A shout out to "Seeing in color" and other not so interesting stuff.

I have been watching what I eat and being careful about my carb intake... I also went to the movies wednesday and didn't eat any popcorn. In fact, I snuck in a Baked Salmon filet and ate that during the movie... I am trying to get my protein goals in and have been pretty close. It seems like when I meet my protein goals, I go over my calories. So it is all a learning experience. I haven't been working out really though, a little walking but not going to the gym. I haven't been able to develop a routine that includes the gym yet, but I will eventually. I know it will be less painful when I lose more weight. I can handle the sore muscles that we all deal with after working out but the joints swell up and the pain is unbearable. I know that Water aerobics is what's best for me but the time of the class never seems to work out and I tried doing what I learned on my own and I am not ready for that yet. I need the teacher to tell me what to do... and I need to go. I think I might have found a YMCA that has a 12noon water aerobics which would be more convienent for me but I haven't gone yet. Anyway, I will try to start that routine next week and keep walking my dog several times a day until then... As long as I can each time. On a more personal note... tomorrow is my 4 month bandiversary so I have to make an effort to take photos for my progress scrapbook. I feel great about my band and my progress but I think I need another fill and I need to eat less more often... and slower. SO those are my goals for this week... Well, I am going to do my first shout outs... now that I have over 100 followers many of them due to Steph and Draz giving me a boost... I am going to lead you to one of our own who is from Australia and newly banded on June 9th,2010, I started following her because she is quirky and funny and has a great blog that I love to read... Well, some of you loyal follower may also enjoy it so here goes... She thinks she's stuck at 29 followers, I definitely know how that feels and how amazing having the support and love of this incredible group of women feels... Her blog Seeing in Color can be found at Tell her I sent you down under, It makes me sound like a Pimp... Love you guys! *Maria*


  1. Off to check out your friend's blog! :)

  2. I had to laugh at sneaking salmon in the movies. Did you think you would ever do that? :)

  3. thats funny salmon in the movies lol happy 4 months bandversary. hugs

  4. Lol, how in the heck do you sneak in a baked salmon filet?? That cracked me up!

  5. LMAO!!! salmon in the movie theater? you are too much :-)

  6. You guys love the salmon story... LOL. I get Baked salmon from Captain D's which is a fast food seafood restaurant around me... It's like 140 calories and 33 grams of protein... and I love it. So I put it in my handbag with a little Ginger Teryaki sauce. If I used all of the sauce, which I don't it would be an extra 60 calories. Yummy!

  7. Oh my Maria thank you SOOOO much... certainly seems im not stuck at 29 now hahahaha how silly am i?!

    Thanks so much for the help and supportive comments YOU ROCK.

    Sorry this comment reached you so late... being here in AUS means i live in the FUUTTUUREEEE (ahaha i did it in caps to make it seem like i said it all futuristically and stuff ahah) so i dont get to see some posts until the following day which is when you guys are usually ending your day the day before... hmmm ahahah that sounded weird.
    anyhoo you know you rock.

    plus i love how you took salmon into the movies ahahah im not getting enough protein... i find that part really hard :-\

  8. No popcorn at the movies! GREAT CHOICE! That salmon... cracked me up!!!!
    Keep walking!~
    Yes, it will get easier as you lose more weight!
    Thank you for your comment!
    It was embarrasing as heck at the time, you can imagine. Now it is embarrassing - and funny!
    Have a pretty day!

  9. Just to let you know I'm following you. You're doing great. A bit weird about sneaking salmon into a movie but whatever works. I feel bad when I sneak in water. Thanks for visiting my blog and hope the sliming post gave you some information. Most of the time all is well so don't think it will happen to you. A lot of bloggers never have problems. Hope you are one of them. Anyone who sneaks salmon into a movie so they don't eat candie or popcorn is my hero.

  10. OK, I just have to say that if I was sitting near someone eating salmon at the movies, I would gag and likely dry heave! Not a lover of fish smells.
