New Orleans is well known for rain that appears without warning. It has been raining here for two solid days. Sunday, I spent the day cleaning between watching football games. Football is difficult for me because prior to my banding, it would include junk food, beer and sweets. I didn't do badly at all. I avoided the beer and talked my husband into grilling before the game. Today it is raining again, my husband and I elected to drive to the gym to use the treadmill for our morning walk. I was very pleased with myself for two reasons. 1. normally the rain would have given me an excuse to bail on exercise and 2. I even added some light jogging on the treadmill. Looks like the rain did not derail my journey along my new healthier lifestyle.


  1. Good for you on 2 fronts:
    1) you didn't get derailed by the game and programmed some healthy choices (grilling)
    2) you did your exercise!


  2. there were many occasions prior to my banding that I would have blew off my diet for that day or maybe even more depending on how long i binged.

  3. I totally understand where you are coming from and wish you lots of continued success!!

  4. That is awesome that you went to the gym! the rain would have been an excuse for me in the past as well! Actually it would not have had to even be raining, I could have found any excuse! way to go! you must feel great!
