I think I lost my butt

This Pic was back in Aug when I still had boobs.
I am down 52 lbs . The changes to my body are really showing now. The boobs are long the belly is long, the muffin top is still their, bat wing arms and a flat butt. But I feel incredible about my progress. My NP said there is no time limit on this journey as long as I keep moving, Good one to remember.
I have been keeping track of what I eat a bout 50% of the time and I have only walked 2 times in 2 weeks. But I did walk today in the snow. How come when I loss lbs I am more motivated to do the right things and when I am at a stand still I am very lazy, wait I think I just answered myself, Da.
My band is pretty tight and I like it. I am not getting hungry as often but I do eat about 4 times a day but really small amounts 1/2 cup. My fave are beans, all kinds of them. I can still eat bread most of the time if it is toasted. Had a bad PB followed by full vomiting the other night. Chinese food :( ate too fast and out it came, you would think I would know better after 9 mo. Still learning and everyday is different with the band.
I think I will get my nose pierced for my reward when I lose 60 lbs.

I am doing the band dance. 50lbs gone!

It's been a long time coming but I am down 50 big ones this morning. I am back on track. I went to a support meeting last night and am always glad I did. It dose help keep me motivates. Got a good idea for eggs. One of the ladies at the meet said she uses large shredded wheat and dips them in egg and cooks them in a nonstick pan, flatting them as they cook and eats them like pancakes, I think I may try this.

Back in the saddle

Well its been awhile. 3 mo. I definitely hit a stand still. The holidays kicked my ass.(I gained) I was looking at my last post and did not make that goal but I am 1 lb away from 50 lost. I have been able to eat almost anything, 6in open face Sub way and pretty big bits. No PB"s, no sticking. Last week I started writing down every thing i was eating and that really helped. Yesterday my best friend Band (still do not have a name for her)decided to remind me she is still there. It took me 30 min to eat 1/2 a 7oz Lean Cuisine. I believe that it how it should be, right? Usually it only take me 15 to eat almost all of one. I have a n appointment with my PA next week, I was sure I would get a small fill, but we will see how the nest few days go. I am down 1.5 lbs this week. And got in a size 14 pants and XL top this week. I started in 20"s and 3X"s. I am cleaning out one of my bed rooms and setting up my Wii and a DVD player to exercise. I have found I will not do it in my living room. I got a Dirty Dancing DVD and it is fun I just don't want anyone to see me try the moves. Its pretty funny. I have to get in shape for the hikes I am going to do this summer with my son.
