    I was more active this week and exercised 5 days (yay, me). I have three weeks until hernia surgery and realized I will not be able to bend or lift for quite some time after surgery and have been cleaning and organizing everything. I spent last week working on the garden and cleaning out the garage. Tackling closets this week. My goal is to continue to work in the exercise next week.

    Have a good week everyone!

    Oops, had my weight wrong. It was 163 LW to 161 this week. Not a big deal, but I feel the need to correct! :)

    A busy and stressful week and still managed to see movement. My husband just went out of town for a few weeks, so it will be interesting to see how the routine is when I'm holding down the fort alone.

    I am well past my goal weight and am almost "normal" according to the BMI. I must admit it feels weird, and sometimes I still see a fat version of myself when I look in the mirror or down at my legs.

    This week I have gotten a lot of "don't lose any more" or "you've lost too much" comments which are really getting annoying. For goodness sake I'm still 160lbs, I'm not sickly. I'm over these comments.

    Good going.

    If a stranger or your doctor says that, pay attention. Everyone else, coworkers, friends, family, are still seeing you with "fat" eyes.

    SW/HW 298
    Pre-op W 275

    Wow - that is an awesome drop!!!

    Yay on the exercise!!!! Nice drop

    Normal BMI is super!!!

    Yay! It gets better from here.

    Well, I've been very, very bouncy. Big drop from being sick, then, I was put back on antibiotics which made me gain water weight. I got down to 147, then, popped back up to 153 and now, I'm done with the antibiotics and starting to drop the water weight. Not sure where I will end up. Hoping for the best, but we will see where I am next week

    LW - 147
    TW - 150

    Looking forward to seeing the scale go down more.

    Last week. 141
    This week. 138!!

    This makes exactly 100 down from my pre-op two week diet which I started on 5-26-16. Surgery was 6-10-16. I'm now about 6 pounds from entering "normal" BMI-land! I've gotten some of the "don't lose much more" comments but I'm not letting them bug me. When strangers say it, as Southern Lady said, then I'll worry. Hubby says no way do I look sickly, he says "you look great", and I trust him. It's all very surreal and I keep having the Cinderella feeling, and I DON'T want midnight to ever come!

    Today 178
    Funny thing, this DS. Still learning 4+ years out. When I'm super strict, i.e., less than 50 carbs per day, the damn scale won't budge. When I indulge- my daughter's bday this week, and she left the cake here- I maintain or drop a pound or 2. I'm happy. I'll keep on keeping on. And if I live at 178, so be it. People say I look "great", and I didn't have this surgery to have to "diet" the rest of my life.
    Have a great week, everyone!
