The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!!!!!

Well, the good thing is that I was able to see my family in Arizona.  I was also lucky enough to meet a fellow Bandster....Jen!  She is beautiful and I felt like I knew her already! 

The bad is that I went for my first fill today.  The doctor did not have me sip water before I left, so I took a drink in the car on the way home and.....I threw up 5 times before I got home.  Good lord, that was really bad.  Thank goodness I had gone shopping and I had some plastic bags to throw up in.  Yuck.  I am calling tomorrow to get some taken out because I cannot drink anything.......hence I'm starving!

The ugly is that I still look like a linebacker in pictures and I still have a double chin!!!!!  I still have a long way to go, but the doctor said I am doing excellent!

I will catch up on all of your blogs this week.  I have missed you so much.

  1. I had my first fill today too. How much did you have put in your band? My dr. put in 5 cc in a 14 cc band. He had me drink water in the ofc. Liquids for 24 hrs. So far I've had:
    protein shake breakfast, soup lunch, soup dinner, water. Knock on wood...all is good so far.

    Have you been able to keep anything down yet? Does sound like you need an unfill.

    Arizona always makes beautiful pix. It is nice you could meet up with a fellow bandster.

  2. you so do NOT look like a linebacker!
    Glad you had a great trip. sucks about the fill. could it perhaps that you're just extra sensitive after the fill and it'll settle down in a day or so? Hope that's the case. doesn't sound like any fun at all!

  5. Most of us have a long way to go so don't worry your pretty head. We'll lose the weight together. I can't believe your doc didn't have you drink anything. Sorry you have to get an unfill after your first fill. Bummer!

  8. Nary a linebacker to be found! You both look beautiful! I'm so sorry to hear about your over-restriction. It is just the worst feeling ever, so I hope they can give you a small unfill to make you feel better! maybe you can bring something to drink with you.

    I have to ask, how totally hot was Arizona?

  9. @ Stephanie, AZ was oven hot at 111 degrees! However, my hair loved the low humidity!

  11. A linebacker? hmmmmm....maybe you should get an eye appt instead of a fill next time, yes? You are beautiful and so is Jen...but mostly, you are on your way DOWN baby! Definitely call for a little unfill, sounds way to tight as I am now an expert on tightness! Don't wait a week like I did!
