LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Tuesday, January 31, 2012


So is it me that seems to be sick a lot? Ever since I have had the band put in place it seems like I'm sick every other month or so. I don't get it. I am currently taking Alka-Seltzer Day time cold meds in the day and night time at night just so I can sleep. I am really tired of getting sick. Any of my fellow lap-banders experience this? I also thought maybe due to the things I do eat maybe my immune system isn't as good since I dont get all the nutrients needed? I dunno...

Anyway thanks for reading my rant..

Eff Jillian Michaels

So um yea, I started the 30 day shred and did it for a few days and um no. Just no. My legs were shaking and I could hardly sit down. I know "no pain no gain" but good lord I'm just too damn big for all that jumping around nonsense. I need to get something with less impact on my joints before I go ahead and do this 30 day shred nonsense lol I need to get on CL and look for a cheap elliptical like I had originally planned on.
So this is me yesterday:
I feel like I look so much smaller in pictures than I do in person. I can hide my tummy well. That is the ONLY part of me I have. My stomach. I wish i could just cut it off and Id be okay... Thanks for listening to me vent..

One year


Well here it is! One year since I've been banded! A full year. Well what do i say? In this year I have learned so much about me. And boy with just 57 lbs lost, I have transformed so much. I look at old pictures and I am EMBARRASSED that I ever allowed myself to get so big. Only a few more pounds until I get under the 200 mark. I have started exercising and walking a bit more. Drinking more water. I had an adjustment on Monday. Since the adjustment i totally feel the difference in how much I can eat. I am loving it. Hopefully in 8 weeks there will be a big loss! *crosses fingers*

So I will be heading to Atlanta in February to get more ink from Melvin. I can not wait.. some more Loveless on my body! I think that's the only thing I really get excited about other than seeing the scale move lower, is the anticipation of getting to Atlanta and getting tattooed. Gonna go home and book my flight if the flight is still $167 like it was last night.

Welp the ticket wasnt $167 but I am still headed that way.

My question to you, whoever reads my blog,
 What advice would you have given yourself before you have whatever WLS you had?


BYOC - Tuesday Edition

BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy! 5 little questions we answer to give our blogging brains a break and to get to know each other better. Copy and paste to your own blog and enjoy!

1. If money and time wasn't a problem - name a place you'd go on vacation and for how long?

I'd go back to Atlanta, I mean I do want to travel and see more than just Atlanta but for NOW?! Yep, visit and get more tattoos. I'd probably just stay 2 weeks. Anything more I'd be tired of it.

2. This week I had a discussion with some friends about names our children or other people we know call the "nether regions". Don't hate - it's funny. So let's share them for a laugh. Any creative words for hoohaa and tallywhacker you think we haven't heard yet

I'm not very creative for naming those types of things. I just use Vag and Peen, very kid like LMAO

3. Take a picture of your nails right now! Bossy, aren't I? I just had my nails done - I can't help it. I neeeed to show someone!

Ew no! My nails are horrid! I just removed my fake nails and they look like who did it and why?!

4. Tell me about the weather right now where you are!

Our weather in So Cali is crazy right now, it was raining yesterday, today its sunny and beautiful!

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in real life and blog land.

Real life: My life is full of work and kids. I am trying the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and well, i have done like 4 days lol My body is so sore its hard to do it the next day :( I guess i just gotta suck it up and do it!

Blog life: I wish I had more things to say in my blog, I start a blog and then I decide to "finish later" which never gets done. Blah
