Normally, I wouldn't be posting in the middle of the day since I would be chained to my desk (or steering wheel) trying to save the world from certain doom. However, today I can post because yesterday I was lucky enough to have 4 very large, rooty teeth yanked out of my head.
So today I am puffy, nauseous and bitchy all rolled together into a delightful little ball. Poor TFG.
I wouldn't normally share this picture, since it's enough to scare small children, but seriously, check out my face! It's huge, and I can't even get a spoonful of yogurt in there with out slopping it everywhere. Grrr.
On a positive note, perhaps this tooth thing will prompt some weight loss as I seem to be drifting dangerously close to that 200 lb mark again. It doesn't seem like that long ago I weighed 230 lbs... it also doesn't seem like that long ago I weighed 153 lbs. Bah... how did I gain 40 lbs in 8 months? Also, since I decided to have the band surgery I seem to be suffering from Last Supper Syndrome. Except, my surgery is still a month away. So, I'm trying to get this problem back in check by practicing the habits I will need to use with Slimband. Eating frequent small meals, eating slowly, chewing a bunch, not drinking with meals. I wish I could say I'm hitting it out of the park, but at least I'm trying. :-)
Oh and a huge shout out to JRD over at Canuck BANDit Musings for calling my blog sassy and linking it on her page. I was so excited to discover I have 5 followers this morning. Thanks you guys! I am so happy I discovered this online community and the information I've found here has been a thousand times for helpful than the Slimband page- which is just full of colorful marketing propaganda. You are all inspirational and it's been a joy to blog stalk you for the last 4 months... and now it's an even bigger joy to not blog stalk you, and be a friendly, social blogger.
