I just had dinner at Sizzle.rs. I was the final Lapband group meet up for the year. Yep, we meet at a all you can eat resturant chain for our meet-ups :o) it worked out that it was the most convenient location, and as we dont eat too much hey give us a senior's discount! Having said that i have over done it a little with dinner.
But anyway, we were there for dinner and had a great time, one of the women jad to have her band removed in an emergaency a few months ago and just last week had a by-pass. It started a whole new range of talking points. Basically, is the by-pass better han the band?
He group that goes, is sort of divided into two sides. One side are the group ha have been banded for a while, they lost a heap of weight, got to goal and now have put a lot of the weight back on. The other side, have been banded more recently and are still loosing weight. I tend to put myself on that side if the group, even though it seems like forever since i have cominuously lost weight. The original group of bandsters are all looking at the by-pass as the next thing to do, as the band doesnt seem to be working anymore.
I have to sometimes wonder is it the band not working, or is it them not working with the band? But someone posed a new point tonight. The band is too high maintance for them and so is looking at by-pass as an alternative.
Is the band high maintance? I have never really thought so. But then each journey is always different and it may be a big work load for them. All i know is that after i have a meeting with them, I am more inspired to do what i need to do. I need to lose weight and fast.
I guess the real reason for these sentiments is because I had a bad food day. Not just tonight, but today at work, cake and bikkies were consumed again. And what I hate the most, is that I didn't even enjoy it that much. I was eating it because it was there and I wasn't in the mood to fight the urges.
I think I have worked out why though, you know besides the fact that I have no follow thru on sticking to a health plan, and habits because the las few days, I have not been having protein with my lunch, I have only been having a salad of tomato, feta cheese, avocado, cucumber and onion. I have been forgetting to add he tuna I was supposed to have with it. His in turn has left me feeling hungry early afternoon and so I have been snacking on junk, but then that leads to me not eating dinner, cause I'm full.
It's a vicious cycle and it must stop!!!!
And I think I have discovered one small reason behind this insanity.
Yep, the solution to dealing with myself, has become a little bit of the problem.
You see, when I blog about something that is upsetting, I type out all my frustration and big dreams for a better me. I pour all of my ideas into it.... And once it is out, I realease it, never to be thought of again (or at least until the subject arises again) Writing is my release and with out this blog, everything gets bottled up and does more harm than good.
Now that I have realized this, I am hoping I can work on it just a little, so that I can stay focused on one thing long enough for it to have an affect on my journey.
But then again, I have now blogged about it, so I may just forget about it again :o)
What I am going to do is spend a little time going back though some of my posts and just check on some things that I said a was going to do, and make a list. And print it out so that I have a hard copy of it. Just to see how things are going.
This blog really is a continuous evolution of me, so I should at least try to keep up with all the changes.
So, after this very random post on lots of subjects, I shall leave you. (I promise I have not been drinking, I am just a little tired) I hope you have had a great Wednesday and that the rest of week happens quickly for us all, and I just want to say thanks for listening, it does help to clear the brain's cobwebs once in a while.
