Hello sweet blogger friends! It's Monday get happy!! :)
I am down an official 38 lbs this am!
Oh, and it is the first real day of the holiday challenge! I am motivated and that is a good thing!
I went for a fill on Thursday. My second fill! Guess what it didn't hurt! I was so relieved! Pain free! I don't know what happened the first time? Craziness I swear! All was good and just like I had expected I was down 6 lbs. It had been exactly 4 weeks since my first fill, so everyone was pleased. I had 4 cc's in the band from the first the first fill and they put in an additional 1 cc. So, now I am up to 5 cc's! I am feeling great. No problems since the fill. I am not really able to eat as much as I was eating but that's a good thing! I am still able to eat things I shouldn't eat though.....last night at about 9:00 Ant decided to order a pizza. Boo.....I know! I wasn't even hungry but I managed to eat like 4 bites of a cheese stick bread and all, and the topping only off 1 piece!!!!! I know I was being such a bad girl!!!!!
When I was at the Dr. they were asking me questions about how much I ate...yadda, yadda, yadda. I was telling them that I was hungry all the time, could eat anything (disclaimer....I am really not hungry all the time and I really can't eat anything I want - I was making sure I was going to get that fill! And, trust me at my conservative Dr.'s office you have to act like this or they will send you right back out that door with no fill!) The nurse told me to make sure I never ate over 1 cup of food no matter if I was still hungry or not. I knew that I wasn't suppose to eat more than a cup, but I didn't know I was never suppose to eat more than that even if I could. They told me to never eat more than a cup because it could stretch out my esophagus and could eventually cause problems with the band!
In conclusion, I am back to measuring everything! I even carry a measuring cup in a zip lock bag in my purse! I am hard core ;)
Things I have decided to get serious about for this next month until I go back to the Dr....
water, I know I am not drinking enough.
measuring, have got to keep doing better at this!
All in all it was a great visit! The Dr. was super excited about my progress! 38 lbs. is deff a VICTORY! Now, I have to get rid of these pesky 2 lbs to reach 40 lbs down! Then, I have 10 lbs to loose to make my next goal!
I can do this! We ALL can!
