This is how I feel right now! I have the Band, but since I really don't have any Restriction, I feel like I am constantly stretching, hoping to attain that ultimate goal of the Green Zone (perfect Restriction (if there is such a thing)).
Oh well, I know that I just need patience. With patience, comes eventual Restriction!! But I Want It Now!! Sorry, I will stop whining now. I just wish that they would have told us in our Pre-Op Classes that they forced us to take, that we would have such a long time with virtually no Restriction, & that we would have to rely on our own will power & determination to not gain back all the weight we lost on the Pre-Op Diet!! Of course I would STILL have gotten the Band, I just would have been a bit more prepared for this LONG wait!!
So yesterday my DH went to our friends house to have a few beers. So I decided to stay home & let him go have some boy talk. Anyway, he ended up staying for Dinner as well! Of course, he didn't bother to tell me until it was too late!! And, they had barbecued STEAK & CHICKEN!!! Now really, I am not complaining at all. Sometimes it is nice to have the house all to myself. But he didn't get home until about 10:30 pm! And of course, I didn't know that he had stayed for dinner until about 9 pm when I texted him to see what time he would be home. So I asked him to bring me home something to eat from Del Taco. I know, not the best food to eat on our diets, but I wanted something baddd, that wasn't on our diet.
So, you would think that this time alone would help me to get caught up on everyone's blogs. But unfortunately, I am not a fast reader. So I am still WAYYY behind in reading blogs. I am beginning to wonder if I will ever catch up!! Plus I had to read a couple of new blogs that I just started to follow. But I promise to eventually get caught up. But it seems that every time I get caught up, something happens that makes me get behind, then....I am forever catching up again!! This is my never ending cycle!
Before I end this post, for those of you who may still be reading this, I would like to suggest that you go check out Stephanie's blog, "Dreams Of Skinny High Heals", http://dreamsofskinnyhighheels.blogspot.com/. She is getting banded in about 6 weeks & could use all our support.
So, I guess I will get off for now. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Till next time.
Aloha My Friends!!
