Sugar Free Chocolate = Diarrhea

I’ve taken a likin’ to Russell Stover’s sugar-free chocolate – in particular Toffee Square, and Peppermint Patty’s.  Yum, they are my delicious….but too much of a bad thing.  If I eat 3 in total then I am fine, but if I move into the vicinity of 4…getting bad, and 5 is full on diarrhea.  So, how do I feel about this?  I seem to forget (wink wink read: don’t care) when eating these lovely little packages of heaven.  I sure pay for it when I’m running for the loo…but then the next morning, I’m no worse for the wear….and there is definitely no constipation.  Now I’m not suggesting you do this, but I can’t help myself.

Gotta run, if you know waht I mean 🙂

Your stomach the size of walnut, really????

I just re-read the blog posting by Lisetheloser, and she mentioned that your pouch when first created is the size of a walnut.  I read it without pausing, but then 10 hours later it hit me…THE SIZE OF A WALNUT?  Then how can I eat so much.  Man, I better scale way back.  So my question today is around portion size.  Would you say that you eat more than a walnut amount of food at one sitting.  My answer is DEFINITELY!  So, how much do you eat?  A protein the size of a deck or cards, plus a handful of veggies?

Hair by the handful!

I swear to you, I am loosing a massive amount of hair….how will I not end up bald?  I know this is common…but c’mon!!! Everyday it seems like I am loosing 1000 hairs.  Thank goodness I started out with thick hair.

What else is new, let me see…hhhhhhmmmmm. I went in for another fill. I think I am close to my sweet spot so we moved to 0.5cc incraments. I am not at 8ccs.  I can definitely tell a difference, and my portions are definitely smaller…so what I am saying is that I feel the full signals much earlier than I did before this fill.

I am down 45 lbs and on my path to 60lbs by Thanksgiving. My big addition at this point needs to be more fitness!  I emailed my trainer and told him I was getting ready to come back and see him….I just need to do it now.

that’s it for now, I am hoping to get caught up, read some blogs, and I hope that some of you read mine.

A peculiar thing happened to me…I went on vacation and lost weight!!!

A peculiar thing happened to me…I went on vacation and lost weight!!! Can you believe it.  Yes, the lapband works!  In fact I had told myself that it was OK if I maintained while on vacation, but happy to say that I lost.  Now that I am back from vacation and buckling down, I will be focusing on my next challenge.  60 pounds down by Thanksgiving!  Can I do it….in the words of Obama…Yes I can!

I’ve missed  checking in and seeing the comments that others have left.  I look forward once email is back under control to reach out to my friends with their blogs.

Talk with you tomorrow…my topic will be losing hair…yikes!
