Sore muscles

I am hurting today, ouch. But in a good way. Guess I some of the workout yesterday was fine. I will be having a weigh in on Tuesday since that is the day of my last "first" fill.

Onto other things, we are a wacko family. We just bought tickets to Bergen Norway for Christmas. My bf´s sister lives near there and we were joking that if we found flights for us both ways under $500 that we would book it. Well... I found it and we booked it. Then I called my "sister in law" and asked what she was doing at 3pm on December 20th, she was like hmm I will be at the airport to send my kid to Iceland and I said "brilliant, then you can pick us up while your at it". The reaction was nice, we have spent Christmas with them for so many years that I cant imagine not doing it this year as well. Besides we knew we would be super welcome that is why we booked it before we told them.

Now I just have to wait for Christmas well only 94 days to go! December 24th will be here before I know it and that is also why I bought the first presents today.

1st day at the gym

I couldn't resist to buy a new membership at 50% off and it last out this year. I bought one for me and one for the bf. And we went today, not that he needs it. He irritates me when he starts talking about how fat he has become, he is only 172 pounds and 5"7 so shut up lol. But he is supportive and that is what counts the most. I am going to try to go to the gym 4 times but this next week will be lucky if I can manage 2 times. I have lab work at college 3 days in a row which is quite a lot but after the next two weeks I am able to go at least 4 times per week. I have chosen three times a week as my minimum and that should be so doable. I am also going to pay for a session with a physiotherapist and have him/her make a program for me, hoping to get my shoulder back to semi normal and my. Well that is all for today, going to go shopping with the bf and maybe the kid and then I am going to make Chile con carne mmmmmm so good.

only 3 days but I feel some difference

Its Friday and I have lost 2.2 pounds since Tuesday, I am fully aware that it is water weight but I dont care. I do feel a difference after the fill. Most importantly I feel a mental difference in the way I eat and how much I put on my plate. I am only at 4 ml and I am far from the green zone but knowing that my band is filled a bit is helping me mentally to not gorge on food like I used to, because honestly who wants to get stuck.

I just booked our rental car for Orlando next May. This rental business has taken forever to decide. I ended up using my Jetblue code and rent through Hertz, now lets hope that they give us a 4 door not a 2 door car haha.

I am done for today, going to watch House hunters international and then cook and do my essay on the use of medicinal larvae/maggots for wound treatment.

A great blogger lady just had her revision to VSG today and I am so happy for her, as it has been quite a struggle. Cant wait to hear how it went, keeping her in my prayers and thoughts.

ouch I had a fill

So I went for a fill today, I was scared. My port flipped last year when a X-ray doctor did a fill for me and now my port lies like 45° to the right, and that means a fill not done under an X-ray is bad bad bad. Anywhoot, my surgeon said that I still had 1 ml in my 10 ml band. Which is odd because the amazing X-ray doctor I got last time kept trying to empty it and he didnt get anything more out of it and the figure he told me fit to a tee. Well my surgeon put 3 ml in now so that means I am up to 4 ml. He agrees with me that this whole gallbladder business is beyond ridiculous and hopes it is over now. I am so glad he didn't scold me for gaining this last year.

We sat and looked at my X-rays to try and figure out why my band has been grumpy since I had trouble getting fills ever since my gallbladder removal surgery last october. I have started to think that if this band does not start working like it should, then maybe I should think about the sleeve. My surgeon has moved to Iceland and will start doing them here but I do not want to have to do that. I love my band but I do not love it when it wont allow more than 4-5 ml in it and that amount is not working for me, I was almost at the perfect green zone when I had 6.9 ml in it last fall.

How long do you wait between fills? I am not used to him being here every week so I am not sure how long I should wait. I think I am going to give this fill at least 2-3 weeks before I start contemplating getting another one.

Green zone beware. I am coming for you

Leaving a tough summer behind me

I am going for a fill on Tuesday. I currently have nothing in my band since it was unfilled for the 3rd or 4th time in less than a year in June, and I have had 3 ERCP´s this summer the last two were just one week between them. I am so hoping this whole gallstone problem is behind me but I am just not able to fully believe it.

I am planning on losing about 36 pounds in the next 8 months as I want to be in the two figure weights when I go to Orlando in May. Yes I have booked our trip, we are going May 19th and flying back home on June 4th. I also booked a house with a private swimming pool for us in a gated community, and I think it is utterly ridiculous that it is cheaper for us to rent a villa than to stay in a hotel.

Back to the fill. I am kind of scared to go, my surgeon is the one doing the fill and I am afraid to tell him that since this whole gallbladder and continuing gallstone problem has seen me gain just about 22 pounds since last October, I know I have been unfilled for most of that time but it is still annoying and disappointing to have gained weight.

Here are a few quotes that hit home.
