I am relatively happy with my exercise for week 5. Best week yet and I plan to keep the trajectory going in the same direction this week. I am loving my watch and that I can set reminders on it to move if I have been still for more than 30 mins.
I am VERY happy with my weight loss. I had it rough last weigh in, but I told you why and I was right. Things finally got moving and I lost 4.6 lbs last week. 63 lbs gone forever. I went over my medical history to get weights for myself over the last 5 years. I have now lost all the weight I have gained in the last 3 years plus some. I believe by December I will have erased the weight that I have gained since December 31, 2016. That will be 4 years of weight gone in less than 6 months. If I continue losing 2 lbs per week until my 1 year surgery anniversary I will weigh around 250 lbs. I can’t even remember ever weighing that little. That is exciting!
I set a hefty goal for next week. I just want to push myself, but I already told myself that I will not get upset if I don’t quite hit it.
Non Scale Accomplishments
There continues to be wonderful things happening in my life that are not related to the number on the scale. The other day, for the first time in I have no idea how long, I was able to sit on the couch and bend over and put on my tennis shoes and tie them. No more having to pull my leg up on the couch and hold my breath and bend over in crazy ways to put on shoes!
I have also been noticing how much easier I handle going from the sitting position to walking. Normally I would have to stand up for a minute to catch my bearings and wait for things to hurt less before I could walk, but now I can just get up and walk. Little to no pain. I feel so much lighter on my feet and don’t walk like I am 100 yrs old. It’s helps with my anxiety when I am out in public to be able to just get up and walk like a “normal” person.
I am also being able to wear some of my old clothes! I have lots of tops that I haven’t been able to wear in a long time so at least that will save me some money as I am moving down sizes. I think I am going to have to go underwear shopping soon though. They are getting too loose and I think my boobs are shrinking! LOL
I always say this, but I mean it. I appreciate everyone’s support. It DOES help me and it motivates me to keep pushing and posting! THANK YOU!
