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.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
