hall out the holly...

let me just say this has nothing to do with my band, so tune out if you like.... lol.................................. 

My Christmas Tree is up, we got a real one this year I know it is early but I wanted to be all done with decorating by Thanksgiving.  I Love the tree it is the nicest real tree I ever had, it is a Fraser fir and has a great shape, height and width. I am excited to start and finish, so far I have the lights on and the topper, tonight when John is sleeping I will decorate it.  I am doing the outside stuff this afternoon, I am going to be the first in the neighborhood to have lights outside lol maybe the 1st in the USA lol.   pics of my tree will be coming whether you like it or not lol I love me some Christmas.

more protein = less me

I did really good today with proteins up and carbs down I am very proud of myself for that, also I did not snack AT ALL!!!!!!  no picking no bites of Johnny's lunch while feeding him, no grabbing a hand ful of sunchips, no halloween candy (thank Christ thats gone) I was super dooper good today and with the protein not snacking was actually like easy, it didnt really take will power I was just all set with putting anything in my mouth, and I mean anything haahahaa ok ok thats enough of that..... so anyways I put a sidexside pic on my b4 and after tab up there ^ and when I see it like that I am like whoa what a big change I am so happy and so proud of myself. I am also ready and motivated to do even better and get to the goal I set, getting to the # on the scale I want, and person in the mirror I want to see, but most importantly I can not wait to be the mom, women, wife, daughter, sister, aunt who worked her butt off to not get diabetes!!!  

talk again soon    xo Tee

broken scale?, or slacking mama?

                                            I would like to use my scale for target practice!
                                   (yes thats me at the range,shooting an M&P 9mm compact)

I dont know why I have not seen the scale move, I am still at 237. I have not been doing anything differently and maybe that is the problem I have to add another "workout session" a day and I have to set a meal schedule and stick to it no snacking in between meal time. I am thinking maybe something like
  • breakfast @ 8am
  • lunch @ 12pm
  • lite snack or protein shake @ 3pm
  • dinner @ 6pm
I know that I do way to much bite here bite there during the day, lil of this lil of that while cooking for Johnny, that ends TODAY!     

Scheduled meals----- thats the only way I am going to get to my goal.......

here are a few of my meal choices, I know these are not the best but they are the only ones I have taken pictures of this week.

                                this is one of my go to lunches or dinner, baked mac & cheese with tomatoes
I am thinking about adding plain greek yogurt when mixing the cheese for some added protein. this only about 3/4 c of mac&cheese and 1/2 c tomatoes and I can never finish the entire thing  (but I try lol)

                                       I LOVE these, one of my favorite choices for dinner or lunch with a lil tomato sauce for dipping, and I never get stuck on these (knock on wood) if I have these for dinner I have 4. I am a calorie and protein counter, I do not count fat or anything else.  by the way I love Trader Joe's !!!!!

I hope to see a change on the scale now that I have a new plan. I also have a mini goal to get to 220 by Christmas, wish me luck! I am going to work hard to get use to a schedule and stick to it.

                                                                 I promise! (myself)

In other news, we got about 6" of snow the other day, already! I was happy to see it, I do love the snow I would love a nice blizzard this year, as long as we do not lose power again!!! we are seriously due for a white Christmas too.  how 'bout a pic of the latest snow, sure here ya go.

 my street (from my side door)
we are going to my in-laws for Thanksgiving this year, I figured I would be better off if I didn't do the cooking (snacking and testing all damn day everything I make) I am going to say right now that I AM HAVING A SLICE OF PECAN PIE! I am going to allow myself a slice and I will accept the consequences and not complain about the gain, this is my first holiday season with my lapband and I am trying to be realistic about the choices I am going to make, I figure if I plan for them I can have more control and will not end up saying well I might as well eat everything in sight now that I ate a slice of pie, anyways I know it is 10 days away and I will write up a tgiving eating plan and post it before then so thats enough about tgiving and delicious gooey buttery crispy chewy pecan pie, for now!  do you have a plan? do you have any tips for a gal who plans on eating pecan pie? lol
oh I almost forgot to tell ya........ I got another fill I am at 9.5 cc in my 14cc band, but I need another fill. I do not feel that I am in my green zone yet, maybe at 10cc. I also do not want to get to the point where I can not eat certain things, I want it to be more about portion not making it so I cant eat a bite of an English muffin without standing over the sink spitting out slim and felling like I have a loaf of bread in my chest. (good times)
goodbye for now folks.

3 month bandiversary...

let me just start by saying it is about 21 days past my 3 month anniversary, as much as I wanted to have the time to sit and be able to think about anything other than, at home mom stuff, and housewife stuff, I did not have much time, so here it is baby I hope I can keep you tuned in 'cuz not much has happened in weeks because I have no health insurance right now so that means no fills since getting topped off at 9cc not too long ago. so let me see where to start......

my weight at my first appt with surgeon 274.9 pounds

my weight morning of surgery         259.4     pounds

my current weight     238.8 pounds  (word)

I am kinda happy and mad about that last #  I know I could have been down a lot more if I got in more exercise seriously no more excuses about that, why the hell would I not go down the cellar for 15 or 20 minutes a day , it would make me happier with my weekly weigh ins not because it would make me lose more, well not only that, but because I would not have to hear the lil voice in my head when I look at the scale saying " well, ya that's great but it could be better, if you got off your ass porka"  but then on the other hand I am very proud of myself when I think of just how bad I could be and when I think of how I do get in my exercise daily, I know I am confusing you but what I think I am trying to say is this....
 I have to stop comparing myself to the me I would be if I had nothing but time for me, I am not that me and I have to just accept that when I was thinking about how hard I was going to work at this and all of the exercising I was going to do and whatever while I was in preop phase, I was thinking of me and me alone- big mistake! I could never have the time or energy to live up to my own expectations, not the me who has to make breakfast lunch dinner and drinks and snacks and playtime and stories, and everything else for my lil guy, plus diaper changes, tubbys, bedtimes and naptimes, and laundry and just sitting down for 5 seconds (to watch caillou of course)... I have decided to set more realistic weekly exercise goals for myself, I dont know what would be a good idea of like how many hours in a week I should aim for but I think that setting a weekly # would help, (any ideas?)

I have been really thinking about my goal weight ( I have decided on 150)  and I know I will get there and I (kinda) know how.  I am going to stop putting this 1 year time limit on myself, and I am going to make a more mommy friendly workout plan so I can stop feeling like a mini failure when I should be feeling like WHOA I have lost 37 pounds in 116 days....

lets see what else ......OH can I just say I hate 241, I stayed 241 for a lot more weeks than I should have it was like 3 weeks! but now I am happily at 238.8 and I will never have to see 241 on my scale again... I do hate you 241 you are a bastard, F- you and the cookie you rode in on.   

here are a few  pics of me for your viewing pleasure  from day of surgery to now




 about 1 month post op

about 2 months post op

                                                 3 months post op
37 pounds down woohoo :o)

                                      and my lil guy, Johnny.

bad blogger

I have been kinda busy... I was working on a 3 month anniversary post and I am still not done... so here is just a quick hello .....


ya know what I am really starting to think I need another fill! is it normal to feel that you are in the green zone for a few weeks after a fill and then start to notice that you need another fill? I have 9cc in my 14cc band ( I kinda hate that my Dr uses 14cc bands in all of his patients and I am mad at myself for not thinking to even ask about the size of the band before surgery,  I did not find out, or ask 'til my first fill- I do think they should have told me though ) anyways I need a fill and I have no health insurance STILL!  well my lil guy is in his toy box so gotta go ..... will finish up the 3 month post soon I promise....

oh and here I am the other day at the zoo.

Sunday, October 7, 2012

welll hello there

I noticed today that I have a few new followers, hello to you! welcome lol I am warning ya now that I usually write very boring posts lol but I am trying to get better this is my first blog and I have only been doing it for about 4 months so please forgive me for the many things wrong with this blog haha but I do hope you learn something... I actually want to start doing some more stuff with it like writing about things that I think people don't care to know, maybe you all do care what I eat, what I do for exercise, or the reason why I didn't exercise on a certain day lol I mean after all this is a blog about me having a lap band and my journey to my goal weight (140 ish) I know I have to start putting out some more "stuff" because I know when I was looking for info when I was trying to make the decision to get banded I wanted to know EVERYTHING  what bandsters ate, how much, how it felt getting a fill, how often did you have to go in for post-op....etc... oh and pictures I really liked seeing pictures when I was looking for info so I know for sure I have to start posting more of all of that ^ stuff lol ....

SO ANYWAYS WELCOME NEW PEEPS, if I am not following you already please leave a comment with your info :o)          Tee

feeling good

my lil guy is 2 years old! wow I cant believe it! we had his birthday party the other day just his grandparents came but he had sooo much fun he loves to be the center of attention so for him it was perfect without other kids.

 I got another fill today .....  .5 cc , so that brings me up to 9 ccs in my 14cc band. I think this is gonna do it!  .... my weight this morning was 241 :o)
oh and....
I have had quite a few NSV lately.....

1.) I fit into a pair of size 16 jeans, fit into but cant wear or sit in them lol but they did button and zipper and I could breath.
2.)I feel pretty again
3.) I am big on wearing pajamas @ home, like as soon as I am in the house I change into PJs and lately I have been wearing cute PJs not just comfy, and I bought some sexy slippers (well sexier than the huge pink ones I use to wear)
4.) I actually put on makeup the other day! and wore my hair down! have not done that in awhile.

thats all I can think of right now (@ midnight) but I will leave you with a few pics of my lil guys bday party for your viewing pleasure....

82 days and 32 pounds later....

these 2 pictures are what made me decide to get lap band surgery. When I saw these pictures I realized that at that weight (274) and size (20), when I said "being fat doesn't bother me, I am happy" It was not the truth any longer, I had gotten to the point that it was bothering me, it was affecting my life, my being a good mom was harder, playtime was painful, my back hurt SO bad, everything was in some way was starting to be a lil bit different because I was fat, I had never felt that way before I had never felt that my being fat changed how I was living other that be a fat girl it didn't make me behave differently just same ol me always,  I have not been fat my whole life, so I remember being thin and I know that I felt the same up intil this year right about the time these (horrible) photos were taken... I am lucky to have had "glory days" and I want them back! .... so anyways these pictures made me think one thing.....

that was me... then....

on July 5, 2012 I got my lil gadget, my lap band! and this is me 82 days later....

this picture is a bad one, but it was the most recent, I will have my hubby take one tomorrow and put in in right under here........
but there is a big difference I think... I feel so much better, my face is smaller my belly is smaller and I am down 32 pounds so it has to be gone from somewhere right lol actually these pants are my husbands pajama pants (I am wearing in the yard in the pic above) so you cant see, but my bum is smaller!
so here it is in numbers.......
starting weight 274 pounds
current weight 242 pounds!!!
*****32 pounds down******
92 pounds 'til I hit my goal... I got this!!
here I am last time I was about 150 pounds
that is a brownie lol working on getting rid of that flat belly!

what is with me?

what is with me lately I just cant seem to get motivated to finish a post, I start them and then something comes up, like cat puke on the rug, or Johnny waking up at 11pm just to chill for 2 hours... anyways I am going in for another fill 2-moro I hope this is the one that makes me feel like I have a band, because lately with 7cc in my 14cc band I don't really feel my tool lol I am still going strong with will power, but I feel like I would be losing better if I had my tool working with me...

I have been working on a 2 month update since my 2 month bandiversary lol and still it is not done, wtf am i waiting for, maybe I just wish I was able to report a better loss, or better after pics with a more noticeable difference -I guess I am just going to finish the dang post and let you guys be the judge, it is hard for me to tell cuz I see me everyday lol...

I have been fighting the urge to cut off all of my hair, I have beat the urge, my hair is here to stay (for now lol) but I am going to get it colored..

oh shit I almost forgot to mention my NSV's

ok, 1.) I can shave in the shower sooo much easier now
      2.) I fit in some of my pre pregnancy jeans
      3.) I am actually starting to feel smaller, like crossing my legs, sitting cuddled on the couch, etc. I feel pretty tiny sometimes (though I am farrrr from tiny lol lmao!)
     4.) getting Johnny into his car seat is a lot easier for me now, I am less in my own way!

I am enjoying these things...

well just know that the 2 month post is coming next and I swear on my cats life it will have pics... hope you are all rocking your bands...

I will leave you with this pic of me and Johnny a few weeks ago at the beach...

still losing..

the other day my mother was saying how I have to get back on track, but I have not gone off track I think that because I do not talk about how I am doing daily anymore and I do not talk about the great food choices I have been making she must have assumed I had fallen off the wagon, but I have not I am really doing great, I think I just do not talk about it because it is just my way of life now, and I am in the groove ( lol ) just going along eating right, eating little, and eating only when I am hungry not bored or just because it is lunch time or dinner time. I am happy that my mom noticed that I have not mentioned it much lately,  she is use to me maybe being on a diet and sneaking off and not talking about it anymore so I am happy that she is here for accountability, I cant just not blog for awhile she is here 2 town away so she will know when I am being bad haha, but I am happy to say I am still rocking my band doing it right and I am down another 4 pounds. so my weight now is 244 thank you very much lol ..... love ya Ma thanks for checking on me...  

lets see what else...
my hubby is still out of work...
my lil guy will be 2 years old in 3 weeks ( OMG!! )

sea sick...

first off, let me tell ya about my sea sickness, well that's what I call it, though I haven't been on a boat in a few years, how 'bout motion sickness... so since my first fill I have been getting so sick in the car if I am driving or riding for longer than 10 minutes- it is awful, we went to the beach yesterday it was about an hour away, sick on the way there but nothing like the way home OMG I was dying I had my husband pull over on the highway so I could throw up for the first time in like years... horrible feeling with the lapband weird and kinda thought my eyes were gonna pop out of my head but they stayed in thank God.. lol.  So I went in for my 2nd fill today and told the N.P about the motion sickness I have been having and she did a barium swallow everything was fine and she did see that the 4.2cc gave me no restriction, so yadda yadda yadda I now have 7cc in my 14cc band,14ccs? yes 14!! "mini wtf"  my surgeon uses 14cc bands on everyone IDK why... anyways they think the motion sickness is just some water in my ear or something, nothing to do with my lapband or my fill just a kawinky dink that it started the day of my 1st fill... hmmm.

so hubby is still out of work, no $ from unemployment yet, they have a max of I think $650 per week plus $25 per week for each child lets see how long we can live on that (not very) and don't get me started on the health insurance at $1500 per month.... but other than all that crap it has been good having him home, we have done a few things as a family that we would have never been able to do this summer if not for him being out of work, and Johnny is loving having him home, though he does miss his nana who usually visits a few times a week, but not when hubby is home, she loves my hubby just does'nt get down with the visiting while he is home thing, old fashion house wife thingy going on, she thinks I will be busy bringing slippers and cold drinks to him hahaha ya right silly nana lol...

Yard sale tomorrow , selling lots of crap to make more room in the cellar for my "gym" I hope I sell it all, I do not want to bring it back in the house once it is out lol... free shit here after 2pm 2-moro lol

hope you are all well, I have been trying to jump on here and there the past week but have been kinda busy, I am quite jealous of those of you going to BOOBS and I can not wait to be there next year!  I bought a dress I would love to fit in for BOOBS 2013 .

oh BTW I am still at 248 WTF... better than 249 or 250 etc....... at this rate I will never be wearing the for mentioned dress...

ok ladies time for some iced coffee with just a splash of kahlua ..... have a great long weekend ...

pics...and not much else.. lol

Since my husband was laid off we have been trying to do some things together that we usually don't have time for during the summer because he is usually soooo busy at work. I have been happy having him home with us during the day ( so far lol) today we tool Johnny to the Library to get a few books and a "kit" which is 4 or 5 books on a subject along with a puppet, a puzzle, a musical component, and a dvd or music cd, so  like we today got "the farm kit"  in it we got 5 books about farms, and pigs, and hens... etc.. also a pig puppet who is very awesome, a farm chunky puzzle, wooden egg's that you shake, he loves those they are the musical bit, and a cd with farm-ish kids music.. I really love that our Library has these kits for toddlers! next time we will get the "bear kit"...

so anyways we took Johnny to the playground after the Library ...... not much else going on, no weight gain, no weight loss just staying at 248... ??? maybe because it is my T.O.M maybe after that joyous gift I will see that maybe I lost  wouldn't that be nice...  ok ladies ... here are some pics of me and my lil guy today , oh my hubby may be in a few too :O)
