After last week's .2 loss, my scale owed me. It's a good thing no one was there to see me do a happy dance in the bathroom this morning, because I am a terrible dancer.
I was a good lap banded girl this week. Brought my breakfast and lunch to work every day, and refrained from restocking my office candy bowl with Easter Rolos, which I would have eaten all week. I did have one Cadbury egg, which I entered into MyFitnessPal (150 calories, thank you very much) but otherwise held it together this week. I make no promises about Easter Sunday.
Was just reading Mon's post about portions, which reminded me that even though I am getting better at some of these lapbander rules, I still have a ways to go. I have my small plates and bowls, and my smaller forks, but since I'm not in the green zone yet, I am no 1/2 cup meal girl. Last night, at lap band support group, half of them talked about eating 1/2 cup at every meal, and it blows my mind. But I have definitely changed. Below is dinner from the other night.

of protein that goes in my mouth. THERE WILL BE CARBS.
Do any of you eat 1/2 cup meals or is that some kind of lap band urban legend?
