Just how much have I lost?

new day

thanks for all the motivation, sometimes you need that.
I made better choices the last few days and it helped that there were no muffins in the house.
Today I had 1/2 a salad from salad works for lunch and the other half for dinner. I had my normal protein coffee for breakfast and some animal crackers to chew on something. I had a handful of peanuts also. It took everything in my being not to stop on the way home to buy a Skor bar from the store. I was haviing a chocolate fix bad.

Hopefully the scale will move soon in the right direction.

This morning I took my vitamins, and 2 tylenol which I broke in half. I did it very slow, and wouldn't you know I burped it back up. Yuck you know what a half dissolved pill tastes like? Not good I tell you. Not good.
I have this cold, yes I have a cold in the summer, and my nose is dripping like a faucet that needs fixing. So last night I took some of the tylenol with codine I had left from my surgery in December. It felt good to sleep.

Did I post that I went to the OB last week and told her I had a band. She said the lady she just saw before me had one too and lost 105 pounds in a year. Once again I am jealous, but what I didnt' know is what she weighed when she started and what she weighs now. But wow 105 pounds in a year that is fantastic. My goal that I wrote down on my forms at the surgeon before I got it was 75 pounds in a year, which he said at the time is a great goal. That means I need to lose 25 more before December. If I lose 5 a month it is possible but you know it means I need to work out much more consistantly.

What are your goals for the first year and what have you achieved so far?


  1. I am a follower of yours already... I love your blog. I know you can hit your goal by december... I will definitely lose more than 105 pounds in a year but I weighed alot when I started and that's probably the same for that other person too... It is hardest to lose the last few pounds but you will do it. I'm certain of that. *Maria* from "This one time at BAND Camp..."

  2. I'd like to lose a total of 100 pounds from my highest weight by my 1 year bandiversary. I'm 72 pounds into that goal, and I have little less than 5 months to go. So if I consistently plug away and lose 1.5 pounds per week, I should hit my goal.

    If I did that, I'd be under 200 pounds (194 to be exact), which would be the first time since about 1994 that I've weighed in the 100s.

    We can do it! We're December Delights! We'll get there one way or the other. :0)

  3. My goal for December is 160lbs, that would be a loss of 38 lbs. This is a really high goal, but it is around 2 lbs a week and I hope if I work hard and concentrate that I can acheive it!!!
    Good luck with your goals, remember you can do anything you put your mind to!!!!!
