    Default Look at it this way.....

    “Look at it this way” is something my late husband said often. Today I remembered his advice. I was a bit frustrated with lack of loss this week in spite of following my surgeon’s plan and exercising every day. So when I looked at it from another angle I’ve lost 12.5 pounds in the month since surgery AND I’m off blood pressure meds and currently at 107/79. What’s not to like about that?
    Height: 5'3
    HW: 234.0 BMI 41.5
    2 week pre-op diet loss: 7
    SW: 190.5
    CW: 163.5
    GW: 125 BMI 22

    There will be the occasional week where you won't see the scale move any if at all, not often, but it does happen. I've had that happen twice, once around 3 weeks out and once not long ago. One thing I did notice this past time was that I had been adding a few nuts into my diet when I hadn't been before. I stopped 'snacking' which is one of my biggest, slippery slopes and my body went back into losing mode. I do much better planning my 3 meals and then being done for day as a general rule. It's not always easy to do, but that is what has been working for me.

    Hang in there, you're doing fine.

    That’s fantastic and love your positive attitude! Getting off the meds is what I’m looking forward to the most, so I consider that a BIG win - keep up the great work!

    Congrats!

    It’s great that you can see the positives.

    After all...when was the last time you lost 12.5 lbs AND had a lowered BP all in one month?!?

    Stalls happen. Your body is freaking out right now. This too shall pass ;-)

    Great positive attitude! I would recommend only weighing yourself once a week, because early on you're going to see some stalls. And we want to keep that positivity going! You'll do great.

    YES!!!! Also, look at it this way...when you lack of loss means nothing. Often even when you are not losing your body is changing. So you may be losing inches and shrinking just the same. Keep that positive attitude. It will serve you well along your journey!!
