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.


  1. LOL on the NSV. You are rockin' the Electric Blue polish!!

  2. I love your watch! And just remember, even -.6 is movement in the right direction.
