I was very excited this morning to discover I had gotten rid of 6 lbs. since last week!  My mini goal of reaching 100 lbs down by Christmas is definitely looking attainable.

I get my first fill on 11/28, and I'm conflicted about it.  I went to support group on Wednesday and I said how I've been doing well and not hungry, and the nurse that runs the group suggested maybe I don't need a fill yet.  What?!?  My band isn't even doing anything for me yet.  If I don't need a fill, why did I get surgery?  This has been swirling around in my head since she suggested it.  It has me questioning everything...which of course is what I do anyway. 

I decided I'm going in for the fill.  I'm sure they will give me the minimum fill, and I'll see what this band can do.

I got the first edition of Just Dance for the Wii.  Maria has been talking about how good it is, so I decided to try it.  Let me tell you, that game kicks my butt!  Talk about cardio.  The good thing though is that I love to dance, so I love the game.  Working and out and having fun at it means I will keep doing it!


  1. You are doing so great!! My first fill is scheduled for Dec 8 and I am super nervous about it. I will be waiting to see how yours went!!

  2. I love my Just Dance.... but the 2nd and 3rd ones are much better than the 1st. You'll see! Have fun! It sounds like you really are dancing your Ass Off... Literally! Wow! 6 pounds in a week is amazing! I feel that the band helps more with maintenance than loss... but it does help with both. See you soon, I'll be home tuesday night! Yay! *M*

  3. Beth I did not get a fill for nearly 13 months post surgery, and I lost 85 pounds. Some of us have good restriction with just the band in place. if you are not hungry and losing do not get a fill, if you become too tight, you will have many more issues. Trust me on this one.

    If you are only able to eat 1/2 cup of solid protein, you truly do not need one yet.

    You are doing fantastic!

  4. Wow, congrats on a huge loss this week!
