Kinda frustrated right now....

- I don't want another fill because my portion size seems right on track and I seem to be full long enough. I don't want to be too aggressive with fills because I don't want any complications.

- I am going to the gym at least 4 times a week (trying for 5 times most weeks)

- I am craving Chocolate in a major way so I get into funks where I raid my sister's room (she lives with us) and find her chocolate stash. Or (gasp) purchase a small chocolate to satisfy my "fix" I swear... I am an addict.

- I am eating between meals just because I "feel" like I want it and I justify in my mind that it won't hurt to have a few.

- AND DUH, the scale is barely, and I mean barely, moving. My personal goal of losing these last 2 lbs so I can be at 80lbs lost is feeling impossible.

Here's what I am going to do about it:

- JOURNAL!!!! I have never been good at this but if write down everything I put in my mouth I'll be more aware of my calorie intake for the day.

- Eat on schedule. If it's not time to eat then I don't get to eat. (plus, this will tell me if I need to get an adjustment)

7-8 - Breakfast
11:30-12:30 - Lunch
3pm - possible 100 cal snack
5:30-6:30 - Dinner

GO TO BED, without eating any further snacks.

- Continue going to the Gym.


I have been banded for 9 months and have slowly started to get more and more complacent. I am on the verge of getting to that weight that I've never seen in my adult life. I need to up my game and make this happen. I have 52 lbs to go until goal...

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed!

On a side note:
It's been a wonderful 9 years!

Try to eat more solid protein so that you are not snacking in between. Instead of chocolate, try a tootsie roll or two. They actually fill me up, whereas chocolate goes right through.
You can DO IT!
