Yesterday was my 7th Anniversary - 1.5 lbs
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
So I really had a great day yesterday - it was my seventh wedding anniversary (to an awesome wonderful husband) AND when I got on the scale it finally moved, so now I have lost 26 lbs. with my lap band.
I go for my first fill on Thursday, so it will be easier to fight the hungries between meals.
We went out to a local restaurant that serves both steak and seafood with a great fresh salad bar (lots of protein choices e.g. edamame, chick peas, grated cheese) and I ordered a tilapia entree (because it was buy one, get one free!) Otherwise I would have gotten an appetiser instead. My salad bar trip resulted in about 3/4 cup of food, and my tilapia was likely 3 ounces maybe a bit more. I had them prepare it dry, with no oils or fats. And I was satisfied.
I surprised the heck out of my husband. We were sitting watching t.v. around 8 p.m. (he had a baseball game on so I was bored!) when I went into the bedroom and came out with my workout clothes and sneakers on. We have a Precor elliptical in our living room, facing the t.v.....I said I was going to work out. He was amazed, that I would voluntarily get on the elliptical without him prompting me to do so. Since we've had it (about a year) I've maybe used the elliptical about 20 times, that's it. Anyhow, I had a great workout (20 minutes) and burned 155 calories. I am not going to go longer until the doctor gives me clearance. I suspect I am doing the elliptical a wee bit too soon -- but I felt fine. I will double check with surgeon on Thursday. Next step is to add in weight training.
