Weekly Weigh-In #4

This week I lost 3.2 pounds...woohoo!!!  That makes a total of 16.9lbs lost!  So excited about that!  I did work really hard this week and worked out several days in addition to being on soft foods for 3 days so I think that probably helped.  I don't feel that different after my fill, but that might change when I start eating solid foods.  So I will be careful and take all of your advice to chew, chew, chew.

My first goal was to lose 15 pounds and my reward was to get a Fitbit.  I decided to go ahead and buy it earlier this week because it was on sale and I was hoping that I would pass 15 pounds this week.  So this morning I weighed in and then when I went to get the mail, it was here!  Perfect timing and I didn't think it would come until next week.  So that's been fun to play with today and I'm really hoping that it will push me to exercise more and really be aware of how many calories I am burning.

So this week I have set two goals for myself.

  1. Track everything that I eat
  2. Drink at least 48 oz. of water
I kind of slacked off this week with tracking my food.  Mainly because I was eating the same thing almost every day.  But this is really important to me so I'm going to make myself do it.  Also, I know that 48 oz. of water might not seem like a lot, but I've been having trouble getting 32 oz. in.  So I think that this is a good goal for this week and then hopefully I can up it next week.

I think that's all I've got.  I'm posting my YouTube video for this week if anyone is interested in watching, but I pretty much said all the same stuff I just put in this blog.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Cool video...and congrats on the LOSS! :) How do you make your videos? I am jealous of your intro words...can you please share how you do that? thanks! :)

  2. Wanting to hear how you like your fitbit. I was just reviewing them this week! Let me know what you think!

    Way to go on the loss!! Feels good, doesn't it!

  3. Congrats on the loss!! That is awesome. I think tracking your food is great, especially if you start in the beginning it will become second nature. :)

  4. Andrea,
    I'm fascinated by the idea of a FitBit. I had never heard of one. I'm hoping you will blog more about what you think of it. I looked at their website and I'm thinking of putting it on my wishlist!

    It's great to hear of your weight loss too! I'm only two weeks out so my weight loss is still in the "unreal" category...

  5. Congratulations on the loss and getting more water in this week! I believe tracking my food makes me more aware of everything, mostly protein and calories, but even making sure I'm getting enough fiber and stuff like that. Keep working on it and it will become second nature.

  6. Congratulations on your loss!! And I love that you set weekly goals - attainable goals! We're all rooting for you!! Keep those v-logs coming!

  7. Way to go on meeting your goal!! I'll have to check out that fitbit thing. Looks neat.

    Keep up the good work!!

  8. I just bought one after reading you said they were on sale! I'm excited, I've had my eye on that thing forever! :)

  9. Great loss! I'm going to have to look up this fitbit thing...I'm seeing it in a lot of blogs.

    I think it's good to set reasonable goals, like the water. It's small changes like that that really add up.

  10. Good on you for your weight loss so far! I'm currently considering lap band surgery as well...just waiting to hear back from my surgeon. Anyway - an easy way to drink water is drinking it out of a bottle. Drinking water out of a glass just doesnt seem to work for me - so yeah just try using a water bottle :)
