Weight Ticker

Thursday, 5 August 2010

Keeping on track

Feeling pretty good today. I really can't get much down early in the day, which is fine, I'm not fighting it.  My weight is slowly dropping on the scales and that's a great reward. 

I'm happy eating really small portions and I'm listening to my appetite more which is what I was hoping to achieve and learning to take things much slower.  A very small amount on the fork and then chewing much more thoroughly than I was.

I'm also finding catching up on blogs of an evening is distracting me really well from any snacking or any feelings of dissatisfaction. I'm pretty hormonal at the moment so my state of mind leans toward the grumpy, argumentative, glass half empty at these times so the distraction is really really welcome.  Can't wait to get past it and move on.

Can I just add that the weather here is super-shitty and cold as hell and raining non-F***ing stop...it's July for goodness sake!!! Were's my frickin' sunshine a**hat???  Did I mention I was hormonal?

I'm currently locked out of CareBear Land for using bad language...


  1. Your band status reads just like mine.. in the AM I can only do a protein drink. by afternoon I can get a small meal in.. but sometimes by dinner.. forget it.. last nite we went for Chinese.. I had one stinking lo mein noodle and I was PB'ing.. what's witht that!.. many of us bandster are slow losers.. and I am ok with that as long as we continue to lose.. hang in there I think you are doing fine... PS.. I will take your cold weather because it is hot and steamy as hell here!!

  2. *LOL* I'm probably locked out of CareBear Land every day, then :)

    Keep it up--paying attention to my body and reading my hunger/satiety signals are still something I struggle with and I still have to actively pay attention to my bite sizes! I've been doing this for over a year now!

    Hang in there. Hormonal stuff sucks!

  3. CareBear Land SUCKS anyways! LOL!

    I, too, find that reading and commenting on the blogs keeps me from over eating!!! YAY!

  7. Hi! The thing I love about reading bandee's blogs is that I can relate to EVERYTHING!! Makes me feel like I am not alone on this journey.

    I lived in Didsbury for a bit in the late 80's and was just in Manchester for a 40th Birthday party (read: 3 nights of drinking and eating curry...) in November.

    Amy :-)

  8. Hey Sparkler!
    Love the name. Thanks for the comments, and I have been trying to catch up on your blog, too, but yours will take me a wee bit longer. :)

    And I think we should make an adult-only veriosn of care-bear land. Tell rainbow bear where to stick it.

  9. You live in England?
    *creams self a little*

    I'm glad that your band is working for you and that you're feeling restriction and losing weight! Congrats! Sounds like you're doing fantastically on this journey!
