So we all know WLS does not solve the reasons,we are over weight. .the band is just a tool. Just like a treadmill , if I don't get on it it won't help w your fitness. .. so Thursday I was dealing w a lot of crap and emotionally it got the best of me. I not only skipped the gym Thursday night but I went over my calories for the day by about 400... w that said it was done w healthy, band size snacks but in my book, a big day of fails regardless... pre band emotional eating would have gone on for days and not been healthy so I am thankful for that.. but just like I would correct my child for not doing right yesterday was a day to correct and get back on track... liquids until dinner... check... gym an Hour & 45 min cardio ( u read that right)... check... and its 830 on Sat morning and I am back in here so I obviously didn't over do it... I say all that to say we are all human. BUT don't loose sight of the goal, if u have a slip up... just correct it.
