I'm Back! And I Weighed In...

Good morning to one and all!  It's going to take me FOREVER to catch up on everyone's blogs but I'm back and hopefully commenting today.

I did weigh in last Monday and today.  Last Monday saw 172.5...no difference from the two previous weeks.  Today saw 171.  So -1.5 from last week.  I'll definitely take it considering how I've been eating lately.

Hubby's surgery went fantastic!  Thank you all for your good thoughts.  He's not whining nearly as much as I was so that's really saying something.  The gas pain doesn't seem to bother him as much but his incisions do.  He's already hungry so that's a double edged sword.  On the one hand, it's good that he's hungry...means the swelling in his stomach has gone down.  Bad news is he's got 2 more weeks of liquids before moving on to mushies.  He's starving!

My dad is doing...OK.  The "procedure" went fine.  He had 3 blockages at his heart.  They put a stent in and did angioplasty.  They were able to clear 2 but 1 is 100% blocked and they couldn't clear it.  So that's no good.  They're trying medication to unblock it (not really sure how that works) and are looking at a bypass as a last resort.  He had a triple bypass back in 1995 and I guess once they do it once, they really hesitate to do it again.  He's doing OK right now though.

Between my hubby and my dad, moving, ATTEMPTING to unpack...I just haven't been eating and exercising the way I should.  I could list a bunch of excuses as to why I just COULDN'T get to the gym or I just COULDN'T cook healthy meals for me and the kids but it would just be BS.  The truth of it is...I made all these other things a higher priority than getting healthy.  I am only 1 lb away from my birthday goal and I have 20 days to get there.  I'm calling my surgeon's office this morning to schedule my long overdue fill as it is desperately needed and I'm back to cooking this week as well.  Breakfasts are a little dicey so I've got to plan that one out better.  Hopefully getting back to the gym this week as well.

Hope everyone had a great week in Blogland...I will be catching up this week...I promise.  And it wouldn't be Monday with our Monday DEMotivation (I just have no idea how you survived without it last week).

LOL. I love your Monday DEMotivation. It just cracks me up!!

I think it's awesome that you are taking responsibility and not making excuses. Life gets busy and sometimes eating healthy and weight loss will take the back burner but good for you for getting back on track!

I'm happy that your husband and dad are doing well.

Glad to hear your husband's surgery went well. Yay! :)

And your dad's procedures, even though he's not completely in the clear it sounds like.

I just know you'll get that last pound off, sweetie! Heck, by now you probably already have. I'm so far behind! :/
