10 things Thursday

Alrighty, gonna try this and see if I can come up with 10.

1) I'm so frustrated right now.  After getting a new scale and seeing things moving again, It looks like this weekends weigh in will put me right back at 225-ish.

2) (maybe an extension of #1) I shouldn't be frustrated since I've had some ice cream a couple nights this week, and keep forgetting to stop eating and wait to see if I'm done or not. I just keep going. (but really, this weight has been going on since Oct.. i'm over it)

3) I do get a pat on the back for today.  I went to a soup place for lunch today, they have 12 soups that change daily, and I was eyeballing the Twice-Baked Stuffed Potato (with bacon)..   but instead got chicken noodle.

Potato =Calories 380, fat 30 grams, net carbs 18 (carbs less fiber), dietary fiber 2 grams, protein 10 grams, per 8 ounce serving.

chicken noodle = Calories 120, fat 1 grams, net carbs 16 (carbs less fiber), dietary fiber 2 grams, protein 9 grams, per 8 ounce serving. PointsPlus: 3 

So yay for some part of my brain thinking (although I did eat 3/4 of the bread roll they gave me)

4)  I love my bracelet I got from myself  my hubby for christmas: 

5) I really need to win the Lotto.  Not only am I totally stressing over doing the budget this month (I'm pretty sure there's a couple of weeks when we've got about $15 for food)... but I really want to buy some personal training sessions.  Not only will they get me a work out plan, but Having somebody holding me accountable like that is good for me.  I can't seem to do it by myself.

6) Totally addicted to facebook. I don't post a lot, but I'm always checking to see what everybody else is doing. I think I live vicariously through my news feed.

7) Sometimes I love that my job can have a lot of downtime (plenty of time to catch up on blogger and/or make a post) .. and sometimes it sucks!! sitting for 8 hours with about 45 minutes of total work to do can go blow donkeys.  

8)  I'm  jealous of you people with your surgeon support groups.  I went to my first support group meeting after surgery.. and I was the ONLY band patient.  I know I should still go, but I also know me.  I know that the more irrelevant i find stuff (i.e. I CAN eat sugar and don't have to hunt down food with no sugar alcohols or whatever).. or the more.. jealous i get (the guy who was 6 months out from his bypass and had lost over 100 lbs so far), the less likely I am to want to go.. which is why I'm not.  But I do consider you all my support group.

9) speaking of speed, Sometimes i feel that my loss is hugely slow.  But then I read through some very successful people's blogs, and see I'm going faster, or at least on par with some of them.. and I feel better. i think I may need to do some more re-reading soon.

10) MINDSET.  I needs it! or at least the "right" one.  No more lazy, no more tons of food, no more bad food (within reason, part of why I got the band vs. bypass is "absolutely no_____!!" doesn't work for me)

And that's my ten things.  I'm not sure I can do this every week. I'm pretty boring :)



  1. I can relate to 9 totally. I do the SAME thing...

    cute bracelet!

  2. You're not boring ! My surgeon's support group are not useful at all. I get so much more (useful) info here on-line. From peeps like you !
