First off, thanks for all of your wonderful comments yesterday about my dress.
@Seeing in Colour: I know I'm not the most overweight as the average person who gets banded but I started out at 206lbs and me getting the surgery was more of putting a stop to the gaining weight. I yo-yo dieted for years and knew I couldn't control my GIANT appetite and watched my weight steadily rising. I knew if I didn't do something quick I would wake up one day 400+lbs. My eating was completely out of control and I was never full. I stretched my stomach for so long I could eat enough to fill 3 grown men. So I chose the band to help prevent me from getting bigger. As you can see, it hasn't been easy even being smaller starting off. I know it seems crazy! I still am blown away that I actually did the surgery. But I would do it all over again for sure. By now, I'd probably have gained 50lbs or more if I hadn't.
Now, as far as the title goes....I have found some magical pants! A friend of mine went to a local store Rue21 (not sure if it's in other states or not). Anyway they are known for their very "in" and fashionable clothes. I shop there quite a bit and they have wonderful sales too. Anyway she saw they had some black dress slacks on sale for $5 yesterday. So I went in to take a look and tried on a 9/10 and they fit well and were even a little loose in the waist especially. So I (just for kicks) decided to try a 7/8 on and......THEY FIT!!!! HOLY CRAP!!! I almost fell out right there. I literally checked the tag in the pants about 3 times to make sure I hadn't hallucinated! MAGIC PANTS? Yes, I believe so! I don't think I have been in a 7 or 8 since I was 8 years old! hahaha I know it's the tailor of the pants because my friend who is usually a 7/8 got into a 5/6 with no problem. So they are made that way. So in real life outside of this magic pants factory they would probably be more of a 9/10 which is still fine with me. But owning a pair of pants with 7/8 in the tag is just an extra bonus!!!! yay!
Menu for today:
Breakfast: click protein, hot green tea with 1 splenda and french vanilla coffemate powder
Lunch: Blueberry greek yogurt with 2 tbsp gourmet nutty fruit mix
Snack: 3 pickles and 1 ounce of mild cheddar cheese ( I ABSOLUTELY love this stuff)
Dinner: Meatloaf, yams, and green beans. (about 1 1/2 cups of food)
Not sure how many calories that is but I am shooting for 1100 so I can slowly increase as I planned. If this doesn't cut it I will add a snack tonight to make it.
BTW: I cheated on my Monday weigh-ins. :*( Oopsy! I just couldn't help myself to weight this morning because I feel like with all the adjustments I am making every day I MUST know how it is effecting the scale! I MUST!!!!! So I have decided to wait until the new year starts once I get in the groove of this new plan and it's consistent to start doing weekly weigh-ins. Just for my peace of mind. So Dizzy, the plan is on for us to start that together! Don't forget!!!!!
Oh and BTW again, I lost 4 more oz as of this morning. So I guess it's heading in the right direction. Too early to tell if my adjustment is the cause.
Tata for now peaches, I am a busy bee today!
