Monthly Weigh-In Results

a measuringToday was my first bariatric visit in a month and it was met with excellent results; I’ve lost 9.5 more pounds!  I now have a BMI of 26.  Even though that’s still in the overweight range, it’s on the lower end of it.  Losing another 10 pounds will place me in a normal weight and BMI range. It’s good to know that I’m nearly normal! 😉

It absolutely mentally blows me away that I’m only 10 pounds overweight. I still see myself as obese most of the time, in spite of what the scale or my clothing labels tell me.  I think there’s a small part of me that’s afraid to get too complacent with my new size, just in case it doesn’t last.  Realistically, if I stick with the program I’m on and follow my doctor’s and trainer’s orders, I should be able to maintain my weight loss.  I’m estimating that in another 4-6 weeks I’ll enter the maintenance phase of my program and about 200 calories will be added to my daily intake.

Not much else is new in my life.  I’m still going to the gym 3-4 times per week and swimming and hiking in between.  I have a strength training and core session tomorrow with my trainer.  She’s tough, so I’m a teeny bit scared, but it’ll be great to change up my floor routine. Other than that, I’ve just been doing my crafting and housewifely things.  🙂

I hope everyone is having an awesome week! 🙂

  1. Yay! Only 10lbs overweight that to me is skinny! But as a lifetime yo-yoer I am a staunch advocate of finishing off the job and attribute much of my weight gain to having never reached slim. I’ve blogged about it before.

    Keep going that victory is going to be a sweet one!

    1. I’m a yo-yoer, too and I completely agree with you. I feel like once I’m at a healthy weight I’m going to always have to work to stay that way. It’s sad, staying fat took such little effort, but such a toll on my health! Maintaining this is just going to be my new normal and hopefully, one day, it will soon feel effortless.
      Thank you for your kind words! 🙂

    1. It’s been a good 15 years (or more) since I’ve only been 10 pounds overweight! You’ll get there, too, and beyond with all of the hard work you’re doing! Thank you for the congrats! 🙂

    1. Thank you! I agree that it’s sad that we can’t get complacent. It would be such a relief to not have to think about.and weigh and measure out, my foods each day. It gets easier, but it’s a numbers game I’ll always have to play. 🙂 xx

  2. Oh good job! I wish I have the patience to stick on a diet and a program. Cheers to healthier living! 😀

      1. I’ve never heard of Pukka tea. How is it? I’m having a coffee (Vanilla caramel cream). I need to run to the grocery, but am doing everything in my power to put it off! 🙂
