I have twenty five days, including today, to get to the goal weight set for me by the Bariatric Surgery Center. So....hmmm....let's do some math. I am up 3 pounds since the great Texas eating vacation of 2009 which puts me back at 286 (naked). My goal is 283. It sounds like a measly 3 pounds but since, THANKFULLY, they do not weigh you naked I need to account for 2-3 pounds of clothing + lucky me will be ovulating right around then and retaining some lovely water weight. Roughly, I have about 9 pounds to lose and because rounding is fun, let's say 10. 10 pounds in 25 days?? That is .4 pounds a day. Time to get serious.
Thank you US Airways! Your seats were roomy, far more than that other airline and the seat belt fit without an extender, in fact, I had room to spare. Thank you for making me feel like I belonged on that plane and not like I was trying to squeeze into Barbies corvette.
On a side note; 4 days of vacation yummy Mexican food and margaritas has left me higher on the scale than I am comfortable with. Some, if not most, is water weight, I'm more bloated than a Macy's day parade balloon. Ouch.
