    July Butterflies Master Thread

    Hello everyone! It will be my 4th anniversary in 3 days! I can't believe it's been that long. I'm getting close to my goal -- this last year I made better progress than I had in the years 2 and 3 combined.

    On a more positive note, if I lose 7 more pounds I will finally get out of the obese category and simply be considered overweight.

    I had such a horrible band day yesterday. I accidentally sucked up a lemon seed through my straw at lunch and I think it must have gotten stuck. I PB'd right after lunch and felt a little better but then an hour later in the middle of a very important meeting with executives I had to run out of the conference room to PB again. After that I thought everything was fine until I tried to eat dinner. I had a couple of bites and got stuck again and PB'd for the next hour. In the 3 years I've had the band I've only PB'd 3 time previous to yesterday. Here's to hoping I can eat today without incident.

    Hey Ebony Rose -- one can always count on you to be friend. It's been ages since we last chatted. Can you send me your Facebook name so I can friend you there? I don't hardly get on here anymore.

    I don't really have appetite problems (as in getting really hungry and overeating). I do feel hunger from time to time but after a few bites of solid food I feel satisifed and ame fine. It's more the habits that is stopping the rest. For instance, I can eat a whole bag of microwave popcorn at night watching TV right before I go to bed. Usually that's 1/2 my caloric input for the day. I need to change those bad habits to lose the rest of the weight.

    Hi Kimaly. Congrats on your weight loss journey. You've done great. I hate this format too. Has anyone told Alex it's terrible and he needs to return it to be more user friendly?

    I wouldn't say pleased -- more resigned to realism. I don't think I'm even consuming a 1,000 calories a day but can't seem to really lose the weight. Overall since my lapband surgery I've lost approximately 40 lbs. I don't really fluctuate much so I'm maintaining the loss. I am hoping to lose 40 more lbs but my doc said the band has done all it's going to do and the rest is up to me. I think I need to start back on the exercise program. How have the rest of the Butterflies been doing on their journey now that it's been 3 years?
  10. How are you? It's been ages. Hope you are doing well.

    Ebony/Beth -- sorry about your current/past work situations. Hopefully you'll both get into better situations soon. I had an inept, incompetent boss once for 6 weeks. That was all I could take before I told her Buh Bye and walked out. Beth and CC -- WTG! I've been on a complete stall for the past month or so. *sigh* G'nite all.

    I've been spending a lot more time on facebook lately. Everything is good here. My weight loss on the other hand has been at a stall for 3+ weeks.

    Ditto to everything you said. Yes. He looked like he was at least 75. Actually, I thought they did well considering they did this in 16 weeks (most of it at home). Joelle lost 82lbs and Carla lost in excess of 100 lbs. Even though I'm not a fan of Joelle, I thought she looked very lovely tonight. I was so disappointed she didn't win. She so deserved to win.

    Just driving by to say I'm still alive. I'm not even going to attempt to catch up on all th postings. ColoradoChick -- sorry to hear about the cutback. I hope once things improve, they remember to reward you for the cut back and the lost Fridays.

    Just dropping by to say hello to my butterflies. Like some of you, I've been on a sugar/chocolate kick lately and consequently have been stalled on my weight loss. I am just fluctuating back and for with 2-4 lbs.

    Actually I did technology free weekend starting Thursday evening. It was great and I really needed to do it because it helped me break the strangle hold of FB addiction. It still has a hold, but it's not strangling me so much. :drool: Susan - glad to hear the health issues are starting to get diagnosed properly and treatment plan going into action. I'm definitely a "reward" eater. Lately, I've been on a chocolate kick with the consequence of complete stall on the weight loss. *sigh*

    Kirstin's gone, yay! I dislike her much less now that I don't have to watch her ugly facial tics and listen to her whiny voice every week. As for Mike jumping on his dad for being fat and not doing anything about it to help the kids -- c'mon, why did we all get fat and why weren't we able to get thin? There's no acceptable answer -- we got fat because we ate more calories than we burned and if your children are fat, it's because they ate more calories than they burned. Is it the parents' fault? Yes. Is there any answer that will make a difference? No. The past is the past and you can only work on the now and take it one meal, one day at a time. As much as I dislike Ron, his answer is truly irrelevant.
