Slightly down...in a bad way.

I've been kind of down lately...and not in the I've lost weight sense. No, no. I've gained, I'm pretty sure.

That's the bad thing about scheduling your surgery so far out...you know it's coming up, you know you are going to be making changes, so why not go balls to the wall now? And that's just what I've done. I know I'll be losing weight come Nov. 21, so until then I've been eating worse than ever before. For serious.

However, it has caught up with me. For the past 2 months, I've had a bag of Halloween candy in my office that I snack on whenever I want...Laffy Taffy, Nerds and SweetTarts. So, I had to go get blood work done last week to check my fats and she checked my sugars, too. They went skyrocketing, as did my fats. So, I must now be very very careful for the next month until she checks them again. If they don't go down, she's going to tell my bariatric surgeon the results and my surgery may have to be pushed back until these numbers can get under control. :(

The last thing I want is for my surgery to be pushed back so I'm really going to work hard at this. Let this be a lesson to all those who are considering surgery: don't think that just because you are PLANNING on having it you can eat what you want now. You still have to try to be healthy.

You are so right... Eating right is not easy at all.
Try starting small... months before my surgery I started to little things like cutting out soda, a month later alcohol, stopped using straws, and cut out caffeine. And even when I got off track with my diet (and by diet I simply mean what I was eating in general), I was already so used to not having those things that I behavior stuck. So just try making small changes and Im sure you'll be great!

Also, I read on LBT that your a self pay, and since my new insurance doesn't kick in until November I was wondering if you had heard of any good places to get a fill?

Sorry I'm just now seeing this, Alisha!

Hmmm, are you in ATL? If so, I'm not sure. I'm using True Results and they only do Lap Bands, so they maaaaaay do just fills, too!

I've kicked the booze, kicked fast food, now I just have to kick the diet coke and eating out and sweets. Ugh. I have a little over a month to go before the big day so here's hoping!

Thanks for the comment!
