This week’s loss was staggering. I did not expect to lose so much this week, but I did: an average of a pound a day. Seeing the number I saw on the scale this morning, I couldn’t believe it. I haven’t lost weight like this since immediately after surgery.
I stepped on the scale this morning and stepped off again, as I do every week because I don’t believe the numbers that I see when I step on. I weigh at the same time on the same day each week to maintain consistency in measurement, even when I’m traveling (we pack the scale with us when we know we’ll be gone through a Sunday). Today’s weight marks 55.2 pounds lost from the surgery alone, so an average of about 18 pounds a month since surgery. Not too shabby!
But today’s weigh-in has me filled with mixed emotions.
