In the 150's...24 lbs. to go

Oct 03, 2013

I had to travel down to Oklahoma for work earlier this week.  Let me just say that traveling and staying in a hotel at 4 months post-op has it's drawbacks AND advantages.   Drawbacks:  all the damn planning that went into what I was going to eat each day, making sure I took it with me, and planning for how to store it (my fancy hotel didn't have a fridge in the room), not having anywhere to store my dinner leftovers.  Advantages:  all the money I saved not stopping for "road food", freedom from the mental obsession of food - most of the time.  I did find the evenings were more difficult because sitting in a hotel room can get kind of lonely. 

But I was SO rewarded when I got home.  On Sunday the scale said 161.2.  I got back late yesterday and this morning the scale said 159 - YAHOOO!!!  I went shopping at Macy's for some jeans while I was out-of-town and was very surprised that size 12s fit.  A little snug, but they fit!  And then today, I wore a new shirt that I just bought less than a month ago.  In fact, this is only the second time I've worn it...and someone told me it was too big - LOL!

Only 24 lbs. to go - wow.  Most of us have lost and gained 24 lbs. or more dozens of times.  But I realize it'll be the hardest 24 lbs. I've ever lost in my life.  I'm pretty determined to get it done in the next 2 months before my honeymoon period expires but I'm thinking it'll probably take closer to 3 months just based on my average weekly loss of 2 lbs. per week.  Which is still awesome!
