Same song different day..

So, I have been on and off the wagon lately. There is no question that I need a fill. My new norm has been a giant salad (4 cups lettuce, .5 cup chicken, and a bunch of other veg). I, however, am not able to get in for a fill until September 1st. I am about 15 lbs up from my very lowest low that I saw for a blink. My band has been empty, or nearly empty, for about 4 months now. Honestly, I am pleased I haven't gained more weight. I am hungry all the time! I am working to make good decision. I would like to get that 15 lbs off by my next fill, though I doubt it will happen.

I forgot how hard it is when you are really hungry and just don't get full. We have also had some recent family drama. My husband's grandmother passed away last month. He was extremely close to her, doesn't have a relationship with his mom (grandma is mom's mom) which has continued to cause drama. We also inherited her two cats. We are now a family of 5 cats and 1 dog. Here is a picture of our two newest additions (Buddy in front and Butler on the next step up, you can also see Capone in the background looking the wrong way).

None of this stuff is a good excuse for a 15 lbs gain... and I would like to fit into my very smallest pants again. So... onward and downward (on the scale) I go!

Update... I am lame

So, I haven't had a whole lot to update lately. I still only have 1.5 cc in my band. I can eat anything and then sometimes nothing. It is frustrating, but I am pretty sure it is my lack of chewing. I am doing okay weight wise, however, I haven't really weighed myself in a while. I am dealing with the emotional side of weight loss/loving my body. When I don't know the number on the scale I can truly love my body. I can appreciate the strength and success. When I look at the scale I can be down or up. I am giving that a rest. My clothes all still fit, some are loose, so I think things are a-okay.

I have started being more careful about carbs though... I think they really dictate my hunger level and cravings so I am trying to be smarter about my food choices. I continue to read all your blogs, but I am just so busy at work right now. Barb, your new body, and swim suite look amazing by the way!

Take care all!
