Sooo here is the deal.. with myself.

First off....Please don't think that I am bi-polar people! ;) LOL!! I tend to change my mind a lot...But I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and as much as I would really love to have lap band surgery I have been thinking "Can I do this by myself?!"
Where is this all coming from, you may ask?, Well from my previous posts I have been thinking about the pros and cons of the surgery. The pro's include:
1. Loosing weight
2. Feeling full/satisfied
3. Able to keep off the weight by help of fills

1. Having a device in my stomach possibly for life.
2. Slippages/errosions/PB'ing and all the other negative effects of the band
3. Having to get an injection for the fills
4. Slow weight loss.(This is not really a con but I can do this with dieting and exercising by myself)
5. Not taking Ibuprofren(ADvil) Which is my cure all med esp. for my Aunt Flo's
6. No SODA!!!! Which I will be cutting out but I occasionally would like a Cherry Coke every other month or so for a treat :/
7. No Alcohol.. which I really do not drink like that but I enjoy my occasional martini or long island iced tea.

I feel like I have the motivation to work out/exercise on my own and do it. Well I have made little and small deals with myself... Here they are..

First 25lbs:

This will be my first motivation to loose my first 25lbs.. which I am hoping to achieve by the time I have my appt. for my pulmonologist. I may still keep that appt but I will at least be down 25lbs! :)

For 50lbs:

A trip to the Hershey Spa, in Hershey, PA!!! YAY!!!! My DH actually made this a gift from him when I reach this goal. I have been wanting to go here for the longest.. Just never had the time.. Now I have it as a goal to work towards!! YAY!!

Now in total I would like to loose 100lbs. So I have to come up with goals for my 75lb mark and of course the big 100lb mark.. I will have to think about this.. In between my 50lb to 75lb Im pretty sure that I will need to go clothes shopping spree, so we shall see..

As far as activities and food,I will be working out everyday and changing of course my diet. I would love to start by doing any 5K. I would possibly walk my first time and work my way up to a run! Im so excited to start.. I wonder how long it will take me to reach my gaol!? hmmmmm...

I plan to purchase more healthier choices by paying attention to more veggies, fruits, proteins, less sugars, and TONS of water..

Some Items that I would like to purchase sooner than later include:
1. A Bike
2. New running/cross training sneakers.. (New Balance or Asics)
3. Weight Watchers Scale or something similar..
4. Get my gym membership back.


  1. Only you know what is best for you. Whether or not you get the band I will be here to keep an eye on you and offer encouragment (I hope). Great motivation ideas though. Take care.

  2. Thans Tanya!! I will need as much encouragment as I can get!:)
