    Hello... I am one that has left...I loved the site when I first came... and I learned lots...I was not in the site 24/7 like some here...I tried to be a voice to some and like many of you have stated..if you didn't say what some one liked they bashed you...and I was doing great....I knew the bashing was from ones not doing so great...I didn't and don't care who likes or dislikes me....I hated seeing the MEANESS I was seeing.... I am not a mean person and I remember where I started...I did fallow my Drs orders to the best of my ability....I was afraid not to....but then I started reading how some ate pizza 3 days out or this or that and I really worried about newbies thinking...WOW you mean I can eat that and I wont hurt my band....the ones that posted were more BULLIES then concerning friends....and I didn't care for that either...so yes I went to FB and stay with a bunch of girls..that arnt always 100% agreeable but we do listen and were are all allowed to have our own opion... I wish you all well... ~hugs~
  3. Oh YEAhhh SOX !!!

    A New Day

    Hello girls... I have been goin all day here...My dr apt went great...he said my band looked fine...and he gave me a fill but wouldn't tell me how much he put in....but as he was filling he asked the nurse what did you have in there and she said 10.....and he said well I just pulled one more cc out...and when he was done and I was sitting up I seen the syrange and I told he looks like you put 8 in....and he had a smirk...so I think im right ! He said im going to gain a lil weight back and he wants me to o...I told him nope not gonna happen I will just work harder...LOL He doesn't need to see me for 3 months.. Isaiah had a football game tonight and they WON !!! I got to work in the concession stand so I stayed warm....CJs nurse woke me last night to tell me CJ got ill and she cryed and his bellie bloated so she stopped his feeding...He stayed home today,Kaleb layed in his bed this morning and said he was taking CJ to school today..they both loved it... OOO I was trying to push CJ up in his crib tonight and didn't know my own streanth...I cracked his head against the head board....he cryed...and I cryed...but he forgives me and is smiling again !!!

    Carole you are so positive all the time....its so refreshing...funny about the alarm clock....I only use my cell phones alarm....that vibrating on my night stand wakes me right up.. And yes like any good mom my boys are stars in my eyes and heart.... So sad watching the news today at the navy yard in DC...

    A New Day

    Oh Janet...so good to hear from you...laughing you need to barrow some of Cjs diapers for bed time !!! Your daughter looks beautifully pregnant...what a exciting time...and like Carol said...a few short weeks tables will be turned....so proud of you... I went for my GI and the tech that took it said with out Fluid in my band he couldn't tell to good about how big or small the pouch was soposta be...he did think it looks a lil he wasn't sure how to word it...he said a slip usually is the bulk of the stomach comes above the band....he thought if anything.. mine looked like there wasn't much of a pouch....I see the surgeon tomarrow...so we will see....
