Back to my new normal

Christmas is over and although I love the time with family, I will be glad to get back to my normal life. I did great on Christmas Eve and Christmas, but we went out of town the day after Christmas. We went to The Rockstar's family to celebrate Christmas. I ate way too much junk over the last two days. I don't know why I can be perfect at home, but lose all control the second we go out of town. Ugh....whatever, I am over it and I will be back on track tomorrow.

Yesterday marked 7 weeks since my surgery. I have lost 23 pounds since surgery. I am still figuring some things out....like what foods do not agree with my band. I haven't tried the obvious trouble foods (bread, pasta, etc), but I have been surprised at some of the other foods I can't tolerate, like eggs. I also don't do well with ground beef. I am a picky eater, so at times I feel like I am eating the same things over and over. I have eaten so much chicken and turkey that I feel like I might start growing feathers soon.

I have a week left of Christmas break...woohoo!!!! I love sleeping late and staying in my big butt pajamas all day. In the last week I have noticed that all of my pants are turning in to "big butt" pants...they are all completely sagging. I got 3 different gift cards to Kohl's for Christmas, so I think I may use one of them in the next week and buy a couple new pairs of pants. I have some smaller clothes from a couple of years ago when I was thinner, but I'm not quite to the point that I can wear those yet. I tried on a pair of the jeans I had in the back of the closet, and although I could get them up they were so tight if I farted it would have blown my boots off. So, although I hate to shop, I guess that's what I will do over the next few days.

Toodles my little banded peeps!

"Blown my boots off" -- tee hee hee :-) Sounds like the perfect timing for those gift cards. Enjoy buying shrinking sizes, girl!! And please keep blogging about what foods agree/disagree with you now. I'm right behind you trying to figure out this new life!

23 lb in 7 weeks! Averaged out it's over 3 lb a week. That's so fantastic, well done you. :oD No wonder you've got "big butt" pants! You'll be in those old clothes before you know it at this rate.

Check out the GoodWill or Salvation Army or other cosignment shops- you can sometimes find nice clothes for CHEAP while you are in the transition stages.
