First Bariatric appt— again
Oct 09, 2020
So to my surprise my Dr no longer has anything to do with lap band. He said he wants to remove it and do the sleeve on me.
I'm kinda scared about this. Before I had no doubts.
I’m a fat girl again

so my scale says I'm 216 .???????
today,I'm going to go and see my bariatric doctor to see if he can adjust my lap band or redo it or whatever.
it's been nine years since my lap band surgery. I have been going downhill since my mom died two years ago -worst day of my life.
ALMOST~~ MY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!

Happy New years!!
SO its been almost 2 years since my surgery.. im not quiet sure what I weigh at this point, somewhere around 188 I believe. .. I will weigh in soon and post though...... I never work out, lift weights and such.... or even eat right.. but thats going to change today!
I did do 15 min of pilates this morning , with a few dances of that dance party on wii.. thats pretty fun!... I have lost ALOT of muscle tone .. from not gettting protein I suppose. .... but its a new year and im out to LIVE it now, not just exist..... I know in my head that if I do what I need to do I will have energy and tone and possibly loose more weight... but I just dont!!!! Its still so freaking mental!!! Now if I can get my brain focused the world will be mine!

I went to see shin yesterday.. first time since Sept I believe..he said i was down 22 pounds but I weighed in at 183.... my scale goes from 1777-183 depends on the time of day, if i have had a BM lol... but he as please with my progress. I told him that I am happy with my band at this time . .and he was happy with my loss. He says he wants me to lose just 15 more pounds!!!! 15 I thought!!! Thats not near my goal of 150... but oh well!..... then the shocking words of him saying how he wants me to think about untightening my band ...to thinnk about this hard..... because peope do survive eating 1,200 calories a day with being restricted........i dont know about this now... i wasnt NOT expecting to EVER get it undone as long as it took it get my sweet spot!.......I do see his point of view because I do find myself not having lunch with the girls at work , to avoiding social sitiations like that altogether... but that I can live with! ....I know myself all to well and I do belive I will go back to my wicked eating ways..... Have to wait and see!.

Things I am noticing.... Im crossing my legs with ease, my collarbones are more prominate, my face looks ALOT thinner!. I am wearing a size 16 in jeans now but they are kinda streatchy from CATO but that counts! lol... I dont really care to much about eating out anymore because its not as fun since I cant eat much. I still have mental issues with wanting to overeat... I think I will ALWAYS have that problem... I hope not but ya never know:(
But anyways Im pretty damn happy!!
Its a dream!
