Weigh In for 11.20.11

Weigh-In:  209.0

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.

Great loss for the week! I would just keeping doing what you're doing and eating like you did this week and you'll be golden. :)

To be honest, the weight doesn't fall off because of exercise, but because of our diets. Exercise does help, but not anywhere close to how fast you'll drop by making good food choices.

Amazing loss this week!

I always stress if I should change up my calorie intake to help lose the weight but its just me being impatient with the process, just do what you are doing, start working out and let your body do the rest, its going to rebel some weeks and other weeks really reward you. Trust me been there done that and bought the tshirt!
