I've Got a "filling"

Yesterday was FILL DAY!!!! It was completely painless....I actually felt the saline going in. It felt really weird!!! Then I had to do the oh - so - yummy barium swallow test!!! It was kind of cool seeing it go down on the x-ray. I drank my water and off I went. (I got 4cc's and found out I have a 10 cc band)
I got home and drank my evening coffee...then I started feeling crummy =( I had only had 1 protein shake all day so I think I was just "hungry." I sipped on some vegetable beef broth and went for a walk. I only walked 2 miles because I just wasn't feeling great. I came home, had a little bit of a protein shake and went to bed.
I woke up this morning - LATE - and didn't drink any coffee. I had a couple of protein shakes during the day and then tonight I made a smoothie with a Special K shake with ice and a tablespoon of peanut butter. It was delicious!!!! My walking partner was back today and we walked 3 miles. I love how I feel after I've walked!!!
I only have about 3 and a half weeks left until school starts. I think I am actually ready!!! I miss my kiddos and my co-workers. AND I miss having a routine. I am spending this summer taking care of my elderly grandparents...but it's a lot of sitting and I get bored!! On the upside, I do have all of my lesson plans done for the first six weeks!!!
My next fill is scheduled for August 16th. I am so glad I made the decision to have surgery. Everyday I get compliments from people - after only 25 (the official weight loss according to my surgeon's scale) pounds down!! I'm feeling better every day!!!!

  1. Getting those fills feels slightly surreal, huh? And you always feel a little shell shocked after. Congrats on how well you're doing.
