When I don't blog, you can rightfully assume I'm off the wagon

I mentioned to someone today at our bandster brunch, that when I'm not blogging here, it pretty much means I'm off the wagon. When I'm on the wagon, I'm much more tuned in. I do check in and read others blogs, but when I'm doing badly, beyond a post or so, I don't usually want to acknowledge that. Denial is just easier.

So I'm making myself blog and engage with the whole weight loss thing. Since all I really want to do right now is sleep and eat more of the Christmas cookies I made.

As I mentioned previously, tomorrow afternoon is the work cookie swap I organized. Tomorrow is also my fill day in the morning. I'm not sure how those two things will go when happening on the same day. I'll check in then and let y'all know how i handle the cookies being on liquids. It's going to be a bit obvious if I don't eat given that I organized the darn thing!

I'm absolutely looking forward to the fill though. It's been too long. I just hit a point where it's no longer free (after 3 months), so I was putting it off.


  1. omg. i'm the same way! i just don't want to talk about it. glad to know i'm not the only one!

  2. I think I am the same way, which is why I promised myself I would type out everything I ate during this pre-op.

    As far as the cookies, if it is easier, say something like you have to take a blood test tomorrow or something, if you want to. Or say you had a big lunch, and make a plate of cookies to "take home" and either take them home or hand them off to someone on the street.

  3. Good for you for doing a post even if you feel a bit off the wagon. Getting a fill is another step in the right direction. Good for you.

  4. Heather.. posting is very therapeutic.. you get those feelings out, no guilt, and you reset yourself for the next day. It is also helpful for us readers as we can relate to everything you post and just validates that this bandster thing is a journey, with twists and turns in the road, but we will all eventually get there.. keep posting!!
