Wouldn't it have been nice to round off the month still in the 130s? But, alas, I jumped back up a pound this morning to 140.6. No doubt water weight. I wonder why I am retaining water? When I was sick, I was not drinking my normal 72 oz. each day, and yesterday, for the first time since surgery, I did. Possibly my body is not used to it anymore, and it needs to readjust.
No nausea this morning. And no pain. A little groggy from a short night of sleep - around 5.5 hours. Now and then I go through periods of insomnia. This has gone on for a few days now, so I hope I can nip it in the bud. It's a hormonal imbalance. Women with very low progesterone, like myself, cannot sleep naturally, and while I was sick, I was off my BHRT. I'm back on now, so hopefully, I'll get back on track soon.
Work today! I never thought I would be happy about going to work! I'm going stir crazy in this house. I was even thinking about going back the the gym, if nothing else, to do my PACE routine on the treadmill. I'll ask the doctor if it is too soon to start lifting weights again.
Since this is the last day of the month, I'm going to be really obnoxious and post all kinds of stats, just for my own amusement. If anyone is reading this, feel free to allow your eyes to glaze over, or maybe just drift away to sleep.

One of the things I track is the average weight for each calendar month. It is not a moving average - I just take my scale weight each day of the month, add them together and divide by the number of days in the month. It gives me an idea of the overall trend.

155.0 - February 2009
150.9 - March 2009 - lost 4.1 pounds
