As of today, I am recommitting to my band. I am so tired of watching the scale creep upward. I have to do this. I refuse to gain back the weight I’ve lost. I’ve been hoping to lose 10 lbs by the time I see Dr. M again, but that’s 2 weeks from tomorrow so I’m not sure if I can manage that now. I’ll take anything at this point though. I’m going to start tracking my calories again, drinking all my water and exercising.

I’m also updating my ticker and info on the sidebar because I want to be completely honest and have 100% accountability. I might also start posting what I’m eating daily, but that will get kind of boring. LOL

Wish me luck!

    Lots of luck and I know you can do it. You have been through so much so don’t blame yourself, just let it go and start from the beginning. I put myself back on the liquid diet and I dropped a couple of pds., you might want to try that also. Best Wishes and I will keep looking at your blog.

    I believe in you! The Lord will help you find the courage to start all over again!

    Just look at what you have already done. šŸ™‚

    I have been at a standstill as far as my weightloss is concerned. I have lost 70 lbs since banded April 08. I want to lose at least 10-15 more pounds, but I have been stuck for over 4 months. I don’t want more fluid…I want to be able to eat halfway “normal” with my family and friends. So…I am going to start again just like you and eat better choices. I have to remember that the band is just a tool and I have to change my eating habits.

    We can do it!

    Take it one day at a time.
