Is Twice a Week too Much? (Week 25)

Hey Bloggers. Hope everyone's doing well today.
I've been doing some thinking and I've realized that I've kind of been treating the weekends as if they don't count--not tracking food, eating anything I want, basically back to old behavior. So, I've concluded that what I need to do is be held accountable for my weekends, so I've decided to do two weigh ins per week. I'll be sticking with my regular Thursday weigh in (because my surgery was on a Thursday), but for added accountability, I'll be weighing in and posting on Mondays as well. I have this fear of letting you all down if I post a gain in weight, so I really feel like having the extra Monday weigh in will increase my fear, thus helping me to be more well behaved. In addition to the Monday posts, I am making a commitment to track my food every day for the next two months (just for starters). I'm not going to post that on here because frankly, I don't know how to do that with Excel, which is where I track. I just wanted to put that in writing in blog land because now I'm going to be accountable to 74 other people for that, too.

Anyhow, the scale this morning did not show my new low that I discussed in an earlier post. But, there was a loss of .4 pounds from last week, which is ok I guess. Today's number was 219.5. Glad to still be out of the 220s, but I really would like to be down a bit more. Hopefully by next week's appointment with the PA I'll be comfortably out of the 220s. Like, 216-217ish? That'd be nice. I'm kind of hoping for a fill when I go in for my appointment, but she didn't give me one last time and she only gave me .3cc the time before that. Sounds a bit like Ronnie's surgeon. But really, only 2.3 ccs in a 10 or 11 cc band? (sue me, I don't remember which. It's written down somewhere!) Hopefully I'll be able to get just a squirt more in there, and I think that would really be beneficial because I've been pretty hungry as of late. Enough about that though, I'll let you all know next Thursday how that turns out.

I just want to thank everyone so much for commenting on the progress pics. Your comments are so important to me and I love it. Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone from the bottom of my heart!

Better be off to class now. Hope everyone has a great day. Oh! Guess who got a new (used) washer and dryer!!! Thank you, craigslist :)

Dang! I just saw the progress pics. What kind of exercise are you doing to get the muscles in your arms? I am so jealous. Way to go!

Sounds like a good plan sometimes it's important to change up what you are doing and this looks good busy girl!

I have heck on the weekends too! Moved my weigh in to Monday! Just to keep myself more accountable! Good luck girl!

I hate these surgeons that are TOO cautious. We got this tool for a REASON. Ask for a full 1 cc!
