Even though I'm not really following Weight-Watchers properly, I'm using their online tool to track my meals and my weight. Monday morning is my regular weigh-in time, so this morning I found that I've lost 9.4 pounds since starting Weight-Watchers. Which I suppose attests to the success of the "Can't-eat-or-drink-anything-you-like" diet, jump-started with 3 days of IV fluids. My clothes fit a little looser in the waist. Next week I'm going to check my summer clothes and see if I can wear some things I outgrew this past year.
How do I feel? I feel pretty good, although I get tired easily, and I feel cold most of the time. I feel hyper-aware every time my tummy gurgles, and I obsess over my bodily functions the way a mom does over a toddler or a new puppy.
While focusing on the date ahead, it's easy to have tunnel vision and lose sight of the world around me. I'm grateful for the support of [The Man I Love], my family and my friends. Thanks, guys, for putting up with me.
