Even nearly a year after I have been banded, I still find that my band can get very tempremental... Tonight I ordered Wonton Noodle soup. The portion size was laughable... I wasn't even going to get through a quarter of that!! So I dished myself a couple of wontons, a small amount of noodles and some soup. Wasn't even going to attemp the veges... Two bites of a wonton later and I'm in the loo spewing my guts up... I try again... another two bites and the toilet is my best friend again... so no dinner for me tonight!! Yet for lunch I had a rice paper roll (you know, the roll with vermecelli noodles and veges) with no problems...
Anyhoo... just wanted to give a big shout out to those of you who brought me to my senses with your comments about my rant about not moving on the scales. Brent - you are SO right... every time I look on those scales I should focus on what I have achieved so far... and not what I haven't achieved. However, I don't want to rest on my laurels! and while every time I step on the scales I do a little dance cos I'm in the 90's, not in triple figures and definitely not at my highest weight, I know that I've got at least 20kg to go!!
I've realised that I haven't moved in wieght for 3 months (with Christmas and New Years in between as well as a few overseas trips for work). And While I'm not making excuses for not losing weight, I have realised that I've been able step up the exercise and I feel smaller, even though the weight hasn't budged.. I feel a little less wobbly... There's less of me bouncing about when I go walking. I'm even adding some jogging to the mix... which is completely unheard of.. I walked/jogged nearly 8km yesterday.. and I felt fantastic...
I'm figuring that my body is catching up to the weight loss I had in September and October.. I know the plateau will pass.. I just have to get through it!!
Thanks for reading! Thanks even more for your comments!!!
P.S. I haven't weighed myself since Monday... that is like a total record for me... I'm dying to know what my weight is, but I'm not going to weigh until saturday (official weigh in!)
