8 pounds in 8 weeks

This is my very first blog post. I don't know if anyone will ever read this, but I'm going to use it as a motivational tool for the next two months. I realized today that I have exactly 8 weeks to go before I take a trip in July to see some work colleagues who I usually only see once a year. Last July I was pretty depressed about my weight and hadn't made the decision to be banded yet. I got banded in Sept. and am really happy with the results right now, 8 months later. I'm at 158 pounds right now, and would love to be in the 149s this summer.

So my goal is 1 pound per week for the next 8 weeks. I think that is doable for me. I'm going to use this blog to make myself accountable to my weekly goals.

Today my goal is to get 1 hour of exercise in today and eat less food for dinner than I did last night. I have gotten a little sloppy in the amount of food I've been putting on my plate. So I'm going back to eating out of a bowl, and having about a handful of protein and about a cup of veggies.

One small goal each day, I know that's all I need to do to stay on track.

Sherri,

Thanks for your comment. The band has been a great decision for me, I hope you are as happy as I am. It really helped me to read all the messages on the forum.
