This week saw me posting a good loss. I feel like I’m back on track (like I ever really got off of it?), but compared to last week’s 1.2 pound loss, this week’s loss is fantastic. I feel like I’m on pace to meet my December goal before Christmas, which would be a wonderful gift to myself. I am now 66 pounds away from my surgeon’s goal weight for me, but I’m hoping that by the time I see him again January 2 that I’ll be 50 pounds short of that. I am really hoping I can hit his goal weight for me by my birthday in March. That would really be something.
I am almost halfway to my own weight loss goal. I think I might be able to hit the halfway point next week. We’ll see.
I did a little cooking today to get ready for the week. I’m trying to get back into the habit after not doing it for a bit–I’ve been too damn busy working to spend time prepping meals. And thankfully, I had plenty of stuff in the freezer to eat that I’d made before. But I need to invest the time in meal prep to keep me from deciding to pick something up on the way home or going out for dinner. We have actually saved quite a bit of money not dining out nearly as much as we did prior to both of us having surgery, which has been nice. So I cooked a couple of things for both of us to have for meals this week: chili and barbecue chicken legs.
