The Pursuit of Health Continues!

There's good news and bad news:

The good news is that I broke through the plateau barrier and saw 267.6 pounds on the scale!  That's a loss of 40.2 pounds.

The bad news is, it was temporary or a hallucination, because the last couple of days I've been up a pound again!

I've tried substituting a small orange for my glass of orange juice; I've got salad coming out my ears; still can't seem to drop another pound.

Wish I had the magic formula! Just hang in there; soon, your body will figure it out.

Hang in there! =)

Oh dear Eva - did they not tell you not to do the scales thing more than once a week? One pound could just be that you held on to a bit more water than the day before. It's heading the right way over all. Grab onto the good!!! YAM xx

ah lots of sugar in oranges.
when i was losing weight i would hit those you know you will be well beyond it...just stay true....

Sometimes it's hard to wait out plateaus, isn't it? I try to tune out to the weight and pay attention to how my clothes are fitting.

That's more reliable!

Add fiber and exercise, like walking. Metamucil was recommended to me. I found another brand on like I like better. But, more fiber did it for me.

Eva Gallant said...

Rosaria: I can only hope!

Melissa: I'm hanging!

Yamini: I know I should only look at the scale once a week, but I'm so scared I'll gain weight back!

Brian: Thanks for the encouragement.

Sue: Good advice....some are getting baggy!

Joanne: I'll try that!

Are you still considering the surgery or are you going all the way on your own?

40.2 pounds!!
Ignore that odd pound, it will go away if you don't pay it any attention. like a stray cat.

My dentist has a sign on his wall. Teeth; ignore them and they'll go away.

Stephen: I had my last appointment at the Bariatric Surgery Center on May 7th. At that time I told the dietician that I was reluctant to have the surgery and would like to try to lose the weight on my own. She said that the center would support me in that, although I should be aware that losing the weight on my own would be a much longer process. We set an appointment for 3 months from that date, when we would see how I'm doing. In the meantime, I am welcome to call the dietitian at the center should I have any questions, of if I go through a two-week stretch without losing any weight, and they will offer suggestions. She assured me that no one would pressure me to have the surgery, that it is entirely up to me. So, I'm hoping to pursue this on my far, so good.

River: I like the idea of ignoring that pound and it might go away!
