Hey there! How are you? I hope all is well. Things are okay here.
Thank you for your sweet words on my last post. I really do appreciate the comments and the sentiment behind them.
Okay, so as I said in my last post, I really want to lose 25 pounds before my 50th birthday, that's in 4 months. I bought some Visalus shakes and started yesterday. A shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch and a sensible dinner. First of all, they taste really good, but yesterday was awful, I was starving most of the day, and I had a terrible headache. I got home and stir fried green beans, chicken and mushrooms for my "sensible dinner."
One of my problems with the band is that when I get past hungry...you know, to the point where I'm feeling sick from it, it never goes well when I do eat. I only ate a fourth of a cup of food, and didn't feel stuck at all, then suddenly, I was hurting, I PB'd bad, like 30 minutes before all was said and done. Not the way I wanted to end the night. So, I ended up having a 3rd shake for supper last night.
Today, I've had my two shakes and a hand full of almonds. Again, I'm starving! I always do a shake for breakfast anyway, because I'm super tight in the mornings, but by lunch I can usually eat pretty well. Lunch is not the time of day that's really a problem for me. So, maybe I should reassess this and eat my lunch instead of drinking it. I know I've only given it 2 days, but man...my head hurts again, and I'm afraid I might have another repeat of last night. I really need to be careful with my food choices tonight and take it slow. I'm going to have a little wine tonight too, that always helps with the passage of food, lol!
Other than that, things are going pretty well. It's deer season, so my hubby will be MIA soon. He works hard, so I'm glad he has something that's relaxing for him. Oh...big news, I forgot to share, he quit chewing tobacco. I'm so proud of him, I know it was so hard.
I'm glad it's Wednesday and the week is half over. I'm ready for the weekend, I'm ready to just relax.
I hope you all have a great day.
