‘Tis the season! Which means that the world turns sparkly, the weather turns chilly, and 2012 is almost over. I’m looking at this time of year as a Countdown to Christmas – focusing on my weight loss and achieving my pre-surgery weight loss requirement. Achieving that will be the best gift of all!!! Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend. This is the time of year when food and celebrations are plentiful and the last thing on most people’s minds is weight loss. I’m going to show that weight loss can happen during the holiday season. My Sunday progress updates will be called Countdown to Christmas Weigh-Ins.
Week 11 on JC was mixed. On the one hand, I didn’t workout at all, because I was in so much pain due to the torn fascia. On the other hand, I stuck to the JC program 100%, and most days didn’t even have the desire to eat, which is rare. I’d seen some good news when I peeked at the scale, so I was hopeful.
This morning I weighed in at 295.6, which is a loss of 3.4 lbs this week. Which means I have 15 pounds to go to reach the pre-surgery requirement. Back on track and feeling great.
Now that I have the prescription for Motrin from the doctor and can manage the pain, I’m not going to let the torn fascia stop me from getting workouts in. I’ll be putting in time on the recumbent bike and in the pool at the gym, as well as on shorter, slower walks with Sofi.
I have to make the most of each week so that I can shed this weight, make the surgeon’s requirement, and get the surgery. I don’t want to stop JC until I do that, but money is an issue, so the more “bang for my buck” I can get the better. If I can lose three and a half pounds on a week that I don’t exercise, I can easily shed more on a week that I do, right?
This next week I want to see just how much I can lose when I’m going full steam ahead. No matter what, I’m going to keep moving forward.
Until next Sunday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
