I weighed in yesterday and saw the results that can happen when I have a couple of good weeks. I was down 1.8 pounds to 141.8 pounds. I don’t often lose that much in a week, so it was good to see it.
The really good thing is that I am almost back down to my new baseline after my tummy tuck/breast lift surgery. At home, I weighed 141.1 pounds yesterday morning. The morning of the day I had surgery I was at 147 pounds on my home scale. 6.18 pounds was removed during surgery, leaving a new baseline of 140.82 pounds. So, rounding to 140.8 pounds I am only .3 pounds above that. I am not yet at my low after surgery, but my first goal is simply to get back to that 140.8 pounds weighing in at home. I am almost there.
Not going out to eat twice on the weekend last week made the rest of the week easier. I did have a 6″ sandwich from Subway during the week and we ate out at Panera one day. I knew I could afford to do that as it was mid-week and I was able to stay within my daily calories since it is easy to eat low calorie there.
I want to have another good week this week, since next Saturday will be my monthly weigh in. However, when I have a week when I lose a lot like this week, I often gain a little the next week even if I eat really well. We’ll see what happens.
