Medical Update: Unexpected Good news...
Despite my having to get a lot of other things done (replacing ripped clothing, pay bills, deal with family drama, etc.), I managed to clean up the scale and get fresh batteries in the thing. Today, after my morning shower, I decided to find out how much weight I had lost after the surgery. My pants were fitting a bit looser these days so I knew I had dropped some weight, I just wanted a concrete number. So, I get the scale out and turn it on.
June 10th (Day 1 of my latest hospital stay): 493lbs
June 24th (Day 1 of my return to work): 482lbs
8/12/2013 (Today): 473.8lbs
**Weight Delta: -19.2lbs**
Career High: 506lbs
Weight Delta: 32.2lbs
In a previous post, I had stated that my weight loss goal for the rest of this year was to lose 50lbs and clock in at 443lbs by my 37th birthday on December 27th. I'm almost halfway there with 4.5 months to go!! I can DO THIS!! So, what do you think, my dear readers? Have you gotten any unexpected good news recently? Sound off in the comments below!
