40 lbs gone

Went to see my Doctor for a 6 mo check up. I am still on blood pressure meds, but according to them I have lost 40 lbs. My wt was 242 last time I was there and today I am 202 :). I am going with the start wt of 242 not 239, I know 3 lbs is not that much but I love the 40 lbs gone! I started in a size 20 pants and 3x top I am now in a size 16 and 1x top. If I ever get to taking pics of some close I will post them. I have some 3x casual jackets and 20 Capri jeans. If you want them site unseen e-mail me with your address.

My band and I are getting along very well.NSV#1. I do not feel I am at the "green zone" but really close. I am glad I did not have a fill last week as I am working on my relationship with my band. I have not had any Pb's or up chucking, yippee! I still get hungry about every 2 to 3 hours, but small amount of food satisfy me. I did start counting calories, and I am keeping it at about 1200 per day. I have also stepped up my exercise to 3,4 or 5 time a week. I am 3 lbs from oneunderland. And my hubby called ME skinny the other day. I think he was horny but I still loved it. NSV #2. Saterday I painted my entire kitchen. this is somthing I could not have done in a day 6 mo ago, NSV #3.

No fill for me and looking for name for "the band"

It seams I am full. Full of what I am not sure. I am feeling like I need to learn a little more about my band before I am any fuller. I do need to name my band because it had taken on almost a life of its own. So we are working on working together and it really needs a name instead of just "The Band". I am sure it is a she. because she is not very tolerant of some of my behaviors, but I love her and want her to be my friend. What are some of the names you have heard out there?

Do I need a fill?

I have a appointment on Monday for a fill. Do I need One? I can eat about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of food at a time. I have PB or up chucked about 4 time in the last 2 weeks. One was on bread, I will no longer try to eat it. One was on spaghetti, I think it was the ground beef, so skipping ground beef. And one was chicken salad, chicken was dry and it was in a restaurant, Poo that sucked the 1st restaurant PB. I had leftovers last night and thought all was well and nope up it came. Too dry. Is this just learning what I can eat or am I at the green zone? I still get hungry between meals after about 3 hours and a small snack helps. But I have only dropped a few lbs the past 2 weeks. Do I need a fill????????? Oh PS I am liquids today.

Alls good in band camp

My last fill has been great. I am eating very little and not getting hungry. I have an appointment next week for a fill, how do I know if I need it or can handle it? I just went behind my office an picked a handful of blackberry's. Very Yummy. Cant wait to go to our family cabin on Friday. This is my most favorite place in the world. It is on the salmon river in Klamath National Forest. We have 100 acers of beautiful land. My sons and grand kids are coming too. I will post pics next week maybe even some of me. And we will be spending a day at Mathews Creek, the best swimming hole in the land. When I die I want my ashes to go into Mathews creek so I can swim forever.
