No Fill today!!!!

So I have so much GREAT news to share!!!  So I will start out with the latest event.  I had what was suppose to be my second fill appointment today.  I was a little concerned since I did not feel like I had lost as much weight as I had hoped this last month.  Well the big scale time came and......"oh my gosh Jane you have lost another 16 pounds in the last month!"  I guess I did not think it was as good as that but never argue with nurse who is weighing you!  LOL  So yeah me!!  The nurse did her usual quick questions and blood pressure and said that they would be right with me.  Well here came my doctor!  I typically see the PA so it was nice that my doctor came in and was very excited with my progress.  We talked about a few of my problem foods and he pretty much felt that was very normal.  So then the question came up to fill or not to fill.  My suggestion was to maybe do a half cc rather than a whole one or maybe not do a fill.  I want to keep going full steam ahead I told him but I also told him I think I am getting the whole behavior modification thing figured out finally!  Also Tony and I joined the gym so I knew that exercise would help my weight loss so the decision was made......that I am in control.  No fill today and when the scale stops dropping or I feel that I need more restriction I am to give him a call.  Dr Rohrscheibe said that they are finding that many times the behavior modification is more important than the tightening of the band.  He felt that since I have had such wonderful success thus far that I should try to continue at the 4cc mark in my band and see how far that takes me and then when I need a little help we still have plenty of room to fill  if I need it.  I was so happy after this appointment.  Like I said, I was a little down since the holidays well were filled with lots of treats but yet I still was able to continue to lose weight even though it did not seem as much as I would have liked but overall, how can I complain since I have lost 64 pounds since Sept 28th???  I can't complain!!!

Another huge thing this week was that Tony and I both joined the gym in Rantoul and we both have gone and worked out.  I think I will really enjoy my time there once I get a routine set up.

Life overall is good.  The kids are back to school so that is always good to get them back in their routine.  Work is all right.  I have been a little stressed out overall but I think it is just the January blues.  There are so many changes in my life right now that sometimes it seems a little crazy. 

I challenged everyone to make some "new years resolutions" last post.  So have you been doing anything to help improve your life, healthy, or  relationships?  It is not to late to make a change!  Hope all is well with you and until next time, Take care!
