It's Wednesday Weigh Day! I weighed in this morning at 217.6 lbs. (98.7 Kg.) for a loss of 1.4 lbs. (.64 kg.) for the week. Not as dramatic as my other weigh ins this month, but I'll take it! I am down 62.4 lbs. (28.3 kg.) total since February.
My goal is 37.6 lbs. (17.05 kg.) away. Let me say that again. My goal is 37.6 lbs. (17.05) away. I can't believe it. I know I still have a ways to go and ideally I'd like to lose more than 100 lbs. (45.35 kg.), but if I never lost any more than that, I'd be okay with it. Just thinking about it is completely overwelming - and I don't mean that I'm overwelmed by still having 37.6 lbs. to lose. I mean I'm overwelmed to be so close. I'm overwelmed that I've been able to do it thus far.
I see myself now and I think I look pretty good. Not thin, of course, but not bad. When I started, I felt like anyone looking at me would see mainly fat. Now I'm sort of "normal-fat" if there is such a thing.
I'm also not really doing anything special. I'm definately not dieting. I am eating whatever foods I want. My lap-band keeps my quantities under control. I try to eat enough protein, drink lots of water, and get daily exercise. I'm not going crazy with sweets, but have something sweet once or twice a week. There isn't anything I am doing that I could see stopping once I get to goal. Maybe I should say that again! This is my life now and I can't believe it! I've always wanted to be able to live like this. I eat when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full. I enjoy eating and I don't feel ashamed of my food choices. I love my lap-band!
