It's Thursday and all is right with the world!

Hello. I hope all is right with you as well.  I have a lot to talk about.  I think I'll just use the trusty bullets:
  • I have indeed reaffirmed my vows and my feelings for my band.  I'm in love all over again.  My band is magically in perfect adjustment!  I haven't thrown up in more than a week.  I feel great, no pain when I eat.
  • I am fully aware that the fact that my band is being nice is due in great part to me being nice to it.  I have been listening to my body in a way that I had forgotten to before.  I have been following the rules.
  • My hubby is on his second week of the Paleo diet and he's rocking it.  He looks great, he feels great and he's completely dedicated to it.
  • I have been doing a modified version of the Paleo diet, (still including some dairy) and last night I had pita and kibbie.  I can say that I did not feel as well this morning as I have on the days after eating clean foods with no gluten.
  • I am going to slowly wean myself from dairy, it will be hard, but I think I can do it.
  • I've also decided to back of the wine for a while again.  On Friday night I had a vodka with club soda and that was tasty, plus I didn't over serve as easily as I would with the wine.
  • Today I am 6 months away from turning 50.  I feel more confident today that I will reach my goal before I turn 50 then I have since I got banded.
  • I have lost the weight I put on over Mother's Day. Today, I am 1 pound from my lowest post band weight.  That feels good.  I am 7 pounds from onederland....I want to get there this month.  Again, I feel confident that I can do it.
  • Emotionally I'm in a really good place right now.  I feel really good about myself.
  • I'm busy with rehearsals for the variety show I do each year.  I'm excited about that, but it's always hard to juggle family responsibilities with the show.
I guess that about covers it.  I hope you all have a great day and a great weekend.  I'm looking forward to some relaxation!

Big Hugs!

Great post. You sound happy. I'm glad you are listening to your body again. Learning what works.

Congrats to your hubs for doing Paleo.

You will get to onederland in no time! Happy to hear you are doing so much better and not feeling pain or being too tight now. I feel much better when I eat gluten free too, but that has been so hard to do this summer on my mini vacays.

lah lah lah lha >..I am covering my are so right but I don't want to hear it. be nice to my band you say? eat clean you say? go high protein and stop all of the gluten-y stuff? Wine? WHAT???.

OK..I know you are right...but can't a girl keep her head buried and her ever re-expanding arse in the air for a while longer? :)

Yeah for you! All good stuff! You are ALMOST to ONEderland...there's no stopping you now!
I completely get the "overpouring" with the wine..I have the same affliction..;-)....I also have a bad habit of "overpouring" with the margaritas too!
You mentioned club band rules do not allow carbonated drinks. However,I accidentally had a drink (Peach Mojito...yummy!) with club soda last week (my fav girly drink bartender said "let me make you a special summer drink!) and boy did I feel it! I could hardly drink the whole thing. So, it got me to thinking that MAYBE I should switch back to my beloved Gin and Tonics every once in awhile..I wouldn't be able down 3 of them! It would cut down on that morning after headache! LOL!

All sorts of fun news! I'm on modified paleo too because I didn't give up dairy at all. I figured I will deal with the flour and sugar first and worry about dairy later. One step at a time!! :) Glad to hear that you are feeling good!!

I'm doing something like paleo, too. This crap works! :)
