Hitting the reset button!

So I had a small gain last week. I felt really down in the dumps about it. The darn Easter candy got to me. I love jellybeans and robin eggs (candy coated Whoppers) Love those malted milk balls! I ate WAYYYYY to much candy this weekend. So I knew I had a doctors appointment today and I'm going to have a fill. I haven't been to the doctor since Feb. 17th. I know that I'm going to show a loss on their scale but not as much as it could be. Today I get to see the PA who also runs our support group. She is the PA for both the surgeons in the office. I was discussing how much is in my band and my concerns. She thought that I didn't have enough. I asked her if she would put a bigger fill in me and she said yes. So today I am hitting the reset button on my weight loss. Unfortunately my appointment isn't until later afternoon, but I'm still going to do liquids today and of course then liquids for the next day or two and then back to mushies. I think this is what I need to get back on track! I want to be out of the stinking 300's by May. That is a little over 16 lbs. in about 3 weeks. I might be pushing it but I need a goal. Then the next goal is another 25 lbs by July 1st. Am I setting myself up for disappointment?

  1. Just kick this in the butt! I know you can do it, with the help of your tool. Don't ask if it is too much, just commit and try like hell to get there. We won't call you out if you don't make it! Big goals are the only way to lose big numbers!

  2. Be careful getting to tight! I sincerely understand your frustration. But being too tight with the band is really bad as well.

    I do believe that getting back on track means getting your head in the game and making good choices. You are doing great, so do not be so hard on yourself. As long as you are honest with yourself, and are doing all the right things, the weight will come off.

  4. I go back to all liquids whenever I need to kick my butt into gear. I totally think that's a great plan. I say it's fine to aim high with weight loss goals b/c if you don't quite make it you still lose weight! And that's the point. Just don't beat yourself up if you don't hit the goal you set. The point is progress and any progress is good progress!!
