I am getting a fill!!!

Thank you guys for your advice to call to get my first fill moved up. I just got off the phone and my appointment is on Tuesday! I am absolutely giddy :0)

I will keep you posted. Keep on keeping on everyone.

Ta Ta

Happy Friday

Hey everybody! I missed you :0)
I really new to work in some time for my blog. I have found blogging (reading and posting) to be therapeutic for many of us. I also know it helps keep me accountable. Last time I blogged I wrote about my struggles as a new bandster. Guess what, I am still struggling and am holding at 224.

I am not going to sweat it though. This is a process and I am going to get through it. I really feel like I am dieting right now. I can definitely eat more than 1 cup, but I try very hard not to. I usually stay within 1100-1200 calories a day, but I have found that carbs are the enemy 👿

Carbs are the cause of my weekend gains and during the week when I usually have very little carbs, I drop the weight quickly. I am so tired of this back and forth.

My first fill is not until July 3rd. That is 8 weeks after surgery! I want to call and see if it can be pushed up, but I don't want to sound desperate 😣 because I AM! Remember I just said I wasn't going to sweat it? I lied.

I have been exercising at least 4 times a week. It is usually a cardio workout and when I started I could barely get through, but now I feel much stronger. I still haven't been bitten by the exercise love bug, but I do it cuz I have to. Speaking of exercise, I have an NSV to report. I am able to fit into a sports bra that had been so small I couldn't get it on. I am not large chested but I have quite a wide back. I guess it's the little things that keep us going.

Puh-Leez send me some happy skinny thoughts. Have a great weekend everyone.

You Better Work.........

Hello All,
I know it has been a while, but remember last time I posted and I was all perfect perfect? Well, that has all gone to (bandster) hell in a handbasket.

I have been STRUGGLING!!!!!!

Ever since I could move onto soft foods and beyond I have been up and down. I do pretty well until I get to the weekend. Just call me Elsie, cuz this heifer will graze all day. The weekend of Memorial day I gained six pounds. I was able to lose it by the end of the week, but then the vicious cycle started all over again and I gained 8 pounds the following weekend.

I am ashamed.

This past weekend I got back on track and even started exercising. Guess what? I saw a new low.....221!!!!!! I am so excited to be back on track. I keep thinking of how much I could have lost had I been diligent, but no one is perfect. I just have to keep on fighting the good fight. Please wish me luck.

The new job is going well, however, I am no longer able to keep up with blogging while at work :o(
Your lives have been busy! I am trying to keep up with you, but I have not been commenting much. I am still a few days behind.

I went to my WLS support group tonight and was hoping to see Robyn, Meghan, and the ever elusive Cat. Oh well, maybe next time ladies :o) I talked to a lady considering the band and it was weird being on the other side. I also got a smidge jealous of the bypass people...... 84 pounds since March? Jesus, Mary and Joseph!!!!!!!!! I know I made the right choice for myself, but those numbers are unbelievable.

I have set a mini goal for myself. I want to be in onderland by my birthday on July 31st. That is 21 pounds in 7 weeks, or 3 pounds a week. It is doable, but I am going to have to work it harder than RuPaul.

I have also been thinking about sending my husband to his HS reunion on his own. I think we need a breather. I haven't talked to him about it yet, but I think we need a weekend free of each other. We've been snippy with each other and I need to miss him again.... does that make sense? He used to work overnights for his job, and that time apart worked wonders. I will keep you posted on what we do. The reunion is at the end of the month.
