Mini Milestone

Current Weight: 316 lbs
Total Loss: 33 lbs
Avg. Loss/Week: 3.3 lbs
- Body Weight %age: 9%

Big week this week! Thirty-three pounds marks a significant, mini milestone for me: I’m now lighter than I was the August before Mom died. I weighed 316.8 right around the time I was planning to quit NRC and about a month before she went into hospice. That means I put on 33 lbs between her death and now. Grief weighed heavy on me both emotionally and physically. Emotionally, I have my good days and my bad but physically, I now carry a lighter load. How much lighter? Exactly the weight of a cinder block (33 lb equivalent). I know that would've made her happy and she'd tell me to keep going.
