It’s lunch time and I’m still sitting here with bed hair and sporting a soup stained PJ top. Soup as in potato soup that my mom so lovingly made from scratch for me … very delicious on most normal days but even the very very soft potatoes seemed to have gotten stuck a bit above the band.
The other day I was able to put in baked white cheddar Cheez-Its and ate them just fine but earlier … ugh.
I so wanted to go to Tabor’s Church Bazaar this afternoon but I do not think I’ll be able to eat any chicken or dumplings for that matter. 😦
Again, NO COMPLAINTS from my 8.5cc’s but … this is really taking me awhile to adjust. Don’t get me wrong here… I thought I’d have restriction immediately after my lap band surgery wayyyyyy back in June but I had nothing. And nothing after my 1st fill … and even more disappointing… no restriction after my 2nd fill either.
So you can perhaps imagine my shock (and happiness) that I have been getting nothing BUT restriction with my 3rd fill …. last night drinking water slowly almost was an upset too but it eventually went down fine.
Today I do feel smaller around my waist. I need to go weigh myself but have no desire to go back to my full-time gig till when I go back to work on Wednesday. It’s there that I weigh myself. On a certain scale. I am pondering the thought of actually buying my own scale but I kind of like the fact, I only use one right now and again it’s not in my home. I use the one at work and I use the one at my surgeon’s office. I wish I had access to that one more frequently.
And I don’t even know if this is possible but I think I can feel my face/neck area getting firmer. Could that be true? Maybe it is more like I can feel it tightening up and not so flabby??? I don’t know.
But let me tell you this … I WILL shower and change into regular clothes but I do not feel like leaving my apartment. At. All. Today is going to be a complete day of doing absolutely nothing. It’s going to be so awesome.
