I have been away from blogging for almost 2 weeks. We were on vacation from work and some of my husbands family came to stay with us for a week. It had been 2 years since we had seen them...and it was a blast having them here! My girls have missed their Grandma and Grandpa alot! So it was great seeing them reconnect. And I get along with my inlaws, in fact I am closer to my mother in law then my own mom. They had lots of good things to say about my weight loss, so that was nice!
We basically just showed them around Colorado..the mountains and Black Canyon, etc. We stayed up late at night talking and playing card games. It was a relaxing, peaceful week and a half. I loved every minute of it, and it was really hard to say goodbye when they left.
Ok, about how I did band wise. I took a week off. It is the 1st time since I have been banded that I didnt weigh every day, obsess about what I was eating, and work out. I had ice cream for the 1st time since I have been banded. As a result on yesterday when I stepped on the scale I wasn't too happy...for the 1st time I had gained weight. But already have a couple of them gone, and in a couple days I will be back down to where I was, so I am not too mad. I had a great vacation, and I refuse to have regrets. This is not a diet, but instead a lifestyle and if I want to let go one week out of almost a whole year, well then I can't turn around and beat myself up over it.
I have lots of blogs to read to catch up, but I hope you are all doing great!
I will close it by sharing some pictures from my vacation.
