I'm behind in blog world, and although I did weigh myself on Saturday, this is the first chance I'm getting to post. I'm also way behind in reading posts, but I will catch up! Probably won't be doing a lot of commenting though, since I'm so behind.
I'm amazed that I actually lost weight since last weigh in. I only did things right 4 out of the 7 days, so I was expecting the same or worse. The holidays are completely over now, so no more excuses! I'm back on my game, eating better and exercising more. Still not getting as much exercise as I should, but more is better than none.
I have an appointment with my surgeon's office on 1/16 to get a fill. I can eat way too much food, and not just slider type stuff. At this point I barely feel a restriction, so I'm not getting the full benefit of my tool. Hopefully the fill goes well and I find a good restriction. I don't want to be too restricted and need an unfill like I've read so many bloggers have had.
Work has been stressful, and I'm trying to make sure I don't stress eat, like I usually do. Thankfully there isn't a lot of food around these days, other than the healthy stuff I bring in. At my work they tend to reward with food....take this survey and here is a candy bar, associate appreciation day have some cookies, let's have cake for this month's birthdays, etc. We have a wellness manager for the last year or so. I stopped him in the hall the other day and asked if anyone had said anything to him about our food reward system. He did mention that he tries to make sure they have healthy options along with the indulgences, but that I make a good point. I suggested that they give away pens, stress balls, or rewards points towards something instead. I know food is such a big part of our American culture, and it is also a huge part of our work culture, but something has to change. As a food addict I know if you put a candy bar on my desk I will eat it, whether I like it or not!
Okay, I've rambled enough for one post. Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
