Me and mom are both surprised at how well I am doing with my weight loss. So far I have lost 11 pounds in three weeks. I think it is mostly because of my stomach shrinking. Ever since I got sick a couple of weeks ago, I really do not have to eat that much to be full.
Mom says she has to finish something if it’s on her plate. If I finished everything that was on my plate, I would be torturing my stomach! Mom has taught me a lot of things about weight loss. (Some of them imperfections.) I just do not think about food now except when I am really, really hungry.
The weird part of all this is that I have not really been exercising but still maintaining my loss. But I hope to go to the Y today after school.
An awesome thing that happened on Wednesday was that I was picked as a finalist for my school science fair. There were about ten finalists out of 200 kids in my division. I do not get to go to regionals, but I got a blue ribbon and a finalist certificate!
