Did you miss me? I had a wonderful vacation. BFF & I went to Tulsa to see the USA Men's Volleyball team play France in World League play. I tried to eat/drink what I enjoyed, but to not make excuses to eat things I didn't really want/need.
After doing SO well (and spending so much time hungry) Monday-Thursday, I didn't want to ruin it on vacation. I'm happy to say that I lost 3 pounds this week. I know the first week is always the best, so I'm not getting cocky or anything. I'm just happy that my hard work paid off. Four pounds to go to my first mini goal and 37 more pounds to go in my 40 by 40 challenge.
Today was my fill appointment. I know I had a rough time last week with my hunger. I know realistically that it would be hard for me to sustain my good behavior this way, but my biggest fear is being too tight. To me, that just isn't acceptable. Seeing that I had very little issue eating sushi rolls (in one bite, albeit chewed well) and pizza. I felt that I should proceed. The doc checked out my band and it looks great! She gave me another baby fill of one tenth of a cc. Everyone marveled again about how sensitive I am. Yeah, yeah, I know. Anyway, I'm hoping this will do it.
I am sipping at my coffee and it is going down, but it is definitely slow. I will have to follow the liquid diet for two days rule this time for sure. I feel confident thought, like always, that the swelling will go down in a couple of days. Then I'm hoping that I can proceed with good healthy food in proper portions along with my exercise plan.
No working out today. Tonight BFF & I are going to some show that is similar to a Cirque type performance. Hopefully it will be fun. I'm trying to convince myself to go to CrossFit Thursday and Friday in addition to the elliptical tomorrow and Thursday. The other option would be Jazzercise Thursday and Saturday instead. That would be good too, but I need to be more consistent with CF.
I have only lost weight two weeks in a row twice so far this year, so I'm committed to making sure that happens this week. I often use a liquid diet to eat things I want like ice cream, etc. Not this time! Logging everything like I should.
Hope your week has started off well!
