How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Fill 'er up!

I went in this morning for a fill. It wasn't a big one, just a tiny tweak of .4 and I'm hoping it makes a difference!

Only a little bit of semi-bad news at my fill appointment, the tech said my pouch looks a tiny bit stretched out. She asked if I was waiting the appropriate amount of time after I ate to lounge or recline. And I have to admit, I haven't been as good with this as I need to be. I told her that and she said that was alright and that I should focus on that and it should correct itself in not too much time. So whew! After all, that is one of the reasons I wanted to get a fill, or at least get checked. At least I know now.

I am getting so excited about Chicago!!! I've signed up and paid for a few things, we are going to have a blast :)


  1. Hmmm - I've never heard you should wait before reclining. I'm glad it won't be an issue though.

    Can't wait to meet you in Chicago.

  2. So excited about Chicago! Only 30 more days!

  3. Glad you got a fill. Hopefully like she said you can just be careful and the pouch will correct itself.
