Friday Weigh-In

Starting weight: 281 lbs
Surgery day: 261 lbs
Todays weight:  223.4 lbs
.6 lb loss

-37.6 lb loss since surgery
-57.6 lb loss overall

Trying not to be bummed about a .6 lb pound loss. Not every week can be awesome. My first two weigh-ins this morning said 222.4, but I always look for 3 in a row that say the same thing (oh, OCD, you're so ridiculous). That damned third weight was 223.4, and then it wouldn't budge after that. How I gained a pound standing in front of my scale for a few seconds, I will never know.

I think the last 5 lbs I've lost have all come from my hands. None of my rings fit anymore. I now wear a size 6 on my ring finger. My wedding rings were a size 6 1/2 when I got married 12 years ago, and I had them resized to a 7 after I had my son 6 years ago. I'm ordering a cheap silver and CZ set from Amazon to wear for now, so I don't feel naked. It seems silly to get my rings resized now, since there will hopefully be more weight lost. Though I doubt my fingers could get any smaller. This is a very bizarre non-scale victory.




Look at that sad empty hand. And look how huge my watch now looks by comparison.
