Last weekend, the weekend of July 4th, 2020, my nuclear family took a four day vacation nearby. It was a vacation area where we felt comfortable that we could social distance yet get our three year old away from the house.
Given that I’d been having post-op digestive issues for a couple weeks, I was concerned about the food situation while traveling. Since I was on soft foods, I did my best to stick with that group of foods but had to have grilled chicken breast a couple of times. That was met with success. So, when I returned, despite the fact that I hadn’t lost much weight in almost a week after losing very steadily before the trip, I decided to try to transition back onto regular foods while avoiding being too aggressive.
I wasn’t sure what was going to happen weight loss wise but, as it turned out, my body apparently readjusted to regular foods on our mini-vaca because I started losing weight again right away.
When I got on the scale yesterday and saw that the number had fallen below 210 pounds, my psyche shifted. Suddenly, that first massive milestone that I’d been waiting for, the so-called “onederland” seemed imminent. It’s surreal. It’s exciting. It’s something indescribable.
Hopefully this goes without saying, but I am greatly looking forward to my next update – Onederland!
