How I'm Doing So Far

Friday, November 4, 2011


So I had the unfill last night taking me down to 3cc in my 10cc band.

Here's what's odd.

I have not had insatiable hunger pangs as I've had in the past with the unfills.

My capacity has not increased significantly as it has in the past with the unfills.

Eating does not hurt as it has for the past few weeks or so which is WONDERFUL!

This evening I was down to 140.2 on the scale.

That's 142lbs lost overnight. Ha Ha... can't believe I wrote that I weighed 242lbs yesterday. Old habits die hard.

Was at the physiotherapist again today and I had noticed that for the first time in a while my 'hip' wasn't hurting today. She could feel a significant difference in the muscles while doing the myofacial release and she did some strength testing and i was able to push back in ways I hadn't been able to do when I first saw her.

PROGRESS! She says if i'm like that on Monday then she'll proceed to strengthening exercises. YAY YAY YAY! Am cautiously optimistic that I'm on the road to recovery.

And, she suggested that I consider adding some yoga to my overall exercise mix. She says I don't have awful posture, but definitely improper posture which I shouldn't have considering I am strong. She said it has to to with not being aware of my body because of the rapid weight loss... that my brain hasn't caught up with my new body. There's some technical term she used to describe it and for the life of me I can't remember so I will make a note to get her to write it down when I go on Monday. I want to do some research on it and share it with you too!

I'm so glad you seem to be on the road to recovery - and woo hoo on the upsides of the unfill without the downsides. I've decided that - there will be no downsides - are you with me??

LOL I am so glad that you are feeling better, both with the fill and the hip issues!!!!

That is a win, win!

I'm a yogi!!

I do yoga at least 2 times a week and I LOVE it much much more now that I am 180 rather then 250! Let me know if you have any questions. Oh and one bit of advice. If you go to a class and you don't like it...don't give up try a different teacher. All are different and some are WAY better then others!

My unfill was not as light as I hoped. 2ccs out of mine for a couple of weeks. I still have about 25lbs to lose so I am a little scared!

So glad you are starting to feel better, and that you got a good level unfill!

My husband pointed out a few days ago that I need to quit saying that I weighed 278 when I told him my weight! Funny thing is, when I was 220 I would slip and say 120. So funny, wishful thinking then, and old habits now!!!
