Mad Monday Weigh In (On Wednesday)!! & Hump Day Happenings!

YIKES!! Wednesday already?!?!?
I didn't post Monday but I did weigh in! Here you go! 207.4! Loss of 1.4 lbs!! YAY ME!! Great food and exercise last week and it paid off.
So my totals are:
67.4 lbs down since 8/22/12!
52.8 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!

Now to do that again this week! Blue Bell Ice cream has slowed me down the last couple of days but the scale is still dropping :)

OK Hump Day Happenings!! I have been slammed the last few days trying to get things caught up for our business since that is now my primary focus. And I still have SO much to do!!

My dilemma?!?! I am having surgery on July 31st to put some of those lady parts back up because they have fallen and I am apparently going to be down for like 6 - 8 weeks.... Oh baby!! I have some cramming to do! I have to get everything done before then....

SO I have been working 10 - 12 hour days trying to get it all done. I am working from home and the kids are out of school right now so it is not without it distractions. I have come up with a schedule (I have to have one so the kids pretend I'm not here). But they still like to bug me. :-P

My daughter found a place to complete her 24 hours of community service because of her bad choice in May. It's close to home and she can complete some of the work from the house too. We are trying to get everything taken care of before school starts beginning of August. I have to take her there this morning, then come home and work for a couple more hours and then to the doctors.

I have my 9 month follow up today. WOW!!! Has it really been 9 months since I was banded?!?!?! I am going to talk to them about my weight. I think I am stuck! I looked back and I haven't really moved in a month. I don't think they are going to see any loss on their scale. I might get a small fill. I don't think I need much. If I do get a fill it will be my 7th one. I haven't had a fill since mid May. We will see how that goes. I also am speaking to the nutritionist and the psycologist that I have been seeing. After that, back home to work some more!

Since it's my bandiversary I will post pictures later. Even though they haven't really changed in the last 2 months.

OK I have to bail y'all! Time to get back to work. I will try really hard to update tonight!

Remember!! Happy thoughts, positive talk, hard work, and lots of love! We are going to get to where we want to be!

Have a great day!!


  1. Way to go, great loss! It sounds like things are crazy busy and just going to get crazier! Make sure you take care of yourself. :)

  2. Happy Bandiversary, and congrats on the -1.4 lbs :)

  3. Good job! Hope everything with your surgery goes well!

  4. Adventures of the incredible shrinking woman, who goes by the name Chris:) Congratulations on your successes!

  5. I hope all goes well at your bandversary appointment! Congrats on the loss!! That is aweseome!! :)

  6. Wow, 6-8 weeks is a long time to be down after surgery. I remember you had a hard time taking it easy after your last surgery, and this sounds like an even longer recovery. Hope it goes OK, and it can't hurt to consult everyone at your bariatric practice first. Hope you got some good tips.

    Great weigh-in! You are doing terrific, especially considering all your recent upheavals!
