This means you are losing body fat! If you are working out, this type of issue is going to happen, you'll be dropping body fat, but not "weight". It'll catch up, just keep doing what you are supposed to!

I had surgery Dec. 12, 2017. I've lost a total of 85 lbs (some from the liver-shrinking diet beforehand). The scale has been a frustrating place ... but I'm down four jeans sizes and the belt I started wearing two weeks ago is down another notch. So that's what I'm doing ... taking the inches and not worrying too much about the scale.

      From Combo to ala carte, my how meals have changed. Hubby and I would both get combo meals, and be able to finish them and that's after finishing off a basket of chips and salsa! These days we get ala carte or even share a combo. And I'm trying to be more conscious of the small bites. And trying to eat a little something in between. That is harder as I have always tried not to snack in between meals, but lately by the time it was time to eat, I'm not taking the time to chew and then it all goes down hill from there.  Still working on it and feeling the body changing YES!

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!
