TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

No More Salt!

Well, I have been battling the same 2 lbs. now for a few weeks.  Up to 214 then back down to 212 and back up again.................

I wish I could blame it on TOM, thyroid, anything really!  But I can't!

You see, I love me some tortilla chips.  And the last few weeks I have been licking the salt off the chips (literally!).  Salty and I do not get along as I am a retainer of water.  You can call me the human sponge. I have eaten chips with queso, salsa and plain.  Almost every day.  Is it a lot less than pre-band?
Yes!  But still, I know better.

I have been walking every day and  justify eating the crap because I exercise so much.  Which is WRONG!!! 

So, I am pledging to eat better this week.  More lean protein and no salty snacks.

Accountability sucks!


  1. Tortilla chips and I also have a very 'special' relationship.

    I've pledged to eat right this week too!! Good luck!

  2. Accountability does suck, but it sure does help in the long run, doesn't it? :)

  3. I know what you mean about craving salty things...sometimes it is so hard to resist so I just give in occasionally. You also might want to try increasing your water on days when you indulge to try to counterbalance the effects of the salt.

  4. Does it evva!!! But I'm afraid that it's the only way most of us humans ever accomplish anything significant! Keep at it friend!

  5. I join you in the love of all things salty ... sadly join you ...

  6. mmm...salt. and I hear ya with tortilla chips. I live in Phoenix, and well....every party has 937 types of salsa and 283 kinds of tortilla chips. Yellow ones. White ones. Red ones. Homemade ones. Evil. Tortilla. Chips. ;)
