Okay, I weighed in at 197 this morning!! Woooo Hoooo!!! I did go up last week to 200 for two days then back down again. I really think my power walks at lunch are helping me a lot. If I can make myself do them during the hottest part of the year, I should have no trouble keeping this up throught the fall and winter months!
My size 16 pants are getting a little loose on me, so today I am going to try on some 14's!! I can't wait to try some on and see if they fit comfortably. Several people at work have been commenting on how nice I am looking, I have to admit it feels really good. I think it feels even that much better because I know I am working hard to get to where I am....it's not just falling off automatically.
I hope my Upper GI goes well on Tuesday. I am just a little worried because it's so early in the morning and my band is super tight in the mornings. Last night I was able to eat about 3 TBS of grilled chicken, 3 TBS of broccoli and 1-2 TBS of beans. That's a good healthy dinner, and even though that's not a lot of food, I think it's a good bandster size meal. So, most of the time I don't think my band is too tight, but the new doc will think so just by looking at the morning results of barium going through. The new docs might not even be looking for tightness.....they probably mainly want to see if the band is positioned right, no slips or dilations. I sure hope everything looks good!
It's amazing with 63 pounds gone I am starting to feel so different. I mean when I touch my elbows, knees, and shoulders I can actually feel bones that have been hiding out under mounds of fat! ha! It feels so good!! I can feel my hip bones if I push in...it will be great when I can feel them easily! I am hoping to hear about my blood test results soon also. I hope the numbers look really good!
