I weighed in for June today at 146.8 pounds, down .8 pounds since May. I have finally lost most of the fluid retention from surgery. After surgery in May I was up over 10 pounds from my May weigh in! I was really happy about this weigh in for a couple of reasons.
First, June is the 2 year anniversary of me getting back to free lifetime. I certainly am glad to be there now. I am still up several pounds from my low weight last August. My next goal is to get back to where I was then. Still, I am finally going in the right direction.
Second, I’ve been able to put together 2 really good weeks. A big part of why I haven’t made a lot of progress the past few months is that I wasn’t putting together good weeks. Earlier in the year, I had a couple of bad months (February and March) where I ended up not having a calorie deficit and basically gained almost 5 and a half pounds. Since then, I struggled to lose that weight because I wasn’t consistently doing well. I would have a great week and then a bad week. So, putting together good weeks and staying consistent was important to me. For 3 of the last 4 weeks, I have had a good week and per Fitbit, I had a calorie deficit.
