So I weighed in this past Friday, on my birthday and I'm down 1 lb. That is the type of stuff that gets me worried and well, it lets me know I'm not doing something right.
But then again, I lost 3.4 lbs right after Thanksgiving and my period coming (figures). So I guess its okay because in the end, a loss is a loss right?
And I have to remember... since I'm now at 209 lbs, I am actually 2 pounds away from the lowest low I had with the lap band three years ago. And that was struggle then to get to 207 lbs. So I have to keep my head up and going. I'm really trying NOT to be scale obsessed but its hard. I think its hard this time around than before. I also know that I have this goal of getting not only under 200 but to 195 by the time I see my doc. He's pretty aggressive in the weight loss thing, but I'm glad - someone is keeping me accountable.
I am currently eating pureed and soft foods. And for my birthday last Friday, my best friend and some co-workers bought me a Magic Bullet. I'm excited to try it out, so I bought me some food to try it with. Tonight, I had egg salad..... it was so yummy! I probably ate like 3 oz. I was so full. Its crazy to say I was so full with that amount of food. I always wanted that feeling of satiety with the lap band and to actually get it with this, its crazy and still hard to believe.
I do have to say... the grocery bill is a lot cheaper here. Lol. I do feel bad for the kiddos because I haven't been cooking much, nor has my husband. He also got his sleeve surgery this past Tuesday. So we're doing this together, how awesome is that?
I also went and had a massage for my birthday.... 110 minutes with hot stones. It was so good and the therapist was not my usual, but she was awesome.
Thats another thing..... I just turned 34 and maybe its more from surgery, but since surgery... I feel so emotional. Like wanting to cry a lot. I don't know why. This is really out of character for me. I mean, like getting the Magic Bullet for my birthday... I started crying out of the thoughtfulness, thats NOT how I was before. Lol.
