Week 8

Thursday, September 01, 2016

This has been a very interesting week. Although I did lose, I was frustrated with the amount of loss. At this stage of the game, 2-3 pounds a week is normal. However, with all the exercise we got this week, I expected more. You see, we are still in the middle of renovation of the house. We drywalled our living room, laid down the subfloor in our laundry room, plus other exercise. But, as I sat here this morning afterward, it dawned on me that I have built a lot of muscle this week with the work we are doing and muscle weighs more than fat. So, with that in mind, it made me feel better about my weight loss. See the nutritionist today, maybe she will have some suggestions for me.

    Glad you continue to do well and that you are able to walk around the house un-aided. I know gaining back your mobility was a major reason for your surgery.

    I had my 2 month check up with the Nut & PA. I am able to advance to raw veggies & fruit as well as nuts. As always advised to proceed with caution.

    It is so exciting to follow your journey as we are only a day apart in this wonderful journey.

    Remember, too, that sometimes activity that makes you tired...may not be exercise in the sense of getting your heart rate up or accumulating steps. And even if your pounds off is not what you wanted this week, your body will catch up. We've just been through two bathroom of which involved taking out everything and replacing floor joists!. It took 5 weeks for what husband did here..can't imagine tackling the whole house..though as I write that,...I must remember we took a 200 yr old house and renovated it back in the 1980s. It is a HUGE project to do all that good for you!!!

    Do you track your inches lost too? If not, you should try it. When the scale doesn't respond it can be comforting to find you still shrunk somewhere. emoticon
