I weighed in at 236 this morning. That’s a 2 pound weight loss for the week with a total weight loss of 22 pounds after four weeks of my Optifast diet.
I am continuing with my daily treadmill routine. I’ve increased the speed to 3.2 MPH and added some incline. This week I am increasing the time to 35 minutes. It’s hard to get much more time in without changing my morning schedule. Since I carpool, I am leaving it at 35 minutes. I like the morning exercise and it fits well into my schedule.
Dietwise… I strayed this past week. Brett and I ate out Saturday night at Ruby Tuesday. I had the grilled chicken breast, steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes and green salad with low cal dressing. On Sunday we went to our friends Penny and Phil’s open house. I ate typical picnic food. I could have done better, but I just needed a breather from the diet. I am sure that it is one of the reasons that the weight didn’t move much this week.
Sunday just reinforced why I want this surgery. I tend to eat if food is around. I have no resistance. My success during the week shows that I can follow a diet. The lapband will help control my appetite and keep me on track. Just two more weeks to go.
