I just got back from vacation and I feel good. I ate well away from my controlled environment, even out at restaurants. I was self conscious about eating around people that I hadn't seen in a year ...

crysharris wrote It's been a rollercoaster... 1 month, 1 week ago

I haven't blogged here in a long time. Life has been hectic and stressful and I've been spending a lot less time online. Also, my weight loss progress has been so painfully slow that I am rather de...

Thanks for commenting. I've been trying IF as well some days....

crysharris wrote Nothing to report... 3 months ago

Things are going well. Weight loss is slow, and that's frustrating, but I feel good and I'm trusting the process.

I sent my mom my most recent before and after photo comparison. Her response was, "Great! This is really working for you! You're losing your boobs."

I've been snacking all day. At least it feels that way. Not even really hungry, just peckish and unsatisfied with my meals. It's frustrating and stressful because I'm calorie and macronutrient obsessed. I know it doesn't matter, ultimately, so long as

I am feeling simultaneously delighted and dismayed at having the cull my wardrobe to remove trousers that are too big. Yesterday morning, I put on a pair of slacks and my wife said, "uhh.. those ar...

I can see my collar bones. This may be the first time I've ever seen them rather than pressing down and feeling through flesh and fat. I was surprisingly fascinated and moved by this small but meaningful victory.

I mean, I knew, theoretically, that they were under there since my arms and shoulders move. I've pressed down in that area before, beneath the flesh and fat, and felt something hard in that general...

 So, of course I know stalls are normal, but that doesn't mean I wasn't dismayed when mine hit at 8 weeks. The first week, I just tried to ignore it. But the second week, I decided to look back on ...

crysharris wrote So snackish... 4 months, 3 weeks ago

I ain't even hungry but I've been snacking today. I can't toast nuts and keep them around the house anymore. The crunchy calls to me. I actually feel kind of yucky.

Yet another thing I didn't do, post LapBand, was take my measurements. I find it embarrassing and time consuming, especially since I don't want someone else to do it for me. In keeping with my genu...

 I've decided to take a break on attempting to construct balanced meals. I think that's contributing to my anxiety and stress. For the last few days, I've been choosing a protein that I want, eatin...

So, good news! I now weigh less than I did when I graduated from High School in 1989! Can you believe that? I barely can. I've been losing a steady 2lbs/week since my surgery on 11/20. Not as much as some fast losers, but it feels like nothing to sneez
