Home again....

I took this picture on River Street at Savannah Sweets....seems like I took more pictures of food than I did of people. Hmmm.....I wonder what if that is significant?

I finally decided to order whatever I really wanted especially after I discovered that I would be eating it for at least 3 meals. That worked very well for me. I still feel stuffed and like I should never have to eat again.

I didn't lose any weight this week but I didn't gain any I'm okay with that!

Miss Emma arrives Tuesday evening so I'm sure my activity will increase with running after the divine Miss "Em".

Everybody's favorite lunch date.....

What a flurry of activity. I seem to be everyone's favorite lunch date this week. So far I've eaten out at four different places and it's just Monday. I'm sure this will play havoc with my diet. It's been good to see old friends and renew acquaintances. I just wish I could spread out this whirlwind of activity out a little better. I know there will be some long dry spells ahead.

Wish you were here to add to the fun . More later.

When food goes bad.....

It's been a while since I posted here but it has been an exciting week of self revelation . When I got back from my Mom's house I gained 3 pounds and of course I blamed the food, then I blamed the lap band, then I blamed the circumstances and emotional eating. I blamed the lap band website that helps you track your intake for being hard to use and then I blamed my knee for not full cooperating with my exercise routine. The only thing I didn't blame was my ability to push away from the table.

The Lord has been gently reminding me that all these excuses are just that excuses. So I've been making better choices and wouldn't you know it....the lap band website has been updated to make it much more user friendly. I can actually record what I'm eating and enter food that is not in the data base. It will be a great help next time I go for a doctor's visit since the dietitian and the doctor can pull up my stats and food journal.

The past week I lost the 3 I gained previously and 3 more besides! It's nice to see the scale moving in the right direction for a change. My first big land mark is to get below 250 and Lord willing that should happen this week! Today I packed up all my winter clothes and I'm going through my spring and summer one now. So far I've lost two dress sizes so the clothes I'm packing will not ever be coming back in the house again.

I've decided to get rid a lot of clothing that I'm not really in love with....I'd rather have fewer clothes that I really like than lots of clothes I'm not happy with.

Daisy Dilemma: Do you celebrate reaching a big number or every 10 pounds?
