Just Another Tuesday

Well the Spring Challenge has officially begun!
I sent in my starting weight last night after work. I really am just so excited to see who wins! All the people in this Challenge are so awesome. I had to enter a night weight. I was at 302.8 last night. This morning I weighed in at 299.8! I love typing out that 2. It's so awesome! I can't wait to see every ones new lows!

People are starting to make hard plans for BOOBS 2.0! It's exciting to read that people are officially coming. So many of you have been an inspiration for me. From bandsters in to their second year or people just starting out. Everyone of you has imparted your own little piece of wisdom. I learn so much from all of you every day. I can't wait to see all of you who can make it :)

For the last 3 weeks I have been craving Chinese food like crazy!! Finally last night we had Chinese food for dinner. Pork fried rice, sweet and sour chicken and crab Rangoon! So freaking good! I was up .4lbs this morning overall, which isn't bad. So this morning I had the breakfast of champions! The 3 left over pieces of the sweet and sour chicken and a flat left over diet coke. yumm! For lunch I am having some left over pork fried rice. After today I think my Chinese food craving will be sufficiently taken care of.  Everyone once and a while just has to give into those cravings or you will just eventually loose control and binge to the extent your band will let ya. At least that's how I work. A little depravity makes the occasional splurge so much more enjoyable!

Also it is Fat Tuesday! Apparently there is some kind of polish doughnut that is really popular to eat on fat Tuesday around here. I don't even know if its just around here either. It sounded yummy though. Well have a great Fat Tuesday!


  1. Chinese food is my gateway food, if I indulge then it takes me about 2 weeks to get back on track. LOL.

    My husband & I have been making homemade baked crab rangoons, I've been thinking of posting the recipe on my blog. They are really good, a bit high in calories but better than the fried ones I'd suspect.

    I agree with you, it's unrealistic to think we will never have chinese food or whatever it is we crave ever again. It's okay to indulge once in a while, I like your attitude towards it!

  2. I hate Chinese food.

    You're in the 200's!!! Yeah!!!

  3. Yay! Yes, never having to see the 300's again is SUCH a good feeling! Congratulations! :)

  4. Congrats on the 200's!
    I LOVE Chinese food but I have not found any decent place here in Oregon (as compared to San Fran) Prolly a good thing :)
    I'm learning to make my own band friendly versions.

  5. Hi Shannon, thanks for your comment. Don't worry about me getting too much into ab workouts, weights etc... that's all pretty foreign to me! All I'm talking is situps/crunches etc, and my surgeon has given me the go ahead to start 3 weeks post-op, which is Friday. I'll take it slow! Good luck with the spring challenge!

  6. Yummy, Chinese. Don't tempt me Miss Shannon! LOL You know how easily swayed I am. ;)
