6th Weigh in

For the full story about my weight loss journey, please read….Okay, so it’s not a tumor.

Another week, another 2lb loss 🙂
This brings my total loss to 15lb. I’ve lost my first stone 🙂

I’m really happy this morning and still confident that this is a life style change and not a diet.
If there’s one thing I’m not happy about, it’s not being able to get in as much exercise I did the last time I tried to lose weight.
I walked the girls to school every morning and picked them up in the afternoon. On my way home from dropping them off in the morning, I’d time myself and try to get home faster and faster every day to improve on the previous time.

I keep wondering how much faster this weight would come off if I could do that again but the hernia makes me worried about walking so far and my heel is still very painful. I don’t want to make that worse because I don’t think I could stand it hurting more. I have to stop myself from crying sometimes when it gets really bad.
I’m hoping that as the weight comes off, I’ll be able to get more active. I need to speak to my doctor about the kind of exercises I can do safely that won’t put my hernia at risk.

My weight last week 28 stone, 8lb (400lb)
My weight this week is 28 stone, 6lb (398lb)

My loss this week is 2lb :o)

Total loss is 1 stone 1lb

    You are doing great! Well done!! 🙂

    Take it easy with the exercise though and speak to your doctor first. Hopefully he/sh will be able to come up with some helpful advice.

    Meanwhile, keep doing what you are doing – it's working!
