Happy Monday!

I am so tired. I could curl up on my desk and fall asleep. I took a Tylenol PM last night for the first time in ages. I used to take them every night, but I haven't been taking them for a few months. After the first few nights, I found I sleep just fine without them except for perhaps two or three nights a month. Last night I fell asleep without issue, but I woke up when my fella came to bed and then lied there for 40 minutes and finally got up and took a pill. I guess I'm paying for it now!

My daughters are off at camp. This is the first year my youngest has been able to go. I'm not used to being without them. It is weird. I miss them a lot already. I know they're having fun and will come home safe and dirty on Wednesday with stories of all the fun they've had.

We stopped for pizza on the way home from dropping them off at camp yesterday. I love pizza so much. It is without question my favorite food. I love that my lap-band allows me to eat it and I especially love that one piece is all I can handle. Pre-band I would easily eat three pieces plus a salad bar salad dripping with dressing. I might eat four pieces if I thought no one was looking. A salad and four pieces of cheese pizza is at least 1,300 calories. That's just one meal. I love that my lap-band lets me eat the foods I want, but keeps the portions small so I can still lose weight.

Yay for the band! It is great to be able to still have the things we love, just a little less! <3

I so agree with you - it's taken the stress out of times when when eating out seems to be all we do for several days. It doesn't matter, because the band doesn't let me have much anyway... (as long as I avoid the icecream that is).

Pizza is definitely in my top 3 and the band still allows me to eat it. I almost wish it didn't.
Get a good night's sleep tonight mama.

mmmmm..I love my pizza too Amanda! I seem to be able to eat one slice less the crust. That doesn't go down too easy!

Get some sleep tonight and don't worry about the girls, they are having a great time!

One of the many things I love about the LapBand! A good healthy lifestyle SHOULD include any food you want to incorporate, in moderate portion sizes. Guess we're learning that the hard way, right??

Michelle said...

Yep I remember those days of eatting 4 pieces of pizza and a salad and some wedges. I hope when I'm able to eat sold food again my stomache will accept pizza.

Surgery is next week for me -- Hoping that when it's all said and done, I can still eat pizza. Not my favorite food, but I do like it a lot!

Get some sleep!

Pizza was never a fav until the band. Its one of the few take outs that will go down and I can only eat one piece minus the crust so its all good. Yay for the band.

My daughter has been in TN at the grandparents for the whole month of July and I rally miss her, so I know how you must be feeling. Just know they are having a great time and how big their smiles will be when they come back!
