Hi guys!!  Again sorry  I've not posted much, but been having some health issues.. Band is doing fine, but now I have something wrong with my thyroid..  I'm going in tomorrow for a scan.. My dr. say's I have hyperthyroidism, which you would think with that I would be downt to a size 2, but nope wt is coming off very very slow to none..  I've been going up and down with the scale,which I know is all water.. THe heat makes me gain wt, because I retain water. So, today I am 177 and tomorrrow I'm sure I will be 178..  See, thats what I get for whating my first goal to be down to 175. I want to be 175 before I leave to go to my daughter's. That was my first goal. My real goal is 140 to 145, would love to get to 135 but that would just be a bonus..

 I've decided to go in next month and get a small fill. I've been eating my 1/2 cup portions and have not cheated once, but I've have noticed that I seem to want more food after eating then before.. I've also noticed that I'm hungry more and that's something I don't want.. I 've taken away 1 protein shake a day ( dr. said I should ) but I've not been able to make those calories up. Which concerns me. I've been eating less then 500 calories a day since taking away the protein shake so I don't want to eat that little.. Now with that said. I don't count my crystral light caloris or added calories like butter spray's, o/o, etc so I add an additonal 100 per day for those. So really I'm  eating around 500 to 600 per day. My dr. said nothing under 600 calories per day, so I really need to make up about 160 to 180 cal.  I've ordered some protein bars on line, so I hope they are good. I'm meeting my protein goals, 70 to 76 g per day so that's good.
I looked on line for the lowest calorie protein bars I could find and those were simple bars. They are 160 per bar which should fill in that 160 I miss from my protein shake. THey of course don't have the 30 gr of protein like the shake but they do have 16 gr so that's still good.  I got the variety pk so I sure hope I find one I like.. My dr. said I need solid food instead of the liquid. Since liquid is empty calories for band ppl.. So I'm working in trying to do everything exactly the way she wants me too..

I feel totally great though.. Little concerned over the thyroid but find it more weird then anything else. I've have fine labs all the way up to March.. My March labs came back completely fine which was 6 weeks after my surgery, then had labs done in end of May (new dr. ) they should something up with my thyroid, had then repeated in June to double check and they still showed thyroid off.. I asked if it could be the wt loss. I've had a fast wt loss in an short time and wondered if it could have sent my thyroid off, of course she didn't know. So, I've decided to see my fill dr. and she if she has any answers, but in the mean time I will take all the tests needed to get down to the bottom of what's going on..

Have a great week!

Wt today 179.. My wt isn't moving as fast as I would like it but it's moving, so that's the main thing.. Funny, how I didn't work out yesterday and still lost a pound..  I work out 6 day's a week and my days off very depending on what I need to do for the week.. I used to have Saturday's off, but now with dr, appts, nail day, etc I usual have a day off during the week.

Not much else here. I told you all before, I live a very boring life..

Have a great weekend,

Hello Everyone!!

Beautiful but hot day today, so will be spending most of it inside...

Wt today is still 182, so no change their, but it will come..
I have noticed that I've been a little bit hungry then usual lately, but I have not gone off track once since getting the band and I sure won't now..
 I just saw my P. A and we both agreed no fill this time, so I don't go back until Sept now.. I hope I can go that long, if not I will have to call her. I just don't want to get a fill right now, because I am heading on vacation the end of July and don't want to be traveling with a new fill.. 
 I keep sticking to what my guildlines are and haven't gone off once, I'm real proud of that. It's hard sometimes, like yesterday.. My hubby and I went to the movies and he of course got a med popcorn (which you know med popcorn is really a large ) and soda, me; bottle water. I wanted a bite of popcorn but I didn't take it.. Those times I'm so proud of myself.. I'm so afraid of screwing up, or gaining wait I just won't go off track.. I can't!!

When I started this journey I sat down with my hubby and told him he was going to be on his own as far as food is concerned. I wasn't going to cook for him anymore ( unless he wanted to eat what I do ). I know that sounds bad, but I came to a decision that I for once was going to look after me for a change..I have looked after him and our daughter and it's now my turn.. He was great about it, he said " you do whatever you need to " so I am.. We go shopping for food together and he buys what he wants and I get what I need.. Of course he gets frozen pizza's, frozen foods, etc,by the way, my husband is approx 6 pounds over weight, makes me sick, lol! Anyway, he comes home from work, pops his stuff in the microwave and off he goes.. I of course have to smell all that stuff and that's hard. But I have noticed as the time goes by that sometimes the smell makes me feel sick.. I seem to be more sensitive to smells. Things I used to like, like garlic sometimes makes me sick.. The smell is just to strong now.. I eat pretty blend things, like protein and salads, or some kind of veggie so there's no season to it. Except for the tsp of salad dressing I have..
Do you find this?? that your more sensitive to certain smells??

Hi Everyone!!

Sorry, it's been awhile.. I had a real bad sinus infection and then I had dr. appts regarding some bloodwork I got back.. I seem to be having a problem with my Thyroid, who knew?? Not me!! I feel great.. I still have some more bloodwork, but my dr. said it's hyperthyroidism , not hypo, so again who knew?? I'm hoping it is from my sinus infection or something viral.. I had a terrible sore throat and glands were swollen for about 2 weeks, but when I went to dr, he said it was part of the sinus infection. I went to another dr. who took blood and it came back with funky TSH.. My dr. said it could be viral so going to get more work done on friday.

My wt is 182. Which has slowed down some. Part is the heat.. I always retain water bad during the summer so I think the wt will slow down some for awhile..  But, I'm still losing and that's all that matters..

I hope every has a great weekend..
