Status Update #8

Today, Indianapolis is covered in multiple inches of snow, and it is fricken freezing. There was some weak sunlight filtering through the clouds earlier today, and it even managed to find a hole or two to shine through for a second. Now…it’s snowing again. Guh.

None of which is relevant, I suppose, but I couldn’t think of any other way to intro this entry, so…now you know what the weather is like in Indianapolis.

But you didn’t come here for that. So here are some numbers instead.

Weight on day of surgery: 239.2 lbs
Weight last month: 173.2 lbs
Weight today: 168.4 lbs
Total lost: 70.8 lbs


To put that into perspective, my five year-old nephew weighs about as much as I’ve lost. I just…

I wonder if this is a thing that other people who’ve lost a lot of weight go through. I have this really odd cognitive dissonance going on. See, I knew that I was overweight. I have photographic evidence that I was overweight. The clothes I’ve taken to Goodwill for being too large are yet another testament to how overweight I was. But yet I can’t seem to wrap my brain around the fact that my being so overweight was really a thing that happened. It’s…weird.


Because of the weather here in Indy (see, I did manage to find a way to make my babbling relate to the rest of the entry after all), I have not been going for walks or riding my bike. Sorry, twenty-four degrees is a little cold for a walk. I did my time for that when I was living in Cleveland and had to walk to school every day, no matter the weather. So just…no.

But next week I hope to take some introductory yoga classes. I have never done yoga before, but my older sister has, and she’s enjoyed it quite a bit. I believe it even helped her with her own weight loss efforts, so that’s a plus. I shall let you know how it goes.

In the meantime, here’s the usual status update photo.

I had to shorten this necklace so it would fit properly again. Huzzah!
