How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Better day, in spite of the numbers

Hello friends! I've been in a workshop all day which is why I'm only just now getting my info posted from yesterday. It was a super fun workshop though - for any web geeks out there it was about User Experience and how to create a website that customers will shop.

Anyhoo, I digress ...

Today's weight did not make any sense! It said 186.6. That is, it didn't make any sense until I started counting and realized that TOM is headed my way. (Warning: possible TMI coming your way) I have a Mirena IUD so my TOM isn't the same now as it used to be. The outward aspects are very slight now - if at all some months, but apparently the internal things (i.e. hormones, bloat, mood) are still there, so sometimes I forget. All of that to say that hopefully this is the explanation I was begging for about the weirdness on the scale and also my 'Bummer of a birthmark, Hal' mood from yesterday!

And now, on to the other numbers!

Burned: 1993
Consumed: 1307
Deficit: 686
Steps: 2293
Activity: 63 minutes

I will admit that because of my weight yesterday (and also possibly my mood) that I didn't want to eat much. Hubby finally made me eat something for dinner so I didn't starve myself. Not that I was really at that much risk ;) but you know, trying to be responsible blah blah blah.

I'm feeling better about things today although I'm quite hungry at the moment. They provided lunch during my workshop but of course it was a sandwich .. which I can't really eat. They did have some salad so I had a bit of that and thankfully I had some greek yogurt and cottage cheese in the fridge upstairs. Otherwise I think my stomach grumbling would have disrupted our afternoon session! I will make sure to bring some band friendly stuff for me to eat tomorrow during our lunch break. OH! I am super proud of myself that I didn't have any cookies or chocolate during the entire workshop! The presenters brought all these different kinds of chocolate truffles and then from the lunch they had a whole plate of different kinds of cookies. I was successful in refraining, so yay for me!

Anyway, that's about all for now. I hope everyone is having a great day. And, for those who didn't get my reference earlier, here is the Far Side cartoon that I was referencing. Enjoy!
