So I'm down 4lbs! OMG... and of course I double and triple checked. Its true. I finally lost the pounds I gained back about 3 weeks ago or even a month ago. Plus a little more. Awesome! I'm feeling good. So I'm going to post a picture of the weigh in today...
Kind of crazy to see that number... because that technically is my lowest of lows. I knew I was having a good week and seeing it drop but just wasn't expecting this. And I mentioned yesterday about hating exercise. Okay, I probably don't hate it but I hate the part of "forcing myself" to do it. Because once I'm doing it, I'm good. Like last night... went rollerskating, I super enjoyed myself. We were out there for about 2 1/2 hours and skated at least 75% of the time. I really do enjoy it. Its been so long since I've done it, but I noticed this time my legs didn't hurt as bad. I was stronger for sure and could do things easier. Fellow blogger Andrea commented yesterday regarding my "hate" for exercise... she's right, I need to do it, especially if I want to lose more and get to goal. I know this deep down, but I've been in denial. Lol.
So time to reflect on this past weeks food/water intake:
Sunday --- Under calories at 1072, over sodium by 150 (oops), no real water intake (another oops).
Monday --- Under calories at 1232, under sodium, only 24 ounces of water in.
Tuesday --- Under calories at 911, under sodium, 72 ounces of water in.
Wednesday --- Under calories at 989, under sodium, 120 ounces of water in (hoping that made up for Sunday/Monday, haha).
Thursday --- Under calories at 1187, over sodium by 75, got in 72 ounces of water.
Friday --- Under calories at 1448, under sodium, got in 72 ounces of water.
Saturday --- Under calories at 942, under sodium, 2 ounces of water.
Kind of interesting week. I wonder if it was the calorie days under 1000 that helped. I definitely was not snacking at all this week. No extra foods, nada. I haven't felt the urge to really eat any other stuff. TOM also visited and left Friday, so that probably helped in things.
I seen yesterday's complete on MFP... and with the exercising, it said I would weigh 186 in 5 weeks. Which makes me think... is that really possible with just some exercising? Possibly... especially if I stay under 1000 calories each day. Hmmm... and then I am friends with another bander, she has lost 105 pounds... and was banded 8 months ago, she said she did it by staying under 1000 calories a day. It really has got me thinking that maybe I should try this method, just see how it goes. I know others say they stall... but I guess it doesn't hurt to see for a period of time.
Anywho...... main goal this week, EXERCISE!
BTW... I hit my 2 year bandiversary..... on November 17th, nothing major since I'm still not close to where I should be. Lol.
