Isn't that what they say when football players make a field goal??
Well I made my first mini goal! I am officially 25 pounds down! That fill last week is doing it's job. 5 pounds down in a week....SUH-WEEEET!!!!!!
I also loosened back up over the weekend. Friday was still a little tight and I stuck to mushies. Saturday regular food was okay and has been since.
I think I might still be eating a bit more than I should, but I am definitely eating much less than I was before the fill. I'm kind of amazed at how little I can eat (compared to what I was eating before) and feel full. For example, on Friday when I was doing the mushies, a value menu cup of chili from Wendy's was almost too much. Tonight, I had a few bites of pizza topping, two wings, and a couple bites of salad did it. Pre-band, that never would have cut it. It would have been at least 2 pieces of pizza, half an order of wings, and a full plate of salad.
I really need to find some protein shakes around here that I like. They don't carry Amplify and I'm not sure I want to buy it online. But to get my protein in, I'm going to need to start drinking one in the mornings...I'm too tight to really eat anything until 10:30 or so and I don't have the time to eat then. Lunch is at noon and I've been taking a yogurt and string cheese.
The other thing I need to work on is water intake. Really need to boost that. That may be my morning meal....after my coffee to get in 20 oz of water before lunch and another 20 oz after. I know that's still short of the recommended 64 but I'll work on getting another 20 oz between getting off work and going to bed.
I also have a mini goal of reaching a solid size 14 before December. I'm a size 16 now, so I think it's totally doable. I'd also like for these size L scrubs pants to be a little looser in the butt and thighs and the scrub top to be looser around my upper arms. Hopefully my "Jiggle Free Arms" and "Jiggle Free Buns" will help with those goals!
