 As many of you know, I weighed 382 lbs in November.  The scale today said 315 lbs.  I am excited about this.  I am also grateful for the support I have received from many unexpected places.  It got me thinking about the things that inspireand/or motivate me.

Q-Man (who is almost 4 years old now!) and Baby-Z  (5 months).  I want to be able to comfortably get down on the floor and play with them or to be able to run and walk outdoors with them.  I am their "Auntie" and I want to be around to see them grow up.  Their parents are wonderful to me in so many ways, and I am so so so grateful for them.

My 99 year old grandmother.  Who is in nearly perfect health other than the part where she won't wear her hearing aids. 

People who stay committed to their health and fitness without being judgmental.  [profile] american_knight  has been a wonderful example of this.  His words and choices, while they don't directly translate to what I hope to accomplish, have helped me realize that goals can be big and goals can be small but all goals are worth pursuing.  There are other people who are very much about fitness (Ralph/Tom) and have been more than willing to talk to me about my health and fitness without making me feel like crap.

Looking in the mirror motivates me.  I still am not happy with the overall picture of me, but I am getting more comfortable with it.  I try to find something I like about the reflection, and it is getting a bit easier. 

I am getting there.  I have a long way to go.   But I am celebrating every day - each day is a gift.

Need to go to bed.  Or finish packing.  I can't decide.    See you after Uprising.

The scale said 331.7lbs this morning. 
Even if you round it up to 332, that means I BROKE THE 50 POUND BARRIER!!!

I am so so so excited!!!

And that is 7 pounds since last week.  I am wondering if I should be concerned.

I weighed in at 339 pounds.   I would love to be under 300 lbs. by April.  There it is - I have stated my goal.

And I actually feel like I am eating more while I follow the Weight Watchers plan than I did without it, but I am still losing and that is OK.

Things that the doctor told me today:


info for weight loss stuff )

Other things:
The swelling in my leg has continued to decrease.  The color looks almost normal, and a lot of dead skin cells are sloughing off.  I guess it is OK because the skin doesn't hurt.  It is still draining a lot, too.  Hopefully it will be manageable by Wednesday morning because we are going to Montana for Turkey Day!!
