Fat Tuesday Weigh In

I was a little afraid of my weigh in today.  I took a week off.  Yup.  Ok...more like 5 days off...I exercised on Monday with a 1/2 hearted zumba class then didn't get off my butt again until Friday...And then did 2 days of running 2 miles each and some informal bike riding at my 4-year old with training wheels pace...not exactly breaking a sweat with that...

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
Banded 4/24/2013
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.


  1. Way to go! You may not be exactly where you want to be, but you are looking great and getting super healthy. Running two miles is like some unfathomable, distant dream for me. I am so proud of you!
