Yep, yep … it is that “Day” again. The day that I take myself down to the clinic, and I attend a meeting with my SFD peeps (solid food deprived); get weighed in; and meet with the doctor … and this week … I met with their Trainer, Adam. I think Adam likes to hear me whine … cuz he pushes me until I squeal … are he and Donna related? Of course, today is also the day that I pick up my food for the following week, a very yummy prospect when your muscles are all wobbly and like a noodle. To further electrify my thrills for the day …. I had to pick up TWO WEEKS of food for while I am away next week. Doubly sweet, and I don’t mean like juicy fruit gum, on limp arms and wobbly legs. I made it … I am sure you were worried, I made it but NOT without whimpering and huffing and puffing … just sayin’ — people were looking at me a tad strange.
The strange looks could have been the fact that I was in shorts and it was chilly outside … but sister was HOT, and I don’t mean in the sexy kind of way. My hair was all mussed up, and I was very sweaty … no … I wasn’t glowing … I was sweating!
So … what do you all think? Am I a Loser or a Gainer? I have to tell you I was a little nervous, different from times before. Why? ‘Cuz brainiac here stepped on the scales at home that said I had NOT lost anything all week, but gained a pound! I know, I know … we are NOT supposed to do that, and I did …. BIG MISTAKE! Made my Bp #’s go up a touch.
Here’s the details on Weigh in #9:
I lost 3 pounds — to weigh 215.5 — this makes me a half a pound away from loosing 40 pounds on Optifast. Another really amazing thing is over the week, I gained a pound and a half of muscle and lost 4 pounds of fat … I gained a pound of fluid this week which is why I only lost 3 pounds. LOVE … LOVE … LOVE the muscle gain. =D
And a total loss of 47.5 since starting with Donna, the “Trainer Nazi,” Jones.
I OFFICIALLY WEIGH LESS THAN MIKE! Yeah, baby, do tha happy Dance! Yeah, uhuh! OH YEA!!!

Ok, so I am a very happy girl. It was so cute … I texted my hubby and two daughters what I weighed while I was waiting for Dr. Ard to get there … and, when I got in the car after my torture treatment with the Trainer, I had a text from my youngest daughter. Her text read … “Holy Crap! That’s awesome … I didn’t know you were that close to 200 … That’s awesome!” The older daughter has been keeping up with the actual numbers a little closer, wrote me later and said, “Wow! Great! You go Mom!” I have such good support. Of course, Mikey cheered for me me and told me all kinds of encouraging stuff when I called him.
I always call my Mom and my hubby after I leave the clinic … my mother has cracked me up the last two weigh ins. She finally looked at the blog and went crazy excited over my pictures. She was just as cute today — this is fun for everyone who cares for me — they have worried about me for so long. I know I am getting the biggest gift from my weight loss in-terms-of my health, but watching the relief wash over my families faces, and their joy and hope that maybe … just maybe we have this dang noose of obesity around my neck licked — is beyond icing on the cake. Their joy takes my breath away. They have always been their for me. They have always cried with me; stood with me; hoped with me; and I know they feared with me …. The most magnificent gift of all … is … their joy and relief.
Well …. you all have a Bang-up Good DAY … I am about to figure out what I am going to do with the rest of mine …. S
I am going to the beach next week … and I have NO swim suit — haha. I don’t think the one I have is gonna do the trick … YIKES! Swimsuit shopping?!?!?
