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?) Anywho...it 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.
