Would You Like a Tasty Donut?


Me too.

I would like three donuts actually.

To be specific:

One with chocolate glaze.

One with sprinkles.

One with creme filling.





On Friday at work, I heard the announcement from the break room: "Krispy Kreme donuts you guys!"

My first thought: "Sweet!"

My second thought: "Wait! Look it up first"

Before I could jump up from my chair and run/walk to the breakroom, I went onto Krispy Kreme's website to look up the plain glazed donut that I knew I would eat.

Just to double check real quick.

Just to be super sure of what I was about to do.

Phew! I was relieved to see that a glazed donut is: 190 cals, 2 proteins.

I can do that.

That calorie count is totally in my "Weight Maintenance" lifestyle for a special once-a-week type of treat.

But then I scrolled down to read a few nutrition facts of the other items on the menu at Krispy Kreme.

And I came across this:

Mocha Dream Chiller. A 20 oz drink.

Yum! Right?!?

Guess how many calories and proteins are in this drink?

1050 calories, 5 proteins.

That drink would go.  right.  past.  my.  Lap-Band.  No problemo.

So, I ate that donut on Friday morning.

And I knew EXACTLY what I was getting into.

Weigh-in Day...

My scale is tired.

Or maybe my scale is broken.

Or perhaps it's time for new batteries.

How do I know?

What was today's weigh-in when I stood on the scale?

It was all over the place.

I saw everything from 141.4 lbs to 143.6 lbs.


But I consider it a "win" because I'm still below my weight of 145 lbs.

I will put in new batteries in my scale and let ya know.

A Confession & Friday Weigh-In

I have a confession.

For me, Facebook updates are easier and faster than blogging.

If I had more time in a day, I could spend lovely amounts of time sharing every little detail about my life with you here on the blog.

I don't have that time right now.

But I can do a quick photo or update on what's going on in my life on Facebook.

So if you're not on Facebook, you're missing out on some awesome-sauce updates from yours truly.

How about a before and "now" photo comparison? Yep, that was posted earlier today on FACEBOOK.

How about a quick report from me at the grocery store on my latest food find? Yep, that was posted yesterday on FACEBOOK.

How about my latest sweaty workout update? Yep, that was posted on Facebook too.

How about an update on what I ate at an Italian restaurant recently? Yep, that was posted on Facebook too.

Head on over to the Facebook page and "LIKE" the page. And, VOILA! Magic! Lap Band Gal updates will show up in your newsfeed.  You won't be sorry.  All the cool kids are doing it.  You don't want to be left out now, do you?

Now let's talk about today's weigh-in.

Goal Weight: 145 lbs

Today's Weight: 142.6 lbs

Still below goal!

 I will see you over on Facebook!
