This week’s progress was pretty okay given that:
1. I ate more carbs than usual
2. I ate more calories than usual
3. I am retaining water (thanks, Nature, you suck)
I’m good with losing just shy of a pound–I’m just glad the scale keeps trending downward. I’ve learned to accept this mantra lately: I don’t care how long it takes me to get to my weight goal so long as I get there. This process is not a race. I am 12 pounds from my surgeon’s goal, and hopeful I will hit it before I see him again in July. I’m going to go hard at it these next 6 weeks. I will keep my eating the same, but my exercise has to increase. That’s where I’ve been lacking and I know it.
