Last week I had an appointment at the Calgary Weight Management Clinic. It was well overdue – I haven’t been in 6 months! I missed an appointment in late June right before we left for my High School Reunion and I attend the clinic for follow-ups every 3 months. With a busy summer full of visiting, travelling and work, it felt really great to go in and focus on my goals again.
I feel like I plateaued after losing 80 pounds. I weigh myself on a digital scale at home and my weight has been static for a few months now which has been somewhat discouraging. Over the last few months however, I have noticed that my body shape has continued to change. My clothes are fitting better and I have even gone a size – proof that the scale is not king when it comes to body transformation and lifestyle change.
At my appointment, Dr. Walji shared this chart:
Each of those increments is 5 kg and they are very pleased with both the overall loss as well as the rate.
Those who read regularly know that I am not doing the FAT Project to lose weight but to feel better and run an Olympic Triathlon at the end. In my case, weight loss is a part of feeling better and it will help me reach my goal.
