SWEET!...I lost 3.6 pounds in one week.
I had a fairly awesome week so I am not surprised as much as I am glad that my hard work was confirmed by the scale.
I exercised everyday except Saturday...I only had one day where my calories were more than 1200. Which has NEVER happened for me. I typically float around 1700 calories a day...But since my last fill...I can't help but feel like I have FINALLY gotten to where I was meant to be this whole time. That elusive green zone has been teasing me and I have finally gotten there...Thank god!
As of today I have hit the mini mile stone that I had set for myself. Well actually I crushed it.
My short term goal has been to hit 25% loss of my excess body weight. So of the 165 pounds that I want to lose, I needed to lose 42 to hit 25%....I am at 44.2...So HA!...lol
God I am so close to 50 pounds...I have never lost that much.
In all my history of dieting and weight loss I lose motivation and have too hard a time sticking the the ridiculously restrictive diet that I had chosen to do. They always worked for a while and then I would go crazy and eat whatever it was that I felt I wasn't allowed to eat for the eight weeks I managed to stick to the "Whatever its name is" diet. Those 25 pounds I did managed to lose would be back on my ass in about 3 weeks and as I am sure you all know so would an additional ten pounds.
I don't feel that way this time. I got up this morning and pondered my options for breakfast...I could have made anything. Pancakes, waffles, eggs and toast...but I WANTED my protein shake. I am happy that only a cup of a high protein meal is all that I need and that I am not hungry for pretty close to four hours.
Making the jump to get my band was the greatest decision I have EVER made.
UPDATE: My baby girl is well on the road to recovery. She hasn't had a fever in 15 hours and is back to her bouncing happy self. THANK GOD!
