Once again I'm a day late at posting my weekly weigh in. Partially because I've been busy, and partially because I pretty much have nothing to report. I managed to lose nothing this week. It amazes me that I have managed to give up bread, cereal, pasta, and rice and still can go a week without losing an ounce! How is that even possible? I did miss the gym twice last week, which probably has something to do with it. Hubby was out of town, then he was sick so I didn't get to do 2 of my regular classes. However, even though I didn't go to a class, I still ran/walked on the treadmill at home on those days. Oh well, I guess I'll stop trying to figure it out and move on.
On a happier note, I just realized that by losing 40 pounds, I've lost 50% of my excess body weight. According to the 'healthy BMI' calculator and the American Medical Association, I was 80 pounds overweight when I signed up for surgery. I didn't realize I was half way there until after I posted my 40 pound loss. I think 50% is definitely something to be proud of, so I'll focus on that! When I spoke to my doc about his goal for me, he said he'd like to see me lost 60 pounds and he'd be satisfied. Wow, that's only 20 pounds from here. I like his math better than the AMA!
So this week I will focus on only having 20 pounds to lose to be at my doctors goal. I can do this!
