5 month bandiversary

July 28, 2008 at 8:43 pm 4 comments

Today is 5 months since surgery.   Total loss as of today is 83 lbs.  I lost 11 lbs this month, which is one pound more than last month, but less than I’d like to lose in a month.  I only lost 6.5 inches, compared to 10.75 inches last month.  At least I broke the latest plateau and I am on my way down again.  I don’t think I’ll meet my goal of -100 lbs by 6 months.  I have 17 lbs to go for that.  I’m working hard on exercising everyday.  I signed up with Spark People to track my exercise.  They have videos that show how to do different exercises which helped me a lot.  I’m scheduled to do cardio Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat, then strengthening exercises Sun, Tues, and Thurs.  I will add at least another day of cardio in there.   

I don’t have much else to say right now.  I’m kind of down, trying really hard to remember that this is a marathon and not a sprint. 

Here are my five month pics:

    Feeling down after 83 lbs??? Are you kidding me? You are WAY to hard on yourself. 83 lbs! What a seriously awesome outcome. You’ve worked hard, and all the hard work shows. Rejoice that you are lighter and healthier then you have been. You inspire me. If I can do 83 lbs in one year, I’ll be so happy.

    You’re exercising and sometimes exercise causes weight plateaus and sometimes even weight gain from losing fat but gaining muscle, which weighs more.

    Plus, 11 lbs. a month is very impressive from an overall standpoint since a weight loss average of 2-3 lbs. per week is the safest and most likely to stay off over time. 🙂

    SparkPeople rocks. I love their site, and I need to get back on the wagon, so to speak!

    Congratulations on 83 lbs!
