I weighed myself today and my weight is 283 pounds.
I lost 4 pounds since February 9. So I suppose I’m losing about 1 pound per week, which interesting enough is the Weekly GOAL I set on MyFitnessPal months ago.
I diligently record my calories on MyFitnessPal, that’s the ONLY activity I’m doing towards weight loss. I’m not dieting, I’m not restricting calories.
I had a couple days where I went way over on my calories. I ate 800 calories OVER my goal on one day in particular. I ordered a bunch of chocolate that day via my online grocery shopping, so online shopping doesn’t prevent me from eating junk.
Last week I joined a gym. I’m already having buyers remorse because I have not been to the gym yet. I didn’t join for weight loss purposes. I joined because I’ve been off work and sitting around the house and I need something to do with my time. My therapist suggested this gym to take exercise classes to fill up my time. I am interested in the daily water aerobics class at this gym. I just haven’t pulled it together mentally to get there so I hope this doesn’t end up being a waste of money.
It’s looking like I might have all the money to get my surgery within the next couple of months. We’ll see, I don’t know for sure, but if I do get the money soon like I’m hoping, I am so scared. I have to make the appointment with the surgeon in Mexico, buy plane tickets for me and my sister to go. The main thing I’m worried about is my money being stolen in Mexico or being a scammed. The second thing I’m worried about is after care. There is none when you get surgery in Mexico. I did research the doctor, it just all makes me nervous. It’s Dr. Armando Joya out of Puerto Vallarta, he performs his procedures at the Amerimed Hospital, a chain of hospitals dedicated to the medical tourism.
