Weekly Weigh In

Yes I know, I am a day late again...

It has been a hectic week, we are moving house, so I have been busy organizing and cleaning and packing, so much to do.

As a result I never tracked at all last week, and I wasn't great at eating proper meals either, I was grabbing food on the go and not making the best choices when I did grab food.

So wasn't surprised to see the numbers go up slightly this week. I am trying to avoid the grocery store and eat what we have in the cupboards and fridge/freezer so there is less food to move with, most of it is healthy so I just need to make the time to prepare some proper meals in between racing around.

Previous Weight: 274.4
Today's weigh in: 275.2
 +/- :  +0.8lbs   
Total loss 29.8lbs

On another note I have sold (well will have in the next hour) my treadmill, I was reluctant to get back on it after the incident where I fell off it. Our new house is in a very flat area, and there are lots of trails, so I am excited to do more walking, plus there is a swimming pool 1 mile from my house, so I plan to start doing some aqua classes again. I do still have my exercise biker which I use, and I hope to get back out on my regular bike now we are moving to a flat area.

My knee is still giving me a lot of grief and I am going to go see the orthopedist tomorrow, my Dr thinks I may have a meniscus tear and may need surgery - I am hoping that is not the case. I had my annual physical last week and all is good, my cholesterol is slightly raised, but it has been the same consistent level for the past 3 years, so he isn't concerned, also my vitamin D levels are slightly low, but not enough for him to be concerned about. I guess I need to spend more time in the sun :) He did the usual chat about my weight and would I consider weight loss surgery and I said no. My weight is going down (all be it slowly), so I don't want to consider the surgery.

Have a great week everyone

  1. Sorry I haven't commented in a while, but I've been out of it for a little bit. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things!

    You have been doing amazing, my friend. Congratulations on your loss. This little gain? Bah! You're on your way down. There are losses and there are gains. But you have what it takes to do it. You certainly don't need weight loss surgery. It's so weird because you and I are very close in weight (I'm about 267 now), but my doctor has never brought it up. In fact, in conversation we were having, he had said I shouldn't get it. I guess it depends on the doctor.

    Anyway... Best to you!! Can't wait to see you in May. (Yes, I still plan on coming. Definitely! I have the time off of work! And I'm getting my ticket in a week.) Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks for your lovely reply :)
      So looking forward to meeting you in May - its not far away :)
      I think my Dr gets referral bonuses! He is polite about it and as soon as I say no he moves on, at the end of the day I am healthy and active, I guess really it's just a number on the scale (for now!)

      Good luck getting back on track.
