I weighed myself this morning. Not a Monday, but the first day back since my holidays. I lost .4 of a pound in the last three weeks. Hmmm… not the stellar weight loss that I had hoped for but… 😕 I didn’t gain any weight so that is something, but I had just dropped about 7 pounds in the week or so prior. I did eat what I wanted, when I wanted, where I wanted and totally misbehaved and enjoyed myself. I thought I had lost weight by how my clothes were fitting and my husband thought I had lost too, but I did lose inches. My weight seems to be redistributing itself finally and some shifting off my mid section. peculiar how with a RNY the weight sits there in midriff. never did that on me before. 🙄 so as of this morning I had a total loss in weight of 8 stone 2.4 pds. My BMI is about 39.4 and it was about 56.4 at my op time. so still morbid obese. in the USA I am down to a size 18 in jeans (UK 20) and on the top a USA size 14/16 (UK 16/18 ). I went into an ordinary store and bought sweaters that were a normal size large and they fit. in fact those usa size 18 blue jeans are getting too loose and I just bought them about 2 weeks ago. that was why I thought I had lost weight. 😕 but it must have been my weight redistributing and moving around because they are definitely looser and sagging in the butt and thighs. if I didn’t have this overhang of loose skin in the tummy, I wager that I might be a size smaller, because they fit me like a USA size 16 (UK size 18 ) 8) everywhere else except in the tummy area. I have lost a total of 116.25 inches off various parts of my body. so I MUST be getting smaller. the weight is slowing down, yet I find that I can eat more these days, so sometimes it is a struggle. various things still make me sick. like milk and peanut butter is really starting to bother me. oh well. would like to be able to drink milk again but don’t know if that will ever happen. 🙁 I don’t remember if I mentioned it before, but there was once while on holiday while brushing my teeth that I leaned forward over the sink and noticed a couple of matched shadows. 😯 so I stepped back and than leaned down again, and realized that it was the beginning of my collar bones to show. 8) cool. havne’t seen those in years ❗ I blended in while in the states. did not stand out size wise. that was cool. since being back here in the UK, I do feel bigger again. 🙁 I don’t know if I will ever feel normal here 😥 But I am getting smaller and things are moving so that is a good thing. 🙂
