So I am in what you would call a plateau. Yes, I have been gaining and losing the same pound for the past 4 weeks. I go up to 198, then back to 197, and over and over again.
I stopped weighing myself a million times a day and only do it once in the morning.
This is the time if I was doing weight watchers I would just say forget it and go back to eating whatever I wanted because "no matter what I eat the scale doesn't move" Right, I mean how many times have we all said that.
Well this time I can't because I still have lots of restriction. And this really is my first plateau so I should be happy. I also keep hearing about people who have hit their 90 or 100 pounds right at about a year. I wanted to hit 75 this year and I think that is possible if I just keep doing what I am doing.
This past week my daughter had a birthday and you know you have to have cake. I had a few bites and man it was like someone pounded me in the chest. I mean it hurt. I waited a while then took another bite. I was determined to eat this cake. After 30 minutes I think i had eaten 5 bites and then threw the rest in the trash. I should have been elated that I threw cake in the trash, but instead I was heartbroken. Why because I couldn't finish the cake.
Since I am the one that normally eats all the sweets, the cake stayed in the house for almost a week. Over the course of the week I ate 4 slices. I don't think that is that bad. I mean yes I ate 4 slices over the course of the week, but compared to what I would normally eat 4 is like nothing. I guess cake is sort of like bread in how it is so painful to eat, which is a good thing.
I had some egg noodles with soy meatballs and let me tell you I really didn't love them. I know they are a lot better for you but not so good in the tast factor. Well after about 10 minutes of eating I could tell I ate too much. I had 4 meatballs and about 1/2 cup of noodles, and I was done. I ran in the bathroom and it wasn''t even like spit this time. It was just water. I mean not to be graphic, but i opened my mouth and water, not slime or spit, just came out. This continued for about 5 minutes and then I burped. And off I went to get my toes done.
It still is amazing that with all this restriction I am still stalling on the weight front. I know I need to exercise but man is it hot here! School starts back up in two weeks, I am going to need to carve out a time to exercise or else it will never get done.
I bought a pair of white pants from Kmart the other day. Size 18's becuase the thighs looked so small on the 16's. They need to get hemmed but I like them. I haven't worn white pants in I can't tell you how long. Now I just need some cute shoes.
I tried to find the clothing swap on Lap Band Talk and had no luck. If someone has the link can you link it?
I have size 22's, and I am looking for size 16's.
