Back to the grind

My mom just left from Boston back to AZ and tomorrow I head back to work full time.  As I said in my last post, I’ve been feeling a lot better, thank God!  In the same sense, my appetite is back in full swing. Oy vey.  Back to hungry ol’ Tina.

Not to mention, I’ve gained a little over 10lbs since having the band removed! 10, yes 10!! I mean, my body to go through a great deal of distress, confusion and survival mode tactics for a 5 weeks or so, so I suppose it’s understandable-ish.  BUT, that doesn’t excuse the fact that I need to continue going down, not up.

That being said, I’ve been thinking about which new (aka old) program I’m going to re-try to begin losing weight the old school way… yet again.  I was thinking Weight Watchers, Atkins or Food Lovers Fat Loss.  And the reasons I’ve decided to retry the Food Lovers Fat Loss system yet again are because many of the theories stuck with me and for lack of better words, made sense.  The eating every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism going, the science and rationale around the glycemic index… it all made sense.  That and the fact that ~$120 was spent on that damn program and I still have all the pieces and parts… so what the hay, why not?

Now in with this program, it’s 21 days… and I might extend certain days, because I have a bachelorette party, my dad coming in and my mom coming in all in between.  I’m not using any of those as excuses to go off the program, but I may need to turn Day 11 into a 2 day event, etc.  That being said, here we go.

I’m going to ‘attempt’ to vlog about each day’s learnings to keep it fresh and keep me accountable, so we’ll see how this goes.  I knowww I can hear all the groanss… not anotherrr vlog, Augustinaaaahh.  But whatevz, I dislike typing (sometimes) and am getting carpal tunnel, like everyone else! hahaa

In short, I see myself slowly creepin back into my old ways and I will have none of it!

I’m still in shock from all this band nonsense… but the show must go on, right?

Pray for meeeee. 🙂

      Thank you, I’ve recently been senarhicg for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the source?|What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

    I think it’s great that you’re starting back up with a program that you know works for you. That being said, Weight Watchers is an AMAZING program and the ONLY program I have found that actually works for me. It’s also a program that I know I can maintain for long periods of time. Remember to think of this experience as a lifestyle change, not a DIET. You need to change your lifestyle, not go on a temporary diet only to be thrown aside once you get to where you want to be. If you want to check out more about Weight Watchers, I’d be happy to chat about it with you!

      Heyyy! I might hit you up regarding WW. I did it back in the day before the 360 or the points plus and it worked out. I might end up doing that againn, but just want to see how this time around with the Food Lovers Fat Loss system works. But thank you again for the support and best of luck to you on your journey! :))

    hey girl,

    Rule one is never put yourself down. None of the band issue was your fault. Remember how we talked in class about falling down and just picking ourselves right back up. Well that is what we are going to do.

    I have been reading alot about juicing as it is something i want to do once I am able. I have also been following this guy called The Raw Chef. He is amazing. Look him up online. His foods are all natural foods.

    keep me posted on how your doing. you are in my thoughts and prayers sweety.
