I went to see RNY gastric bypass team today. I had a metabolic test done. It shows how many calories my body is actually burning at resting stage. It was better then I thought it would be which means I've been a bad girl. I was hoping to blame it on a slow metabolism even though I'm taking meds for hypothyroidism.
To be honest with myself and with everyone who read my board, I know what puts the weight back on better than anyone. First and foremost, wine. I love it. It does not love me so much. I have been guilty of drinking it to reduce the stress in my life and that really does work for me but not for my belly or my weight. Then, I feel guilty that I "cheated" even though I'm allowed it at my stage after RNY.
Stress has also had a lot to do with my weight eking up the scale. Lot's of stress and lots of wine make for a bad mix. belly fat again. Add to that about 15 pounds and guess who can't fit into her clothes anymore!? aaaaargh.
So, I came back to sparkpeople for support and for monitoring myself again. It's going to be a constant battle for me...or maybe I should just call it a constant journey. I need to always watch and measure what I eat and have some things in moderation.
I'd like to lose at least 10 pounds from this point.
Wish me luck and I hope I can get back down into the wardrobe I have. I do not want to buy any more! Yuk.
