A Quick Update

Ahh, I have been absent for too long.  Sorry Blogland.  My schedule has just been hectic, and I took a blogging break.  I also don't have much to report.  I am off to Prague in 40 minutes and am (almost) packed, so here is a little update from me. 

Last weekend I was lucky enough to meet up with Lap Band Gal during her visit to London.  We had a great time catching up over coffee/tea, and I was thrilled to meet such a successful bandster (NOTE, Lap Band Gal is also an amazingly enjoyable person to spend time with)!  Thanks for carving some time out of your very busy weekend to see me:)

That evening Kenny cooked me Valentine's Day dinner.  He has about ZERO ability in the kitchen, so I was pleasantly surprised that he prepared a wonderful meal-- cheese and crackers to start, a Greek salad, seared swordfish, sauteed spinach, and Whole Foods desserts.  Good job Kenny:)

This week I have been gymming a lot, but my weight is still all over the place.  Part of it has to do with the fact that I was a bottomless pit last week.  Part of it is probably due to the muscle I am building with Body Pump and Spin.  Still, if this eating keeps up, I will certainly be visiting Dr. K next month.  I don't use my band to control my portions, but I do think I am feeling hungry before I should.  Oh well... I have until March 16 to figure that out. 

Have a good weekend!!!

Beautiful photo of two inspiring women! Yay for Kenny stepping up to the cooking challenge! And I'd be interested to hear more (if you ever care to) on not using the band to determine portion size.

I am inspired by reading about your active lifestyle post band! I love to travel and I can't wait to feel comfortable in a plane seat! I hope to be banded in September.

Hi, I'm a new follower to you blog. I am afflicted with extreme wanderlust and, while I travel fairly regularly, I am devouring your travel pics as well as following your post WLS journey. I had RNY on 4/11/11 and have lost about 110 pounds. It was one of the best decisions of my life. Have a blast in Prague. It's on my list too.

It was so great to meet up with you! :)

Looks like K. really out did himself...yum!

Have fun in Prague. Can't wait to hear all about it. Eat some goulash for me. LOL

Great picture (and so envy-inducing!)

That K sounds like a keeper - good for him for pulling together such a lovely meal!

Good luck with figuring out the band and portion sizes. Let us know what you decide!

You two women look great. And that's awesome that you could meet all places England!

Mari said...

I'm very jealous of your meet up with Lap Band Gal and it made me think we should have a get together?! I only live in Brighton about an hour away - perhaps there might be some other UK based bandsters up for it? x

Ronnie said...

Glad you and Karin got to meet up, helps to put a face or two to blogland every once in a while, yanno? :)

And proud of Kenny for making you such an awesome dinner!
