and here I am again

When I had lapband surgery Sept 2009 I weighed 209.5 lbs, at my lowest weight following the surgery I got down to 157lbs.  Today here I sit back at 187.5 lbs.  Since I no longer have the help of the lapband, I need to find another way to get back on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

What went wrong?  First off, I think I let myself get over confident when I had the band.  I believed that I was doing the work when it seems it really was the band. Secondly, I have quit all exercising, which led me to the usual depression that snowballed into a year long binge.

With a New Year coming, I it is time for me to make a new plan.  I am 52 years old now, not interested in getting model skinny, just healthy and stronger.

Blogging was a big part of my weightloss success with the band, I hope it will help me now without it.  I am going to start each week with a new step.

The first step is going to be simple...As of today, I will drink 8+ glasses of water, I will track it  and I will post to my blog each day.
