Stitches, Stalling, and Spring


Well, today my stitches come out! I had a minor but necessary surgery a couple of weeks ago, and today is the day I can put it all behind me - and stop thinking about it.

For those interested in my weightloss journey, I've stalled a little bit, hitting a plateau as I certainly expected I would. The body needs time to recalibrate, and readjust to a much smaller amount of weight on the frame. So, I assume I'll be back to losing in the next week or so. To date, I'm down exactly 40 pounds.

And I don't know about you, but for anyone living in the now arctic Northeast, I'm so ready for spring I can't see straight! The temperature today, -1. That's not even a realistic number. -1, puh! Scott and I are headed back to DC in March and I really hope that we see a warming trend between now and then, or I'm going to have to go invest in a snow suit.

xoxo,
Artie

  2. Artie, am glad to hear you are now fully recovered from your surgery. Secondly, CONGRATS on your loss of weight and don't be discouraged reaching a plateau as it is normal. Also might recommend in event you are weighing yourself every day ...... STOP and do it only once a week and if exercising remember an increase in muscle mass/bulk can also add a few extra pounds to your weight. Last but not least; I like yourself feel that Spring cannot come fast enough as I am soooo tired of the winter. ☺ -Brenda-
