Trying to get back on track

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

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.

    You and me both: alcohol is a big no-no for me, I've put on weight in the past 4 months, and I really need to lose weight to get back into my clothes. We can do it together emoticon

    Wine is one of the things I love that I really have to limit to just few times a year. I will gain big time when I drink.

You can do it!
