Mad Monday Weigh in....

Today's weight....232.8! Down 1.2 lbs from last week!

So here are my totals:
42.0 lbs down since 8/22/12!
27.4 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
I was expecting a bit more but I will take this! I am retaining some serious water this morning though. My hands feel super tight. I think that was yesterday's fondue party and my lack of water intake. I am pounding the water this morning. I am at 48 oz so far today and hope to get at least 48 more oz down by bed time. Does anyone else retain water like this? I mean, if I do not get my full 64 oz. of water in during the day I feel super swollen the next day. Will this change as the weight comes off???

I can already tell the water intake is making a difference. I have been to the bathroom twice so far and the rings on my hands are spinning again.

I get my 3rd fill in 10 days and my 3 month bandiversary is next Tuesday the 15th. My goal?!?! It would be so great to weight in the high 220's by next week's doctors appointment. That will be officially 30lbs gone and will keep me averaging about 10 lbs a month!

I'll work hard this week and see if I can make that happen.

Hope everyone has a great Monday! I am cleaning again tonight.... Joy....


  1. WOOHOO! thats a great loss for the week. :)

    I do notice if I dont get my water in - that I too feel the puffies.

    1. Thanks! I really dislike the puffies. My scale does too! LOL.
