I have been MIA.

And I am up up and up. I am currently weighing in at 208.4. However, I am not yet updating because Friday is the official day. I can only imagine how much worse it will be by then! :) Yup, you read me right. Almost four pounds in less then two weeks. I have been over indulging. How guilty do I feel? Yeah not so much actually. I have had a fantastic time, however, I don't go back to work until Monday and am a little stressed about staying on track. I have learned though, that I will not gain 20 lbs in a week. I go in for a fill next Tuesday and the timing is perfect. I have almost no restriction. I can tell a small difference if I eat too fast or don't chew (at all) but I can eat pretty much anything and as much of it as I want. I did get tons of compliments from my family about how much thinner I am. I am looking forward to the new year and getting hardcore on my weight loss again.

I am most thankful for the decision I made to have the band surgery. I would not be where I am without it. Even though it has been a rough week and a half, there is no doubt I will get back on track!

The first picture is of myself, my husband, and our pitbull Ike. I am suffering from that whole "bigger head" problem Amy talked about in one of her posts. The second pic is Jay and Ike, Ike is smiling so nice I wanted to include it.

Good to have you back! Don't worry too much about the four pounds - if you can - because I always say ... with the band we can lose it again quick smart.. and perhaps a little easier I think than if we didn't have it.

Just focus grasshopper :)

You will lose that 4 pounds as quickly as it came. I learned early since being banded that vacation weight is easy to take off it you begin right away!
