Starting weight: 281 lbs
Surgery day: 261 lbs
Today's weight: 190.6
- 1.4 lb loss
-70.4 lbs loss since surgery
-90.4 lb loss overall
I've surpassed my mini goal of 191 lbs. The reason that weight was significant is because at 5'7, I am now in the 'overweight' BMI category. A year ago, I was 'morbidly obese'. That's pretty damned exciting. Now on to the next mini goal: 181 lbs for a 100 lb total loss!
Eleven years ago, when I dropped out of college for the second time, I needed a job pretty quick. A friend of mine said his company was hiring, and the starting salary was pretty good. I figured I'd take it until a I found something better. Then I spent the next 11 years aggregating and analyzing automotive data. It's just as thrilling as it sounds. Wednesday was my last day there. I think I'm going to like being a stay-at-home mom a little more. Let's just hope the money holds out, so I can do it for a while!
This weekend is my husband's birthday. The kiddo is going to stay with the grandparents, and we're staying at a cool hotel on South Congress (a fun shopping, dining, entertainment area in Austin) and getting some grown-up time. I won't even know what to do with two whole days of no one talking to me about Legos.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
