A New Low!!!

Well folks I saw my lowest number on the scale this morning since I have been out of the Navy...311.8. I saw it so therefore I am claiming it!!! It's mine!!! No one can tell me different!!! At least until my insecurities get the best of me tomorrow on the doctor's office scale :)This brings me to a total loss of 38.2lbs!!! I have 5 more day to hit 40lbs by February and by golly I am going to try my damnedest to get there! 311 and I have had a history before. In 2008 I had lost just about what I have lost now and then it all went to hell. That was my most successful diet to date. Now it feels so good that I am not giving up like I did before. All I have to say is watch out world this fat wife is slowly shedding her blubber! Drazil challenged all her readers to work out everyday for the last 6 days of January starting yesterday. So I got right on the elliptical when I got home from work and turned on the fast paced music. After that I almost threw up because I was trying to keep up with the beat the whole time. lol Scared the crap out of my dog running to the bathroom. I didn't do any weights last night just my 40mins of cardio. We also went to dinner last night at Chili's. I got the Fajita Trio and just ate the meat and veggies. YUMMY! Yep I ate the whole thing! Which is still a ton less then I would have eaten pre band. Of course I was really hungry and ate to fast without chewing well enough and almost PB'd. I am so scared of PBing and messing up my band because I just can't ever seem to remember to chew my food. I had this problem allot before I got banded. Both my husband and I have this mentality that we have to eat every meal as fast as we can and get on to whatever it is we are doing next. I think it has to do with the fact that we are military and for a long time both of us had to eat that way. It is a challenge to change this habit. I am sure though that after enough times of almost PBing I will learn my lesson.


  1. YOU GO GIRL - that's amazing! I hope I'm as successful as you've been after I get a little bit more "filling." :)

    I know what you mean about eating too fast!! Because I've noticed when I go out to eat I do try and kind of keep up with everyone else - NOT a habit I want to keep. I haven't PB'd yet, but like you it's pretty much my biggest band fear. I guess after I get a little restriction, it's a definite possibility, though.

    Anyway, hope you have a good day!!

  2. Just wait until you keep seeing all SORTS of new lows. Trust me, it's an amazing feeling! You're doing great!

    I also nominated you for a blog award! ;)

  3. Yes! I'm so proud of you!!! You should feel so great about yourself. And the wonderful thing about it this time around is that it's a lifestyle change instead of a diet. Anyways, you can't see me but im clapping and jumping up and down for you girl! Keep it up!

  4. YEEHAWWWWW - yes, yes, yes! Now don't freak out if the scale goes up for a few days. AFter working out so hard your muscles will retain water for a few days...just keep going mmkkaayy?
