This morning I went to Weight Watchers and did my monthly weigh in:
With a goal weight of 146 pounds, I weighed in at 146.2 pounds which keeps me at free lifetime status. I was up 3.4 pounds from my April weigh in. That fact taken alone might make you think I would be really upset at the gain. Actually, I was very happy and not upset at all. I had posted previously about my Awful April. While I was slightly over 146 at my weigh in, I was under my goal weight of 146 when I weighed in at home. And, the thing is, that I am down about 3 pounds from the height.
Actually, I weigh this month exactly what I weighed at my January weigh in. And, I’m OK with that. Yes, I would like to be a few pounds lighter and I was a few pounds lighter last month. But, I have had many things going on and have been preparing for surgery and I am just thankful to be able to maintain right now.
I will be having my facial plastic surgery on Monday. During my recovery period I am not going to make any effort to lose weight. I want to do everything possible to heal and need good nutrition during this period. I don’t have to weigh again until June so I think that by then I will be able to weigh and stay in maintenance range and that is all I am striving for at the moment.
I am not sure when I will post after surgery. If all goes well, I should be able to do a brief update when I can see well enough to write something. One of the procedures I am having done is a blepharoplasty, which is surgery on my eyelids. My understanding is that vision can be limited for a few days due to swelling and the ointment being used on the eyes. So, I’m not sure when I will be seeing well enough to post. But, I hope it will be sometime during the next week.
For all the mothers out there:
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
