You Versus the Scale

Well, I didn't throw out the leftover cookies on the plate and it was a good thing. Some friends came for dinner last night and they enjoyed snacking on those cookies and candies. Now I will get rid of what is left. I can highly recommend the LapBand for anyone out there who has been fighting their weight for a period of time. It is a tool that truly helps you control your hunger and when properly adjusted keeps you on track. This time last year I was thinking of nothing else but having the LapBand surgery. I didn't have a date for that surgery yet but I knew I would very soon. This year when it comes time to make New Year's Resolutions, losing weight won't be my primary resolution. It is a given. I did get some deals at Macy's yesterday. I bought myself 3 sweaters and some new sheets for our bed. I washed them when I got home and they are so soft. I plan to put them on the bed today. They also had their bra sale going, where you buy 2 and get 1 free. I got 3 of them also. When I showed hubby my 3 sweaters he said, " did they have any others you liked?" He liked the ones I bought. Isn't he sweet? Our Macy's is very small, I think of the Macy's in New York City and this is like one department compared to it. But it's a small town without that many people so that makes for less mechandise needed so I guess it will have to do. I can always drive to a larger town with a bigger mall. I love our little town. It is supposed to be a rainy weekend here.

Oh my... It sounds like you had yourself a real good day!
I need some new sheets too, but I'll have to order them through JCPenny, as we just can't get the quality over here.

Congratulations on the weight loss! You GO GIRL!!!

At least you have a Macy's! I would love, love, love to have one near me!

Yes, Thank God for our Lapbands! We no longer have to make resolutions that will not go unmet.
Cookies be damned!
We're winning the battle....together!
Thanks so much for being such a great blogger and Lapband friend!

I went 2 years ago to try to have gastric bypass by our insurance wouldn't cover it. I was so upset. I wonder if they would cover the lap band. It doesn't hurt to try. It sounds like you got some great deals. Have a great Sunday. Hugs

Glad you had a good day with the shopping and the visit with friends. It is always nice to have something new and some people to share cookies with too!
Have a good Sunday!

I am proud of you and your weight loss. Me? I just set low goals and meet them a little at a time. I hate the D word so I just try to adjust portions and eliminate really bad stuff and snacks. Glad you found some bargains.
Hugs, Joyce
