The big 4-0

No, I didn't turn 40 years old.  I haven't even hit 30 yet, so don't get ahead of yourself.  :)

This morning when I got on the scale I had lost a little over a pound overnight.  My official weight is 257 lbs. which means I've officially lost 40 lbs.!

I was starting to get worried that my body was holding onto all its extra calories once I started working out this past week.  But it seems as though all is right in the world and I will continue to lose weight as I increase my physical activity.  I'm really enjoying my gym time and seeing results from my hard work is such a motivation to keep working harder and to push myself more!

I'm still feeling pretty good restriction from my tiny fill a couple weeks ago.  I'm finally being "punnished" for taking too big of bites and not chewing well enough.  No PBing, but quite a few good stuck/sliming episodes.  Before, it would happen with only the typical "bad band" food like soft breads.  But now its with pretty much anything that I don't chew properly.  Its a good reminder to me to slow.the.hell.down when I eat.  I think maybe one more small fill at the end of the month might put me right about where I want to be.  But we'll see how these next couple of weeks go. 

So far so good.


  1. Congrats!! 40 pounds in like 3 months is something to be super proud of!!

    You live too close for us not to get together at some point!! These days socializing is weird because I can't eat much and I am desperately trying not to drink because it's total self-sabotage on the scale BUT it has to be better with a fellow bandster!
