So last week, I posted about my epiphany.
I started off that week weighing 256.6
and today I am 253.8
That is almost a whole 3 lbs in a week. Am I really starting to get it?
That is exciting. Sure.. there were even a couple small slip ups, but I kept moving forward. It was a pretty challenging week as we have been getting record high temps of 87 here. :)
I was invited to BBQ's almost every night. I kept reciting to myself.. I am in the losing phase... there will be more BBQ's next summer...and I was able to say no to what I needed to. I was still able to sip on my water, have a plum, and enjoy the company of my friends.
I really hope I can keep the momentum going. I feel my band is filled just right, because I am not as hungry, and feel satisfied with the much smaller portions I have been having. It's nice to feel what it is supposed to feel like. I have only had this good of restriction a couple of times.
A cool side note...
I was walking to the ball field for my softball game, and I saw a good friend walking behind me. I kept going, and when I got to the dugout, my friend walked right past me. I said "Hey, no hello?" He looked at me and said he didn't recognize me from the back, and that he noticed how slim I was getting. Now, I had just seen him about a couple weeks before, so I don't know if he was just saying that because he didn't say hello, but I think he was serious. Hey.. I'll take it.
I am going to do one year progress pictures in August. I am kind of excited to see them. I can't believe it's almost been a year. Oiy.. I need to really focus!
