here in Houston with about 10 of my coworkers and an old high school friend that crashed.  My one time a year to splurge and I did it right.  Saturday I will be celebrating at the Houston Rodeo Cook off - a BIG deal here in Houston every year.   I am looking forward to Sunday when I can fast for a month to recover from  all of the calories.  FORTUNATELY with belivq, instead of eating 10000 calories, I just ate 5000 hahaha!

It's my Birthday week

So today kicks off the birthday week.  (My birthday is actually Saturday - hint hint).  It's going to be a BAD week for food.  Everyone wants to take me to lunch and / or dinner.  BUT, with #Belviq, I will have the assistance I need to help not eat so much.  I am not going to lie, I will probably not be eating the most healthy foods, but I will refrain from sweets and I will thankfully cut my portions.

Also, my 20 pound challenge is still going but unfortunately my friend lost her baby.  So, the challenge will be in memory of the baby - regardless if I make it or not.  Every pound I lose by April 1st will be for him!

UPDATE:  I will be removing the "comments" ability on my blog.  Feel free to send me a message through the contact form on the right hand side.  I chose to remove the comments section because of the spam - other people promoting other alternatives.  I am not interested when Belivq has been workking fine for me.

I hope you all have a fabulous week.  Start planning my birthday greeting LOL
