Sunday morning weightloss thoughts

I haven’t really lost any weight. STILL. I did weigh myself yesterday (237) without jeans and I’d lost a pound and a half. I put that on my tickers, because I needed some success, but it doesn’t feel like it really counts. I didn’t weigh myself today. Yet.

BUT that doesn’t mean I’m totally despairing. YET. I am noticing some changes in my body. My bones and muscles feel harder – that is, I can feel them in places I normally can’t. I especially notice on my shoulders and back. And I can reach places I couldn’t before on my back. My legs look a little slimmer to me. I can sit with my legs folded longer (and not have my feet fall asleep). My jaw line feels sharper. 

Plus I have more energy. I’m willing to do more things. I’m not always sleepy (unless I sit around a lot). I can walk further, survive water aerobics (and really look forward to it), make myself get up and do things or go places, even if there’s a lot of walking. 

Also, I feel more willing to do stuff around the house. I put away laundry this morning and didn’t mind at all. I went out and took care of chickens yesterday, and didn’t dread it. 

I think this whole thing is going to be so great! Not only will I feel better and look better, and get to wear cuter clothes (which, let’s face it, was my #1 reason for having surgery), but I may cure some of my laziness. 

Now, if I could find a way to enjoy grading essays, life would be great!

Go me!

Or even “go us!”

Today was the second water aerobics class. It was so much easier this time! I kept up the whole time. I did the pull ups and even held myself up for a while. I feel great (and tired and a little sore)!

So far, we’ve been to the gym every single day we’ve had a pass. 

I’ve walked over 20 miles (including what I walked outside of the gym).

I’ve done 120 minutes of water aerobics. 

I’ve lifted weights, done crunches, ridden the bike. 

For 7 days now, I’ve worked out as hard as I could every single day!

Go me!

Now, if only I could start losing weight again! It’s been a week at 239. I’m done with 239. I want to see 235, 230, 229! Come on scale, move already! Come on clothes, fit differently already. I’m working as hard as I can!
