HP~ You are so strong girl. I would have been all over the place. I will continue to pray for you. I hope you have a safe trip down to my neck of the woods tomorrow! Today was a little cloudy but nice temp wise.

The trip will help you take your mind off of everything...just relax...sit in the hotels hot tub and enjoy your child free self!

Gail..you are doing wonderful! I cant believe how much weight you have lost since Dec! Good job on your 2 lbs down this week! Hopefully when I weigh in officially on monday my scale will be nice. It hasn't been nice to me this week.

Would everyone please give me a sample of what you all eat in a day...I am just getting frustrated with my scale..I know I have to be patient...but grrrrr. I have been eating healthy and exercising and I just dont get it. :thumbup: okay..i will stop whining now...lol

ya...well...what can I do?? I just have to face it that he is looking real hard to make sure he has what he needs? It was all so tiny.....if I would not have had this testing done at all, and waited another 5 years...my outcome may be entirely different. Taking this as it comes seems to be the only way not to go crazy

Gail.....WOW!!!!Way to go girl.....

You guys are all doing wonderful....

Where is D hanging out????

All this whining is stemming from the fact my scale is still in my bathroom floor. omg...can you imagine what I am going to be like next week when my hubby hides it. All I can say now is....I'm sorry....I'm sooooo sorrrrrrrry. Nobody every said detox was easy...

I have such a love/hate relationship with that little square thing on the floor of the bathroom....I'm going to punch BOB now to get myself under control....

sorry again...lol

I need a sponsor....

oooh I had coffee tooo...sorry about that too....My family says I have diarrhea of the mouth when I drink that...but I have a lot of cleaning to do tonight... some how my house was nominated for a spur of the moment girls night tomorrow..

Traci, I am sorry you didn't find out anything!!!! What a bummer!! But like you said, better for him to be sure about everything than tell you one thing, and have it be the other.

I went for a ultrasound at 4 30 today and she did not see any stones, so that is good. She did see something that should not be in the renal pelvis....she didnt say much after that.....not sure what it means. I asked if were kidney stones, she didn't say yes or no....

Doc says if I have another attack over the weekend, to go straight to the ER.....I am a little scared to do that though, because, when I was first banded and I went to the ER, they didn't even KNOW WHAT THE DANG BAND WAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They had to look it up on the internet....how scary is that!!!! Mind you, I had my surgery an hour away from my home town, so there is not even a doctor here in town that does them. I kept telling them to call my band doctor, but you know ER docs...they don't listen all too well!!!! I just hope it is all good until Monday when the doc can see what the results of the ultrasound are!!!

D~ Did the dr look at the ultrasound pics? or were they sending them off to a radiologist? Sorry you didn't find any answers to your pain today. If you do have to go to the ER you should call your surgeon on your way there so he has a heads up and let him know what hospital you are headed too. Make sure you put his number in your cell phone if its not already there. I hope you feel better :thumbup:

HP~ how long did you wait before you had a soda? Do you let it get flat before you drink it? They told me to avoid sodas and the nurse the day of my surgery who also was banded said she was 4 years out and can drink a flat one now...what's the point of that, I like them fresh!

Im going to pray for everyone....we have all come too far to fall apart now. I am going to Sam's club and buying us the jumbo pack of super glue.

I did not drink any at all until 4 month after my surgery..and than it was just a few here and there. I cant always tolerate them...depends on what time of day and how long they fizzed out...

I was doing really well and only having a few a week..I have found that stress pushes me towards them more than food?? Go figure/

I want to stop though because I am doing well and loosing. I know if I keep the one here and one there....I am going to be drinking a 12 pack a week....

I use to drink at least a 24 pack and soft drink stops whenever we were out...

So...even 2 is better than that...

But it is no good for allot of reasons.

So...that is my struggle

Well...I think I am packed and ready to rock and roll...wooohooo

I will get some good pictures and post them when I can

Have a wonderful weekend everyone...

D...be careful out there riding and dont over do it.....

Love you all!!!!!

Finally had my "official" weigh-in at the doctor's yesterday - 200 even. So I need to lose about 2.6 lb per week between now and Oct. 6th to get down to 182. Haven't weighed 182 since 2002. I either need a time machine, or lots of time on the bike!! :thumbup:

Great challenge - thanks. KY

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
