Let's start with a confession. I hit my lowest weight (220) back in March.
THEN I started the downward (or I guess upward) spiral. (Damn you, $0.25 bags of Cheetoh's in the vending machine!!!) and I gained. Little by little the scale climbed...and by the time school let out in June I was back up to 238!!!!
I knew I needed a fill, but I didn't want to go in to see Dr. Speigel until I'd lost some weight because I knew I'd be in big trouble!!!
Once school let out I knew it was time to pull up the bootstraps and get back on the BANDwagon. Make better food choices (no more Cheetoh's), QUIT MINDLESS GRAZING, and step up the exercise!! In the past 4 weeks I've re-lost 12 of the 18 pounds.
So, here is the moral of the story: If you eat like crap - band or no band - the scale is unforgiving. BUT you can always get "Back to Basics" (yay for the BOOBS challenge!!).
Yesterday the hubby brought home Taco Bell. (I know eating out is not the best choice...but you can still make decent choices.) He brought me a Mexican Pizza and Pintos-n-Cheese. I ate half the pizza and saved the pintos-n-cheese for lunch tomorrow.
So here I am...using my band as the tool that it is. Rocking and rolling along!!!
