Weekly Weigh-In # 17, 18 and 19 / 4 Month Bandiversary

This week's weigh-in post is a little confusing.  It includes three weeks of numbers.  I weighed myself the day before I left on vacation.  I didn't have time to post about it and honestly I was a little disappointed because my weight had stayed the same from the week before.  So week #17 I weighed in at 216.8.  

Then I was on vacation for 10 days and waited to weigh until my normal weigh-in day (Friday).  I was honestly a little nervous about what my weight would be after being on vacation so long.  I would have been happy as long as I didn't gain weight.  But to my surprise I had lost 2.6 pounds in 2 weeks while being on vacation!!!  I was soooo thrilled with that!  That averages to 1.3 pounds per week.  I was just hoping not to gain, so losing that much made me so happy!  I didn't eat great while I was on vacation, but I didn't eat horribly either.  I stayed pretty active so I'm guessing that contributed to my weight loss.  Whatever it was, I'll take it!  

So with the weight I lost from this week that makes a total of 51.1 pounds lost!  I couldn't be happier with my progress so far and I'm going to keep working as hard as possible to get to my goal weight!  I bought myself a present for hitting my 50 pound goal so as soon as it comes in, I'll post about it.  My next goal is to get under 200 pounds before the end of the year.  I think it's completely achievable and I'm so excited to get to "onederland".  That gives me 12 weeks to lose 15 pounds.

Also, while I was gone on vacation I had my four month bandiversary.  I'm still so happy with my band and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!  

Here are the stats -

Bicep: -3.0
Forearm: -1.5
