Rockin' it Out!

Friday, November 20, 2009


I can handle a lot, I really can.  However, I just looked at my weight excel spread sheet to see when the first time was that I got into this tens bracket.  It was July 1... JULY!  I have been struggling with this same 10 pounds.. HELL the same FIVE pounds since JULY!  I weighed in at 217.2 this morning which is down from last week but up from my lowest weight.  On July 1st, I weighed 220.0.  Suckdog.

So... to not let this get me down TOO much, I called and made an appt for a fill and what do you know they got me in on TUESDAY!  YAY!!!  I'm really going to lay it out there and tell the NP all of this.  Tell her I have about 5 more months of "free" fills in my self-pay package and I'm sick of weighing the same thing.  I'm going to tell her to be aggressive and give me a freaking FILL and not a fill.  I obviously need some more help unless I'm just one of those people that the band doesn't work for.  I don't believe this to be true since I'm maintaining my weight and DO feel some restriction.  Things are definitely different in how I eat as well.  I eat MUCH slower and have to do so or I feel like I'm stuck for a bit.  I get the hiccups if I stop thinking for a minute and take a drink too quickly after a bite of food (I have fessed up to taking one or two drinks (sips) while I eat).  There are a lot of things!  I am hardly ever hungry and that is GREAT!  I just need some help with my food quantity and that means I need a FILL!  Please!

I'm going to admit to being excited to be getting a fill before Thanksgiving too so I don't have the ability to pig out.  I was a bit worried about my will power on turkey day!

That's that.  I'm gonna get a fill and assume that's the only problem so I don't give myself an aneurysm and just keep truckin' along!

Happy Friday to you all!


  1. Don't get too discouraged! I know exactly how you're feeling. Up until a couple weeks ago, I'd been struggling with the same ten pounds over and over since, like, May!! If you're not feeling all that much restriction, then don't worry, that's probably your biggest problem right now.

    If you still struggle for a while after that, though, you could always consider doing what I did and do a temporary low-carb diet for a few weeks. You lose a bunch of water weight right up front and then start dropping fat, so it's really easy to stay motivated since you'll see the scale go down every single day. It's just a good way to get back into the right mindset, and start feeling better about your weight loss.

    I wish you all the success in the world though, don't get discouraged, you WILL get past this!! :)

  2. Ack I hear you here Tiffany. I was looking back and I seem to be crawling down those scales at a snails pace. It is driving me nuts. I guess on the upside for you, you haven't gained so take the new fill as a new starting point and hopefully things should start to move again.

  3. Hey Tiff I agree with the Dash at least you are maintaing very well, it would be worse if the scale was going the othe direction. The fill maybe the kick that you need to get you going again. But stay with it you know this works and it will work for you again !!
