How to lose 5 lbs in one week!!!

I often have to remind myself of things I already know. Like, the slower you lose weight, the greater the likelihood that you'll keep it off. Permanent weight loss sounds good to me! So, why the impatience with losing weight? Because I want it, and I want it now! Even if it's better the other way!?! Today, my weight is at 190.2- I am soooooooo close to the 180's, and have been wanting it for weeks. But, not so badly to knock my socks off for it. So, I'm losing weight slowly- which after already losing over 100 lbs, is really the better way to do this. It's sustainable weight loss. I can eat like a crazy, low calorie, perfect eater, no cheater, dieter (yes, I said dieter, because we all do it even with our bands) for only so long.

So, how do you lose 5 lbs in one week? Wait, do I truly want to lose 5 lbs in one week? 4? 3? 2? 1? Does it matter, as long as I'm losing? What will I look like in one year, if I eat exactly as I am currently eating? I will be a skinny bitch! At 1200-1800 calories a day, doing nothing else, I will most likely be a size 8, and weigh my goal weight of 150 lbs. That, I can do! The band makes it a more than reasonable expectation. I will be in the 180's this week, without a doubt. I feel there already. But, guess what? It's just a number! That's all it is. What I truly want is long term.

I got nothin...

Granola bars, yogurt, pepperjack, rice & beans... 700 cals, 25 grams protein. I'm thinking fish for dinner. Now, I'm thinking I better get back to work, Mondays are always busy...

  1. If you had posted this one year ago before your lapband, would you have believed you would be over 100 pounds lighter or would you still be wanting to lose just 0.3 pounds. You are doing terrific and you will get there. I can't see how you couldn't given your success in the last year.
