It’s Wednesday again, and that means it’s weigh in day at the Sisterhood. This has been one of the longest weeks of my life. It seems like a lifetime ago that I wrote my last check in post. Since then, I’ve hurt my knee, and miraculously healed my knee; rode in an ambulance, seen my son hooked up to oxygen, and laughed with joy to see he had enough air in his lungs to throw a proper tantrum; nearly inhaled a bag of M&Ms, and exhaled deeply and walked away from the bag of chocolatey goodness.
My non-scale victory this week:
That I didn’t let this last week throw me off. When we got home from the hospital I got right back into it. It was hard — all I wanted to do was lounge around and make homemade macaroni and cheese and eat chocolate and snuggle under blankets with my kids. There has been plenty of snuggling. But there’s also been working out, and healthy foods, and making the right choices in the face of temptation.
THE WEIGH IN
start (11/17): 163.0
last week (11/24): 160.0
this week (12/1): 158.0
week loss: 2 pounds
total loss: 5 pounds
This is officially the lightest I’ve been in three and a half years. I weighed 159 the day I got pregnant with Harry. I’m in uncharted territory now, and it feels pretty good!
