Back to Basics - Because it works...

When I started this journey I had a plan and it was working well for me. I tracked everything and I blogged here. When my husband left again for A-stan after an amazing two weeks at home, well, I quit. EVERYTHING.

He's scheduled to come home in way less than a month. I've found myself in a place where I'm dissapointed that I'm not at goal 9 months out. How does one lose the last 40-50lbs in less than two weeks? One doesn't. I'm accepting that and taking responsibility for my trip off the wagon. And so, Ladies (and Gentlemen?) I present to you:

Monday Weigh-In

Pre-pre op diet: 265
Starting weight: 261
Today's Weight: 213
Total loss = 52# or
48# in the 281 days since banding

GOAL for first weigh-in in March:

Whatever it is/was, self-sabotage, apathy, or depression...
I will no longer allow me to keep me from a goal. Because if there is anything I've learned so far it's that I CAN do it and I ENJOY feeling GOOD.


  1. You can do it and so glad your hubby will be home soon! Happy Homecoming!!! There's nothing like that next first kiss! :)

  2. Good for you for getting back on track! Looking back and trying to figure out "what could have been" is a waste of your energy and a motivation sucker. You have done great so far..don't forget that. I know you can meet your March goal for sure!

  3. March is a ways away and you can do it...keep on track and do everything you know and will all come back to you!

    From one Military spouse (Canadian) to another, I am so glad your hubby is coming home!


  4. Where are you Cheeseburger girl??
