Absent blogger...

Truth is I have just realised I am pretty slack at blogging! I LOVE reading everyone's blog and posting the odd comment here and there but when it comes time to actually post something, my mind just goes kinda tingly and blank. Do I have blogger's block? Does my subconcious know how uninteresting I really am? Maybe I should do some bloggers bullets just to let you know what's on my mind, maybe the words will come easier.....here goes!

  • I am in my 8th week of being banded (it's gones so fast!)
  • I have lost around 10kgs (22pds)
  • I don't think Portia and I are friends! Maybe when my weightloss starts to be highly visable I will appreciate her efforts more!
  • I am currently at the stage in previous weightloss attempts where I would sabotage myself. I have promised myself that I would not do this. It is hard. There are lots of temptations but I will remain strong!

My word for 2011 is RESPECT. respect myself, my body, my mind. it's about time...

Until next time!


  1. Love your word for 2011. I need to respect myself a lot more.

  2. You'll get through it! If it weren't hard none of us would have needed WLS intervention! You WILL get trough it! stay strong!

  3. Great word! Respect!
    I am about 4 lbs from my lowest weight in the last few years. I can not WAIT to get past that mark because frankly I've never done it before. I always did the same. Talk myself out of dieting further. Even when I lost 50 lbs. But this time it is different. I hope! :) Good luck to you!

  4. Yes, good word "respect" - Fight the urge to sabotage yourself - it will not be worth it

    Good job on loosing 22 pounds :)

  5. You are doing great and I know you won't sabotage yourself this time around. You've done something different, something that can offer you support when your motivation wanes with the band. It gets easier as you have more restriction. Just keep going for the fills.

  6. Good word choice :o) and don't let the self-sabotage thoughts in!!
