Dr D gave me back .5cc of the 1cc he took out 2 weeks ago. I think he was a bit skeptical about my true need for one considering I lot 2.6lbs this week, but I assured him that I was doing all the work and not the band so he gave me a bit back.
And it worked. I definitely am not as tight as I was at 6cc, but tighter than I was at 5cc.... and this 5.5 is more comfortable than I was at 6 even before it got swollen and bothered.
So I feel I'm at a good place right now. And now that all the holiday madness is over and I'm no longer faced with tables and tables of appetizers and desserts, I am in good shape.
I brought in what was left in a container of my mom's super duper split pea soup for lunch, but on the way to work I noticed Shepard's Pie on the menu board for a local restaurant. I LOOOOOVVVVE and have been seriously crazing shepard's pie for ages so even though I brought lunch I decided to go get some to eat for dinner and over the weekend.
I only ate a wee bit of soup at about 10:30 so at 3 was cold and hungry so opened up the shepard's pie..... i am sooooooo disappointed. it's not shepard's pie at all. it's a huge chunk of spicy meatloaf and mashed potato with some cheese on it. blech.
