Impatient Me

Monday, July 16, 2012

I weighed in this morning and found I'd only lost 1/2 pound. I'm rather concerned, as I know (yes, I've been down this road before) that I usually lose big in the first few weeks, then taper off. I know that I wasn't able to exercise for a few days (road trip) and I didn't record much of what I ate during the trip -- but I also know that what I ate wasn't excessive or unhealthy.

Redoubling my efforts this week. I've got a meeting with a personal trainer this afternoon (!) and I'm keeping an especially sharp eye on my salt intake -- the edema is still very bad.

    So at my last meeting with my weight loss doctor, he mentioned that the new recommendation for safe lasting weight loss is now 1/2 a pound a week. So really you are just doing it the safe healthy way - even though it can totally be frustrating!

Keep at it!
