Huge results to post today after feeling like I haven’t been moving anywhere on this diet Journey for about a month.

 

I decided why not take a couple of photos to do some comparisons and maybe do a little measuring. The scale is my enemy. The bathroom scale that is because my kitchen scale is used more times than anything I think in my house other than my pots and pans on my toilet. I know TMI. And by the way I do not use my pots and pans for a toilet just in case any of you were wondering.

 

So anyhoo even though I said I wasn’t going to weigh myself until I was at least a month post-op… I have been wearing myself like a freaking fiend trying to wear off another pound trying to lose another few ounces to get to a different weight goal. What a waste of time. Yes I did lose 5 pounds. I am currently at about 42 pounds lost but I knew that because I lost those 5 pounds before my surgery and haven’t lost anything since.

 

So this morning I had all kinds of extra time because my lovely children look up when they were supposed to. Their alarms went off and they jumped out of bed… Okay let’s get realistic one of them jumped out of bed and the other one kind of moved at a sloth’s pace from her bed to the floor and finally made it to the bathroom to brush your teeth and her normal bathroom stuff. Regardless though kids were downstairs lost dressed teeth brushed hair brushed ready to go out the door lunch bags in hand and a wonderfully hot breakfast in tummy half an hour early.

 

So as you can imagine at this point I am feeling pretty stinkin good about my mothering skills being 23 days post cervical spine surgery and still having amazing kids and an amazing husband getting everything done. Also side note Staples got removed yesterday and incision is looking pretty good. And yesterday I had some Huge results to post today after feeling like I haven’t been moving anywhere on this diet Journey for about a month.

So as you can imagine at this point I am feeling pretty stinkin good about my mothering skills being 23 days post cervical spine surgery and still having amazing kids and an amazing husband getting everything done. Also on Monday I got my staples taken out and in about two months I can start physical therapy. So yay exclamation point… really seriously! The speech to text thing is really making me sound like I’m a lunatic. That can’t be accurate.

 

Anywho, As I was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself, yesterday I also got to sneak out and go visit my sister for a little bit and also got a visit from a very good friend that I haven’t seen for a little while so it’s been a pretty darn good week so far.

 

 

So here’s the exciting part. In all actuality the children getting ready was not the exciting part because they generally do most of what I ask when I ask him to including all of their laundry. 9 years old doing laundry awesomeness right? Granted sometimes they need some gentle measuring coaxing or shoving in the direction of getting things totally accomplished but again 9 years old need I say more?

 

 

Okay so measurements done and… Drum roll please. Wait a second

 

double check

 

triple check

 

 

quadruple check

 

recalculate please

 

This can’t be right. The only thing that I’ve been able to do since my surgery or squats and leglifts which I have been doing daily sense about a week and a half ago but that’s it.

 

Here it is…

 

 

Since February 13th 2015 scratch that 2016 because I’m apparently out of your behind in my head, I have lost an additional five and three quarter inches. That brings my total lost to 47 pounds, But like I said the scale is not my friend so I don’t care about the scale because the inches don’t lie. I am currently at 46 & 1 quarter inches lost. That’s huge. Pet store near four feet. So almost four feet of fat gone forever. Exclamation point no seriously I actually wanted an! You have to excuse me because a lot of this is being done speech to text and sometimes my speech-to-text sides that it wants to change my words around. I think it’s a little demonic but I’m not a hundred percent sure.

 

 

Anyhoo that’s my awesomeness for the day. Pictures coming in a few minutes. I wish all of you lovely people a fabulous March 16th 2016.

Please accept my apologies for any craziness that my speech-to-text has made things out to be. I assure you I am not drinking or under the influence of anything.

 

Oh by the way… I also included an awesome meal that I made last night for dinner. Macros are for 1 serving. Recipe makes 4 servings. Use chicken breast for lower fat.PhotoGrid_1458134883666PhotoGrid_1458134242740PhotoGrid_1458133435156PhotoGrid_1458083395701
