Rockin' it Out!

Been a while.. yet not much to say

I haven't written a blog post in a while and the only real reason for it is that I have nothing to report. I have been sitting at the same weight (+/- a pound or two) for days... since about May 19th really! I know because I track my weight every day and that's the first day I started this up and down bull crap. In all fairness, I haven't started working out but I am eating less but probably not what I should be eating. It's that time of the month (or will be this week anyways) and I am feeling munchy and want to eat all the time. Add that to the fact that I threw a baby shower on Sunday and yeah... the weight is just being maintained. I'm ok with that mostly but really I WANT ANOTHER FILL!

When I got my last fill she told me I really did have to wait the full 4-6 weeks for another fill now regardless of how the last fill made me feel. Well, even though they doubled my fluid in my band I'm still feeling zilcho change. I know I eat less. I see it when I get full and sit back and see all the food left on my plate. I see it when I'm out to eat someplace and bring 3/4 of my meal home with me. I do see that I am eating less, I do! Yet, I'm still frustrated because I want my fills when *I* want them and I'm not allowed to get another one until June 29th. ARGH!

In the mean time I'm just going to sit back and start exercising and watching the crap that gets near my face. Our new gym opens today at 4pm. It was supposed to open May 1st but don't get me started on that.

I've ultimately lost about 23 lbs (since April 11 - pre-op diet) and I guess I should be happy with that but I just am being ridiculous and want it to happen overnight.

Blah... add all that to the fact that Cadence was walking on the edge of the sandbox yesterday at school, slipped and fell and landed straddling the edge. She was alright but didn't pee from 5pm yesterday until 1:30pm today! We were both QUITE cranky by then and I think mine hasn't quite worn off yet. :(

I'll be back with a more positive post soon.. I hope! (grr.. LOL)


  1. I hope you get to feeling better soon...I know about wanting that fill, I have to wait for my 2nd one until July 1st, they told me that I have to wait atleast 6 weeks inbetween each fill for the 1st 3 then if I dont feel anything they will consider doing another one sooner...

  2. No worries... keep your chin up. I didn't lose much between my first and second fill. And then I was told I wasn't eating ENOUGH. Funny. at any rate, be proud of your progress and remember you aren't GAINING, right??? :-)

  3. I'm sorry to hear they're making you wait for a fill, that sucks! Don't get too discouraged right now though. Once you get to a really good level of restriction, the weight will start dropping off much more reliably. I know it's hard to put up with right now, but I wish you the best!
