So I got my fill yesterday....had to wait 2 1/2 hours because the doctor was behind.....yee gawds I hate waiting. While I was sitting in the waiting room I talked to a guy who had been banded since 2009 but was there because he had terrible acid reflux and was gaining weight. He had dropped from 450lbs to 280 but was up to 340. He said he didn't know why and if he had to have his band removed he would just die before replace it with another band....OMG really? He then said how he lives on an Indian Reservation and quality food is hard to come by(um...excuse) and that he had to eat everything with Mayo and Butter(umm...excuse) and that food on Indian Reservations is different than other places(umm..excuse) so I just did a lot of biting my tongue...and wondered should I have called him out? but I don't think he wanted to hear it. He said he goes thru a jar of mayo a week (OMG really) Then he says how he exercises all the time and nobody in his family is overweight(don't by that either).
So when do you be real and when should you keep your mouth shut? I guess I gave examples of what I do and what I ate and the tools I use but kind of just got tired of talking to him because he is not being real. You have to change what you eat. No it is not easy. Yes it probably takes more work than before. When you exercise you have to get your heart rate 70-80% of max heartrate to really get any significant calorie burn. I guess I felt he expected his band to do the work and that he did not have to... but it was kind of depressing to listen to him almost give up without really ever trying.
Doc gave me .5 after looking at how many calories I was eating and what I was eating. I hope its not to much but he really lectured me to eat slower and take smaller bites....and I am REALLY going to try to watch that.
Anyway today is Boobs Challenge weigh in
Last Week Weight 226
This Week 221
Total Weight loss 5lbs
HOLY CRAP PEOPLE!!! 5 Lbs yeah!!!!!
So my trend during this whole challenge has been I lose wieght every other week. My body seems to hold onto it for as long as possible and then dumps it. Every other weigh in has been a no show but then followed by a large number! I am so glad I didn't say WTF and binge or not work out....otherwise I would never have seen that 5 lbs and I love the way I feel. I love the way my clothes are loose. I love seeing my fingers and toes thin out. I love the energy I have (even though my muscles are tired). I LOVE THE WAY SKINNY IS FEELING.
