Just because...

I don't really have anything to say today but I thought I would blog anyway. Very little has been happening this week.i have been pretty good with the eating, but although I haven't weighed at home,I did jump on the scales at work, and there wasn't any change, so my weigh in day is tomorrow-so just preparing myself...

It's funny,how you kinda get used to being at your new weight, and then you get anxious when you're not losing, that this is it.( I'm talking about me ,of course!)I feel like I've been plateuing lately,not sure if I really am,or I'm just not as focussed as I was.I know ,my gym work is going well and during the day I eat well, but the evenings are still a battle-I can't get over how snug my little band feels till about 5pm and then seems to loosen up -or is it just my resolve??!!

I am going to focus on all the positives so far,
1. Everything in my wardrobe fits-how easy is that,to get dressed in the am.
2. Going on a plane in 3 weeks-no worries about the seatbelt this time.
3. I feel good,energetic, skin is good if a little wrinkly in places-love that cos it means I'm losing!
4. Going down in measurements-will put them in at the end of this post.
5. Husband seems keener-or am I more receptive??!!
6. Grocery bill is down-Did I really eat an extra $60 fortnight of food?

  1. Your number 1 (everything fits and it's easy to get dressed in the morning and run) is something I fantasize about ... extra money is always good !

  2. Dani! You're doing so well! I've been a little bummed because I went from my too tight band and yacking everyday, to eating a little poorly, and boozing too much this week resulting in a gain. There's no mystery to me as why, except for why am I letting it happen. I'm proud of you. Your measurements are looking good too! Hot mama!

  3. You're doing great! I wouldn't worry about a plateau just yet.

  4. You're doing great! And I bet we all probably spent about $60 extra per week on our mindless eating before being banded! It's a scary thought!
