    Exercise And Hair Care

    Exercise and Hair Care I walk 4-5 miles Mon-Fri mornings with Leslie Sansone’s Walk away the Pounds series. Since my goal in 2012 is no relaxers I’m currently wearing a sew-in which I do over “my-self” every 3 weeks or so. I pull it in a high pony tail and get to working out. I make sure that I wash (clarify) and deep condition my hair when I do the sew-in over. How are you guys doing it?

    You are new to the process, just remember the scale is not your friend, the measuring tape is lol. I gain weight periodically throughout the month for instance is it close to your "TOM" if so the weight gain could be water retention. Don't panic if you are eating right and exercising the weight will come off.... the key is to stop watching the numbers Follow me on Twittwer @myworldalc

  12. Is there anyone else that notices that when they are stressed out mentally, physically or upset that your band seems to be tighter?

  18. My Surgeon’s office just asked me to come in for a Photo Shoot, the want to have my before and after pictures on their new website. I’m so excited! They also asked that I write a testimony that they can use as well! Although I’m a little nervous about the before picture they may use lol!

    If the band does its part, I?ll do mine!

    Okay I’m writing this because I’ll get my band one week from tomorrow and I’ve subconsciously be worried about being a failure. What if it’s doesn’t work? What if I gain the weight back and more? What if…what if…. What if? Then I found my-self looking for posts from others who have had their bands removed for various reasons. Well enough of that. My surgeon told me realistically what I could expect from my band 60-65 percent of my excess weight which means that since I’m about 130 lbs overweight I could expect to lose 70-80lbs. That is 70-80lbs less that I weigh now which would put me somewhere around 190lbs. Now to some that is still a lot of weight but for me it’s a lot less than that 279lbs. What I’m saying is I don’t expect to come out of this wearing a size 2 however if I can get to 10-12 that would be great. I willing to work my butt off for that 10-12 and it the band does it s part, I’ll do mine. There is no point of doing this If I’m not going to follow the rules, eat right and exercise. Anyway no more negative post reading for me I’m getting me band, I’m going to let it help me and I will be a success. You anti-banders will have one less person to listen to your rants sorry. Good Luck everyone
