Since I missed the weekly Pete thread I thought I'd update you. He's fluctuating between being happy with how the band is and thinking that it needs tightening. Last weekend we went to a restaurant and split a meal because neither of us needs to eat a whole meal. Halfway through Pete's meal he felt a little full. He took another couple of bites to see what would happen. Sure enough he was overfull and in agony. He's figured out that there is a little spasming of the esophagus when he is getting full and he needs to listen to that.
Today he announced that he was 4 pounds up. He's is upset and tends to think in the here and now instead of the overall picture. So he has plans to exercise a lot and measure his food for the next week and see what happens.
Me? I lifted weights yesterday because I didn't get to it earlier in the week. Today it hurt to put my deodorant on because my pec muscles were sore. Too funny. I tried to jog today at the gym and it just wasn't happening after my weights yesterday. My legs were tired. So I walked and kept my heart rate in the fat burn zone for the 45 minutes.
As for food, I purchased $60 in fruit & veggies at Costco yesterday. No chocolate, crap or snacks. My plan is to keep eating fresh, clean foods as much as possible and keep doing what I'm doing.
