A little 80s music for you there in my post title.
Turns out, as I expected, I cannot get in for a fill until September. Really? How, I ask you, HOW is this acceptable? When I spoke to the gal who books fill appointments today, I was very honest and told her that as much as I appreciate her and Dr. K, I am getting fed up with the overbooked schedule and the fact that there is no emergency support for bandsters, and that I am starting to consider going elsewhere. Once I said that, she magically found me an appointment two Mondays from now. It's in the morning, so I wouldn't be able to make it anyway because I'm working. Grrrr. I'm going to try to get someone to cover it, so I can actually go and get on with losing weight. In the meantime, I will be investigating some other docs in the area to see if the situation is any better elsewhere.
Having said that, I am not going to use this fill delay as an excuse to be a pig and eat whatever I want. I do have a fair amount of restriction still in the sense that I am satisfied for a good three hours after I eat. As long as I put in a little effort and make good choices, I know I can still lose this month. It might not be 8lbs, but I know I could make 5 for sure. Hell. I could beat 8 if I really wanted to.
Thursday will be my triumphant return to the gym. Well, maybe not so triumphant, but I'm going. Me and the treadmill have some catching up to do.
