I know I should cut myself some slack. I just had surgery and I am on medication that causes me to be in menopause and slow down my metabolism. I still don't give up but I have to admit I am a bit dismayed. I lost weight much quicker in the challenge last spring/summer but I was also on different medication then and I didn't have to slow down for a surgery during that time.
So my frustration is due to the fact that I have the mid-point weigh in at the gym this Saturday. They have a different scale in the results center now and when I stepped on it this evening after biking for 30 minutes I was only down 3 pounds since starting their challenge almost 6 weeks ago. Granted I weigh in there in the mornings and this was in the evening and after consuming about 20 ounces of water while cycling but it is still depressing... I am down more than 3 pounds on my home scale but I anticipated it would be about 10 pounds by this point.
I just want my body back to it at least where it was before cancer. My reconstruction is well on its way and now I just want the rest of my body to follow suit!!!!
