I like the weighted vest. I will probably add more weight this week. It does make the work out a little harder. I started with the recommended 4.5 lbs. If you're making one for yourself, I wouldn't put too much weight in it. Also, make sure you distribute the weight evenly so there isn't too much stress on one part of your body.

JulieNY: I'm at 179 now, getting closer to that 175 goal and a gift from NY. How are you coming with your short term goal and a gift from Utah?

Hi Everyone!!

Wow, great job you y'all!! Well, I'm still wearing mine everyday and I'm down a few more pounds. I love it! Not to mention that I have pretty good restriction right now. So, that's a huge plus! I'm definitly having to eat smaller portions now..and at a much slower rate than what I was doing.

I really have a goal to meet now. I'm taking a trip to Bora Bora/Tahiti with my Mother in November..and well, got to look decent in a swimsuit. So, I think the bodybugg/lapband is really going to help me get down. :) I love when there is a prize...seems so motivating. LOL!!

Keep up the good work!!

Charlotte

losingjusme: Thanks for the tip. The last few days I have managed to keep my calorie deficit, while attending wedding showers and other social events, but I've had to get on the treadmill at night to do it. You'd think I could pass up the brownie rather than walk some extra time, but oh well. I guess it's good to know and maybe I'll deal with the sugar issues sooner than later!

Losingjusme: Funks are hard. Sucess breeds sucess. I think that momenteum is everything. I know that platueaus just kill me. I get so discouraged. Hopefully with the BB plateaus can be eliminated or shortened. Everyone has a few bad days. Just starting doing what you need to, even though you don't want to and you'll feel better about yourself. It's guaranteed! Tell me a NSV! You'll feel better!

I need help understanding what is a calorie deficit and a calorie surplus. Today is my first bb day.

I have right now 1810 cals burned 1083 consumed and a deficit of 727.

I asked the personal trainer to explain that better and all he did was tell me to stay in 500 deficit 2550 consumed and 2050 burned.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Calories consumed = the energy you get from food

Calories burned = the energy you use to move around and to keep your body functioning

In order to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you consume, so you want a calorie deficit every day of X number of calories. A calorie deficit of about 500/day is considered a safe rate for weight loss. At that rate you should lose about a pound per week. A deficit of 1000/day should result in a loss of 2 pounds per week.

Is that more clear?

Oooh, Karey, have a great time in Vegas. Talk out loud to the food temptations if you have to ("listen, chocolate chip cookie, you want bad things for me and I'm strong enough to say phooey on you"). You might look nuts, but it can really help!

The "what" and "from where" of my surprise aren't so important to me -- just the anticipation! Come on, 3 lbs....

I did well with my bugg yesterday, both on cals burned and cals consumed. I've got an easy day today and tomorrow as well, so hopefully I'll drop a little in the next couple of days. I've got to say, I do love the bugg.

When I exercise in the morning, I'm hungry all day long, which implies to me that my metabolism is working faster on these days. Ditto with days where I eat Breakfast first thing, as opposed to waiting until 10 or 11 to have my first food. During my run this morning, I was thinking that we could probably test that theory (which is somewhat debated in nutrition circles, from my reading at least) using our BodyBuggs. Meaning, does a comparison of similar days where we exercise in the morning, as opposed to the evening, reveal that more overall calories are burned in that 24 hour period? Or is the difference negligeable? Likewise, comparing days where cals in are constant, do we truly burn more cals when we eat first thing, or is the difference negligeable?

I'd be interested to see what "stats" you guys have, if you feel like joining me in testing these theories!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
