Last week sucked because I had to work so hard at losing the few pounds I had gained over the weekend. When I approached this week I was determined not to make the same mistake. By Monday morning I was down a pound so I did great over the weekend. This week has been an exhausting one. I have one more house to clean today which will make 8 for the week. Today's house is huge and it will take me 6-7 hours. I am shooting for 6 but its usually 7.
What I am totally learning from having the Band is that it is still really hard work. If you want an easy way to lose weight go for the bypass. I still have to pick my food very carefully, eat slow (still a problem) and only serve myself a small portion (yes, I can eat alot). I know the band is there and working cause i have had a few stuck moments that are very uncomfortable. It happened when I ate something too fast or didnt chew well enough.
But I have to say that the thing that has helped me the most this week is not snacking in between meals. So simple but so profound! I am down 5.5 pounds this week. Yes, it is true lol but i have to say that it has taken soooo much willpower. Like last night I made chili size (hamburgers open faced with chili on top) but no I did not have that. I just had a small bowl of chili. For lunch i had a smart ones meal and breakfast was some steel cut oatmeal. Oh and I did have a banana in between breakfast and lunch.
So as of today I am down 49.5 pounds! UUUHHHHMAZING. I wish it was .5 more so I could shout 50 down 50 down! but i will wait lol
Have a fabulous weekend friends!
