hair and burbs oh my!!

Wow had forgotten how long it has been since I last posted. Alot going on around the house front. Normal summer stuff and the all present kid drama.  You would think as old as my kids are thing would calm down but no such luck LOL 

well I did get a fill this month, I was only down 7 lbs from last month. which bummed me out but it beats gaining 7 lbs. I know alot of people would love losing that much.

I have noticed with this fill I am very tight, and really restricted on eating.  I am not sure if maybe I am too tight or not. The reason I am wondering is that seems no matter what I eat or drink or how fast or slow I go I get the burps so bad.  Anyone got any ideas on this?

The other HUGE concern I have is with the amount of hair I have started losing. I didnt when I first had the surgery but the last month or so I feel like a shedding dog. I am talking handfulls at a time.  I asked the Dr about this he said it was normal and should be stopping soon.  Anyone else have this happen to them?

I have still been trying all kinds of food and still havent found any I can eat. just not the amounts as before.  So knowing this and knowing what works for my body ( carbs are sooooooooo bad for me) I try to stay away from the bad except for very small amounts and stick with the protien.

I hope everyone else is having a great summer and enjoying great success on this journey.

No fill

Well went to the Dr today and I was down 12lbs more. I am almost down 60 lbs total since the 6th of May. I didnt get a fill today, I think I am ok with where I am at.  This would have been my 3rd one.  I know I can eat a about 1/2 an ounce more food then what he wants me to and with that amount more if I do eat it I am stuffed and uncomfortable.  So he said we would wait to see how I was doing next month.

I had packed away some of my skinny clothes so the other day I thought what the heck I will get them out and see how much more I have to lose to get into them.  I got into them all, it was so exciting.

I have been missing in action for a few weeks, didn't realize I had been gone so long.  We have had great weather and so have been doing other stuff.  Also been doing a bunch of sewing for my granddaughters.

I have been out riding my bike, not every day cause it has been so hot even in the evenings.

Well I hope everyone has had a great week

Lesson learned.

Thanks for all the concern, I for sure have learned my lesson but good.  No need to go to the DR I am fine and the band seems to be doing what is suppsoed to.  I did the liquids that evening and the next day I was good with food again.  I made sure to take it easy and only did soft stuff.

Thank goodness it is the weekend, work has been such a pain the last few days. Driving me crazy with schedule changes and special projects going on.

We went boating last weekend and next weekend they have a big boat races and do all kinds of stuff so we are going to that.  This weekend just staying at home, I hope to get some sewing done.  I have cut out a bunch of summer clothes for my granddaughters. Might check out some yard sales even.  Always on the look out for more fabric and sewing things.  Like I need any more I have about 5000 yards of material as it is. Can we say hoarder. LOL

So what are you plans for the weekend? Are you being hit by that crazy heat wave? If so make sure to stay cool and not get over heated.

Have a great one.

What the heck was I thinking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont know why but yesterday I ate and ate and ate, even though my stomach was YELLING at me to stop, nothing would do tell I made my self sick. Some kind of crazy breakdown I guess.

Now today I havent been able to eat anything, not even my protien drinks and have managed about 1 cup total of water. Dont feel like I am going to toss my cookies but just seems my stomach is bloated and when I did try to drink or eat I got maybe one bite or a swallow and felt like I was stuffed and couldnt get anything else in there.  So I figure it's payback for the way I treated it yesterday.

If tomorrow is the same I will call the Dr make sure I didnt screw myself up.

So anyone else ever do this?

where did the week go

Well today is my last day of vacation and it's back to work tomorrrow.  Had a wonderful weekend, a friend of ours has a boat so we went boating and then came home today. Had great weather for it, it started out kind of cloudy but then the sun came out.

We stopped to eat and I think this has been the first time we have gone out to a resturant. It took me awhile to deicde what to try to eat. I got to thinking that what was the point since I couldnt eat any of the great looking meals they had in the menu. But I got rid of that thought and ordered a small meal and brought most of it home.

I have noticed that with this second fill I can really tell the difference from the first one.  With the first it seems like I could eat so much more, even though I tried to make sure I didnt. With this fill if I eat to much I get the stuck sick feeling which I have discovered is NO fun.

So what have all of you been up to on this great weekend?

missing in action

I have been missing for awhile and honest have a good reason.  Not sure how many people are like me but there I times that  I LOVE to be in  the house alone when everyone is gone or at work. But because of how many people that live with us it is very few and far between times when this happens.  Most times when it does it's only for a couple hours or so.  Well this week everyone was gone all week YEAHHHHH.  So I got the days to myself and then my husband and I got the evenings by ourselves.  Now dont get me wrong, I love my kids and grandkids but some days it is a nut house here.  My daugher and son-in-law with their 5 kids and my son and his daughter all live with us.  My son-in-law just got custody of his 3 boys, how could we tell them no they cant come live with us.

Anyway back to the weight loss. Since my last fill a month ago I have only lost 10 lbs.  I thought it should have been more, but I know why I havent.  I started on regular food and have wanted to try and see what I couldnt eat.  So far there is nothing that I cant eat. So now it's me putting a stop to eating bad and eat the right stuffl

I did go for my second fill yesterday and he put in 2 1/4 cc. I can sure fill the difference in this one compared to my first one.

So how are you doing?  Any good tips or ideas to help me and others along the way?  I can use all the help I can get  lol.

birthdays and real food

Well my birthday was all I could have asked for.  I did get my bike from my DH and he made sure to get me the helmet, lights, and mirror to attach to the handle bar. I got on it the first time and thought I was going to take out one of our bushes LOL.  I had forgotten how long it has been since I last rode a bike.

My daughter made my cake and my son-in-law cooked a really nice steak for me. Not that I could eat that much but it was the thought that counted. My grandkids made me cards, and then sang Happy Birthday to me.

Well as you can tell I am on to solid foods yeah, have to say I have been trying a bite of everything so far. I want to see if there is stuff I cant eat. Nothing has bothered me so far other then eating to fast. I had a stuck period, not fun at all.

My DH is going to do a cook out so we will have all the kids and some friends over to eat. It has been so pretty today not clouds in the sky and tomorrow is supposed to be the same.

Hope everyone has a fantastic 4th of July and have a safe one.
