Hey everyone; It’s been a long holiday season! I, like many of us, have been busy with family and festivities and haven’t lost much weight the last couple months. However, I also didn’t gain my usual 10-holiday-pounds! During my last check-up with Dr. Erickson and Patrice, I decided/agreed to add saline to my band. I was concerned with over-doing it during the holidays and so was Dr. Erickson.
So…here’s to the New Year and dedication to exercise and eating better. (It seems those 2 things never end.) I realize I could eat unhealthy foods and not gain any weight, but the whole purpose in having this procedure done was to lose more of my excess weight. To enhance my weight loss, I purchased fitness videos for yoga, 5 Mile Walk and Pilates, all of which I have tried. I found I am not very graceful and have lost most of my ability to stretch like I once could!
I continue to push on and make another attempt at my weight loss. At least with the band I don’t go hungry trying to lose weight; I just need to eat the right foods and commit to exercising at least 3 times a week. Spring isn’t far away so I need to focus on the next 100 days!
Here goes nothin’!
