I never wrote that two year bandiversary post I promised. I'm not sure why. Maybe because I'm not that far off, number-wise, as I was a year ago, and I feel bad about that. Sometimes I feel like a fraud or a failure, because I've gained weight back with the band. We're not supposed to do that, especially not us "success stories." But I'll tell you, life comes at you. I had a tummy-tuck, and it wasn't the pain that was hard, nor the swelling, the bruising, it was the stagnancy. It was sitting for two months without real exercise or fill in my band. I couldn't do it without my tools. And I gained. And it's been really slow to get back on track. My body doesn't like to lose the pounds between 175 and 150. It took me almost a year last time. I'm not going to let it take a year again. I've got 5lbs down - yes, back to 170 now, and 20 to go. 15 that I've already lost before, and 5 I know I can get off. I am no longer living in a world of make believe - I know what I looked like when I weighed that. I looked better than I do now. This time with a flat stomach. If it weren't so fricking hard I might even be excited bout it!
Sorry this has been so depresso... here is a beach pic from Malibu!
