So tomorrow is my weigh in at the University of Minnesota weight clinic again. It was supposed to be about 2 weeks ago, and due to the doctors schedule my appointment was cancelled. UGH! I don’t like when that happens but I like my doctor there, and the clinic is always slammed with people. Anyway, I have had three weeks of anxiety about my impending weigh in.
Why am I nervous about my weigh in? I keep talking about it, to pretty much anyone that will listen. I know that my gym friends are sick of hearing about it because it as been 3 weeks of impending whats going to happen at the doctors anxiety.
Now, I own a scale… I can tell you exactly what is going to happen… I will go, check in, they will take my vitals weigh me, and guess what… I will have lost weight. I will not have lost as much as I wanted. I want to be losing at a much faster rate, like I had been when I was 400 pound. I will talk to the doctor about this, she will tell me all the things I already know. Things like it is not a race, and more activity will help you lose faster, and your body cannot sustain a loss rate now like it once could and plateaus happen.
So I get it, but I still sit in high anxiety mode. I guess I want to hear good news. I like to hear that big number. Big is becoming a relative term though, 10 pounds or so in 10 weeks is what I think it is coming out at. Nothing to squawk at, a nice consistent rate, attainable goals.
So watch my Twitter tomorrow (Tuesday) because I will be updating that from inside the doctor’s office! Stop back tomorrow night for a post about how far I have come on my journey according to the doctors scale.
Also in other news I finished Week 1 of the c25k today! 1.51 miles in 30 mins. I am getting stronger… these thighs will carry me to Victory!
