Tonight I had a major NSV.
I have been working on and off all day on my computer. Stuck in a chair. In my cramped office. Just sitting.
About 7:15 I decided I was bored. I was getting a bit claustrophobic (I had not been able to swim today). I needed a change.
Before band I would have plopped my fat butt down in a chair with a bucket of popcorn and vegged. Because well, I have been working hard all day.....I deserve a little break.
But that is not what I did. I didn't even think about eating (HUH?). I laced up my tennies and went for a 3 mile walk with my oldest daughter.
I wore my daughter out. I would have walked longer but she kept complaining about the heat (it was still around 97 here).
I remember about a month after being banded I tried to walk and it lasted about 15 minutes before I was huffing and puffing. Who knew not even 6 months later I would walk 3 miles and I am not falling over from exhaustion.
I know that they say this band is not magic.........but, to me it is. Every day I am so thankful that my band has given me a new lease on life. And this time around, I am not going to waste it on the couch.
