Look how messy my bathroom is!

I wrote about my little tee-shirts the other day.  Here I am in my spaghetti-strap tee shirt that I wear under tight fitting shirts:





And here I am with my shirt over the tee, looking practically lump free!

Thank you for not judging me based on how messy my bathroom counter is!

Today was weigh-day and I hit a new low! 167.2 lbs. (75.8 kg.).  That is just .4 lbs. (.18 kg.) from my last lowest low, but 2.2 lbs. (1 kg.) from my weigh-in last week when I was up a bit.  So yeah!

I've been tracking my food using My Fitness Pal after several of you recommended it.  I think I am resigned to having to track my food for the rest of my life or risk re-gaining.  Even though I feel like I am staying on-track when I don't write things down, I always seem to experience trouble at the scale so I guess I'm a tracker.  Oddly I didn't have to write things down most of the time I was losing.  This is more of a maintenance thing for me.  My Fitness Pal is kind of fun to use so I am okay with it for now.

I was thinking this morning about things I can no longer do since being banded.  I can't usually sleep on my left side without hearing a bunch of gurgling.  If I burp, the gurgling stops for awhile, but it comes back.  I don't like to sleep on my back so I pretty much have to sleep on my right side.  Annoying, but better than weighing 280 lbs. (127 kg.).

So how about you?  Is there anything you can no longer do?  Foods you can't eat?

That tee shirt looks great on you! I am back up to 162/163 beause of all the fluids pumped in me, so you are super close to me. Sorry I am a little loopy now from the Vicodin. I really shoudn't comment while goofy, huh?

You look great!!

I need to be careful with acid foods ..oranges, wine,cheese,tomato sauce etc......sometimes I can partake, others times not.

You look amazing and the T-shirt is cool. I have not been banded so I could still pretty much eat what I want. I have to keep up with every bite that goes in my mouth. Keep up the good work. Congrats on the loss.

You look amazing! As usual. I think the strappy t-shirts will be a main wardrobe staple when I get down. : )

I don't have anything yet that I cannot do or eat as I'm still a newbie (10 weeks today!). I am careful with everything and nothing has given me a problem yet.

Vegetables and other food items with skin are out for me.

You look fantastic in those jeans!!! Wow!

Linda said...

Look how skinny you look! I agree that a layer under really helps smooth things out.

MandaPanda said...

I haven't lost as much as you so I haven't found anything I can't do yet outside of things like "eat a whole pizza."

You are looking so thin!!!!

Skinny minney! I might need to go get one of those shirts, I've got me some bulges. *shudder*

I think I might have to be a tracker, too. Sadface. I've been bouncing up and down lately and it's no fun. :(

the spaghetti strap isn't a tank top? Is it a smoothing type of shirt?

you look great! I wish I had the attention span to log food but I only do it if I see a gain.

I am totally doing my best to avoid habitually tracking, but I suspect it's coming and I just haven't come to terms with it.
