57...and counting:)

I found myself doing a Bing Search tonight on how many calories in a bottle of Red Wine. LOL. Actually it is only 500, which is less than one margarita! Awesome!
I have been doing well, I have still enjoyed the holidays with some treats here and there, and a glass of wine more often than not, and I have managed to still loose a little bit and end the year 57 pounds lower than the day I started my Pre Op Diet. I will totally take it!
I hope that 2011 brings all of you a wonderful year as well as the number on the scale that you have been waiting to see. For me that number is 178. I am about 33 pounds away from that. Amazing to think I am only 33 pounds away from goal. Kinda scary, but amazing in the same. My son took a picture of me tonight and i was shocked that I didn't have to delete it before someone else took a look at it. That is wasn't the first in line with to remove the picture from the camera. That may be the biggest victory of this year:)

So I have been reading everyone elses posts about hitting a plateau, but in the past 4+ months I have not hit any nor have I really had any big issues with temptation. For some reason this week all of that is shot to hell.
I have been at the same weight all week, and have been so tempted. I ate a truffle today - not a big deal, but considering I have had no issues with tempation this is a huge deal. I want to eat. Everything. I want wine. Lots of it.
and I have 4 nights out next week, with friends and work parties so this is not a good time to be facing issues with temptaion.
I just got a fill 2 weeks ago, but I still can eat pizza and way to much food, so I think I may need another one.
Here is hoping I can make it through the week next, I can live with little to no loss, but I am praying for no gain!
I go home to my mom and dads (several states away) in about 6 weeks, I am hoping and praying to hit the 60 pound mark by the time I go. Here is hoping!!

50.....Hard to even believe it!

So, yesterday I hit 50 pounds! WHOOP! I have dreamed for 10 years about loosing 50 pounds and honestly up until a few months ago had believed that it would never happen. It has been harder than I thought (The band isn't magic, I still own what I put in my mouth) but I could not have done it without the band.
It has been 4 months and 3 days I have been banded and I believe it is the best decision I have ever made.
Hard to believe I am more than 1/2 way to goal! I wanted to loose 90 pounds in my first year, Hard to believe that I KNOW I will!
