Weigh In

It's been a while since I did a weigh in. A LONG while. Like 2 months. Shame on me. But, can I use the excuse, holidays, surgery, life? Probably not. So let's start with numbers and then I'll tell you what's been going on. 

Last weigh in online: 163

This week's weight: 159.6 (I think)
This week's weight loss: -3.4 lbs
Total weight loss: 156.4 lbs

Now, for some reference as to why my number maybe lower last week and may go up this week. I had surgery 5 weeks ago Friday. Thus I had an unfill 5 weeks ago Thursday. So, Friday of this week I finally had my fill done. I'm probably at 7 cc's total right now. So, I did full liquids Friday and softs on Saturday and Sunday. So my numbers maybe off a bit next time because I've had a few carbs this weekend due to an intestinal issue. 

Ok so weight loss. I'm not going to lie. I'm thrilled. But I still have a fat girl brain. I don't think that's ever going to go away. I'm currently in a size 12 and when I was in a 26/28 I always said if I could just get into a 12 I'd be happy. Hmmmm. Now that I'm here I'd like to be lower. Something's wrong with me :-/. I probably could do 10's in some things but 12's right now. 

Realizing I'm almost half my body weight is a bit ridiculous too. I had an awful dream where I was wearing a skirt with elastic stretched out as far as it could be. I remember that and don't hope to go there again. 

Oh, I do want to say to my blogging buddies. Why did NO ONE warn me that you will have bowel issues after the fact?!  All news to me. So, anyone reading this and learning, yes it is an issue but you will make it through. Yes, I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!!

I know I haven't blogged in forever. My goal weight for myself was 158. I can't seem to get there. So, I'm trying to be content at 165. I've been as low as 161.2 but I'm staying right around that 165 mark. And lately, I've been so addicted to the scale my husband had to hide it (yet again) from me. 

The clinic's goal was 145. That would put me at "normal" BMI. Ugh. Unless I sweat my bootie off (which I should be, I know) I just don't see that happening. 

So, can I be content? That's where my brain is now. Trying to not get too rillied up when I see that number jump a little because I know I bring it down. 

I had to have a couple of corrections to my hysterectomy 3 weeks ago (minor surgery). So I currently am without fluid in my band. I need to squeeze in the time to go back in now that I'm starting to feel better (see I say that and this morning - not so much). I didn't want my NP pushing on my tummy after the surgery. Plus I kinda want to get back to presurgery weight before going. 

Ok, so onto my newest NSV. Drumroll please...........I unsubscribed to Lane Bryant! I do not need them any longer :)
