Short & Sweet Update
Jan 10, 2009This past month has been somewhat difficult for me due to the stress of the holidays and various medical issues (none specifically WLS related). However, I keep plugging away at my "diet", exercise, etc. and I continue to lose weight. As of today I am down 76 pounds from my highest weight! I lost 40 pounds pre-op and I've lost 36 pounds since surgery a little over 7 weeks ago. While I am happy with that figure, I know that were it not for my inability to exercise like a typical person due to my fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc. I'd be down even more! Still, 36 pounds in 7 1/ 2 weeks is equal to about 5 pounds a week. My BMI has gone from 65.2 ti 52.9. I am so psyched about getting below 300 and it's so close that I can almost touch it.
