Ok...I was bad. I admit it. I bought one of those yummy bags of dried bread (like bagel chips) from our local bread store. SO good. I tell ya...the GOOD bread type stuff. You know? They are very well known and I missed bread SO much...and I thought the hard little bite size pieces would be OK if I added a little garlic spread. OH to die for yumminess!!!
Well...let me tell you...at almost 8 months out post op from RNY (july 20, 2011) BIG STINKIN' mistake. Yup...one little handful of those babies landed me in the bathroom immediately after I ate them. Saying HELLO to the porcelain goddess. Not fun. Runny nose...eyes...saliva...ok...you get the idea.
So, Lent you say? yup...what do I give up? CARBS! ALL of them. Ok...the white kind that still call my name with a vengeance!
On a more depressing note....we looked at another house today. WANT IT SO BAD! However, we also learned a few things today.
#1. We're poor!! what? really? I guess I never realized it! ha! I mean...in MY book, I have less than $8500 in debt, AND Own my cars....PLUS credit scores of 798 and 783. BUT....we're poor. HA HA HA
#2. We have to sell this house before we can even THINK about another one. Boo! Which means we will probably bring the price down to the absolute BOTTOM line. another boo.
#3. God throws things in my path to test me. For what? I'm still not sure, but I do know I'm learning to be more frugal...and thankful for what I DO have. I mean, I have a small but nice house, and can pay my bills...AND be a stay at home mom!!
So...I also got to visit w/ a new losers bench sister today (two actually!)!!!! Was very exciting! They both had RNY w/ my surgeon Dr. Featherstone. AWESOME!!! I won't name any names yet...but I'm very excited to be a part of their journeys!
Today I weigh in at 153.3 lbs. I am happy in a size 10 jeans...and large or med. top. I LOVE my Slimpression tank tops...they hold it in baby! I bought two for the price of one!
Ok peeps....no carbs. AND, I will count my blessings here in this little house....one, two, three....oh, those are the little stinkers and Mr. Eye Candy. Life is good.
