Had my lap band doctor apptointment today . I lost about 6lb in 6 weeks so it was a pound a week. I'm slow and steady that seems to be my normal.I go back in 6 weeks right before thanksgiving. I had hoped to lose more a week when I started this journey. you see so many before and after photos and they lost 2-3 lb a week but with having the baby its not the case with me.
My clothes are getting to big which is a bit of a problem i dont have the money to buy more so i have to make due and wear belts. some things I have smaller sizes I can wear but the stuff I really like are not looking so good anymore. They are falling off or hanging too low. at work I have had a few people comment my pants were too big. they notice the legs being too big. And even so I dont see that much of a difference when looking in a mirror. Sometimes im actually surprised when a smaller pair of jeans fit because I dont feel like I have lost weight but obviously I have. I guess its because I lose it so slow. I have also noticed my son (13) has lost weight as well and the pants i just bought him for school are too big he had to get a belt. so not buying all the junk food is paying for more then one person. he is not overweight but was on the upper end for his age
Today I woke up with a slight cold. It has affected my voice I sound horse . And dont have much energy today. I have been sneezing and everyonce in awhile my nose runs so it could be allergies. So i havent eatten the best today from not feeling so good especially this morning getting better as the day goes.
I did make some ant's on a log . I havent had this in years and wonder why I have waited so long lol. Its good for a snack and it helps take away my sweet cravings and it has some protein in it from the peanut butter. I used cruncy peanut butter and lots of raisons. Funny how you forget about foods that you really like. My daughter likes them too. I managed to eat some leftovers for supper at work I wasent really wanting it but knew i had to eat something. I need to stock up on some soups for days like today. I could really go for some chicken noodle soup .
Over the weekend I did paint my kitchen cabinets white . wow what a difference it made. the kitchen is so much brighter . course im a terrible painter and got paint on everything else but most of it is getting replaced as well so didnt really matter. all i have to do now is i want to do some touch up and paint the cabnits i painted months ago just so i know they match color wise. Then onto the walls! It may be next weekend before i get anymore done. Spent a lot of time with the kids playing outside most of saturday we went 4wheeling and played cornhole. Sunday we played some board games.
