How I'm Doing So Far

She sure showed me!

I'm talking about Betsy the Band. She showed me who's boss. Who's in charge. Who's driving this train.

Last night i went to a dinner meeting where they had vegetarian chili. it was very watered down and not a heck of a lot of beans in it. i only ate about 1/4 of a small cup of it and even though i wasn't particularly hungry, when i came home i nibbled on and finished a clif bar because i knew i needed more protein and calories.

since it went down rather smoothly, i thought maybe Betsy and my stomach had finally gotten acquainted and loosened their choke hold on me.

Not so.

this morning i ate a mini babybel light on the way to work. no problem. then i started in on my chobani greek yogurt. once again, took me about an hour to finish. sigh.

about an hour (11:45ish) later i drove to the foodstore to buy some fish and sweet potatoes from the deli for my lunch. i got back and thought hmmmm.... i really should try to eat some of this before my next slew of meetings. note.... i was not in the least bit hungry.

i managed about 3 small bites and that was it. Betsy said HELL to the NO missy!!!!!

So I closed up the container and put it aside.

I had a coffee from starbucks since I needed to go there for a job. I'm all of a sudden becoming a coffee drinker since the band. weird.

It's now 6pm and I'm home and just now feeling like tackling the fish and sweet potato again because I actually AM hungry.  Have to get some in before I go walking in about 20 minutes.

This Betsy chick has gotten awfully bossy since her fill.

I officially weigh in at the surgeon's office tomorrow morning (part of his agreeing to do the surgery is that you agree to weigh in weekly).

ladies... I can SMELL onederland. And boy does it smell GOOD

I can't wait to see your loss after you weigh-in tomorrow! I signed up for a 10 week program at the gym, to weigh in once per week to get us through the holidays. I would love to have the weekly weigh-in required, like you have. How many cc's do you have? I got 6cc for my first fill; I have restriction but I don't think what one would consider a "sweet spot". Proud of Betsy! ;)

I'm going to post both here and on your blog just in case you don't check back here.... wish blogger would allow you to always receive email alerts when someone's commented on a thread i have.....
the 10 week programme sounds good. I really like how accountable my surgeon's programme forces me to be. there's little to no chance of me doing my typical fall off the band wagon and stay on the ground licking my wounds act when i've got to weigh in weekly.
I'm soooooooooo.... happy to see you got 6cc too. after reading so many blogs where it seems everyone starts with itty bitty fills, i was scared... i've definitely got restriction and this could possibly be a sweet spot.... will ride it out and see how i feel. been guzzling ice cold water since i got back from my walk... all of a sudden dying of thirst.... it's nice to be able to take a big mouthful of water finally!

Good luck on the weigh-in! I have my fingers crossed for you.
