5 weeks today

It's hard to believe that five weeks ago today this little plastic and silicone band was put inside of me. I thought I was going to be the only person in the world that hated it and wanted it out the next day lol. So, what have I been up to for the last five weeks?

I have lost 21.8 pounds bringing mento a new weight of 276.6! That number is still so big but it will come down.

My family and friends and coworkers are noticing. Another teacher said to me today, "I can really tell you're losing!". That makes me feel so good! My cousin noticed yesterday and if course gave me the 21 questions. But that's to be expected. My mom saw me today for the first time in a couple of weeks and could tell too!

I wore a pair of kakhis to work today that were snug in November and today they were falling off of me! That's a great feeling in itself.

I'm eating a little more and getting braver back into the food world. I went to outback this weekend and had Alice springs chicken. It was good to have dinner in a restaurant with "normal" people.

I'm doing Zumba and not getting tired as quickly!

I don't get tired as much at work. I have much more energy.

I'm just overall happier and can't wait to lose more! I'm down 21.8 pounds that unwound have never lost before on my own.

I've been taking pictures of myself every Monday from week one post op to now. I plan to do that every week until I get to goal. I want to put them on here but I'm nervous. Oh well I may anyway. I need some pics of me and my life on here. I'm posting from my iPhone so excuse any spelling errors. Whenever I get my laptop back I will post some pics! I hope y'all had a great Monday!
