Hoping to lose 2.5 lbs. by vacation July 24th

Monday, July 06, 2009

In the pre-lap band world, it would be a no brainer to lose 2.5 lbs. on Weight Watchers or TOPS -- in 18 days. Unfortunately, as my body adjusts (meaning frequently plateaus) with the unique characteristics of a lap band journey, I am not as hopeful. Still, it would be nice to a total of -40 lbs. before leaving for Disney World.

I know, I know, I need to get my butt onto the elliptical. Not sure what is my roadblock there. I am totally fine with the gastric band way of eating; I do not eat carbs, I do not eat sweets, I keep to my 3 protein based meals. It is just getting on that darn treadmill or elliptical.

yet I know that is my path to true lasting weightloss. And to getting the scale to move!

    Try something smaller if the treadmill and elliptical bother you. I have both in my house and I just couldn't get into them. Even if I had them in the same room as a TV or radio (which is actually recommended).

    So I decided to walk around the building at work. Once is 1/2 mile. I get 2 breaks a day and a lunch and for some reason I was taking these time to go rest in my car. Because I had the misconception that I was always tired. So one day I decided to go around the building and let me tell you it was very refreshing. I got an ipod so I could listen to my favorite music while walking. It really helps, now I am up to 4 times around the building which equals 2 miles. I now have a really rewarding feeling each day I do this. I no longer feel tired and in need of a nap

    So take it one step at a time. You just have to find what you like and work with it. You can do this ! ! !

    Take Care and God Bless ! ! !

    If you don;t like the elliptical find something else more motivating: walking with a friend, exercise show on tv, dancing, etc...

    Good luck.
