A Fresh Start
Friday, May 29, 2009
It's been 3 weeks since my daughter was born, and while I haven't been cleared to do any strenuous exercises, I have been doing a little bit of walking now and then. I had to see my family doctor today to discuss some health issues and while I was there, I was forced to face the dreaded scale. I stepped on, reminding the nurse to deduct for my shoes (I don't think she did)...and the number that came up shocked me. I knew I hadn't gained much during the pregnancy, in fact I had lost more overall than I gain, but I still feared that number...219.2lbs. I don't know why but I had expected a much higher number to show up. I was relieved to think that I only had less than 20lbs to lose before I reached my first goal of 200lbs. Starting at square one, I know I will lose this weight once and for all, and my big goal is to be close to it by Christmas. Wish me luck!
