10/25/10 A new week, a new start

Ahhhhhhh...

I'm so relieved to have last week behind me. It was very stressful for a number of reasons. The lecture my coworker and I gave this past weekend went well. I do wish I had been a little better prepared, but it was very well received and I got some nice compliments, so I'll take it. There was a giant lesson there for me in learning to say 'no'.

Yesterday we got together with some family and took the kids to a local park where they have trick or treating set up for little ones. It's really nice -- you follow the trail around the park where local businesses and churches and politcal types hand out candy and goodies. You end up at the pavilion where they have donuts and cider set out. My tater tot and my niece loved it! It was nice to spend the afternoon with my in-laws, my dad, and my sister and her crew. My mom even came over for a little while for chicken soup. It was a good day.

Today I had my fill appointment, thank GOD. I'm doing liquids today and probably most of tomorrow. I was going to do the 5 day pouch test, but I'm not sure if I want to drag it out all week. I'll see how my hunger is doing tomorrow. If I have any semblance of restriction, then the carbs will naturally fall by the wayside. In any case, I'm planning on avoiding bread, rice, etc. No need to test the band.

Hope the fill does the trick for you and you can say goodbye to the bread and rice - not something I can manage when I'm in the green zone.

Hoping your fill is a winner - so you can be a loser. :)

Glad things are lightening up for you on the work front. Hope this fill helps you out.
