LilySlim - Weight loss

Monday, October 18, 2010

Finally!

It has taken forever, but the scale finally moved. My husband let me have the scale back and I think I'll give it back to him today. I think it is much more reasonable for me to weigh once a week rather than every time I walk into the bathroom! This fill has definitely made a difference. I'm still super tight and yesterday had one of the worse days I've had since being banded. I couldn't eat anything and threw up several times. I'm better today though. I think that my cold really does have a lot to do with my level of tightness. I would like to be a little less tight, as I make better food choices, and get my protein in when I'm not so tight. However, I'm glad to finally report a loss. My average is low, I'm at 6.15 pounds per month, but I'm glad that the scale is indeed going down.

I hope all of you had a great weekend, I did, but it was way too action packed, not much in the line of rest going on. Have a great Monday! And thanks for being such a great source of support for me!
Big Hugs!

Yaaaaay!! Congratulations. I think you should let him keep it until next week. It's working for you. I hope you have a better day w/ the tightness issue. Be sure and stay hydrated! For some reason, when I'm dehydrated, my band is tighter...go figure.

Congratulations! I've got a friend that gets on to me about my scale addiction. Like you I weigh several times a day. She says put it under your bed and only get it out 1 day a week. If only I could get it under there....... :)
