The amazing power of blogging.

Well here I was feeling like the worst bandster/blogger in the world and then I find there is a pattern and I am not alone!

I have spent any free time in the last couple of days catching up with blogs only to find that almost every one's weight loss has slowed down and stalled at some point and that almost everyone is blogging less. I can stop beating myself up now. (well just for a while, wouldn't want to break the habit of a lifetime)

Grace said it best when she said "When I blog, I am successful. When I don't, I am less successful." She is so right and So successful. One of the great things about blogging with fellow bandsters is to draw on the wealth of experience.

I am looking at the tickers of people banded at the same time as me and thinking I am not doing so well but I keep forgetting I have only had two fills since March. So its not too bad really. I have to think positively in order to get back on track.

I gave weight watchers a try but didn't do so well. I think its because given the choice, when I'm hungry I choose the unhealthy food that "slides" down rather than the healthy option that is hard work and painful. For example, last night I had well cooked chicken casserole but two bites in I was sick so I had the English equivalent to Cheetos for dinner! I need to get organised and make some healthy options.

I seem to be hungry all the time?
Anyway I am not going to whinge. I am going to try to have the attitude that every day is a new beginning.

On "new beginnings" I have an interview on Monday for a cosmetic company called Bare Escentuals. They are an American company who sell on line and on QVC. I am looking forward to the interview because there is no pressure as I already have a job. I really like the company mission statement and they sound like a good place to work so I will keep you posted on how it goes.

Happy Tuesday xxx


  1. Don't beat yourself up ---IS RIGHT!!! You have done very well!!! This is not a race this is FOREVER!!!

    Please remind me I said this later-


  2. FiFi, You are doing great... I was banded in March and I think I am getting my 3rd fill this month... i have been slacking off and making some bad choices so we'll see if it helps. Me, Kim, and Kristen(The Bama Boobs) got makeovers with Bare Escentuals in the mall when I visited Alabama last month. It was fun. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at BAND Camp...

  3. Don't beat yourself up, I've been awful for months. When I'm not doing great I don't blog and hardly read any blogs.

    Good luck for your interview, really hope that you get it!
