34.6 Beyotches!!! SASHA FIERCE...YOU BETTA WORK!

Yeppers today is weigh in day and I am down 34.6lbs and i am super pleased.  I weigh everyday don't get me wrong but I am gonna record it on Fridays, this week has been rough though because most of the time I am surviving on willpower and luckily most of the time when I think I want something when I get it I really don't.  Also had had some weight fluctuations because it was TTOM and that's always good for a good 3-5lbs, I retain water like a camel, swollen ankles and all.
**** NSV alert****
I had my follow at the surgeons this week and they were quite happy with my progress but more happy that my  heart rate has dropped by 20, blood pressure was on the high end of normal, gerd issues are gone (those disappeared after the hiatal hernia/tumor removal surgery).   I felt guilty while I was there because I lied to the exercise lady and told her I had started exercise and I really have in my mind, but my resolution for next week is to exercise at least 3 days, I know what I can do is still limited but I can do my walking and I will, you guys hold me to it.
My surgeon tells me that if I don't feel I need a fill in 2 weeks I can reschedule the appointment, the heck I will I don't really feel restriction now, I get hungry too soon and it's hunger that hurts and it appears out of nowhere.  But I am trying to be good because I don't want to gain too much during bandster hell, I want the scale to continue downward. I need to lose 10.4 more to make my birthday goal.
A lot of my blog buddies are in Chicago with the BOOBS and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous, but I will be at the next get together believe that!  I hope they have a great time, I am there in spirit. 

(I was gonna round by loss number up to 35 but I said a day will come when those .2, .4 etc losses/gains are gonna be crucial to my mental stability so no rounding up!!!)

You are an inspiration to me! I just read back through some of your posts that I missed and you hit the mark on more than one things that I have felt, hid, or cried over. I am proud of you and how you are re-emerging to make your life full of all that you deserve. I only wish that I had found the courage earlier to have asked for help and made this change. I am not going to dwell on that though and am committed to be the best example I can be for my kids keep giving myself the room to grow, even if that means failing once in a while.

Yeah, I totally agree with not rounding up. Some times those partial pounds are all ya get, so every little bit counts! :)
