I skipped WIW last week because I was on liquids for a few days…
Difference: -5 pounds
Total lost: 55.8 pounds
Was on vacation over the weekend. Didn’t indulge in too many festival goodies, but didn’t drink enough water over the weekend or yesterday on the drive home either. We’ll see where we are next week :) Update on our awesome Bumbershoot weekend coming soon.

After the pretty big loss I had last week I was expecting to just maintain this week… but a loss, I’ll take it!

Yep… I hit FIFTY pounds lost this morning.
To be fair, I had some trouble with my band over the weekend, so I was on liquids for a couple days. My intention is to maintain this weight for the coming week and then treat myself to a much overdue pedicure just in time for Bumbershoot!!

This weigh-in brought to you by not drinking too much over the weekend… moderation is a good thing!
Lost: 2.6 pounds
Total lost: 45.8
I really am looking forward to that 50 pound mark. As it is right now I’ve lost half of my excess body weight. I am half way to my goal… just 45 more pounds to go. My doctor expects me to be at my goal at the one year anniversary of my surgery… 7 months to go!
There will be no pedicure for 4.2 pounds. Hopefully that happens in a couple weeks.
There will be a massage at 180 pounds. I received a certificate from my boss for a massage and I’ll be holding on to that to use as my reward.

Not gonna lie, this disappointing loss was not unexpected. I went out with some friends Friday night and drank way too much. Not to mention yesterday I was so tired after a fitful night’s sleep that I couldn’t even be bothered to get my water in. Then there’s the issue of my sugar problem.

WOOHOO! Pretty sure this is my lowest weight in about 15 years… also I was wearing size 14 non-stretchy jeans yesterday. I am on cloud nine and motivated to the max. I haven’t felt this good in years!
I have lost about half of the excess weight… I am less than 8 pounds away from 50 pounds lost. I think I need reward ideas for 50 pounds lost?

I expected to not hold on to the eight pounds I lost in one day after a too tight fill last week. I am VERY happy with this weight (*lowest weight in at least a decade*) and super excited to possible see onederland next week.
Thirteen years ago I weighed 211 pounds the day before I gave birth to my Lil Miss T. I had gained 13 pounds with my pregnancy. By the time Miss T was born my now ex-husband and I had already separated. She was sick at birth and spent 8 days in NICU. As soon as she was released from NICU my dad picked us up in front of the hospital with most of my belongings loaded in the pick-up. I moved 650 miles away from my hometown of Salt Lake City. There wasn’t a scale at my parents’ house and honestly I don’t think I would have stepped on it if there was. Not surprisingly, the weight really started to creep up after that. A couple years later started the cycle of trying to lose weight. I always struggled to get back under 220. A couple of years ago I did pretty well and got down to 211 again before the “summer of beer” in which I put back on all the weight I had lost. I have now cracked through the 220 and 211 walls. I am feeling so good about my weight loss and I feel like I’m looking pretty good. I am actually proud of myself. I have worked hard and I have not beat myself up when I’ve made mistakes (like when I discovered how easily Cheetos go down).
I don’t ever remember there being a scale in the house when I was younger. I don’t think there was a scale in the house until I was 25 years old. Judging by where my weight was when I got pregnant and how much weight I had put on just before then (eating at restaurants and drinking a lot of alcohol) I would guess I was about 160-170 when I feel like I looked best (now, looking back at photos. I’ve never felt like I looked good in the moment). Right now, I feel good and I feel skinny. I know I have a ways to go. And I am excited to get there. But never in my adult life have I felt as good about myself as I do right now. I really wish my bedroom wasn’t such a disaster so I could take a picture in the full length mirror… maybe I’ll have to clean up in there this weekend once all the softball craziness is done.
