I'm feeling a bit better than I was yesterday. I just came back from a good walk--a full 30 minutes! I'm still wearing my compression band because I feel like things are all jiggly... well, jigglier than usual... when I'm walking. I took it fairly slow I think, but I still felt the cardio-ness of it all. (I'm a tad out of shape.)

Being fairly new to blogland (mostly family and real-life friends read the other blog), I've been spending waaaay too much time going blog-to-blog and following and commenting. It's really exhausting! I also love that there's such a tight-knit community of bandsters; I'm excited that I get to be a part of it.

There've been so many posts regarding Halloween and Halloween candy lately; having been banded the day before Halloween, I'm really glad that Korea doesn't really celebrate it. It's slowly becoming more popular with the little kids, but adults don't really do anything so the candy temptation has kind of been a non-issue for me, as there hasn't been any. Either way, I believe it's okay to indulge once in a while--if you never let yourself have those treats, it just leads to binging. Of course, if you're anything like me, then you'll just end up "indulging" everyday, totally sabatoging any progress you've made.

It's bittersweet, but I'm also kind of glad that I won't be home for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year. I just don't trust myself to handle that kind of temptation yet; I really need some time to focus on myself and really do this. The best way for me to do that is just to avoid situations where I am tempted to eat things I shouldn't, in quantities I shouldn't.

I find that it's much easier to stay on track when I'm active in forums and blogging. When I did Weight Watchers in the past, I was most successful when I actively participated in the forums; it's the accountability I suppose. So take note--if I go a long time without blogging, it's probably because I'm eating things I shouldn't.

Uggggh, gotta go to work today. I'm so not ready for this!

Ditto your comment regarding participating in forums and blogging. When I stopped doing well I stopped blogging and left LBT. Now that Im back on top of things, I am doing much better. Its good you know that about yourself already - I learned the hard way :-(
