Well I have been on the job for almost a month and the stress is making me crazy. I am eating even when I'm not hungry. I like the job but the phones can drive you mad. I will be going for my second fill soon. I hope it helps. I know that I am overeating. I need to do something with my hands at home, maybe I will start to crochet again. I don't want to put the weigh back on. People are giving me their clothes because I was still wearing my "Fat Clothes". I was not ready to go but new clothes (if I keep eating like this I won't have to). Oh well I hope the second fill will calm the raging food storm.

Down To One Job
Apr 18, 2007
Well I am down to one part time job. The temp job I was working at nights has ended. the good thing is that I still have my other job, but the bad thing is I don't make enough money to cover my bills on one part time job. So I am out hitting the bricks looking for another job. My weigh is good , I go 4/26 for my first fill. I have almost come to a stand still with my weigh. I have the same 3 lbs going up and down for a month now. Life is good otherwise.

I have went from working one temp job to working two temp jobs. I still work at the sucky one, and I have added 3 hours in the morning working at a school cafe. It's an elementary school so the kids are really nice.Weigh wise I have lost 41 Lbs. I can't find time to go back to the dr. I know i need a fill. Well that's all for now gotta run...

Let me just say that this job SUCKS. i can't seem to get anything done. By the time I get up and get derek going I have to get him to school (he goes half day) then it is time for me to get ready for work. the good thing is that I have lost 2 more lbs. I have lunch at 7pm so that is the last time I eat anything. we can have clear drinks (water) on the floor but no food. when I get home I am a little hungry but I am too tired to eat. I am on my feet 8 hrs a day. I am glad that this is just a temp job. I couldn't do this all the time. I am pryaing for a better job to come around.
Start New Job
Jan 11, 2007
Well today I went to check on a job for a temp service. My phone has not been ringing, so I took the job. It is nights 3 till 11:30 but hey it's a job. I will be doing doc scanning, something that I know how to do. My old job which was almost 3 years ago was alos night shift but those hrs were 6 till 3am. I really hated those hours. These hours are more workable. I can still get time with Derek and my other grandkids. I work Sunday through Wed. Off Thursday work Firday off Saturday. Not too bad.I will still have time to get in my exercise also.Still no fill, I called the Dr and he told me to increase my exercise watch my eating then if my weigh is at a stand still he will give me my first fill. I will try what he said and if my weigh doesn't change then I will be getting my first fill.
What will the New Year Bring??
Dec 27, 2006
Another Christmas has come and gone. This year it was hard only 3 weeks ago my mom was here. I know she is with my grandparents and my older brother and sister in Heaven. I want to set goals for the new year not resolutions. I want to have 50 off by March 14, that will be my 6 month anv. I want to reach onderland by the end of march. I hope to keep up and increase my exercise. I hope to wear a swim suit this year. I will probaly need a fill sometime in the new year, it will be my first. I also want to be the best person that I can be, not to give up on myself like I always did when I started the NEW YEAR DIET. It doesn't seem strange to write down my goals we had to do this at work every new year. I also plan to get a new job in 07. Wish me luck I have been looking since 2/06. I think my old employer is black balling me. Oh well enough for now.
Christmas with Mom
Dec 23, 2006
I lost my mom 2 weeks ago. She had a fatal heart attack and died quickly. I thank God that she didn't suffer too long. she was 76 yrs old and was 7 years out of by-pass surgery. it is hard to tell my grandkids that she won't be here this year. My grandson went to the grave site with us, he has autism and it's hard to find a person willing to watch him. My daughter was trying to explain to him that grandma was in heaven. She told him that her soul and heart went to heaven. He ask about her head and face? He justed wanted to know what happened to them. I can only guess that he understood about heaven and God. He does understand that Christmas is the birth of Jesus. It's been hard to pick myself up and get back on track with the band and exercising. My weigh is at a stand still. After Christmas I will call the dr and see if I need my first fill. i know that life goes on but when both of your parents and all grandparents are gone it is just hard to face holidays.
After The Holiday
Nov 26, 2006
Well, I was proud of myself. I didn't overeat because I have a husband and daughters who wouldn't let me. They saw what I had on my small plate and when I finished it they said "YOUR DONE". I wanted to go back for more but NO WAY would they let me. I and thankful for the support of my family. They also did the cooking and clean up so I wouldn't have a chance to pick. I did have a very small piece of pumkin pie. I haven't weighed myself, I do that on Monday mornings. I still don't have my first fill. If I'm still losing and not getting hungry then my doctor said he won't fill. I just love this band. Update on son-in-laws car they did total it but didn't pay it off completely. He thought he had gap insurance but they didn't put it on when he got the car. So he is using my DH's little ford.
old habits new lesson
Nov 09, 2006
Well yesterday my son-in-law wrecked his car. It will most likely be totaled. After I came home from helping him I found myself in the kitchen ready to eat goldfish crackers. I stopped myself, something I would not have done before. Instead of eating in the kitchen I cleaned off all my counters. I think my shrink is correct when he said "putting something around your stomach can change your outlook on everything". He is soo right. I have found myself stopping old habits and doing something different. My son-in-law came out of the crash with a small cut on his chin and ear. He is very sore today but alive.
