The weigh-in this Friday was sad as well. I know that mathematically it's not possible, but still seeing only a 0.2 pound loss this week was disheartening. I know I worked harder than that. Why doesn't the scale always reflect that?

Oh well... I need a new plan of attack for this week. Gotta push through.

Only lost 0.6 pounds this week. Boo to that!

Forgot to post that last week I lost 2.4 pounds, so that was good.

It's a love/hate relationship.

I ate unhealthy pizza for dinner.

And that's all I have to say about that.

I missed sweating.

Did 30 minutes on our new elliptical tonight. It was a little tough. Obviously my machine is different from the ones at the gym, and I also haven't worked out in months. I was given the ok to do moderate exercise 6 weeks after surgery, which was yesterday. It was tough but it felt really good to break a sweat. It kinda made my incision site burn a little, but it was my first attempt so I'm sure things will improve.

The elliptical we purchased was pre-owned, but in the user settings you can check how many hours it has been used and so I found out that it had only been used 5 hours! It's practically brand new! We got it for $350, which is like half the price of buying a brand new one from the store.   It's the Nordic Track E7SV. So far I have nothing but good things to say about it. I enjoy having something at home that I can do anytime I want.

Hopefully this will be even more motivation to keep healthy, exercise regularly, and reach my goal weight by my wedding in 2011.

We bought an elliptical today! Yay!!! I'm so excited to have this as an at-home work out option. More on that later this week.

Also, today is officially 6 weeks post-op for me so I'm allowed to start moderate exercise again. Woo hoo!
