Happy Easter! Happy Spring! Happy April Fools Day! Happy April to all!
Quick check in and monthly weigh in update:
March was a struggle! I gained a small amount of weight while we were out of town for our anniversary. It took me an entire week after that to get back to where I was at the beginning of the month. Then I had a small setback…ice cream and jelly beans may have been involved!!! So my weight fluctuated up and down that week. I got back on track after that and then my “time of the month” hit!
Overall for the month I did loose weight, but not a lot. I’m ok losing weight slow, I know I’m headed in the right direction and that’s what’s important! It’s a marathon not a sprint!
For Dan, he has had a rough time getting the weight off! For the first time ever, my weight loss has actually surpassed his consistently. He isn’t cheating, he is eating right. So it doesn’t make a lot of sense.
He is frustrated but not enough to give up! We both have annual physicals in April, so we will have our doctor check into what could be hindering his progress. Does anyone have suggestions on lab work that we should ask her to check?
Update on his knee: Dan will have his knee scoped in May. It is an outpatient procedure and he should be back to work within a week.
I hope you all are feeling strong, encouraged and seeing success on and off the scale!! Here’s to a successful April!
