I know these pictures are often off kilter and cut off, but todays is a little worse than usual. I know that bugs some of you and I am sorry. The reason is that the glass surface of the scale is reflective so I try to crop out as much reflection as I can.
Despite the slightly wonky photo, I am actually quite pleased with the numbers it is showing. Before the world blew up in a wave of Easter and personal family drama, I actually had a sit down with my doctor about my weight loss, or at the time lack there of. I had charts, I had graphs, I had food journals. What I didn’t have was answers.
I think I might have actually scared him a bit if I’m honest.
I’m not sure how often doctors are presented with records and then asked to explain and extrapolate.
I tend to return to historian mode when looking for answers. There are the fact and then there are the meaning of the facts. I had the facts and I wanted the meaning.
He got over it and was, I think amused as the surprise faded. He made some suggestions, I took notes and tried to implement them. well technically I made plans to implement them after the Easter Holiday and then my plans were torpedoed, but now I am implementing them.
And it is nice to see them paying off.
This week is all about adjusting the schedule and convincing myself that I need to get up earlier so that I can walk before the heat hits. Its time to work on avoiding that heat stroke, baby. Once I feel stable I will be incorporating more afternoon strength building and flexibility work outs (indoors, again avoiding that heat stroke)
Thus far I am happy with the way it is working.
The Stats: Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight: 222.8 lbs
This week’s Weight: 221.4 lbs
Lost this week: 1.4 lbs
Lost this far: 24.6 lbs
My goal is to lose around one pound per week. This week I managed to exceed it. If this keeps up until I end up in the healthy zone I will be a very happy camper.
