That's right. My dear brother and sis-in-law are going to babysit for us tonight and my husband and I are going on a date. We're going to paint the town red! I am so excited...maybe he'll take me to a soda shoppe and we'll have cheese burgers and chocolate milkshakes. can dream. Actually, he has been helping me stay on track and with the good advice and encouragement of my fellow bloggers, I was able to get my fill moved up to this Wednesday!! Yipee! It's time to get this party started! I feel good that I haven't gained any weight, but I would like to start utilizing my band thank you very kindly. I am excited now. I have felt a lot more positive since dear blogger buddy Band Groupie shared with me that it took 4.5 months before she had restriction. She's done fantastic so I can do it too! Gosh...I just love my blogger buddies. This journey wouldn't be the same without you! Cheers to you all...clink, clink.

I feel a renewed sense of optimism today. Maybe it's the gorgeous sunny weather we are having, or the hints of Spring all around but I am feeling super-duper happy! I want to do cartwheels. I will refrain though, my physical fitness isn't quite there yet, but you can bet that I will be able to do it one day soon. I wonder what other fun things I'll be able to do when I've lost 50lbs, or 75lbs or 100lbs? What about you...what fun things were you able to do at different tell...enquiring minds want to

Have a great time! It took me about 3 months to get decent restriction, more like 4 to hit the sweet spot.

After about 30 pounds I was able to do many more things exercise and activity wise - including going back to Pilates class, and even more exciting, getting back to skiing!

Good luck with the fill - I always say get as much fill as you can in the early months!
