My wife keeps the scale in the kitchen. I know what you're going to say. Why in the world would anyone do that?! It helps keep her on track with her diet which she is doing fabulous with. I've done my hardest to stay off of the scale. But today I couldn't help myself and I tiptoed on it and held my breath as I looked down. 330.4 lbs.... Are you kidding me? I've been stuck at this number for at least a week now. This is why we stay away from the scales. I'm not as freaked out as you might think I am. Because I have been following the advice of the wonderful people over at obesityhelp.com and have been measuring myself instead. I also have been pay attention to how my clothes fit. I know I've gone down in inches. How many you ask? Not enough that I feel comfortable with sharing just yet. I'm going to update my numbers when I post my one month pictures (on Aug. 11th). The good news is that as long as I poop first I'll be able to go on a Wii Fit (crossing my fingers that I get one for my birthday in 2 weeks).
For the biggest question of the day: How are you feeling?
Honestly? At four weeks I am feeling awesome! I feel soo much better than I thought I would. I have more energy and less pain than can be imagined. I am also having fun cooking for my family. They've been eating very similar to me which I've noticed is making a huge improvement with my son. He's turned things down that a month ago he would of wanted second helpings of. He's also excited about learning how to cook healthy. What shocked me though is he wanted to weigh himself. I put a quick halt to that mess. There is no reason why a 9 year old needs to weigh themselves. We had a nice long talk about diets vs. healthy eating and why at his age it's not something he needs to be concerned about.
Well I smell my dinner cooking. We're having broiled cod with Quinoa and left over steamed brussell sprouts (fresh from the farmers market).
