Friday the 13th and oh what a GREAT DAY!
Mar 13, 2009Today is 3/13. It has been 18 days since my surgery and I feel great! Weight loss related, the scale read 212.5 this morning. My highest weight was 244; highest at the surgeon's office was 241. I have been using 244 as my starting point because that was the highest weight I remembered being. So, I have lost around 30 lbs since I started this process !! Woo HOO!!
I measured myself today, as well. Last time I measured was day before surgery 2/22. Here is the comparison
2/22 3/13 inches lost
Bust: 49"/ 42" band 46/40 3/2
Waist: 47" 44 3
Hips: 52" 50 2
Thighs 26" 24 2
upper arm: 16" 15 1
total inches lost: 13 inches!!!
Non weight loss related, I got a big check from my daughter's natural father. I haven't seen any type of support check from him since December and that was really small. So, I guess he filed his taxes or came up with some money some how to get out of jail (where he has been for a few weeks for lack of payment). Then went I went to the bank, I found out that my income tax came today too!!! YAY!! Couldn't have happened at a better time. With moving and everything, I can really use the extra money right now. I put a big chunk on my student loan and that was a huge weight lifted off me. Now, I can focus on moving and getting settled in the apartment without having to worry about money for a bit.
