Goodness gracious! I can’t believe I let so many weeks go by without posting. My gallbladder surgery really took it out of me. I’ve been way more tired than usual and still am not back to working out. Just a regular day of work leaves me exhausted. Anyway…sorry for the lengthy absence of weight loss progress. My weight has been totally up and down over the last few weeks. When I weighed myself 2 weeks after gallbladder surgery, I was up 8 pounds. YIKES. I’m sure it had to do with the things I ate the first couple weeks after surgery (mostly Ritz crackers and McDonald’s Cokes) and my lack of exercise. Anyway, the weight is coming back down and as of this morning, I weighed 185.6. And while that is higher than I was when I last shared my weight, I’m still pleased with my weigh-in. I have a feeling next week will be a big loss. I’m finally back to eating healthy. And I’m hoping to start adding some slow hiking back in this week.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a comparison photo and since I’m wearing the same outfit today that I wore last February (in a different size) I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do a side-by-side.
The picture on the left is me in February. I had purchased this dress in a size 2XL and wearing it with the Stuart Weitzman boots made me feel really fierce! I LOVED this outfit and the way I felt while wearing it. I was so bummed when the dress was eventually too big to wear. Imagine my excitement when I was able to buy the same dress in a size Medium. I put it on today with the same pair of boots (which I’m now able to pull above my knees). With the boots above my knees I feel like a superhero…thus the superhero pose! I’m constantly amazed at the progress that has happened this year. I’ve worked hard, I’ve been consistent, and for the most part I’ve been pretty disciplined and it’s paying off.
