How I'm Doing So Far

Betsy has ears

I've never read it in any official medical literature, but I am CONVINCED that lapbands - or maybe just Betsy - have ears.
For TWO weeks I've struggled to eat just about anything and most of what did go down ended up coming back up. MISERABLE.
So yesterday morning I called and made an appointment for a slight unfill with Dr D.
For lunch today I had some fish and potato salad. Not a huge amount, but for the first time in a long time I didn't just feel stuck.
This evening I had a whole mini babybel cheese round and it all went down and stayed down.
How does Betsy always loosen up or tighten up when I make that call??? I bumped into Dr D outside the hospital this evening and had a quick chat with him about it and he said I should just wait and see what happens and if I'm still getting food down, no need for the unfill.
I've said it before and i'll say it again - Betsy is a fickle little bitch!

On another note, I went for a bike ride this morning with a friend on a loaner bike. She was on a racer. I was not. I worked 10x as hard as she did and still felt I was forcing her to slow down. I've decided I like biking and living in the area I do now it's a great option.

So today i went to the local bike store and invested in one. Not cheap, but an investment in me and my health. I also bought this fantastic stationary trainer thing that essentially allows me to turn my bike into a stationary one... I figure with the hours I'm working and time about to change, available daylight hours are going to be hard to come by so this nifty contraption eliminates that excuse!

i've always wanted to bike!! that's a good looking bike (if that's the one you got).

I know they aren't cheap but like you said, they're def an investment!!

hope your band stops being such a PITA! :)

I used to love to Bike when I was thin. That was 33 years ago. I would like to get back to that place again. As for now I hate it, my butt gets so sore. LOL

The same thing happens to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I call to make an appointment. Crazy! Love the bike!

Love the new bike! My hubby is a bike enthusiast and even has a trainer that he hooks his bike up to inside as well!

Ronnie said...

That's an awesome idea - I need to look up this thing to make my bike stationary!

Good for you for investing in your health and buying the better bike... you deserve it.

And tell Betsy to act right or I'm gonna come down there and give her a stern talking-to. LOL Now I sound like a lunatic.
