Proposition to the group!

Well my peeps... I have not posted in a while but have been reading. Seems like every time I go to post something I am just bitching so I erase it and wait another day to see if something better comes along....So far Nada!

Band news: Nothing...still with my last fill that was in early Jan. and I think I am good for now. In the month  from Jan-Feb I lost another 6lbs of fat and gained a pound of muscle. I don't think Feb-March will be as much but I had my trip to Las Vegas and got off track a little bit. (more to do with not working out than eating)  I will do a weigh in at the Doctors on March 15th and use that to see where I stand.

I've had a couple stuck episodes so I know I have good restriction. They were my fault 100% just picking something that I knew better than to try.... but I WANTED IT! (Stomps foot and gives dirty look to the damn french bread)

I'm still doing that thing where I feel like a bottomless pit for a day but then have hardly anything for a couple days...not sure what gives but I need to try to get more of a balance.


Proposition: I noticed a lot of you post what you are eating daily...and some (like me) post that info randomly just to provide an idea to others what we are consuming. What if we pick a day of the week where everyone tries to post what they ate? I figure it will do a couple of things... 1. a blog post that you don't have to think too much about would be covered for at least one day a week  and 2. give an idea to others what we are eating! I'm thinking a weekday might work out better than a weekend.... any takers? Then we need a name?

Other: I am scheduled for my vein surgery on Monday March 15th (left Leg) and then my right leg on Tuesday April 6th. I am really happy to get this done. I have THE UGLIEST VARICOSE VEINS!!!! This (and being fat) has kept me from wearing shorts for ......well, forever! I will be having it done where I had my WLS. It is an out patient procedure and is nothing like the old way they used to do it when I first looked into it years ago.  They slide a needle/rod up your main vein and then with a laser close off the branch leading to the big bulgy veins....then when they are empty the make little cuts and remove the empty vein forever. Sounds easy enough :)  Mine ache and swell. I really am excited about it.

Well, I am off to try to read and comment on a few blogs.
Goodnight

  6. Excellent idea! Lets do one day between Mon-Thurs. How about today (Thurs) for a trial run? I can post what I eat today. Or people can post what they ate the prior day? Either way it sounds very helpful.



    Good luck with the surgery!

  9. Welcome back to blog land! Seriously, if I waited until I had something exciting to blog about, well I wouldn't have even started one! I also very much like the idea of getting an idea of what everyone is eating on a daily basis. It seems we get lots of information on what NOT to eat and why... but in reality, it is what we DO EAT that will affect our weight loss in the long run. Bring it on... sounds positive and extremely helpful. Great idea.
