A small rant

Surgery yesterday went well. Now I have a stent in place for the next three weeks which means I'm limited to light walking as far as exercise goes. I was so ready to get back to things, and now I have to put them off a little longer. Maybe I'll do some of the balance games on Wii Fit just to say I did something.

The thing I have to rant about is my fill, or lack thereof. I can't get an appointment until AFTER Chicago! So so so so SO frustrated with that! The thing is, I probably could get in a little earlier, but I just can't ask for any more time off after all this kidney stone nonsense. At least you all will be spared the possibility of seeing me PB!

I'm going to stop myself from whining too much about that because you know what? There is no excuse for me to use this as a weight loss vacation. I CAN make some progress without a fill. The lack of exercise will be a bit of a challenge, but maybe I just have to suck it up and log my foods for a few weeks and pay closer attention to what I'm putting in my mouth. It just has to be done. It just HAS TO.

Feel free to leave me some pep talk in the comments!

I totally know how you feel! They are going take out ALL of my fluid, yikes! I really want to remain focused and not gain any weight. We can do this, right?! Of course we can! <3

You can do it!!!! Log your foods and show your band who's REALLY the boss. Keep blogging everyday too - that really helps me stay on track. And walking is GREAT exercise. Hang in there!! Hugs to you, Jen

Feel free to rant any time. We all do it and sometimes we need to just get it out. Maria, you CAN do this. You know it. I don't see you as a quitter. Yeah, it may suck, but you are better and stronger than the food or the cravings and think of how AWESOME you will feel when you see the losses. It'll just make getting that fill so much better, because then you can take a breather! LOL :)
