Today’s weigh-in, the seventh since I started posting them each Monday, comes to you courtesy of Halifax, Nova Scotia’s QEII Health Sciences Center’s Kidney Dialysis Unit, which helpfully provided a scale when I showed up out of nowhere and asked for one. It’s apparently used to weigh patients before and after dialysis treatments. Beyond that I know nothing except that the staff on the unit and the helpful fellow in the emergency department who checked around to see who had a scale I could use are really some great people.
I had absolutely no idea after all the odd stuff I’ve eaten this previous week where my weight was going to wind up. You could’ve tripped over my smile, then, when I saw what the scale had to say.
And that’s with my socks on!
I have now lost just about exactly 10% of my body weight since I started taking diet and exercise seriously in June of this year. I don’t know where this is going to wind up, but if you had told me three months ago that I would weigh in the low 330s by mid-August I would’ve laughed in your face. When I get home I’m not going to have a darn thing in my closet that will fit- and that suits me just fine.
