I am still laughing from the very backward compliment I received today. I was conversing with a business person I hadn't seen for a while and I mentioned how the year seems to be flying by and soon it will be Valentine's Day. I then remarked how over time the little packages we used to get of Valentine hearts seem to have gotten a bigger and bigger and now you can buy candy hearts in the Costco size. This is where I nearly keeled over laughing...the said business person then commented "I've noticed you've lost a lot of weight...you should stay away from the candy hearts". I nearly howled. Yeah...that's it, those darn candy hearts did me in these past several years. I knew I'd get hooked on those little messages...my own little ecstasy pills...lol... Seriously, this woman has no brain filter marked "sifting out inappropriate comments". Anyway, I took the compliment part and ran with it. Even the crazy lady with no sense noticed I am changing ! Yipee!!!
On to other good times this week. I am very pleased to say that my second fill has given me a bit of restriction...not a lot but workable. I am using that in addition to my iron clad girdle approach to eating to stay on the course. I think it's working so far. It does feel good to at least have some sense of restriction. We'll see how it goes and then book my next fill in a month or so. It's funny, my doctor is so cautious, I had to almost barter for more than 1cc. Slow and steady wins the race seems to be their motto. I am getting used to being patient with this process. This is for the rest of my life and in the grand scheme of things, I've got lots of time (especially since I quit jaywalking...lol.)
I had wanted to post sooner but it's been so busy lately with work and family life, I will ask for all your forgiveness. I do check in almost daily to see how everyone is doing even if I don't have time to comment or post. I hope everyone is well and look forward to hearing about every one's adventures.
