After a year of absence, I went to the Lapband support group at West Jeff tonight. It wasn't bad, but I was the youngest person there. The only guy in the group at the end of the meeting was checking me out and asking me if I was single... I don't think because he was interested, but rather I think he had someone in mind he wanted to set me up with... I informed him I had a SO that I lived with but thanks. It was a little weird. I will go back though, because they seemed like nice people and I learned a few things. Mostly, I learned that aside from my ice cream problem, I am doing pretty well with my weight loss. That was reassuring. I might go back next month just so they don't talk about me. I did notice that they talked about the people who weren't there or people who'd come in the past and flaunted their loss but had done it in an unhealthy way. I try to balance my unhealthy choices by about 1/4 of the healthy choices and I still lose. I even lose when I live on ice cream. However, I made red beans and rice tonight (sans rice for me) and it didn't go over so well. It wasn't the sausage though - it was the beans. I've noticed that dense protein settles better than creamy stuff. So, I will continue to stick with the protein for the meals.
