No Friday Weigh-In
The scale and I do not agree today. So I'm saving weigh-in for Sunday, which is my 7 months post-op. Unofficially, I weighed exactly the same as I did last Friday. Which boggles my mind a little, since I didn't eat more than 1200 calories a day all week. Ever have one of those weeks? When you feel like you did everything right, but the scale is not impressed? And I cleaned my closet out again - two more trash bags full of clothes that are too big!
On Wednesday morning, I actually saw 202.8 on the scale. But then I ran out of the prescription diuretic that I take to combat the swelling/water retention caused by the high blood pressure medicine (which I'm hoping to get off of soon). I'm back on the diuretic, but maybe it takes times to work? That's what I've decided anyway.
I had an appointment with my primary care physician this week. They did some blood work to check my thyroid (I've been hypothyroid practically all my life), cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides, etc. All my numbers came back better than they were in December, except for my triglycerides. That one is borderline high, but not like HIGH. Hoping that continuing to lose weight, and trying to get more steps in every week will help with that. I don't think I could handle fish oil supplements.
SOOOO looking forward to this three day weekend! I'm getting my hair and toes done. I plan to look fierce. Now tell that scale to help a sister out.
