I needed a break. I needed a breather. I needed to veg on my couch and rewatch hours of Project Runway. ( I LOVE that show.)
But I didn't want to completely derail all the good habits that I had started and in my vegetative state I discovered that my "lifestyle" has changed. I'm just simply a lot more active than I used to be in general.
That felt good.
And I knew this wouldn't be a long term break. I've only got 3 months until I see my sweetheart and come hell or high water I WILL weigh less than him. For the first time EVER (since we met.) I'm determined to be in Onederland by the time he sees me again.
And so I stepped on the scale and did a little dance.
Highest recorded weight - 284
Starting weight w/lapband - 264.4
Last week - 224.6
This week - 222.2
So I still lost and that makes me happy. I'm not where I had hoped to be. I'm still 8 pounds more than my next goal that I had wanted to reach by today...but the loss is steady and I can't and won't complain.
