Today 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! 🙂
