what choo talkin' 'bout, Willis?

today's weigh-in: 146.8lbs
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.....
