Just 5 days to lose 4 pounds...

5 days...4 pounds...

It sounds like an advertisement for a Biggest Loser campaign of some sort.  And let me just tell you that I'm going to be really grumpy if I don't meet my first goal of 25 pounds lost. 

I seem to be stuck at 240.4 right now...can't seem to budge that number.  I've been there for a week.  With an occasional pound up, but NEVER a pound down.  Maybe my scale is afraid of the 230's?  Its afraid I won't be back to visit as often?  That must be it.  I've got a pathetic, insecure and lonely scale.

HA!  I have put "Operation drop 4 pounds in 5 days" into full swing though. 

1.  I started the C25K yesterday.  I ran/walked for a good 30 minutes...with an extra 25 pounds of stroller pushing and a 4 year old on a hot wheel tracking alongside me.

Then on my off day, today, I did weight loss yoga with Bob from Biggest Loser.  Holy crap that kicked my butt.  I do not move that way.  Imagine a whale...not just any whale...I like to think of myself as a beluga whale...regardless...a whale that is in plank position.  Yup.  Thats what I FELT like...ugh.  I think the worst part about a yoga DVD is that you have to be able to see what they are doing and downward dog is not a position condusive to seeing a television screen.

2.  My first fill.  I'm going to make a scrapbook of my lapband and make a whole page for my first fill.  It is a big milestone in lapband world.  (did you know there is a whole community of banders that discuss this stuff?) happens on FRIDAY!  Woohoo!  Super excited to see what, if any difference the first fill will make.  Most go on a full liquid diet for 24 hours after it and then slowly introduce food back into their bodies.  That ought to be at LEAST a pound or two's worth of effort???

And about that fill...I've been told its less pain than a blood draw.  Glad to hear that.  The size of that needle still makes me a little nervous.

So keep your fingers crossed that I can budge the scale down FOUR more points in the next 5 days.

Not meeting my goal is not an option.


  1. Sounds like you're on track - so whether you get those lbs off in time or not, keep on keepin' on my friend.
