The Last Fill?

I popped in for my hastily made fill appointment this morning. I still love, love, love the new nurse practitioner and she obliged me with a beautiful but tiny boost of saline.

While there I had the chance to have a look at the nurse's teaching materials and pulled some references for research about the lapband. luckily I like reading research and have access to journals at the university. I will try and pop in to look them up next week. (Maggie is her name) again told me about some of the problems some of her patients are having in finding success with the band. I really wish I could crack that code and work out why it is working so well for me but not so well for others. Who knows if it is related to physical placement of the band? some nerve that works for me and not for others, or some behavior thing I have done or figured out?

My post fill afternoon has been good. My tight-factor seems back to normal (normal tight that is). I slowly sipped my tea and even had a coffee this afternoon that I only bothered to finish 1/2 of. Dinner was a 1/2 cup of split pea soup and a bite of David's thin crust pizza. I did pop in a few pieces of chocolate while I helped to set up for our neighborhood Halloween party today.

Tomorrow we are having an open house at our house while I help to host a neighborhood Halloween party.

I think that the problem with the band could be that it doesn't stop you eating the rubbish, I struggle with this.
Enjoy your party!

THE DASH! said...

I agree with Alison. After a while of having the band it's still too easy to slip back into bad habits. The difference is you are probably balancing the good with the bad or moreso eating more good than bad. I know that's the case with me. And girl, we are the success stories x

I honestly Give credit to our blogging, the support we give each other( sometimes a kick in the azz when we need it) keeps our head in the game. Happy Halloween!
