After taking Ozempic for four weeks, I was down 8 lbs! And today down 3 more. That makes 11 pounds in 6 weeks. 😀

I'm only 2 pounds away from my lowest weight since surgery. But this time, I am going to get below 180! I think I have always been scared to lose any more weight. Nervous that I won't be able to maintain. But I'm ready. I'm not sure what my goal weight is, but I'm aiming for a size 8 and BMI within the healthy range. So whatever that ends up looking like, lol!

I haven't been lifting weights as much as I'd like. I came down with a sore throat and fever, I may have contracted the coronavirus but am not sure. I was so exhausted for a week and a half, I just couldn't get enough sleep and barely made it through the workdays. I'm glad I can work from home during this crazy time. Trying to stay positive during this time. Life will eventually go back to normal.

Feeling pretty excited today! I've still been losing weight but more slowly. And fit into a pair of size 30 (size 10) jeans last week that one of my friends gave me! I got rid of all my "skinny" size 10 clothes years ago, so I immediately ordered a couple more pairs of size 10 capris/ankle jeans since the smallest I have are size 12s. It's funny how I still didn't really believe I'm a size 10 now, I was convinced it was a fluke and the new jeans I ordered would not fit. But they did! 😁

Today was a scale victory day. The lowest I've been since surgery was 180.4 (on my one year surgiversary) and then I gained a little back. I feel like getting lower than 180 was scary to me because I still worry about keeping the weight off. Today the scale said 179.2! 😀 I'm feeling less worried about getting smaller and keeping the weight off. It is easier to lose for me since surgery than before, where I'd have to kill myself to lose weight. I did maintain the 180ish for a good amount of time so I just need to get to my goal and then focus on maintaining again. I don't think I've ever worn a size 8 in my life, but I think that's my goal. We'll see when I get there. 😉 Hoping to reach goal by my two year surgiversary on July 2nd.
