OK-it's been awhile... So thanks for checking in on my lazy (i.e. unispired) blogging updates.
Good news: I have finally dropped a few lbs in the last two weeks after MONTHS of being stalled (total is 38-40 lbs). It has been uber cool to see a new numbers on my scale! Also my bp is now 115/77 and I have stopped taking ALL my meds!!! now THAT is progress....even if I do still have some chub to work on.
Dilemma: I've been putting off having another fill. Not sure if I need one since I mostly feel some restriction some of the time... I have lots of excuses such as paying off my medical bills-not adding to them-taking time off from work, etc. But here's the deal: I LIKE eating larger portions than I know I should. I don't want to give that up (damn that inner fat girl!). And I am fearful of not being able to eat solid foods at all... Which is making my inner fat girl run like hell now. But I also know that I bought this band in order to achieve my goals, and my weight loss has been slow (or stalled) for too long. I have even resorted to desperate dieting tactics over the last month which really sent me into a mental tail spin and left me so exhausted that now I am having a free for all with the pantry. So how do you KNOW when it's time for more restriction??? What is the magic feeling of hitting that sweet spot??? Do I get by with some restriction some of the time??? Or should I demand more of the band than my will power and desire would ask of me??? Advice, suggestions, personal testimony appreciated...
I am counting down the days til summer! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
