Hi! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve written an update. This is the busiest time of year for me at work, so I don’t have much time until August. This time of year is for me what the Christmas shopping season must be to retail employees! It’s very stressful. And I’ve noticed this week more stress eating since surgery. Not good- but I’m trying to fight the urge to eat bad foods.
The weight loss is going slowly, still. But it’s going. I’m a little over 40 pounds down with about 40-45 to go, so almost halfway to my goal! Since it’s a slow process and I sometimes find myself discouraged, I have to rely on victories that have nothing to do with the scale. I’m sharing a progress picture. The left picture is from March 1, 2016, the night before my weight loss surgery. The pic on the right was last night.
The scale doesn’t show how much better or stronger I feel. But this picture shows a healthier me. Sometimes I just need a reminder that the scale only reflects a number. But that’s all it is. Just a number, and not descriptive of how much better I feel.
Thanks for reading. I’ll write more when my life slows down😀
Kindly and Warmly,
