Weekly Check In – 4/29/2020

Forty one weeks out from surgery, and here are the numbers I care about: Weight: 252 Blood Sugar: 93 The scale has not moved an ounce. This is mostly my fault, but I’m choosing to be as kind to myself as I’m able to pull off (beating myself up is instinctive, and I’m exceptionally good...
