Weigh in - maintaining during a crisis

5/29/11 weight - 263.0

This week's weight - 262.2

0.8 pounds LOST

67.2 pounds lost since June 2010

I haven't weighed in officially in a couple weeks because on June 3rd my mom had brain surgery to fix a ruptured brain aneurysm. I spent several days watching my mom in intensive care wondering if she was going to survive this, much less ever be herself again.

She goes home tomorrow. And she is so lucky to be back to her normal self with only an excruciating amount of pain left as a reminder. So, so, so lucky.

The last 10 days has been filled with food choices based on what my sister had on hand in the house (lots of processed food), fast food and hospital meals. Not to mention the bag of chips, muffins, candy and cookies kept in my mom's hospital room for visitors. I had some meals made of good choices and some not so good. I am bloated and feel like crap.

How I lost a fraction of a pound over the last 2 weeks, I have no idea. I'll take it as a gift that has been given to me and all I can do is go back to my normal way of eating and regular exercise routine.

I've missed so much these last 10 days - one of them being my blogaversary on June 6th. Hopefully I'll find the time to devote a whole post to this milestone, but I thought it was worth mentioning in passing anyway.
