This week (week 6) has been an eventful one in my little weight loss world.
I had my first "have you lost weight? You look good" comment from a friend in my book club on Tuesday. Of course she also asked "What have you been doing?" so I was honest and told her I had bariatric surgery - it still feels like a cop-out. "Well, I had bariatric surgery...so I've been eating fewer than 800 Calories a day and exercising more."
I also took my first Zumba class! It was lots of fun. I checked my watch after the first 15 minutes or so and I thought there was no way I was going to make it through the entire 50 minutes, but I did it and then proceeded to walk the 1.5 miles or so home. I think I might try Zumba again on Friday through another organization to see if I like that one better and then pick whether I want to do the Wed 5:30pm class or Fri 7:30pm class. Maybe I'll continue to do both? That would make my current "workout" schedule Zumba 1-2 nights a week, and a brisk 1.5mi walk 4-5 times a week.
I still have a looooong way to go, but I think I've started out right.
