Is My Scale Broken?!

I am down another 3.5 lbs, I can't believe it!  In fact, I called Dr. Ren's office last week and asked to get in earlier than the 15th of April to get a little tweek.  They are going to squeeze me in on the 30th and let me keep my appointment on the 15th.

I mean I definitely feel a difference with this fill, I am getting stuck more frequently.  But, I hit my five month mark on Saturday and realized that I have never actually PB'd - is this normal?  I have gotten stuck on plenty of occasions - in fact I am stuck right now as I type this, but it usually goes down with in a minute or two.  Also,  the numbers weren't working for me the past two months and I feel like I am so behind.  I know that is not true - there is no behind or ahead - just your body doing it's own thing, but I really wasn't losing at all during that time.

This is how I felt this past week, but now that I am down 7 lbs in two weeks I am not sure what to do.  Maybe I will keep the appointment for the 30th and see how I feel on the 29th.  If my scale shows another great number then I will cancel and just go to the original appointment on the 15th.  Opinions, Suggestions....

This weekend was spectacular, the weather was amazing!  Saturday morning I actually went for a run OUTSIDE along the waterfront!  I was not very successful though, it's a lot harder to run outside than on a treadmill (for me at least). I think I am going to start training outside since my race is in a month.  I may have to go back to week three of C25K, but I'll build myself back up eventually.  The point was that I woke up on Saturday morning and could not resist the urge to go out there and get moving!  That is such an awesome feeling.  Sunday Dan and I broke out our bikes and went for a two hour bike ride.  I forgot our camera and my phone so I don't have any pictures to post, but it was beautiful.  We came back to the apartment and took a shower and then headed out to Hoboken, neither of us have ever been there before.  I would say that we walked around for a good hour just checking things out.  We had a drink at one of the bars and then walked down to the tapas place we picked out for dinner.  The food and wine was awesome!  Then on our walk back we stopped at this wine bar We didn't order any food, I was pretty full from our little dinner, but the wine selection was really good.  We might do the "Cult Cabernets" tasting this Saturday, it sounds really interesting.  It's a tasting of "little known Cabs with HUGE flavors and followings", there is a three course meal served as well.

I am surprised that I had a loss this week, I am really starting to LOVE my band again!  Well that's it for now!  I will be back soon to let you know the latest on the fill saga!

Sounds like a great weekend to me and congrats on the weight loss!

On the fill - I think it depends on how hungry you are. If you are not hungry and "looking for food," then you probably do not need a fill. And if you are losing, I would keep the fill where you are now.

The PB factor is not the test, IMHO. I have never had a full-on PB (where the food comes up), but when I am tight, right after a fill, I will have stuck moments.

It is nice to be able to actually eat and lose weight! But keep your appt. maybe and see how you feel in a little while?

Jealous about the wine!

Congrats on the great loss. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

You're lucky that you've never pb'd. It's no fun.

What time is your appt on the 30th? I have an appt with Gaper at around 1pm. Maybe I will see you there :-) Oh and can you share your scales with me? Mine dont seem to be working very well :-)

It sounds like a great weekend!
You have been blessed by the No-PB gods. Take it and run! lol
What Gen said, if you are full and not looking for food is the true test.
1/2 the time for me PB's are from taking 'just one more bite'. It's hard to train yourself to stop - but it sounds like you are a good bandster and are not constantly 'testing' your band like I do. :)
Congrats on the 3.5lbs!

I agree with Gen on the fill front.

Congrats on the weight loss -- that is really great!

Isn't it such a great feeling to actually want to get moving and get out and do something?! I love that and have noticed that it is happening to me much more frequently as well. I too get a hell of a lot more winded running outside than on the treadmill :)
