Slowly. But the scales are definitely definitely moving down. Just half a pound off this week. But given the weekend of excess I had last week this is a good result. Checking my ‘journey’ I can see this is my lowest weight for around 2.5 years.
My BMI which was 33 when I was weighed at the hospital in November is now 31. My main drive for weight loss now is to get to an acceptable weight for breast reconstruction surgery. And, I’m nearly to that marker (between 30 and 31). But I’m not stopping there.
I’m also pretty sure that there will be an inches loss when I measure myself around 1st March. This I know because the smaller bra I bought about 6 weeks ago is now on the tightest fastening. I’ll be back in a 36 bra pretty soon (and I have a lot of 36 bras, though none of them for people who’ve had a mastectomy.
So, despite the modest weight loss this week and this month, I’m feeling very positive.
