Well I'm finally back. My life has been in fast mode for several days now. I'm ready for things to slow down. I hope everyone had a great New Year. I went to the doctor on Tuesday, 17th & received my first fill. It was ok. I was really dreading it. I was told that all I would feel was a prick from the needle. Just the thought of having a needle in my stomach was not good idea for me. It was ok. More of a stinging prick, probably because I moved. I am a big baby. I've been doing really well. Last night I had a bad headache, so I took Ibuprofen. Now, when I have a bad headache, I usually start out taking 4 Ibuprofen & go from there. I have miagraines, so I take alot of meds. So here I go, get the 4 pills, my glass of water, & I take all 4 at one time. Did I mention that I received my fill on Tuesday???? Guess I can no longer take 4 pills at one time now. At first it did not bother me. But by the time I walked to the restroom & started brushing my teeth, it hit. The pills were back up in my chest. They would not move. I did finish brusing my teeth. I kept thinking, please let me finish before I get sick. After rinising my mouth I had to lay down in the floor, thank God I have concrete floors. They were good and cold. I curled up in a fetal position. All I could do was lay there. I couldn't say anything or call for my husband. I don't know what he could have done. Stood there & watch me die. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. When I finally sat up, I burped. Ahhh, better. Then I started drinking sips of water & felt the stupid pills going down. Lesson learned, one pill at a time now, or liquid meds. Guess this is what I get for bragging, "oh I've done great, no problems." Yep, lesson learned. All in all I'm very glad that I had the lap band & would do it again in a heart beat.
Today was my first day of eating. I took measuring cups to work. Measured everything & did what I was told. I'm not hungry, & wasn't between meals. Very excited about that. I've been a BIG snacker in the past. Especially at night. Give me a bag of chips & I could eat the whole bag. It's really nice to not be hungry & to not want to snack. Kinda strange too. I think I'm going to enjoy this. I am having a hard time with the exercise bands though. Guess I'm going to have to watch the dvd that came with them. I hate doing that. I read the booklet. Still can't figure 2 of the exercises out. LOL. Silly me.
Have a good night everyone.
