Back on Track

Finally! Lost 2 lbs. last week!! Still a bit above my lowest......about 1.5 lbs, but I feel like I'm in control again. That is a good feeling!

Friday I had my 4th fill for a total of 6 cc. I didn't realize the last time I had a fill was a few weeks before Thanksgiving, so that may help explain my increased food intake. When I ate yesterday I definitely felt the restriction more than I have in awhile, so that makes me feel more secure. I asked about the "first-bite syndrome" and the PA says quite a bit of people have it but they have no explanation for it. I'm going to try eating a few crackers or something before my meal....we'll see how that works. 

The hubby and I have booked our vacation to Vegas for July! I'm so excited and it's going to be a GREAT reward after graduation from nursing school! 8 nights, 9 days of pure relaxation and freedom from reality! That reminds me, have any of you flown since you were banded? Do I need to get something from my doctor or from Allergan saying I have this device in my body? Also, I'm wondering if there's something I can get for discounted buffet prices in Vegas, seeing as I don't eat that much. Any ideas about either subjects would be helpful!!

Now that I'm back on track I can't wait to weigh in on Wednesday! 

I hope all of you are getting back on track since the very challenging holidays!! My next challenge = start moving!! I hate exercise, but I have to start. 

Have a great week everyone!!


  1. I totally have first bite syndrome... drives me CRAZY! So glad to hear that you are back on track! Keep up the good work this week!! xx

  2. Great loss! That's a long time in Vegas...what are y'all planning to do?

  3. About the buffet thing--My boyfriend's parents both had RNY and their surgeon gave them a card that said that restaurants have to let them order off the children's menu due to the surgery. I didn't go to the same facility as they did for surgery, but I didn't get one from my medical posse. Of course, I didn't ask for one either, so that could be why. But, wouldn't hurt to check.

  4. Congrats on the loss. I too have to get moving more this week too.

  5. Congrats on the loss! I've flown several times since being banded and never had a problem with getting through the airport scanners or with my band being tight when I fly.

  6. I found you on the BOOBS blog... I look forward to following your journey. *Maria*~DiZneDiVa: Blogger from "This One Time at Band Camp... 1 Vs. 300 Check out my journey at
