Kicking head hunger in the A$$~!

So far in my WLS journey, I've had a pretty easy time of it. I'm almost afraid to type that in case I curse myself, but it's true. I've lost weight really consistently in the four months since surgery and have been really motivated. I never imagined I'd be down more than 60 lbs. by this stage in the game.

I haven't even really had any major cravings. At least not until this weekend. All of the sudden, I wanted to eat! This coincided with my lap-band being somewhat looser than it has been. Which I actually consider a good thing. I've discovered I don't like being super tight. I like being able to eat without getting stuck. But I digress. I had to struggle not to overeat this weekend and I'm happy to say I made it through without any major issues.

I am doing my first 5K on Sunday, July 4th. Hope I'm ready!
