Followers, that is. Wahoo! I couldn't imagine 5 people who would listen to me babble on about weight loss efforts in "real life" much less 100 in the virtual world. Thanks to each and every one of you for tagging along on my journey and lending much needed support. Y'all rock!
Overall, it was a productive weekend. My hubby and I got the house ready for Turkey Day. This included vacuuming and shampooing the carpet, cleaning the upholstery, scrubbing down the kitchen, cleaning out the pantry and grocery shopping. I have Wednesday off in order to prepare more so it should all go off without a hitch. Makes the weekend go by too quickly though. Back at work today and not uberexcited about it.
I am now down to 201.5. That's only a half pound down from last week but I think I know what's contributing to the slow loss so I'm OK with it. Time of the month has come and is lingering so I'm sure that's not helping. What makes that even weirder is that I'm on birth control and this isn't when it was supposed to come. Will have to talk to the doc about this at my annual appointment. I've been sick ever since my walk (and a little before actually) so I know my body is holding on to whatever fluid it can get. So this week is all about hydrating and getting better. My cold has moved into my ears and now I can't hear out of one of them and my throat is killing me. I'm considering seeing a doctor but I don't think there's much he can do. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those people that just can't seem to muster the energy to eat when I'm sick. I crave comfort food so part of the challenge has been resisting the urge to "feed a cold." Isn't that how it goes? "Feed a cold. Starve a fever." Ugh. Can't wait to feel better. Seriously sick of being sick.
So as I was saying...that puts me at 1.6 lbs from Onederland. I can't wait to see that 199 on the scale but I'll be patient. It's been 3 months since surgery and I've lost almost 28 lbs. Couldn't be happier with these results. That second fill has had some effect. I'm having a harder time with certain breads and I can certainly eat less. My next appointment is December 9th which I may push back due to insurance reasons. We'll see. Hope all of you had a fantastic weekend and enjoy your holiday week here in the U.S!
