Band and dating...and more..



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Sorry for being MIA for a while, too much has been going on. As some of you might remember, shortly after being banded in February, my port had flipped and I had to have another surgery to fix it. I'm a self pay so it took a while to coordinate al the details. My dr. is fabulous and worked out to do the correction at the surgical center, without charging me his fee. He filled me to 2cc at the time of the surgery. With that I had just a tiny bit of a restriction and the following week he brought me up to 2.5cc. I definitely understand the PBing, sliming and all of your other terminology now! Ouch, you learn your lesson pretty fast. So I'm back on track after a major set back and feel very excited about it.

Now on a personal note: I met an incredible man and we have been dating for the last few months. One of the most difficult moments of my life was explaining the surgery to him. Obviously, I couldn't avoid him seeing my scars at some point :D . Well, I told him and his first reaction was puzzlement ("you are so beautiful...I don't understand...I love your body..") and then unbelievable support. :Bunny

I have met his friends and his family and will meet his parents next week. We have been pretty much living together for about three weeks now and have talked about our future, kids, life and all. I know he is "The One" and he knows that I am "The One" for him too. He told me he loves me and I love him too. We are going to Mexico for my birthday in two months and will be moving to his new house sometime in the summer.

It is amazing how things sometime just fall into place. I never understood what people meant when they said "I just knew.."

Well, I just know...that my life will be so happy with him and that he will be my best friend forever.. My friends, who never liked any of my ex-boyfriends absolutely love him.

I'm just so happy I could fly right now and wanted to share it with you.

band and dating = "a cheap date"

Cant eat much and only takes a little bit to get drunk.

"I'm glad i've been married 16 years and dont have to mess with the dating scene"

good luck to you.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
