Back to work

Wednesday I went back to work for the first time in 4 weeks.  Wow, it felt like I never left!  I can't believe I was gone a whole month, it went so quick.  Everyone was very sweet welcoming me back with decorations in my cube and flowers.  Then, the comments.  "You look great".  "I can't believe how good you look".  Etc.  I am horrible with compliments....standard fat girl thing.  Most everyone knowing I went out for lap-band surgery just makes things worse.  I feel like they expected me to come back like I was at the Biggest Loser.  I can't even believe them when they say I look good, even though I know in my head they mean it!  Wow, so many issues, so little time.

At least so far my food at work has been working out.  I've been planning pretty well and packing my food and making sure I'm eating every few hours.  Also getting lots of water. 

Since I made it under 300 the other day I've decided to weigh myself only once a week instead of every day.  At least for now.  I can't stand the idea of the disappointment if I fluctuate back to 300 the next day.  Hopefully when I weigh myself on Saturday I'll be under 300.  Keeping my fingers crossed!


  1. I wish I was taking 4 weeks off. I am taking a week and a day...hopefully I won't need more than that. I don't do well with the compliments myself...don't know what to do about that.

  2. WOW four weeks, how great for you. I took off five days. LOL But I did great!

    I am glad you are planning meals for work, I had and still do head hunger when I am working. And with all the food around our office, it can be hard. Planning helps with all of that!

  3. Hope that 'twoterville' number stuck! And don't worry about the weight too much right now...Bandster Hell (before enough fills/good restriction) will end and you'll have the help you finally need!

  4. 4 weeks!? Lucky lady!

    I have always had issues with compliments! I have this little voice that says that people are lying or only being nice. One day I think it will get better!

    But I look at it like this! One day, when I am at my goal, people will forget I ever was the "big" girl and the compliments will stop. So I better lap them up now! :)

  5. Glad your first day back went well. It does take a lot of planning, but it's work it!

  6. Miss you... And I know you'll be under 300 Saturday. As for me, lets hope I'm under 400... LOL. I am joking, I am not gaining weight... and I've been dancing my ass off. Things are good here, I have been eating out alot lately... so I am hoping I am keeping under my calories. TTYL, *M*
