Not A Bad First Week Back
Thursday, November 16, 2017
When I weighed in last week for the first time in over a year, I was disappointed to see my weight at 278.5 pounds. The heaviest I have ever weighed. I let myself have a small pity party but then it was time to make the smart, small changes again that worked for me so well 5 years ago.
I forgot to weigh in yesterday so I did it this morning & was grateful to see 277.0 on my scale. I've lost 1.5 pounds in one week of being back here on SparkPeople. I am proud of that. I am grateful for that. I am determined to keep it going down. I need to feel comfortable in my own skin again and loving myself back down to a healthier weight will help me do that step by step.
I still have some things going on I need to finally talk with my PCP (primary care physician) about sooner than later, and part of that conversation will be started on Saturday, but I have to be careful right now. I need to walk a fine line between taking care of myself and making things even harder on my family right now. Either way it's not an easy decision to make - to risk waiting a little longer on some of what's going on or to bring it all up now and make things crazy-difficult for awhile longer. With my Dad being in the hospital for a week now himself and not having any answers as to why, I am more inclined to wait to tell my doc the whole story because there is no one else to drive my kids to and from school & other activities. Hubby still cannot drive and I am not going to ask that much of my Mom who is still working a full time job herself. Not going to happen. Even if I know somehow it would all work, I'm not putting that much more stress on everyone.
Okay, I want to keep this blog entry on mostly good news so I'm going to stop myself before I get into a funk. I'm feeling good for the first time in months, I want to savor it. I earned it.
Love To All You Sparkers!
