OK, I gotta tell you I had to move on from my last post, that picture is still freaking me out and just makes me think of my dream.. .so it's on to kick back Saturday... It's my favorite day of the week..
A warm welcome to my new followers... and to my faithful band buds.. thanks so much for your comments and help with dream interpretation.. yeah.. I am a bit frustrated and anxious and (well probably nuts) but we won't go there.. about my upcoming fill. I almost want to do it myself.
I did have a unique thought about the band though... Remember when you were first banded.. that first week. boy everything (hurt) but the band also felt tight.. that was probably because between the surgery and having this band around your stomach it caused the swelling which gave you that wonderful restriction and boy did we have a nice drop in weight.. well.. that's what I imagine the sweet spot is like.. that glorious point where you can eat that small bit, and not go into grazing mode 2 hours later.. [oh please tell me that is what it is like}
So, I wanted to just update my progress.. the scale is moving down.. but its so freakin slow.. it's driving me nuts. I am tracking my food intake and am pretty much staying within 1000 to 1200 calories.. my fat grams are coming in around 35g. I probably need to get that down a bit. And I did celebrate with a clementine.
I have been doing a new form of exercise I call virtual exercise (this is where I expend energy and cheer via watching the Olympics)..
Let's see... I did a couple slalom runs, a few half pipes and a good dose of woman's skeleton.. So I am beat.. I wish they could invent something that transfers calorie burns as you watch people do physical activity.. that would be a dream come true.
The cool beans is in my post because DH and I are going to spend some time at our local coffee house this afternoon.. and chill.
Have a great weekend.. enjoy.. cause on Monday... guess what we are getting SNOW!!!!!
