New Journey Awaits

However, I did learn that popcorn (corn) is a grain I am to stay far far away from. Not too happy about that as I am a huge fan of corn. But I had a morning debate with other Wheat Belly fans on the facebook group … about popcorn. Some said it was okay with moderation, some said, absolutely NOT!!!

I’ve already given up so many tasty crap foods all thanks to my Lap Band journey … my taste buds no longer crave that. And it’s been so nice to see all the yummy chips in the ginormous chip aisle and simply walk by them all because I know they are loaded with bad chemicals and a shit-storm of other nastiness that my shrinking body no longer wants.

In a few hours, I’m also making the decision to go back to the PIXIE world. I’ve been in the lovely peri menopause world for several years now and having any hair on my neck is utterly a sweat-fest that I no longer want to be a part of. It’s nice to know I can grow out my pixie if I want to, as I just did after a 10-month time frame but nothing is more embarrassing to stand in a public arena surrounded by a ton of strangers when my peri menopause kicks in and I look like a drowned rat (aka when my hair becomes sopping wet) and I’m flushed in the ole face. When I had the pixie cut, thankfully I did not experience that wet hair effect. So, I’m getting a color and a short short cut again.

And when I return to Yankton later today, I will map out my walking/jogging schedule. I hear the weather is supposed to turn crappy this week… so I live upstairs in a two level apartment complex and I have a great set of cement steps to climb daily. My plan this week is to just walk up and down the steps. Climbing is a good exercise for my legs and knees. When the crap weather improves, my next journey is to walk to the two cemeteries across the street from me… they have excellent walking/roads…nice and smooth and clear/clean. And no one but me will be around to watch me jog/walk.

New month. New attitude. New hope.

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
