It's a sign...

I was all set for my fill today, despite the fact that the deep freeze that is gripping the east coast brought me restriction yesterday.

I was on the fence, since I finally had restriction, but it was too late to cancel my appointment without having to pay the no-show charge, so I decided I would go.

Then my surgeons office called to get me to reschedule because my surgeon had to do an emergency surgery.

I took that as a sign that I shouldn't get a fill right now... So I rescheduled for Friday, December 5. I just remembered that I have a conflict that day, also.

I'll get a fill eventually. Right now I'm going to work on doing this the old fashioned way, with hard work and exercise. And when I get a fill, great. Until then, I can at least TRY my hardest.

Bad blogger, bad bander

I'm bad. I'm not updating. I'm not following band rules.

I've gained about 15 lbs since my unfill, so I am getting a fill next week.

Work has been good. Life is good. I won a kindle fire HD today at a conference. I'm going to see my best friend for that thanksgiving in two weeks.

I've been eatting l carbs like there is no tomorrow. Bagels, rice, bread, pastries, chocolate. You name it, and ive been eatting it. Im done. Tomorrow I'm going to do my best to detox and get back on high protein and low carb. I'll be a bear, but it needs to be done.

Pray that I can get back on track.

Welcome back!

Over the past few days, restriction seems to be creeping back into my life.

I'm not complaining. I wanted it to happen. It's just odd that I went from wideopen to slowly increasing restriction. Food that I was able to eat with wild abandon isn't as appealing now. I'm not a bottomless pit (as much). I actually feel satisfied.

I'm not saying that I don't struggle during the day. I do. Mainly, I think it's withdrawal from the massive sugar that I was eating so I get the mid afternoon snackies. But I can drink SO MUCH WATER now. It's like I'm a desert that hasn't seen the rain in years.

I don't go back to the surgeon until 11/19, so I'll see where I'm at with weightloss and restriction when that day gets here.

Happy hump day!

Eat eat eat

You know how the cookie monster dumps cookies in his mouth? Yeah, that's been me.

Except I'm not eating cookies. It's been chocolate. Hershey's Special Dark chocolate, to be specific. And gingerbread bagels with peanut butter. And halloween candy. It's also been aunt flow visiting, which hasn't helped.

I forgot to weigh on Friday morning, so I weighed Friday before I left work and I was up 2lbs from the date of unfill.

I start my work weight-loss challenge on Monday. That should help keep me on track, since we are doing it through the holidays. There are only four of us doing it... We didn't invite anyone else... But still, having to weigh in front of other people should motivate me. Along with the fact that I want to fit into this new pair of jeans in time for my office holiday party on December 5.

On November 10, my gym starts a workout challenge. I signed up for that also. $15 to compete, and you get a T-shirt, and entered to win $200 just for working out 3x a week until December 21. I already plan to go 3x a week, so why not try to win some money? That would be awesome, BC I need to get tires on my car soon.  And maybe brakes. Either way, I could use the cash.
