Today is my 26th week weigh in. I lost zero. The funny thing about this is that this week was my most stellar week since my first month post op. I ate perfectly on plan, exercised hardcore, and was on top of my water. And, I lost nothing. I am not really upset about it because I know my work will show up down the road and I feel really good about what I did. I plan on sticking to it and seeing a drop next week.
I also hit my 6 month post sleeve mark this week. I am pleased with my 62 lb loss and my 61% excess weight lost in the past 6 months (66% excess weight lost since being banded). I enjoy life so much more at this weight than I did when I was 259 lbs.. or even 200 lbs. Every 5 or ten lbs lost makes such a big difference on my ability to do things... walk longer, run faster, climb higher, and just feel better. I plan on hitting my short term goal of 160 lbs by my one year mark. That would mean that I need to average 4 lbs a month for the next 6 months. After I hit that goal I will revisit my long term final goal. I know I should shoot for a healthy bmi, but that would 145 and I just don't look healthy at that weight. Anyway, I will decide that later.
Have a good weekend all!
