For the first time in MONTHS, I have actually lost more than one pound this week! I am down 1.4 lbs. (.6 kg.) for a total of 106.4 lbs. (48.3 kg.). I now weigh 173.6 lbs. (79.2 kg.). My BMI is 26.4.
It has been nearly three months since I saw a loss greater than one pound in a week. I've been in the 170's since December 17, 2010. At this point I am considering it an aberration. Next week I'll probably be down .2 lbs. (.09 kg.).
I wonder how many posts I will write about slow weight loss. It is hard to come up with a new way to spin it except to say that weight loss slows down as you get smaller. I am happy with my current weight. Although I'd like to see a "normal" BMI (still 10.6 lbs. (4.8 kg.) away), I'd be fine if I never lost another ounce. At this rate I won't see a normal BMI for quite some time!
So let's move on to something more interesting! There is going to be another get-together in Eugene, Oregon for anyone who can make it on Saturday, March 5th. I'll be there, Tina, Lap-Band Gal and Jen will all be there. We're talking about meeting at P.F. Changs. I'm so excited! If you think you can make it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
