¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo, Amigos Míos!
I decided to weigh in today (technically a day early) since I weighed in LAST Wednesday. I am down 3.6 lbs. (1.6 Kg.) for the week which brings me to 39.4 lbs. (17.9 Kg.) total. So close to 40 lbs. (18.1 Kg.)!
I've also had TWO people notice my weight loss who do not know about the surgery. One was actually a couple of weeks ago and one was yesterday. I personally feel really different. I feel like activities like walking up the stairs no longer leave me out of breath. Actually I now sort of bound up the stairs! When I look at myself, I am not shocked by how big I am.
On the band-front, I am definitely not as tight as I was. I had an amazing sandwich (flat bagel with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, avocado, pickle, and tomato) for lunch yesterday with no issue. I also had a salad and spaghetti for dinner without any major problem. Being so tight before was a little scary. I don't think I need quite so much restriction right now. I like being able to eat all types of food. Also I noticed that my caloric intake didn't go down THAT much even though practically everything got stuck for 4 1/2 days.
So have a lovely Wednesday! Here are some calories counts for your festive Cinco de Mayo: Margarita 300 calories, 0 protein, Tortilla chips - 13, 143 calories, 2 grams protein, Salsa 2 Tbsp. 15 calories, O protein, Guacamole 2 Tbsp. 50 calories, 1 gram protein.
