This and That

I have discovered a wonderful thing about my blogging.  Less and less of my blogging entries are about the band, dieting and exercising.  I am discovering so many other beautiful parts of my life to write about.  Do you notice it too?  Are your struggles with weight issues are taking up less of your thoughts also?

This is not to say that I should not remain vigilant.  Weighing on Mr. Scale will be a daily occurance for the rest of my life.  I will never let pounds "creep" up on me.  If there is an extra pound on that scale, I am dayum sure gonna address it!  Why did it happen and do whatever needs to be done to correct it! 

I now have so much more time to spend thinking and blogging about joys of my life instead of  weight battles.  Anyone who follows my blog is sure to know that I absolutely LOVE being Grandma.  I have worked 32 years of my life and on the verge of retiring so that I can devote more time to my girls.  I have always been a working Mom, I missed out on so much pleasure with my own daughter.  Spoiling my grandchildren is my idea of fun.  They grow up so fast and before I am know it, hanging around Grandparents will no longer be cool.  Good thing I have 3 adult children, so I am sure I will have replacements!

My newfound healthy life is affording me so much time to explore new hobbies and interests!

My wish for today is that all banders will find themselves in this same place.  Today I realized that I have not counted calories, measured portions or stressed about exercising or dieting in over two months.  I don't have to think about it thanks to my band.


Happy Saturday to everyone!

  1. I'm looking forward to reaching that point. Still being realatively new to the band (only 4 months) the issues of weight loss are still a huge focus of my life, but knowing that it is possible to have a life id encouraging. Thanks for bringing this up!

  3. Happy Saturday to you too! I totally agree with the life shift and it is soooo much more than I ever thought it would be...life after weightloss. I wish we could share it with others who are trying and failing at the weightloss game...I just don't think words can capture it though.

  5. I am with you...life is nicer knowing that I am healthier, my clothes fit and I feel great. I also love that food and dieting does not rule my life (although blogging might!!!) and I am just living...what freedom.

  8. Hi Dee...how do I go about following you? There is no "follow" button!

    I love reading your blog and it would be easier If it would show up in my list of blogs I follow.

    You sound very content in your weight loss journey and I live for that day myself. Great post!

  11. I know exactly how you feel. When I found that I was beginning to blog about things other than the band and weight loss, I started a 2nd blog about my house and crafting - http://sallysburrow.blogspot.com - so as to not mix the two. I still blog on my weight loss blog, as well. Isn't it great to have so many doors open up in life?
