Yeah, I Know It's Thursday

I didn't post my Weekly Wednesday Challenge because it was a joke.  I accomplished NOTHING.  It's not that I can't do it - I just haven't gotten on the program.

C couldn't have said it better, "Boy, Mom, you're gonna feel so embarrassed going back to work (in the fall) when you haven't lost any weight".  He's right.... and still that has NOT motivated me to get my shit together.

I started great.  I had a daily plan - cereal for breakfast, salad for lunch, 2 healthy snacks, healthy dinner with plenty of veggies, tons of water and zero pop.  I measured EVERYTHING. 

So what happened?  Well, you are about to enter a TMI zone... all those healthy veggies and water created a major shit fall - literally.  I was doing something at least every 90 minutes!  My hole was so damn sore I could barely walk!  I swear I shit out 10 pounds! 

So why don't I feel 10 pounds lighter?  I'm so pissed at myself, I didn't even bother to weigh-in.  I blame NO ONE but myself. I'm being lazy. That's all there is to it.  No excuses.

I'm finally giving in.  Gman has been wanting me to really think about medical intervention.  I'm giving the Lap-Band serious consideration.

This is NOT an easy fix for me.  The whole thing really scares me... the procedure itself, being poked at, going under, loose skin... all of it.

I would love your feedback on Gastric Bypass vs LapBand.

Thanks so much, Cori. It really is hard to admit sucking at something. The worst is there's no one to blame but me.
Thanks for the kudos. I'll take it. {smiles}

Don't beat yourself up! I too am on the diet-go-round. My latest gig is the HCG diet...except that I simply cannot survive on 500 calories a day. So I am combining diets...I'm taking the HCG because I feel so good with that supplement. And I'm eating low to no carbs and no sugar. It's so hard! I love food! I love to eat! Grocery shopping is very hard. I don't have much time for exercise but I am work keeps me hopping. Anyhow, don't bog yourself down. Just keep plugging away at it. If you mess up today, ok. Get back on track tomorrow.

As for the two surgery choices, I know people who have had both. I don't know much about the procedures but I have learned from my friends that the ones with lap-band are doing better, feeling better and moving forward. The gastric bypass folks struggle more with diet, fatigue, healing, and the like....
