I’m Back!

Happy 2011….this is the first time I have gone to the web this month to think about my journey, weight loss, my band….

Needless to say I have work to do, but rather than throw in the towel like I have in the past, I can say the past is behind me, and I need to focus on bringing weight loss back into the forefront.  Eliminating junk, eating clean, and envisioning my long term success.

I looked in on a few blogs I was following in 2010, and I’ve been thrilled to see the progress that my fellow bandsters have made.  kudos to you! My weight loss has been slow, but I’m OK with that.

I’ve started working out again, so this is a big win for me in 2010.  Both circuit training and Zumba….shaking my bootie…off, off, off!

My closet…oh, my closet.  On the weekend, I cleaned house.  I wish I had a home to send my clothes to.  Just glad to be in smaller sizes these days.  So, if there is anyone out there that could benefit from size 20, 22…letme know.

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!

Almost at -40lbs!

I can hardly wait to tell you I have reached 40 pounds down…..so if I write it here, maybe I’ll get there quicker 🙂  To be honest, I think I need a fill…and I need to stop snacks.  I went camping this weekend, and I am going camping next weekend for 1.5 weeks.  Once I am back in town I am going to get a little fill.   Funny thing to note however, it seems like “not good food” never gets stuck….grrrrrr!

So, keep me honest, and ask me how I am doing.  I hope to soon tell you I am 40 pounds down.  So, in 12 weeks I have lost about 24 pounds….on track.  While I know this is what I should expect, I still think it can come off quicker.  I bet when I look at the trend, it was more per week in the beginning and less per week now.  Another call out I need is guidance on a new scale.  What scale should I purchase?  I heard good things about Tanita, but which model?  My scale is from Target, and it is marketed as part of the “Biggest Loser” program.  the problem is that I can weigh myself 5 times and get 5 different readings.  I have tired resetting it, by adding more or less weight to it…but still..no consistency :(.

Help a sister out, tell me which scale you love (or at least love to hate).

Am I yellow or am I green…only time will tell

Today I went for my 2nd fill.  I met Jessie…and she said lets get aggressive.  I was at 5ccs, she took me to 6.5.  I’ve eaten lunch, and so far so good.  I’m guessing dinner and breakfast will tell.  I’ve heard that people feel most restriction in the morning.  For those of you out there, reading and checking in…how many cc’s were in your band when you hit the green zone? I have a 10cc band.

I’ll keep you posted on whether I move from yellow to green…but for now I think I am still in the yellow.
