I am sorry that I haven't been posting, nor commenting on blogs as usual. I have just gotten so behind because of dealing with my FIL'S death. I haven't been able to catch up on the blogs & can't even think of anything to say in my own!! I think that I am still too overwhelmed by all that we went through last week.
I feel like this photo above right now. But don't worry, I haven't taken to eating Cheeseburger's again!! But I haven't been eating like I should & I have gained back a couple of pounds again! We brought out one of the extra Enchilada Pies that we made for Christmas Eve, & froze to eat later. It is really good, but I am afraid that it is high in calories. Luckily, it is almost gone! Then I can get back to my allowed diet!! I really need to show the PA at the Surgeon's office that I can still lose weight. She was not happy that I had only lost 1 lb from my post op appointment to my First Fill! Of course, it didn't help that the Holidays were during that time frame! I told her that I had actually lost another 5 lbs, but had gained it back during the Holidays. She just looked at me like I was weak willed & wasn't very supportive. :(
I go back in on the 25th for my 2nd Fill & I really need it, as the First Fill didn't give me any restriction at all!!! Also, a quick word on the FILL. I wasn't sure what to expect. Most bandsters say that it didn't hurt at all, but some say it hurt like hell! Well, for me, the Fill was painless. I could feel some pressure, but no pain of any kind!! My DH was there watching & he was amazed that I couldn't feel anything after seeing the needle she used!! She also didn't try to deaden the area first, which I have read that most that do complain of pain, only complains of the pain from the numbing shot. Then there are the few that really have had excruciatingly painful experiences. Thank god those are the few & not the many.
We are also hoping that the weather changes by the weekend of the 24th. So we can rent a u-haul trailer & take up the rest of my Step Son's furniture to him. He has moved back to his mother's house in Northern California, so he can attend the Jr College up there. But this means that we would have to drive over the Sierra's again, as the easiest way to get to her place is to drive to Reno, then drive North from there. Currently it is storming all week! If it doesn't stop at least for the 24th, we won't be able to take his furniture up to him again. We do have a 4x4, but we don't want to have to purchase chains in order to pull the u-haul!
So that is all for me at the moment. I hope everyone is doing well. By the way, I found a new blog through "Shrinking Mommy", called "Banded Mommy", please take a look, she is being banded later this month & could use some support (http://bandedmommy.blogspot.com/) Till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
