Goals, Goals, Goals...

My appointment went really well yesterday.  Since Dr. Ren and Gaspar weren't available until the end of the month they wanted me to see Frank.  Well, Frank is the devil and leaves me bruised for days after an adjustment with him.  So, I texted our very own pretty lady Jen and she recommended Laura.  Laura was great, she had a little trouble getting to my port, but apparently I have some scar tissue that can be mistaken for the port entry point.  

I had an esophagram just to make sure everything is still okay.  There have been some pains in my port area over the last couple of months and of course I knew that the band was broke and more surgeries were in my future.  Yeah, everything was fine, I was open and needed a fill, but other than that everything was good.  

Since I am so sensitive to fills we did a whopping .1 cc and decided that we would just do smaller fills, but more often.  I think this is a good plan, plus it will really help keep me focused on my band, which has been a major problem for me lately.

I have posted new goals on the "Goals" page up top.  Motivation should not be a problem right now, I am going to California in five weeks and my best friend Kate is getting married in November.  The goals that I have listed are based on me going to the gym at least three times a week.  I have only dropped two sizes since my surgery and I would really love to be in a 16 for California.  It's only one size, but I'm not sure if that is too aggressive.  It's a motivator though, right?

Good for you for getting in there and getting that fill! Me too with Laura, as you saw today... little fills will get you back there to the green zone!
Keep on keeping on...

Hi, new follower here! Just found your blog, after seeing you commenting around lately.

You're doing awesome with your band.

Glad you got in to see someone other than Frank the devil. :)
