Mother's Day Goal...Did I make it?
bandster buddies gave me to cope with an almost too tight band. I want to stick it out and see what happens to the tightness factor as I lose some weight this next week. After six months of mostly no restriction, I am very reluctant to not take advantage of this situation. I believe in another week to ten days, I should be at a good level of restriction. So hard to gauge though... It's an interesting spot to be in. I don't want to stay like this past two or so weeks though if it doesn't loosen up...the whole point of the band is to be an aid to developing a healthy lifestyle, not a prison warden that keeps you in solitary confinement. I'll give it another two weeks and reevaluate. I don't feel weak or tired from the decrease in caloric intake but on an ongoing basis the nutrient shortage can really mess up one's body. I want to be losing but I won't compromise my overall health for the sake of losing pounds faster...I checked...there's no prize for losing the most pounds the fastest...oh, wait...there is...very saggy skin...lol...just joking a bit. It's true though...it took years to get to this point, why are we so down on ourselves when we realize it takes hard work and time to get back in shape and have a healthy body. Ah...life...it's such an uncharted sail sometimes.
