Bandsters to the rescue!!!!

Happy Monday everybody!!!!!
Thank you all for coming to the rescue last week as I struggled to adjust to this new lifestyle. I really appreciate it. You guys are the bestest.

I am back at work and feeling kinda good. Sitting in my chair is uncomfortable, but tolerable and I am getting in 50g of protein thanks to mdlapband's excellent suggestion of adding a scoop of powder to my ready made drink. I also handed in my notice. It felt relay really good :o)

What is not so good is my hair. This humidity made it IMPOSSIBLE to style my hair today. This is what I came to work looking like, and yes, I do have Eddie's eddie.

I will try to fix it before group tonight so I don't scare Cat and Robyn. I am not promising this ladies. I can only do so much :o)

I am looking forward to my bean gravy lunch. I know it does not sound appetizing, but Andrea suggested it and it is divine.

Have any of you found yourself clenching your teeth soon in your liquids phase. I don't know why I keep doing this and it is make my jaw sore.

I went to a cookout yesterday. One of my husband's friends invited us for Mother's day. There was so much food and it ALL looked amazing. I will not tempt you with the menu, but let me tell you that I held onto my protein shake for dear life as everyone around me stuffed their faces. I wasn't even hungry, but I do you remember the Super B0wl D0rit0s commercial where the guy licked the other guy's fingers? I was almost not above that. I begged hubs to take us home after 2 hours of enduring.

Oh, I almost forgot to add that I am down 10 pounds!!! It is very unreal. I can't see it, but I'll take it.


  1. Oh, I was miserable in the liquid stage. I didn't leave my house. No way could I have gone to a party where there was food. My first day of mushies I chewed a bite of toast and spit it out.
    I now it seem slike forever now but this first 6 weeks will be over befor eyou know it and it will be so worth it.

  2. I didn't leave my house during the liquids phase either. I was mad at others for being able to eat so I applaud your willpower! :)

  3. Congrats on each and every success- no matter how small they may seem!


  4. Well done you. Major NSV making it through that party.

  5. 10 pounds!!! WOO HOO!! Gone forever hot stuff!! :) Happy Momma's Day to you yesterday! This phase will be over in no time!!

  6. Wow congrads on 10 pounds. Happy Mothers Day too you!
    Well done my lady!
    Great blog and very inspirational

  7. Yay Reggie! So glad that helped! The liquid phase will soon be a distant memory... except for fill days.. but then it's actually a relief because it helps kickstart the weight loss again!

    I'm with everyone who posted above. My hub and I stayed far away from food/restaurants and parties for quite a while after. It was too tough mentally to deal with.

  8. Awesome news 10 lbs is great...I'll have to take a look at those surgery is right around the corner :D
