Back to Basics - like, for reals.

Whoa baby. Today's fill has really brought me "back to basics." I have a band in there. You know that contraption that helps you lose weight??? DUH!!! I'm sipping, not guzzling. I had soup (about 3/4 cup) for lunch...and I am still satiated (that's a word I haven't used in a while!) I CAN survive on small amounts!!! I can sip, sip, sip.

I was even going to whip out my Lap Band Bible. (the thing I carried around with me everywhere the first few months...) BUT I can't find the darn thing. In the process of looking for it I did clean out the china closet - where junk mail goes to die. I will find it...and post some schtuff from it because it is a really helpful little book!!!

NSV: I went to the local cafe and picked up Chris's supper. A mouth watering chicken fried chicken, fries, green beans and rolls. I cut up his chicken (because he is spoiled and I always cut his meat) and didn't even want a bite!!! I just sipped on my tomato soup like a good bandster!!!

Right now my tummy is growling and I know that I got nowhere near enough calories, protein, etc today. (I tried Muscle Milk this am....eeewwww grossssss) so I will sip my "cut" tea (unsweet with a splash of sweet from Sonic) and go to bed.  A grumbly tumbly kind of makes me happy - it means I am on track!! AND the track is where I will be first thing in the morning!!! (I tend to ramble more on an empty stomach!!!)
QUESTION: so, what's the deal with option to follow blogs you are already following using "Friend connect" It sooo confuses me!!!


  1. Oh yah, I hope you have a lot of success with this fill!

  2. I would love to hear about what's in your Band Bible :) Congrats on the rumbly-tumbly and hope you have a great day today !

  3. I am so glad to hear what it is like on the other side. I can't wait for my first fill.

  4. YAY for your fill!! Yay for avoiding fried chicken! That is hard hard hard!

    Not sure about the friend following...blogger confuses me most days!

  5. Glad your fill is working for you. : )

  6. Grrr- I have the same trouble Following people. Yay for staying away from fried chicken.

  7. I want that feeling back soooooo bad! I have a fill this Friday - here's hoping!

  8. I have no idea what this friend connect thing is all about. Ugh. I'm curious about it too, though.

    And good luck with the fill.

    Oh, and come cut my meat? :D LOL
