wins the race...right?
This week I show a loss of .5 lbs, nothing spectacular, but I will gladly take it. This brings me to a total of 23 lbs lost, not that much considering it is almost three months. Chrissy, the nurse at my doctor's office said that I am right on track and losing at a good rate. I guess she knows what she is talking about, but I really feel like I need to step it up a bit. Hopefully my fill yesterday will help!
I am happy to report that I completed my first week of C25K on Saturday and I feel spectacular! I have updated all of my stats (links are on the right side of my blog), however I was a bad girl this month. My goal was to do my measurements and progress pictures each and every month, but for some reason I did not do this for month 2. My three month bandiversary will be on the 20th, so I will just have to skip month two and jump to month three. I still have not posted my progress shots, I am too nervous. I want to post them, but I feel like I still haven't had enough loss to see a difference.
As I mentioned, I had my second fill yesterday, which I desperately needed. For the last week or so I really felt like I could eat and eat and eat! In the long run I wasn't too nervous about the lack of restriction because I had this appointment scheduled already. As long as there is still a steady weight loss I am not going to get worked up about it. Even on the days when I felt that I ate too much - it was still way less than pre-band.
My fill yesterday was quite the episode. I heart Chrissy, she is magnificent, she got in within 30 seconds without too much discomfort. She gave me 2 cc's, which would bring me to 6 cc's total. I received my little glass of water and waited to make sure everything was okay. Well, it wasn't! Holy salvation! I took one small sip and instantly loud and juicy gurgling sounds escape from my throat, very embarrassing! Then I couldn't swallow all of the liquid that my mouth was suddenly producing. I ran to the ladies room and hung my head over the sink and let my mouth drop open - omg the liquid just kept coming out! So, needless to say I had to go back and have some taken out. She took out 1 cc so now I am at 5 cc's total. I defiantly feel restriction with my water and protein shake, but nothing like the first fill yesterday. I think this will be a good one!
