The last few days has been sucky lately, but since the Krispy Kreme donut incident today, I seem to be on a better path now.Be the first to leave a comment.
I haven't wii-fitted for 16 days!!! So i did only 10 minutes tonight. I finally cleared up most of the living room tonight, so more room to walk through now. I am still unpacking. UGH! But getting there!!
I am having my bottom freeze fridge delivered here next week from my condo and I can't wait. My landlord will come and get the fridge out this weekend so I will be without fridge for a day or two. SO I need to plan ahead on this when it comes to eating!! I hate the top freezer fridge.
My elbow is acting up again so I am seeing Dr. Hunter, PA tomorrow. I have had two coristone shots so don't know what the next step will be? Surgery, maybe? I feel like I am a surgery addict but really I am not. I have had 2 carpal tunnel surgeries in 1995, 6 finger surgeries since 2002, the latest was Dec 17, 2008. then the lapband surgery 1/28/09. Joy joy!!
Sad news, I am going to be going through green ginger tea withdrawls! I ran out of my tea mix so I have to order it on line when I get paid Friday. It will be a few days!!! :( and I have quite abit of ginger root, so i will just juice it and freeze it so it won't go to waste.
I met Lisa O. last Sunday and she is a sweet girl. We chatted for couple hours! It is so nice meeting people with same experiences where we can easily relate!! I hope to meet a couple more local girls here from the lapband board and I am so excited to meet this favorite poster this coming August!!!!
2009 has been great to me this year so far, even tho it has been almost 4 months into 2009. The surgery, my job, new friends with lapband, move, reconnecting with old friends on facebook, and a busy year ahead. Rhode Island-Florida trip in July, then a week later going to Las Vegas because my neice is getting married there, and maybe hook up with a high school classmate that lives there and catch up. Haven't seen him for over 20 years!! We shall see. Maybe Hawaii in December. I want to do Diamond Head so bad.
That's all for now!
Almost a month post op!

Well, I have been banded almost 20 days now (2 hours from now, it's 10 pm Monday nite).1 comment | Leave a comment.
I am down to 215 (per scale this am) from 231 on the day of surgery.
Doing pretty good. I am so sick of pureed food. I see my NUT tomorrow and I can't wait. Hopefully I will move onto solids. My cusinart food processor has been getting alot of use and I am just sick of washing the pieces after every single use.
I was reading my past posts from early 2008 on. It was fun reading my past posts.
I am a wii-fit addict. Did 47 minutes today.
I feel that my band changed me in some ways, such as thinking, etc.
My weight is melting off and it is easy this time, but I know it is not an easy way out. I just do the work and I am determined to succeed at this and I know I will!!! Know why? I am not at my old job anymore where there were constant candy bowl near my desk that my bitch supervisor purposefully put there and I have tried to move it away many times and she just put it back there. UGH! She also purposefully sabogated my weight loss too. She is the kind of person that likes to see people fail. I started losing in 2002-2003-2004. She claimed that I inspired her to lose weight. I was just so angry at her for violating my privacy via internet... that it put me into deep depression, plus I was having some other health issues that also put me in depression. She also made it HARD for me to take time off to go see doctors, and phsycial therapy so I gave up on PT.
I eventually left that job in April 2008 and went to work for Group Health Cooperative. It is so much better and the BEST part is NO candy bowl there!! YIPEEE!!! and it is much easier this time around. No temptations. No constant potlucks on a regular basis at my last job. I've had to call in sick on several times the potlucks were scheduled, lame, eh! LOL It was always an oinkfest there. Worst during the holidays too!
Now that I am banded, I notice that I am not angry at that bitch anymore, maybe it could be because I have been away from that job for almost a year now and I don't have to see her fugly face. Also I finally feel like I can finally lose weight again without the constant stress at my last job and being angry at her and struggling. UGH. I don't know...it's just hard to explain. I will certainly bring this up with my therapist this coming Thurs or Friday night, I can't remember which day, so thankfully her assistant calls the day before to remind us.
That's all for now on my thoughts. Thanks for reading!
