Oh dear, it was a bit of a chocolate frosted weekend. I dunno about you guys but having restriction is GREAT!
O my gosh did you like EVER think you would hear me say that after 4 years of whinging about how rubbish this band is?
This weekend I felt like murder. I was post menstrual - goodness only knows why - and in need of crap to eat. I ate two large bags of minstrels (Caroline - we share that passion!), a couple of bottles of wine, 10 packets of quavers, a few packets of crisps, a curry, a Chinese and to top it off - rice and sauce - the yummy fermented bean sauce I love that's like 1000 cals a teaspoon! I was proper bloated on Friday and Saturday and Sunday. Mmmmm Yummy.
So after this spectacular fall from grace I was a little wary of the scales... so I hopped on just for laughs this morning. 117.3kgs HEEE HEEE!!! Exactly the same thank goodness! I am taking that and running with it.
I delved into this conundrum a little more - you know the one:
Eat dross, stay the same weight/lose weight
This is a common thread which I can never seem to grasp. I plugged in all my calories into Livestrong.com and came up with an interesting fact.
I ate less than 2500 calories each day!
Because of the band, although I wouldn't want to do it all the time, I ate a load of crap and was still under my calorie goal.
I am not going to lie, my eating is pretty rough sometimes, but I am glad that I now know that Albert is helping me with damage limitation. I went to bed full as a stuffed feather pillow. I could not possibly have eaten anything else. It just wasn't possible for me to over eat at the weekend!
So ladies... this is what it's like to have a lapband huh? I like it!
Anyway, after 3 days of bingeing on junk foods, this morning my mouth feels like Ghandi's flip flop and I am craving salad and water and fruit (some chance!) and water and veg and water. Water mainly! I am off to the gym later so have a great monday everyone!
