what choo talkin' 'bout, Willis?
down about 3lbs from last week. new lowest low!
First, I must admit that I am no longer sugar-free. My FIL was in town this weekend & we went out for a nice dinner last night. We split a dessert - my first chocolate. mmmmm. Didn't quite last the month - made it about 10days. I don't object to eating chocolate - I just objected when it started feeling out of control. If I start feeling like that again, I'm confident I can come back to this strategy to help get me back in balance. It's all about moderation. Plus, I think I need to add back in some sweets to get my calories up....
I had my one-year appt with my bariatric surgeon last week. It went great! He was so complimentary & proud of me. :) He said a lot of interesting things at the meeting....
- he said the most important day is not the day we get the band but the day we DECIDE to make a change. it really is mental game.
-he said that the band should not be doing most of the work. He said in successful patients, the band gets a B- grade while the exercise & food choices should be an A.
- he said that I am done & I should not lost any more weight. He said that my range should be 145-155lbs.....I could even go up to 160lbs & that I should never be below 145lbs. wha'???!
-lastly, he said that if I'm below 155lbs then I should not have a single weight-related thought or concern in my head. what am I going to fill my head with now?
WHAT CHOO TALKIN' 'BOUT, WILLIS????? really, these last two bits are going to take me a while to digest. even longer to accept.
and then after telling me to stop losing he gave me .25cc fill. a little confusing but I'll go with it.....
