In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue....
My Goal: -100 by Columbus day. 227 pounds
The Result: -99.5 pounds. 227.5 pounds
haha....MAN! I am totally rounding that up to 100lbs!
I lost 5.5 pounds this week. 4.5 the week before. I worked out 5 days this week. Only drank water. No diet lemonade, no diet Sierra Mist, no SUNKIST!!! I drank at least 100 oz each day. I ate my protein first. I put smaller portions on my plate. Stopped eating when my hunger went away...not when my plate was clean. I stayed away from snacking. Only ate at meal times. Tried to listen to my real hunger, not head hunger.
8.5 months after surgery. 100 pounds gone. I typed that out more for my benefit than yours. I get lost in "oh you could have done better" world sometimes. For example, 227 pounds is awesome, but it is really only 5 pounds less then when I left for the cruise...OVER A MONTH AGO.
But...I couldn't have done this without the band.
I don't plan on staying in the 220's long. Maybe 2...3 weeks at tops. I think I set my next goal for my one year bandiversary (January 27th) at 120 pounds lost...which would put me at 207. That is three months away though. I think I might have set the bar to low. But I have to remember that these weeks of losing 5 pounds are not the norm...but sometimes you get on such a high!
So what does 100 pounds mean for someone starting at 327 pounds. I went from a size 26/28 to a size 18. I went from a very tight size 7 at Lane Bryant to a size 3. That is really only 4 sizes. 4 sizes and 100 pounds. Crazy huh? But that is why I asked Catherine to post her size lost in relation to her weight loss. She said she noticed that it was taking less weight loss to drop a size. I hope to see the same thing with mine!
Oooh, do you know what this means? Time for some more weight loss pictures. I take my official weight loss pics every 20 pounds. I will have to do that tonight!
