I knew that this week wasn’t going to be a big loss. Last week was a three pound loss mostly because I ate very little due to my mouth still hurting. This week I went back to eating normal meals and regular exercise. I am actually pleased that the weight went up by less than a pound though. That means that the three pound loss wasn’t just a temporary thing.
I was quite happy with this week. While much of my schedule was completely cracked by computer issues and an onslaught of phone calls, my fitness plan stayed more or less on track. Its kind of nice to know that even when things go haywire, I can still maintain my plan.
It makes me feel like I have some sort of control over things at least.
Well control over one aspect anyway.
But as I said, my food is back to normal, or mostly normal. I still find myself being cautious when eating, but I’m sure that will fade. Tonight there will be no happy hour again, but this should be the last week we skip it. Next week it will reappear and food and drink will resume. I take the last of the antibiotics the oral surgeon gave me tonight and once the last pill is swallowed, my world can right itself again.
Or at least fall back into predictable patterns. For now, I am continuing my fitness plan and feeling really good about it.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 222.0 lbs
This week’s Weight: 222.6 lbs
Change this week: + 0.6 lbs
Weight lost this far: 23.4 lbs
So even though this wasn’t a loss this week, I am feeling pretty good. I knew I would go up a little when I went from yogurt and smoothies back to eating actual meals, but at least the weight wasn’t a lot. Although I am still drinking the Smoothies. Just not at every meal. I am currently in love with the Clementine Smoothies actually. They are sweet and citrusy but they have a kick of ginger which I really like.
They are always running some kind of deal. I think the one they have now is that you get five free Cacao Smoothies with your first Smoothie Box. Those are my babydoll’s favorite and I always get them for him. Admittedly he has started referring to them as ‘Milkshakes’.
