I Have A Confession To Make :(

Hey Ya'll,

I am really unhappy and upset with myself.  But I am getting back on track now and Walt told me I should fess up and admit my back slide!  I am not proud of myself and because of this, I have been embarrassed to admit my downfall to you guys!

So here it is.  I have been eating whatever I wanted, which is ok since I am not on a "diet".  But...I have been eating much more than I should, and I had gained back up to 200.8 in the past 2 months!!  :(

But I am getting myself back on track, and so far I have lost back down to 197.2!!  I guess the super hard weekend I had getting my Motorcycle Training helped.  The first thing we had to do in the class, was to prove that we could maneuver the bike around without the power of the engine.  We had to prove that we could completely turn the bike around without power....over and over and over!!  My arms and legs are...can you say, sore?  

Of course, I still need to lose another 6 lbs (eek!), to make my all time low (191.2) since starting this LB story!  I have my next Fill appointment this Friday the 16th and it will be Fill #5.  I am currently at 5.6 cc's in a 10 cc Band.

So go ahead and let me have it, I deserve it!

These are some photos of my latest Afghan that I made for our daughter Kat.  I always let the recipient chose the pattern and colors, especially when they pay for the materials!!!  It measures 7' x 5'6".



























Here I am showing it next to my cell phone that measures 4 3/8" x 2 1/4".












Till next time...

Aloha My Friends  :)

We all have our bad moments. Don't be too hard on yourself. :-)

Thanks guys, I really hope so!

Thanks Tina, I appreciate your approval of the Afghan since I know that you knit!

Debi, I gained 6.4 lbs between fills 3 & 4, so don't beat yourself up. As my PA very wisely told me, until you hit real restriction, weight loss is hard to sustain. If it weren't, we never would have opted for lap-band surgery! I hope this fill brings you to your sweet spot, and if it does, the weight will start melting right off!

Thats the great thing about having the band...you can get back on track and back loosing again no problem. good luck...you will loose those few extra pounds no problem and continue on down :-)

Debi - you are back on track now. Don't beat yourself up - it happens to all of us :) Love the afghan - just beautiful!

Debi said...

Thanks everyone! I know what I need to do, it is just hard to buckle back down when I have no restriction and hungry!

Amy, I certainly hope that this fill is "the one"!

Carla, thank you for the encouragement! I need all the help I can get.

Dawn, thanks, you have always been here for me. Thank you for your comment on my latest Afghan! Kat loves it.

Debi, you're sharing this with all of us and you're already moving in the right direction. You can do this and I'm sure the upcoming fill will be helpful too.

Thanks Amy, I need all the encouragement and support I can get as it really is hard for me right now!!
