Busy Monday, as usual

I had today off, and I filled it with doctor appointments. Whee! First up was my annual at the gyno, next was my band doc for a fill (yay!), and finally a follow-up with the urologist (all is well there too).

I weighed in at 210.7 this morning. It's so nice to have it inching ever downwards even without exercising. That does need to be a focus for me soon. I'm just really struggling to fit it in -- even on the weekends.

So, does anyone else have to fill out a "Green Zone" survey when you go for your fills? This was a first for me. After I signed in, I was given a questionnaire about what foods I'm eating the most, how big my portions are, hunger level... all the things my doc normally asks me about. I thought it was interesting, and just wondered if anyone else has to do that. I also have to add -- I love that I don't have to beg for a fill. This time, I got a whole 0.25ccs, which is kind of big, considering I have a 4cc band. I really wasn't expecting that much, but I'm happy to have it. This just means I'll have to be extra careful till I figure out what I can tolerate again. And definitely no paczki for me tomorrow!

Quick elimination diet update: Still going strong. Even though wheat is not an issue, I've still kept it to a minimum. Still avoiding dairy, though I'll try adding it in again later this week. Still feeling pretty good!

I've had to fill out one of those surveys before, but only once!

I've never been given a survey, or even asked about my eating habits! yay for big fills!

I have to fill out a questionnaire every time I go to the doc. Glad the Elimination Diet is still going well.

So glad to hear that the scale is headed downward. I've never had to fill out a survey on a fill/unfill. Interesting. I have to say, i'm really interested in this elimination diet you are doing to find out what issues you have with certain foods. I never would have thought that certain foods could impact a person so much, but I guess that's why tests like these are needed. :)
