Happy 4th of July!

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!  I sure am.  Yesterday my husband, daughter, and I got out and went to have breakfast at the lake.  It really renewed my desire for a boat. I think that we need a new fence first though.  We worked in the yard a little and just spent time enjoying life.  This evening, we are going to a bbq at our friends house.  They have a pool.  They can also see the municipal fireworks from their house so we will watch them there. 

On the weightloss front, things are going better this week.  Bandster Hell sucks monkey balls!  I am really having to diet to have any loss.  My fill is 10 days from now.  I can't wait. 

I have started going with a friend from work to a tanning bed.  I look good, but those parts of me where the sun hasn't shown for 15 years aren't taking it so nicely.  I took a couple of days off to let those not be so pink.  I am feeling better today.

Happy Fourth Heather! I'm here for ya if you need to vent about Bandster Hell - You can get through it though - You are a strong woman 10 days will be gone before you know it.

I'm right there with you in bandster hell, but you are doing waaaaaaaayyyyyyy better than I am on the weight loss, so chin up girlfriend!

My first fill is 12 days away and I'm already bracing myself to not expect too much from it. I don't want to expect a big change and then be disappointed if it doesn't really give me any restriction.

Hang in there, you're not alone. :)

Whoever says getting the band is the easy way to weight loss doesn't know what the heck they are talking about. At least your surgery and pain is over girls. I'm freaking out about my surgery this Friday. :o

A fence or a boat??? Ah, the choices in life. :) I'd go with a boat.

My first fill is Weds. I'm not expecting much restriction with the first one. I can eat about anything right now, which is nice. I eat every three hours (yogurt, cheese stick...) a little something. That has helped me get thru Bandster Inferno.

Hang in there. You are doing great so far. My dr. told me if I lost anything before the first fill that was ME doing all the work and just icing on the cake.

Have a wonderful Fourth!

Hang in there through bandster hell. You're right in not setting your expectations too high for fill #1...most get little to no restriction until the 3rd or 4th.
It's something we all just need to get through...but it gets better on the other side of this period.

It gets easier...TRUST ME!

I hear you! My first fill is the 13th! I'm already trying to figure out when the next one will be :). Patience issues :)!

Too funny about the parts that haven't seen the sun. Me too. Maybe some spray on tan for those areas? I keep telling my hubby that I want a boat and he keeps telling me to just throw wads of money into the river!

Jenny said...

I hate spending money on things that aren't fun! Keep putting on your sunscreen and you'll fill in fine! I know its bad, but I love being tan!!

Bandster Hell absolutely does suck -- I gained 5 pounds during mine! But, Nella is right -- it definitely gets easier after that. Hang in there and try not to do what I did! :)
