1 lb Loss
This girl does!!! Ok, it was only one pound, but the important thing is... I DID NOT GAIN ANY WEIGHT WHILE ON VACATION.
No, I was not at all perfect with my choices. I had a few homemade frozen cocktails, but I budgeted my calories for them. I had treats, again...I counted the calories and budgeted for them. When I made a choice that was not healthy, it was with my eyes wide open. I ate it and then got right back on the path to healthy. I did not let any poor choices give me an excuse to binge the rest of my vacation.
I exercised with fun things like hour long walks on the beach, swimming. I am happy with myself. Onward!
Yesterday I did a psych evaluation regarding bariatric surgery. I resented the tiny (size 0) psychiatrist telling me what I was doing wrong. I have battled my weight 30+ years. I know what is healthy and what is not. I think anyone who has been on yo-yo diets knows what we SHOULD eat. So what makes it so hard for me to continue on this road? Why do I lose weigh only to regain it again? This psychiatrist gave me absolutely no insight on this problem. What a waste of money.
I am having second thoughts about having WLS. I am worried about possible complications. The fact that I am slowly chipping away at my weight on my own is also a reason. I am scared not to follow through with surgery...what if I fall down again? Will I be able to pick myself up again? What is so wrong with me that I can watch my family members have limbs amputated and still I struggle to eat healthy & exercise......So much to think about.
