So, I'm a day late but here it is. My weight loss to date is...
Just a .2 pound loss this week, but it's better than nothing (which is what I've been getting lately).
I had to work again today but had my hubby quickly take my monthly comparison shots before I left. Ready for this?

I know I said 'NO MORE FARMER'S TAN' for this year, and believe me, I've tried. However, the tops of my arms haven't seen the light of day in decades, so it's going to take some time for them to catch up to the bottom half. I'm working on it!
Notice the new size 12 pants are sagging a bit in the butt. Who would have ever thought that could happen. Not me. I come from the Butt Family, seriously!
I know I complain about my current plateau (a lot), so that's why it's good for me, and those of you who are also struggling, to do these comparison shots. I am reminded of how far I've come, as well as where I NEVER want to be again.
I've been meaning to mention for quite some time now that the BMI calculator states that I'm no longer 'obese'. Of course I'm still in the overweight category but as long as I'm out of the danger zone for co-morbid conditions, I think I can live with that. My doctor agrees.
After 10 months I can confidently say that exercise is a regular part of my daily routine. It comes as naturally as getting out of bed and brushing my teeth. That was a big goal of mine, and I'm there.
I can also say that after 10 months I have not conquered my food issues.
My brain is still a fatty. I still want to 'cheat', eat sweets, and still find myself wanting bigger portions.
I usually make the right choices and follow the rules, but I wouldn't trust myself without the band.
I'm hoping that will change over time.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Father's Day.
