Today's weight: 232
Total loss: 69 pounds
Banded: 6/7/2013

Hey everyone! I'm thrilled to report that I'm blogging to you from a warm house with electricity! :) It seems Cleon decided to be nice and not unleash his full fury. At least in central Arkansas, anyway. What saved us the most is that the temperature didn't fall as fast as they expected going from Thursday night at midnight into early Friday morning. And what did fall all day Friday fell in the form of sleet and not freezing rain...which is way worse for trees and power lines.

So I've had a nice little three day weekend here. I've gotten all my Christmas decor put up and I've also had time to do all those little chores I never seem to find the time to do. The roads are still very icy, and it's 25 degrees out right now, so John and I are getting ready to have dinner and watch some TV...the perfect, cozy night.

Not to bury the lead here, but I have some very exciting news! Today is my 6 Month Bandiversary! I'm completely JAZZED about the 3 pound loss this week, bringing my overall total to 69 pounds.

I had a fill this past Tuesday, my 6th, and I now have 6.7cc in my 10cc band. I really hope this one sticks around. Tradtionally, I am in the Green Zone for about 2 or 3 weeks before it seems to just vanish. But now...I'm feeling just like I want to feel...satisfied with a small, protein-dense meal, not hungry except when I should be, etc. I am also claiming a NSV of sorts. For me, a Snow Day used to mean one thing: baking. Lots and lots of baking. Bread, Cinnamon Rolls, name it. Not only have I managed to avoid this, I'm not really missing it. That much. ;) There will be a Skinny Cow Salted Caramel Pretzel Bar later on tonight, and that will hold me just fine.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. And staying warm! Thanks for reading.
