What a Week!!

Initial: 266
Last Week: 248.4
This Week: 247.4
Change: -1
Overall: -18.6

I'm gonna have to start weighing myself on Fridays now, because Thursdays are my longest day out of the week. Wake up at 6:30am, school until 11:45am, then work at 1:30pm until midnight. Then I have to wake up at 6:30am Friday morning for more class! It's nuts, but it's my norm.

So! I dropped a pound this week. That is actually a surprise. I was in my "mood" for the last couple of weeks, but I'm happy I'm finally coming out of it. My training session on Tuesday helped me realize that while my weight loss might not be coming around as fast as a lot of other people on the Band's weight loss, I'm still making progress.

Since I love numbers, here are some from my workout on Tuesday. First number was on 7/25, second number is today. Besides the mile, everything was done in 1 minute.

Mile: 18:30|17:24
Pushups: 17|35
Squats: 14|36
Lunges: 12|24
Crunches: 21|70 (nope, that's not a typo!

Today, I went to the gym for my training session at 3:00, but my trainer didn't show up. His phone isn't working either, so I couldn't call him. I waited for a bit, and then decided to just do a mile and split. My mile time today was 17:05, and I felt pretty good afterward. It didn't hurt as much as it did on Tuesday (my shins were killing me for the last two days after that), and I was walking and jogging on and off every 1.5 minutes. That's 30 seconds longer on my jogging pace. Yay!

Have I ever mentioned Starbucks makes the best iced tea? :D


So, I feel like my Band is a silly girl (yup, like most Bandsters, my Band has been deemed a female. :D). I read in Z's blog that she felt like she was sometimes in the yellow zone, and sometimes in the green zone. Yup, that's how I feel, too. Sometimes, I can just inhale all of my food, and want dessert afterwards. Other times, I take a couple of bites and then I'm done for a few hours. It's a little wonky, but I know there's definitely some restriction there. My next fill is scheduled for 9/10, so I hope I can discuss that with my doctor. I think I need a little more fluid put in the Band.

Also, my port is being a jerk. Do you guys remember how I said the PA had a lot of trouble getting the needle in for my last fill? She said it was flopping around and stuff. Honestly, I think it came loose or something. Sometimes, I can feel it perfectly fine when I press on my stomach. Other times, I can't find it no matter what I do. But almost all the time, if I bend a certain way, I have soreness in my port area. It's annoying, but as long as it doesn't jeopardize my  Band or my fills, then I won't worry too much about it. Do any of you have the same issue?

I'll end with a final little blurb: the number one reason I dislike going back to school every semester is because there are skinny bitches everywhere. Seriously, college kids are flippin' fit. And they wear their skimpy little clothes and look all pretty and I always get so jealous and can't wait for my opportunity to wear shorts like that. Yeah, I have envious thoughts like that. I've always wanted to be able to wear shorts in the summer and wear tank tops in public, and now that I have the Band, I can think "it's only a matter of time" instead of "I'll never be able to do that".

It's time for me to enjoy my weekend!


  1. Congrats on the 1 pound loss. Yay!! And poop on your trainer. What the? I would smack him in his face for ditching you. (not really... just saying)
