Back in the saddle AGAIN!! - geez

Feb 11, 2009

It's been almost a year since I've written anything!  Where am I today? No where.  Why? Because I haven't followed ANY of the band rules. Do I have restriction? Yes.  Do I drink before and after a meal? Yes. Do I exercise? Barely.

Well, today all that is changing (well actually tomorrow since it's already 8:15pm here in Virginia).  I will be posting daily with my food consumption and exercise. I will not drink 1/2 hour before a meal or 1/2 hour after a meal. I will consume 1 cup of food. I will eat my protein first and then my veggies. I will let you know when I haven't lived up to my end of the bargain. I'm sure I'll have my set backs, but I've got to keep moving toward my goal. My goal for 12 March is to be 10lbs lighter. Just 10lbs.

Today I am 251lbs. On surgery day, 20 March 2007, I was 270lbs. I'm ashamed to write that, but it's out there now. I have no excuses. I've let life get in my way and haven't taken care of me. I have all the tools I need. I have the lapband, I have a gym membership. The gym is across the street from my house and open 24 hrs.  I'm single and my children are grown.  I come home from work and say "I'm too tired to go to the gym."  Well, no more!  I'm declaring war on my fat!!

So here's the exercise plan...I do aerobics Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Either a class, treadmill or elliptical trainer. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday is weight training. Sunday I will walk outside for 1/2 hour.  I will make my meals, measure them out and take them to work. I've got to do this. I WILL STOP EATING WHEN I AM FULL. I WILL NOT EAT IF I'M NOT HUNGRY. Head hunger has been a challenge in the past, but I've got to find a way to conquer it.  So please check back every day to see how I'm doing and what's going on in my life. I will write about other things besides my weight loss.

I'm working on becoming a Doula and I'm sitting for my Certified Professional Secretary test in April. More about all that later.  I'm going to the gym tonight to get my aerobic workout in. I can start that today.

Until tomorrow.......

11:35pm - I'm back from the gym. I walked/ran for 1.75 miles. It took me 32 and some odd minutes. Tomorrow I will post my before pic.

A shower and then bed.  Goodnight
