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.
