I did it. Surgery was on Monday (8/29/11). I'm feeling so much better this morning. Still some pain, but not enough that I feel the need to take more pain killer. I'm thinking that in a few more days, I should feel pretty much my old self.
I will say, before I started this journey, I did some soul searching. I spent several years on Weight Watchers, and making this decision, well, I felt like I was giving up. Initially. I totally feel I have made the best decision for me. I gained a lot of knowledge from WW. I will use all the tools I have to be successful. I feel like now I have the missing piece.
Being Banded doesn't mean I can do whatever now. I more than ever have to be vigilant on what I eat and keep active.
I'm brand new at this, but looking forward to my journey.

Needed to share this again. I needed to see it again.

I'm putting it here to be accountable.
There are now 50 weeks left of 2010. If I were to lose 1 lb per week, I will have lost 50 by the end of this year. So.........
I plan to lose 42.4 lbs to get to the goal I have set for myself. It is totally doable to lose .85lb. per week to accomplish this goal by the end of the year. This is what I will do.
To accomplish this goal, I will:
track my food
make better, healthier choices of food
exercise--consistantly, at least 3x/week
drink at least 6 glasses of water /day (WW)
Eat more filling foods (ww)
Keep track of what I'm doing. Be mindful. If something is not working..... fix it.

I just entered my WI for this week (home scale). Then I ran the report for 2009. Ugh!!!!! The line was pretty straight across the page, then up due to over indulging over the holiday. I immediately started thinking about how this is 2 years without reaching my goal. In fact, I am up a significant amount in the past 2 years. This downright pisses me off.
2010..... I am not calling this a "New Year's Resolution." This is called .... writing it down for all to see, to hold me accountable.
I am not happy where I am in my journey. The only one to blame is myself. I now forgive myself. Whatever has been holding me back is now gone.
No more excuses..... I will schedule my exercise into my days. At least three times a week, I will do some kind of cardio. I will continue to run. I worked way too hard to give that up. (Ashley, its you that inspires me now).
I will track my food. Points or Calories.... whichever.... I will stay within my limits. I will eat healthy. Fruits and Veggies are my friends. The teachers monthly luncheon is not. Cookies taste like stewed tomatoes (major yuk).
I love water, and I will consume 2 tsp of olive oil each day.
I will continually work on positive thoughts and outlooks.

I finished C25K at least a month ago. Now along with a few friends, we plan to do the Jingle Bell run in a couple weeks. I got an email at work that there would be a Turkey Trot yesterday. A 5k among other races. Free to enter except a small donation of food for the local food bank. I thought, why not? As the time got closer, I was also thinking of all the things that needed to be done around my home.
Backtrack......... I can't exactly say that my dh is totally supportive in why "entire" weightloss journey. The biggest lately is my new adventure in running. I announced to him last month that I was going to enter a 5K in December. He totally lost it. He said that being 50, I had no business starting this. I tried to explain to him that my reasons. Told him I don't want to be an old person, crippled up because I didn't bother to take care of myself.
I love my dh dearly, but his attitude and lack of supportiveness totally ticked me off. I was determined that a 5k would be in my future.
So with the support of friends, and the reminder of my goal from a fellow co-worker ...... I ran my first 5k yesterday. My goal when I left the start line, was to finish. I did. And I wasn't last either. I think I was the only 50 year old women that entered. The makes me proud too. And....... I won a turkey.
