This week, there's a post on my main blog about me and lymphedema. Part of the treatment requires that for the time being, I wear compression bandages on my legs. Yesterday, my physical therapist weighed the bandages, and we determined that they weighed 1.5 pounds. So I was going to have to take that extra weight into account when I stepped on the scale at WW tonight.

I stepped on the scale and had lost 0.4 pounds...... so that means had I been bandage-less, it would have been right around 1.8 or 2.0 pounds. Holy cow!!!!!! I'll take the official reading, because that is what WW tracks, but HOLY COW!!!! Even with bandages, and looking like Borissa Karloff from knee to mid-foot, I still lost weight.

Color me VERY happy!!!!!
