I have brought shame upon the family.
The bandster family.
I gained 4 pounds over the course of this long weekend. hahhahah 4 pounds! Ladies...I just don't know how you can gain 4 pounds so damn fast when it takes so long to lose them. Oh wait...yes I do....
Sunkist (fully loaded, not diet, I drank 2 cans).
drink your water
make healthy choices
damn. But now the parents are gone, and all the snacks are gone too. I am back at work, drinking my water, not snacking, planning my meals, and going to workout. I am not upset. I will lose it this week I hope.
But here is the alarming thought....
I have pretty good restriction. When I eat the proper food (protein meats, etc) I get full and sometimes get stuck. But...the band doesnt do much for all the junk. If I can gain 4 pounds in as many days WITH the band...it just goes to show that this is not the easy way out! So take that nay-sayers! But with THAT said...do you ever wonder if the band is more placebo than anything?
For sure I wouldnt have lost 84...oops...80 pounds in 6 months if not for the surgery. And yes the band stops me from overeating at meals. And I love Tina...no doubt...dont regret it for a second...but sometimes I wonder. We know the band doesnt work for everyone. So does it come down to believing in the band? Or believing in yourself? Or both?
Ouch-this makes my head hurt. Too much thinking for a Monday! Just wanted to share!
