Down 0.4 pound since last week. Disappointed it's not more, but thankful it's a loss and not a gain. With the bum ankle I wasn't able to do my Derby or aerobics class, and I didn't get the dogs walk in for a couple of days.
On a more important note, it had been exactly 6 months since my surgery. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. The decision for surgery was the best one I ever made. I am in such a better place than I was 6 months ago. I still have a ways to go, and I seem to be at a plateau, but I know I can get there.
Just a few stats from before and now:
Before: tight 28
Now: tight 18
Before: 7 medications
Now: 4 medications; stopped the two for high blood pressure, one for pre-diabetes and cut in half the dose for reflux
Before: what exercise ;)
Now: walk the dogs every day for 30-60 minutes, Derby Lite (roller skating) 90 minutes each week, aerobics class 60 minutes each week.
Total Loss to date:
An average of 12.3 pounds per month!!!
