Well its Friday and after much trepidation I stepped on the scale-then I went to the loo and came back and did it again-It worked 105.6kg the 1st time and 105.3kg the second !! Yeh! I just can't believe it- 1.1 kg loss.Woohoo! So that's 12.7 kg down-which is close to 28 pounds down since I started preop optifast,-it is about 7.2kg from surgery date 5 1/2 weeks ago.Is it really only that long?? There seems to be so much thats happened since then.
My hubby and Emma ,my daughter are still over in Canada-have been down to Niagara and are currently in Toronto doing some shopping-wanted to know what I wanted as a gift-for once I can't think of anything-I use to be so materialistic-what is happening to me? Could it be that I am more content and don't need stuff to keep me as fulfilled?(don't let my husband read that!) Or could it be that I want an excuse after I have lost more weight to blow the budget then?, I think it's a little of both...
I finally went back to the gym today-after procrastinating all week. It was great,I felt good,nothing pulled or felt different, Having had 6 weeks off I am a little weaker-had to go down on my arm weights quite a bit,my arms are flabbing in the wind,5 months till summer- got to use that as motivation.
I did about 40 minutes of cardio between the bike and the treadmill and although I was tired-It did feel easier being a bit lighter. I used to have a personal trainer there- I did see her today but she didnt even say "Oh My Gosh How much thinner are you???" In fact ever since I gave her up,she's been a little cold towards me-pretty professional eh?
It's truly winter here,blustery and cold ,raining lots-Ugh-I can certainly see why SAD(Seasonal Affective Disorder)is such a big thing . I'm waiting for a break in the rain to take Oscar (our dog) for a walk-he's looking very flat and unhappy.
I had bookclub at my house last night-only 5 out of 7 showed so of course I have lots of nibbles still hanging around- I am keeping them till my son and his girlfriend come home to graze and then they're out of the house-I keep opening the fridge door and looking at the cheeses etc Whoever thinks this band does all the work,is so wrong!
I have got my daughter's WiiFit out and have started weighing on it-You can never weigh on enough scales you know...I might even try the exercises at some point..
Well I think I'm just waffling now, I need to catch up on your blogs, So I hope you all have a great weekend, Bye for now!!
PS-here is my lazy depressed dog, and here is me in March 2011- probably about 3kg lighter than my heaviest weight-That is just the photo that motivates me most!
