It's Weigh-In Day! WE ARE NOT ALONE!

Starting weight: 257 lbs

Current weight: 203.0 lbs

Weekly Loss: 1.5 lbs

Total Loss: 54.0 pounds!!!

BMI: 33.8

Week In Review: heel stress fracture - no exercise, Mini-Vacation-did not get to do what I wanted to do, frustration.


As I am weighing in this morning, I was stuck with the following: At this very moment, I am not the only one doing this! My LapBand Family is doing the same thing! It's Weigh In day for several of us. We are all getting up and the first thing we think is "Did I lose this week?". We go to the bathroom, strip naked, take our place on the 'throne', and push out every drop of pee possible. Then, clothed in our Birthday Suits, we approach the Scale. The Place of our Scarifed Tastebuds. The Altar of Our Success. The Instrument of Loathing and Joy. The Indicator of Our Hard Work. It is with one step, we all collectively hold our breath and step up. The result will either be a jump for joy for a loss or a sigh of relief for the not so perfect week. Some of us will dismount with disappointment or disgust. Some will run through the house naked, proclaimimg A New Low and announcing to a Startled Mate the Accumlative Loss, while doing the Chicken Dance! (Yes that is me dong that!).

We are not alone, Peeps! WE ARE NOT ALONE!!!!

"Keep calm and carry on......"
