1 year bandiversary:)
Yesterday was my my bandiversary. I wasn't even going to acknowledge it as for the last 6 months,I have lost nothing! But then I thought if it hadn't been for my band, I would not be 50 lbs lighter now, in fact I would probably be even heavier than my starting weight . So what has changed for me in the last year??-I now can go into most regular stores and buy clothes. I am more comfortable in myself. I can ride big hills on my bike-and have been known to wear lycra in public!! It is easier to get dressed in the morning-all my clothes in my closet fit.I am becoming more aware of my eating patterns- I can stop at one or two chocolates-only just. Today, I am going to start finishing the journey of my weightloss,I am finally realising that the band isn't going to do it all for me, and I just may have to use a little willpower as well.I have good restriction, I know all the rules, now I am going to put it all together.My schedule has been all over the place this week-had a child home with gastro for 4 days-not good for the exercise, but she 's back at school today,so game on. The weather is shit today-rainy and cold, so it's indoor exercise for me today. Now having said that ,I just looked outside and saw a window of opportunity, rain had stopped so off I went and abandoned my blog post and did a 90 minute bush walk.So go me!! Here is a photo of where I walked today.
