It was bound to happen....

I lost a follower.  Not sure why - but I know it happens.  Still hard to not take personally and wonder what I said to make them go away.

Actually, one of my greatest fears and struggles is around the idea that people don't want to be around me.  I get even a little insecure when my husband wants to go to the man cave to watch TV instead of watch with me.  Although I will easily admit that I sometimes like when he isn't home or around and I get my own me time.  Funny.  anyway, I'm like it with friends and family members and just kinda don't like the idea that people don't want to be with me.  It isn't rational when I think about it too deeply - so I don't much.  :)

Not much to report really.  My sinuses are acting up, so I haven't felt 100%.  I feel like I'm just on hold with the band.  I feel some restriction.  Still no bread happening - but I get hungry or do some mindless eating at times.  I'm not really planning on a big loss tomorrow.  I'd be happy with just a little.  We'll see how that goes.

I need to start up-ing the exercise.  I know that.  I need to bust a move a little more.  I am barely hitting 3000 steps a days if I don't try.  I'm trying to keep up with my boss who is hitting 6000 a day average.  we have one employee hitting over 20k a day!!!    Can you believe that?  she was a walker to begin with.  But 20k a day???

What about you all?  Have you counted steps before??  How are you exercising these days?


  1. you're right about the followers, it's bound to happen now and again and all you can do is just keep being yourself. And OMG, I totally forgot about the pedometer. Because of an earlier post of yours I downloaded a pedometer onto my iphone with the complete intention of seeing how many steps I was taking, but I totally forgot - so you've reminded me again and I'll do it soon!

  2. I try to exercise 5-6 days a week. I sometimes exercise 2x a day! I think I am feeling so good from it, that I want to do more!

  3. I participated in a work step count thing and it was aimed at reaching 10000 a day. I ranged from 5000 - 28000 depending on what I did. Having an office job did't help much :)

  4. Awww. Don't worry about losing a follower. Look at it like this..sometimes it's about not having the time to comment and support you fully. So it is easier to just stop following. Don't let yourself get to upset by it because you can't control blog land. But what you can control you are doing! Your health! Keep it up! I am exercising but not as much as one should! Yoga tomorrow and the I meet with a trainer on tuesday! :)

  5. I lost 4 followers in a week happens. As bigger girls, I think we all have the insecurity thing going on so we take it personally. The week after I lost the 4, I gained 5 so it all works out in the end. Good luck with the working out!

  6. I added myself as a follower...Since our banding dates are similar, I think we can be a great source of support for one another.

    I have a lot of wonderful friends but a lot of them have no idea what a weight problem is or what it feels like to deal with weight issues or WLS. But the blogging world has generously brought some friends to me that are going through the exact same thing i am. I'm thankful for you and all of my new bandster friends.
