I am healing well from cyst surgery. I still have tenderness and move a bit slow, but I am off pain meds and getting back to my new normal.
My main goal was to get back to exercise. 3 days this week I was able to walk on the treadmill for a mile at 2.5 and an incline of 3 for 1/2 of it. I should be back to 2 miles soon. I also did one workout on the total gym with leg presses and arm pulls. Nothing too hard on my core.
I am trying to push my food intake to 1000 calories. I get 800 and then have to push the next 200. An extra snack in the evening is really hard to get down. I'm trying.
I haven't lost anything according to the scale this week. So, as per normal, I had Sarge take my measurements.
Here are my preop stats. Only thing wrong was I was at 315 lbs not the 313 it states. Next to it are my measurements from today.
I'm trying to stay positive by taking a daily selfie so I can see my changes. I seem to have body image issues when I look in the mirror. I still see myself as bigger. Yesterday I was shopping with Boo and she had to tell me to grab a smaller size because I reached for a 3x like was the norm before. This is a good problem to have.
4 lbs to 1/2 of my excess weight gone. Not lost because I don't want to refind it. I am changing for life because I want to live.
