2 weeks measurements

It's been two weeks since I got banded. I took measurements before my surgery and I was going to wait until the one month mark to measure again, but I just couldn't wait. So I wanted to share them with you. Now I'm sure you all understand why I measured my middle in 3 different spots. When you're big and you have rolls, you've got different sizes. So here's my progress: DAY OF SURGERY MEASUREMENTS: 06/28/2009 BREASTS: 47” UPPER GUT: 42” BELLY BUTTON: 47.5” LOWER GUT:

My First Week

Well it's been a week since I've been banded and this afternoon I'm going to see my doc for my first check up. I have to admit that this has been easier than I thought it would be. Mentally, on a scale of 1-10 my struggles have been about a 5. Physically, my struggles have been about a 3. I was really expecting some nausea and haven't had any thank God. I do not do well with nausea. I've dropped 10 pounds but I'm not jumping for joy yet. My surgeon was hesitant to do the surgery with such

I Found Satisfaction

Throughout my life I've had plenty of Slim Fast drinks. The problem with them was I would drink them as a drink with my meals. I could chug a chocolate Slim Fast shake in about 4 gulps then move on to my cheeseburger and fries. So I stayed away from them. Hadn't had one in years. Well being in Kuwait, the price of everything is jacked up. I was looking to buy some protein powder but the jumbo jar was about $80. Not happening. So until my protein gets here that I just ordered from drugsto

48 hours after getting banded

It's been two days since I got banded. The pain is almost gone. The children's liquid motrin they prescribed for me is just right to knock out the little bit of pain. I'm bloated and that's making me uncomfortable, but that's about it. I was out running errands today with my husband. I can't pick up my toddler and that's driving us both crazy. I haven't eaten chewable food since 2200 Saturday night. I'm just now recognizing that I'm hungry. I'm enjoying some tomato soup right now and it'

Band Day

When I was in the hospital I wrote the following in a notebook: It's 0745. I'm sitting on my hospital bed waiting. I got here about 30 minutes ago. The nurses are nice. They made me put on a disposable gown and hairnet. They gave me an IV port and shot me with an antibiotic that hurt for a few seconds. So I'm sitting here wanting to write down the reasons why I'm doing this so in the next couple of days when I'm regretting it I can look back. I have 2 photos of my 17 months old daughter
