Christmas NSV

So I got two beautiful shirts for Christmas that I can wear on my cruise next month... however both were way too big on me! So I took them back today and exhchanged them for a smaller size!! WOO HOOO! I am offically a 14/16 in shirts now and will never wear an 18/20!!

I think its also weird that my feet shrunk... I went from a 9 to an 8.5.

Thursday, December 22, 2011


Everytime there is a birthday at work... there is a cake... and I mean one cake per person... so that is twenty cakes a year. I am proud to say that since surgery... I have not had a peice of cake. It was very tempting today since it was my favorite cake, Red Velvet and I said no....



So I got an unfill today... She normally would only take out a .5 cc but since I have had a week of throwing up, she decided to take a whole cc out. So I am now at 4cc filled. I am hoping this works much better then the 3 but not as bad as the 5cc.

I think its funny how there scale is always different though, according to my scale this morning I was down 1.5 since last Friday... and normally the loss matches up to there scale, but according to there scale I was down 4 lbs since last Thursday... Weird. Oh well hopefully I will see the 4 on my scale in the morning!

Back to liquids I go... man its been a rough week :(

Happy Thursday!

Unfill tomorrow

So tomorrow I am going for an unfill...since I havent been able to eat any solid foods with out getting sick since my last fill. I am curious to see how much they take out.

Looks like Christmas dinner will be consisiting of mashed potatoes. :(

Sisterhood to the rescue!

Stephanie is a total life saver... She had two beautiful dresses for me for New Years that looked really great on me and a bunch of other clothes!! YAY! I also went to the mall with my mom and bought two new tops for my cruise that's coming up and a cute strapless dress... So needless to say if I don't wear the dress for New Years then I have a cute dress to wear on the cruise.

THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am still tight... Had soup for dinner and it didn't like me. So calling the doctor again in the morning and hopefully an unfill will be in my near future.

Monday, December 19, 2011

Too tight and still annoyed.

So I got my second fill on Thurs... The nurse was really agressive and gave me 2cc for a total of 5cc in my band... things were going perfectly until Sunday morning. I had two scrabbled eggs and a peice of turkey bacon. I did not realize I should have still been on mushies and should not have eaten the bacon. I proceeded to then puke up breakfast... had a shake for lunch and then puked up dinner too... Oh what fun...I called this morning and asked for an unfill since I could not eat anything. But she told me she wanted me to take liquid benadryl tonight before bed, and tomorrow before bed and if I was still having problems then she would do an unfill. Luckily I have not had an eposide since this morning... but I really hope I am able to eat more than soup or a protein shake tomorrow... god this sucks. I went from no restriction to way too much in the matter of 4 weeks. Whats even worse is that the scale is not moving, because I am not getting enough calories in and for some reason when that happens my body fights with me... Oh well. Wish me luck.

So my birthday is New Years Eve... and my friends are taking me out to a fancy place for dinner... (If i can eat by then) and then we are going to see a friends band play. Nothing I own fits me... so I have been looking for something dressy to wear since this past weekened. Tonight I went to Avenue, TJ Max, Marshalls, Kohls, Dots, Lane Bryant and Macys and I could not find one damn thing to wear. I did find one top that looked ok, but it was 90 dollars and I am not spending that much money for one damn shirt. So I am a little frustrated at the moment.... I have never ever had a problem finding something to wear. Now that I am loosing weight I can not find a freaking thing to wear you have to be kidding me. The dress I tried on that needs the next size they are out of, and I can not order it online anymore... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I found another dress online but I am scared to order it as it might not fit me cause in some things I am an 18 and others a 20. So at this point I have decided I am going topless on New Years... Go me. OK I am done with my pitty party.

On another note if anyone has a cute dressy top or a dress that is an 18/20 I will love your forever and you will save me from my misery.

I am annoyed

So two years ago I lost 100 lbs and put every one of those pesky pounds back on... When I lost the weight I got rid of my fat clothes thinking I would never go back.

Needless to say everything I own now is either too big or too small... I really need to go shopping.

I am going out tonight and wanted to look cute... but that doesnt seem to be happening :(

Second fill!

So I had my second fill today... and it was a success, well so far! My doctor said recently he was planning to be more aggresive and he wasnt kidding. I got another 2 cc today for a total of 5cc in my 10cc band. My next fill is scheduled for a week before my cruise in January... that should be interesting.

2 Month Bandiversary!

So today is my two month bandiversary, although its been two months I feel like I am just beginning my journey now as I am just starting to work out again.I really enjoyed working out with Stephanie last weekend and I am looking forward to running/walking much more with her. I am really excited to see what the next month has in store for me. So far I have lost 25 lbs and 14.5 total body inches. Which 5 of which were from my waist!! Woo hoo!

Tomorrow is my second fill, I am actually looking forward to it this time :)

Well hope everyone is having a great day!

PS thank you to my Secret Santa Ronnie, I really loved the gifts!

What a week...

I am happy to say that finals are over... and life can return to normal somewhat. LOL

I have had a week from hell. It was totally bitter sweet getting straight A's for the first time in years this week, because on the same day my grandmother passed away. I wasn't very close with her but it was still hard to hear that my last living gradparent is now gone.

Saturday Stephanie and I met up in Delray and walked/ran a 5K. It was really fun working out with her since we pushed each other. When I thought I couldnt go any further, it turned out I could. However my legs are sore as hell today and I have blisters all over my feet. I think my christmas list is going to be revised and running shoes are going to be added.

I cant blog from work anymore, but I am totally going to try and catch up on everyones blog. I hope you guys had a good weekend :)

OoooO i almost forgot... I had an NSV this weekend as well. My favorite jeans, Size 20, which might I add were starting to fall off of me, but I loved them anway ripped. I was so sad. However, I now fit into a size 18! Woo hooo and they dont give me a huge muffin top anymore :)

The fill that never happened...

So November 16th I got my first fill. 2 CC for a total of 3. At first I was super restricted… I had to be really careful to chew everything etc. All of the sudden I am loosey goosey. I feel even less restricted now then I was after surgery. Last night I was eating a steak my roommate cooked for dinner… and I was like wait a minute, I just ate a steak with no problem whatsoever. I also find myself hungry all the time. What happened? I want my restriction back. I don’t have another fill for two weeks. I guess its time to learn if I can actually avoid temptation. So far so good.

I had my first final last night… I think I aced it! Woo hoo! One down two to go!

So one more thing. I have been cleared to work out finally! But I am kind of scared that I am going to hurt my port... did anyone feel this way? What kind of exercise did you start out with? Did you start slowly or jump right in?

Monday, November 28, 2011

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!!!

What a whirlwind weekend! I happy to say that I managed not to gain any weight, however, not so happy that I didn’t loose any weight… but its all good.

Thursday my boyfriend came into town with his family! Was so excited to see him as its been 8 months since I have seen him last… Long Distance relationships suck by the way. We drove to Miami and had dinner with his family all 42 of them. LOL At least it wasn’t that awkward as I met them all last year when we were just friends, so they were happy to see me. Friday however, was the big day where my mother got to meet him. I was so nervous as my mother is a tough and rough New Yorker and tells it like it is. The last time I brought someone home, she didn’t like them, and made sure they knew it. We went to lunch and luckily, she liked him as much as I do… Thank god for small miracles. Then Friday night we went out to see my favorite local band and he got to meet all of my friends. Once again they loved him… so it was a nice stress free fun night. I did however drink a little too much.

Saturday we had breakfast and it was off to Gainesville. The Gators lost… and that was depressing but at least I got to see my friend Liz before she left for the Navy. Sunday was an emotional day as it was time for me to head home and leave my wonderful boyfriend with his family. To make matters worse I hit major traffic. A 4 hour drive took 6.5 and I watched in my rear view mirror as a man on a motorcycle was hit by a huge pick up truck.

I am glad to be home and back on track. I have my first final tomorrow and I haven’t studied for it… and two more next week. It is going to be a long week.

How was your Thanksgiving? What kid of fun did you get in to?

Week from Hell...

Sorry I have been missing from Blog land... but I am having a week from hell :(

Friday was work drama, Saturday I found out my aunt had a heart attack and was in the hospital. Luckily, she is ok and has been released from the hospital.

Yesterday I found out my only living grandparent had a massive heart attack and a bowl obstruction. They fixed the bowl obstruction and she is refusing treatment for the heart attack and refusing to eat... which makes me think she is ready to pass on. My uncle said I could try and call her but she is in and out of lucidness so do not be offended if she doesn't know who I am.

My mom also went to the doctor today and got an upper GI or something like that and it turns out she has a herniated esophagus... she is most likely going to need surgery.

Finals start next week... and I am stressed out to the max, so blogging isn't on my to do list at the moment...

Friday, November 18, 2011


It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another installment of BYOC! That’s Bring Your Own Crazy!! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog if you so desire – and ENJOY!

I’m going to do a Thanksgiving themed BYOC this week (it was Jenny’s idea)!

1. What is your FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving?

Being with Family and friends

2. How many Thanksgiving family events will you attend?

Only one this year... My boyfriend will be in town to see his family. So they do a giant get together with about 30 people. It was amazing last year... so I am hoping that this year will be just as nice!

3. What’s your biggest Thanksgiving tradition?

I dont really have one anymore. My mom used to have this big dinners, but now that its just her and I... we really only do big things on Christmas.

4. Do you Black Friday shop the day after Thanksgiving?

I did once and it was the worst experience ever. So I try and stay away from anywhere shopping on black Friday.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog world.

Blog world is great. Reading blogs and trying to comment as much as possible.

Real world is good and bad... Work is stressing me the hell out, in fact yesterday another co worker made me feel so bad that I actually cried... that doesnt happen often. Other than that life is good!

Skinny Santa Weigh in, First Fill and Writing Prompt

Start Weight: 275
Previous Weight: 256
Current Weight 254
Loss of 2 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!

Last night I got my first fill!! I was given 2CC yesterday for a total of 3CC. It was way easier then I thought it was going to be, especially since I absolutely hate needles. The funny thing is... I thought my port was higher up then it was. Cause in my upper abdomen it looks like something is sticking out, but they put the band aid by where my scar is... weird. Do you guys know where your port is? Or am I the only crazy person that thought it was somewhere else?

Now onto the writing prompt:

What has been the happiest moment of you life so far? It would have to be when I graduated the first time around. In May of 2007 I graduated with a BA degree double majored in Real Estate and Management and a separate degree in Chemistry. My family was super proud of me... as I was the first one in my family to graduate with a 4 year degree. I paid for college completely on my own, so I felt that I had finally achieved something that I worked so hard for.

Happy Friday!!

10 Things Thursday...and prompt...

  1. I am supposed to get my first fill today... fingers crossed that it happens
  2. I have support group tonight and I am really looking forward to it
  3. I should be able to start working out very very soon, I am super excited about it!
  4. This weekend is my day of beauty before the boyfriend comes to town. I am really looking forward to having my hair done and getting a mani and pedi!
  5. Finals are coming up and I am freaking out... so much to do, so little time!
  6. I am grateful school is almost over... I need a break!
  7. My boyfriend is meeting my mom for the first time next week... this should be interesting. 
  8. My mom has been super supportive... she even offered to help me with the down payment of my first house. I think she has been invaded by pod people... but I like the results.
  9. Work has been super brutal lately... I almost wanted to cry this morning.
  10. Christmas is coming up and I am drawing a blank for presents... I hate giving gift cards though.
Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is, "Make a list of everyone you've ever had a crush on in your entire life, then choose one from the list and describe him or her in great detail."

  1. Cliff
  2. Phil
  3. Rob
  4. Brian
  5. Sam
Hrmmm lets talk about Sam. Sam is a mans man... a total alpha male. We met in College in 2006. What I love about Sam, is he is a no nonsense kind of guy... he tells it like it is, and I am the same way. He is also a complete gentleman, he opens car doors, and regular doors, compliments you and pays for things. He also has the most beautiful hazel eyes I have ever seen. He is a total charmer... he could charm the venom out of a snake. We tested the waters, but a long term relationship would never work out between us as we are too much alike. However, I am thankful that him and I have remained close friends!

Happy Humpday!

Writing prompt:
What is the moment you leave childhood and enter adulthood?

For me it was when I moved out on my own... One week after high school graduation, at the young age of 17 I moved to Orlando to go to college. It only lasted 3 whole short months before I moved my happy ass back to South Florida. But my parents treated me differently because I was out on my own paying my own bills. When I moved back they actually started charging me rent and treating me like an equal. 9 Months later, I moved out again this time to Gainesville! Go Gators, where I actually made it work this time and I was up that way for 4 years, before I moved back to South Florida.

In other news:

Well the weight from this weekend is finally coming off! My boyfriend will be here in 1 week, I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am supposed to get my first fill tomorrow, I am hoping they give it to me. I have a pot luck on Friday at work, looks like if I get the fill I will be watching everyone else eat. Normally I would be totally bummed out about that but I honestly don't mind. Yesterday was a test for me. We had cake at work for the owners birthday, and I did not have a piece. Man it looked good, but the brownie looking cake thing looked like I would choke on it if I even tried a piece. I opted to eat my lunch instead. Yay for will power.

Finals are coming up and I am completely stressed out... but for some reason I do better under pressure. So we shall see how that goes. I hope everyone is having a great day!

Tuesday Aggrevation and writing prompt...

Describe a favorite place. Focus on how that place affects your sense of taste, touch, sight, sound, or smell

There is this Japanese gardens in Delray Beach, FL it is called the Morakami. My dad used to take me there when I was a little girl and we would have picnics by the lake.

I love this place, it is so serene, to walk around the gardens, or go to the museum and look at art work. They constantly have things going on there like a sushi stroll, or drum circle. I actually want to get married there one day.

I wish I could go there right now.

So today was the day to register for classes, registration began at 12:01 AM. With limited classes available for Spring semester, i decided I need to wait up and make sure I get the classes I need to graduate. The server went down... I was up till 1 AM trying to register, It wouldn't work. I went to bed and set my alarm for 4 AM. I woke up registered and went back to sleep. Then I get to work this morning and there was an email from my boss telling me that I could not use flex time to take the last class that I need. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR so much for graduating next semester. I am one cranky girl this morning.

One Month Bandiversary...

It just dawned on me that today is my One Month Bandiversary!!

I have officially lost 19 lbs and 7.5 inches off of my body!!! WOO HOOO!

I learned that the band is only as good as the effort you put into it. Which I am totally working on, I manage to be perfect for 5 days and crappy for two, but I can not do that if I want to achieve long term success.

I have learned that Rice is no longer my friend... but I am OK with that.

I am excited about being cleared to work out again! Only one more week to go! I love the way I feel when I work out, one more week and its show time!

I have also learned that I have an amazing network of girls and guys! That help me keep focused, so Thank you!

Meet me on Monday

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!


1. Does your family/friends know about your blog?
2. What is your favorite card game?
3. What do you wear to bed?
4. What is your favorite kind of French Fry?
5. What is your usual bed time?

My Answers:

1.      Does your family/friends know about your blog?
My friends and family know about it, only one friend who is considering WLS actually reads it.

2.     What is your favorite card game?
I love playing cards. Blackjack and Poker are my favorite!

3.     What do you wear to bed?

Anyway from nothing to a cute PJ outfit

4.     What is your favorite kind of French Fry?McDonalds fries are my favorite. However I do not eat them anymore.

5.     What is your usual bed time?
      Midnight is my bedtime... I really need to get to bed sooner.

It's Muuuunday!

Prompt for the day... Have you faced fears and overcome them?

Yes I have... but not very many of them. The fear that I did overcome was my fear of heights... I overcame that by zip lining through Costa Rica, and jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. (will never do that again)

I have a fear of spiders, but that is because I am deathly allergic to them.

I also have a fear of dying alone... Like never being married etc. I am sure that will change one day but for now its still a fear.

So here is my weekend recap, I think my band heard me celebrate that I was down 20lbs...for after that post I was able to eat whatever I wanted to, and I did... The scale showed up 2.5 lbs this morning... Bad Jessica... Time to be perfect the rest of the week. My goal for next weekend is to be accountable cause this yo yo crap is what got me into this mess in the first place.

I also finished my paper in a record time of 4 hours... God that scares me, since I did the research at the same time. God I really hope the paper doesn't suck!!

I have a busy month ahead of me... Lots of deadlines at work, my boyfriend will be here in 9 days, Thanksgiving and finals... I can not wait until December, when I can finally just sit back relax and enjoy myself.

I took my roommates boyfriend to the airport this morning...Getting up at 5 am makes me a tired cranky girl today :(

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Lazy Sunday!!

Even my cat Nala is being lazy... This is what I want to do today. I am totally kicking myself in the booty for waiting to write my paper at the last minute. Shame on me. With company in town I was really bad with my food choices. I have been good today, but I just need to kick it in to high gear and stop eating whatever I want all weekend. I really hope that my doctor gives me a fill on Thursday like he is supposed to. Alright time to stop slacking and start writing a paper on Bankruptcy fruad.. the highlight of my day.

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Happy Saturday!!

It is a beautiful day in South Florida... I am kind of bummed out that I waited to the last minute to write a research paper. I would much rather be outside playing in the Sun.

So I have an NSV last night... I went out with my roomate and her boyfriend to the Outback and where I would normally eat a whole loaf of bread, a half of bloomin onion and an entire meal. I had one peice of bread, and half of a Pork Tenderloin meal...and one glass of wine. And I actually acocunted for the calories!


Also I peeked on the scale this morning and I finally hit 20 lbs lost!!

Friday, November 11, 2011

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TGIF! Thank god it is finally Friday. I have had a week from hell and really glad its over!

On a plus note I had my highest weekly weight loss so far this week. Except of course the week I was on liquids. So I am really excited that I lost weight this week, when normally when things get rough I turn to food. My roommate’s boyfriend is in town, he also happens to be one of my best male friends, so this weekend should be exciting. Unfourtnately I also have a research paper to write so I am hoping I can knock that out in less than a day.

Now on to today’s prompt:

Its 11/11/11 make three wishes.

  1. I hope that my boss agrees to let me take a day class, so I can graduate next semester and not have to worry about it.
  2. I hope to pass the CPA test the first time around. I worked hard for this, and I am ready to start the next chapter.
  3. I hope that my boyfriend will move here by March… We are talking about it but its not 100% yet.

Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Also happy Veterans day to all the men and woman that served our country!

Thursday Ramblings!

I liked Read’s prompts better than the one I was going to write about today! So here we go!

Which quality best describes your life--exciting, organized, dull--and why?  All of the above…My life is exciting, when I have friends and family in town or when I decide to treat myself to a night out on the town. Its Organized because that is how I have to be, especially when it comes to work and school. Just don’t look at my car… It looks like I live in there. Dull because sometimes all I do is work and go to school, but I know that its going to get me to where I need and want to be.

Why is it important to be honest?   My motto has always been the truth hurts, but it’s the truth. I would rather you tell me the truth then be lied to any day of the week.
What is something you do well?   I do accounting well.

What would happen if there were no television? Why would this be good? bad?  Well I love TV, but it would be nice to have no television for a little while. There are a ton of books that I want to read.
What do you think the world needs now?  Peace and Love!

Tuesday...NaBloPoMo Writing Prompt

So the prompt for the day for NaBloPoMo... Has anything traumatic ever happened to you?

Yes it has on several occasions...

1. I went flying head first into the corner of a television when I was about 8 years old. Thanks to my wonderful cousin tripping me. I ended up with 300 + stitches and a nasty scar on my forehead.

2. In 2005, my father and I were fighting... The last thing I said to him was Go F**K yourself... I then left the house and went to blockbuster to return a movie and go to the bank... While waiting for traffic to clear to turn into the bank I had this strange feeling come over me, I decided to go home instead. When I returned home, there were 3 cop cars, a firetruck, and an ambulance, covering the span of 3 houses. I tried to walk in my front door, where the cops proceeded to tell me to use the garage door. When I walked into the house I saw the paddles being used to resuscitate my father. I learned that while I was at blockbuster, he had a heart attack while swimming and unfortunately he passed away that night. The moral of the story, never walk away when you are mad. You need to work it out, for you never know if nasty words will be the last thing you say to someone.

On a happier note I received two pairs of shorts from Robyn last night.. I absolutely loved them and they fit great.

2. Do you hit the snooze button or get right up?
3. Do you still have your tonsils?
4. What was the last piece of candy that you ate?
5. Do you shop at thrift stores?

My Answers:
1. No I am not looking forward to the holidays, this year I will be doing last minute shopping and I dread the mall during that time.
2. I hit the snooze button at least 3 times before I actually roll out of bed. I really need to start going to bed earlier, maybe then I wont be such a witch in the morning.
3. I sure do!
4. I had a Kit Kat snack size candy on Thursday I believe.
5. I have tried to but I never find anything cute in my size... I have found a lot of nice books though.

Weekend Recap...

So Friday night I went out with an old friend... We went out to dinner and then went to Downtown Lake Worth for some drinks... What I don't understand is I used to have a crush on said friend.. When I am single the boy is never interested. When I am not single he is always interested. I am really over the head games that he plays with me.

Yesterday I went to the Circus with my roommate and her son... it was a lot of fun! I have not been since I was a child. Even though it was super cheesy, it was really nice to see him all excited about it. I can not wait until I am a mother one day!

Tonight I went to the Florida Panther Hockey game. It was a lot of fun... I have not gone in a while. The first period we were up 3-0 and I thought we had the game on lock down, but in triple OT the Lightening won 4-3.

I ate like total crap all weekend... I am not very happy with myself, but time to hit the reset button and start the week off right.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

My First PB

22 days since surgery and I PB'd, I was hoping this would never happen to me, but it did. Turkey Burger and I are no longer friends. That was pretty gross.

Went to the circus today with my nephew. It was super cheesy but it was nice to see him have a good time!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Let’s get to what we came here for! BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy. A couple questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy and paste to your own blog if you wish! Enjoy!

Let’s do another themed BYOC…..this one will be called
“What’s In/On Your….?”
1. What’s on your desk between your monitor and keyboard? (if it’s a laptop – what’s on your desk in general)

Post it Notes, and a 32 oz water bottle, 10key calculator. That’s bout it… My desk is pretty clean at work.
2. What’s on your mind right at this moment?

It is a co worker’s last day at work and we are supposed to go to a Cuban restaurant for lunch. I am a tad freaked out cause I am not on a full diet yet, and I don’t want to eat rice in public in case I get stuck… LOL and I don’t like beans. But I am kind of fond of my perfectly portioned out meal that I brought to work with me… ACK! Anxiety over lunch… Who am I?
3. What’s in or on your nightstand on your side of the bed?

Just the remote and a bottle of water.
4. What’s on YOUR Christmas wish list (let’s assume you’d get what was on it)?

Since I already got one of my major Christmas/bday gifts already (The Surgery) I am not expecting much nor do I really want anything… so I have not thought about this. Will get back to you on this one.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life has been up and down. School has me totally frustrated as you already know. However, I did manage to get another 100 on my second auditing test!! Woo hooo!

Blog life has been great, I have been reading every post and commenting as much as I can. I love that I have found some knew people!

Life in general is just good!


So if you haven't heard, its National Blog Post Month... The challenge is to blog every day of the month.

Thanks to Ronnie and Read, I have decided to do some research and I found a cool site that gives you prompts. I actually like the questions so I am going to answer them! I encourage you to do the same!! (Thanks Ronnie)

Since I am a little late to the party, I am going to answer all of the questions!

  1. What is your favorite part about writing? I just like to get out whats on my mind... I am not the best writer, but it makes me feel better if something is bothering me.
  2. If you knew that whatever you ate would be your last meal what would you want it to be? I love Asian food, so I am guessing it would have to be some sort of Chinese or Thai food.
  3. Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear to day? I listen to music all day, especially when I am at work, which involves math and writing. Today I have heard everything from trapt to flyleaf!
  4. When you are writing do you prefer to use a pen or computer? I have always preferred to use a computer. That is how i write letters, blogs, poetry... its much easier to erase that way.

Weigh in Friday!!

Start Weight 275.
Current Weight 258.5
Loss for Week -1.5
Total Loss 16.5

Yay the scale finally moved in the right direction!

Happy Friday!!!

10 things Thursday!

  1. I am not feeling well, but I am out of sick time so I have to tough it out at work… BAH HUMBUG!
  2. I emailed the school of accounting trying to get another section offered next semester, I had other people email them as well. I really hope this works. I am going to graduate next semester if it kills me, even if I have to take a class at another damn school.
  3. Saturday I start a full diet, I am so excited. I have a million and one recipes that I am dying to try. I also hope that since I will be eating more consistently the scale will finally start to move!
  4. My x boyfriend is going to be in FL for two months during January and February and wants to see me…. I haven’t decided if this is a bad idea or not. I have not seen him since we broke up.
  5. I am supposed to get my first fill in two weeks I really hope they give me one.
  6. My mom is the best, but she drives me insane. She had the lap band 4 years ago, and is constantly telling me what to do. She thinks 1200 calories is too high and I should eat way less… meanwhile the scale didn’t move an inch when I was eating less than that. Why wont she understand that our journeys are not the same, nor will they ever.
  7. My boyfriend will be here in three weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can not wait to see him, I still don’t understand why I got involved in yet another long distance relationship… thank god he is moving back to fla in a few months.
  8. I have a research paper to write and I am not looking forward to it. I would rather get a root canal. Anyone want to write it for me? Its on Bankruptcy fraud… Oh what fun!
  9. I can not wait to work out again! For now I am just going to walk.
  10. Hope everyone has a happy Thursday! Thank god tomorrow is Friday!

Holy Restriction Batman...

Wow so I was eating breakfast this morning, the same thing I eat almost every day and I almost choked. Funny what a little TOM can do to you. Crap, even getting water isn't that easy. I don't like this feeling... I am hoping that it goes away... ASAP!

New Blogger Alert

Check out Cheri Lap Band Fluxion she will be baned in December!!

Please give her a warm BOOBS welcome!

Not a happy camper

So I am all excited because I have three classes left and I was going to graduate in May of next year! Then I was going to take a month off and start my CPA review class.. I had this all mapped out and by February of 2013 I was going to be a licensed CPA.

So the spring schedule came out since its time to register for classes in two weeks and low and behold 2 of the 3 classes I need are being offered at the same time. WTF?! I have two options… 1 take a day class and miss a half a day of work, my boss didn’t like that too much as it also happens to be our busiest season, or wait to take the class in the summer. So I looked at last years summer schedule, and the class was only offered on a Tuesday last year which happens to be the same time as my CPA review class…. Nothing is going right since FAU made massive budget cuts.

My hardest class is only offered online now, and the other one is a web lecture. I don’t like either one of those. BLAH this sucks!

On a happier note, the scale is finally moving in the right direction. I think its odd that the scale showed a low number after a day where I have eaten the most calories since surgery… go figure!

Did this happen to anyone else?

OK So I am 17 days post op and my TOM was due last week... and its still not here. I think I am holding on to water weight which is why I didnt loose any weight last week. I know for a fact that I am not preggers because I had a blood test done the day before surgery and well nothing has happened since then.

So I was wondering did surgery cause anyone else to be late?

BYOC a little late!

It’s Friday and time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! A couple of questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

This week my questions are going to themed…as in they are all about blogging and just to throw you off – there are more than 5 this time!!

1. When did you begin blogging? Do you plan to do it a long time or do you think you’ll stop after a while?

I started blogging in June 2010 and yes I hope to do it for a long time.
2.  What do you enjoy more - blogging yourself or reading other’s blogs?

I am not much of a writer so I prefer to ready others blogs.
3.  What’s the biggest thing blogging has taught you? Biggest surprise about blogging?

I was surprised how many people there were out there like me and how truly supportive they can be.
4.  Have you met any other bloggers in real life – solely because of your blog or theirs?

So far I have only met Stephanie, but I do plan on going to Chicago next year
5.  Does your blog have a general theme as in one topic or do you cover everything and anything?

Ten Things Thursday!

  1. I had a false alarm yesterday. I woke up with my port site all red and swollen, I went to the doc and luckily nothing is wrong. Thank god.
  2. The scale is still moving in the wrong direction :( I think it is because TOM is due. Well I hope that's it at least.
  3. Today is my first support group meeting. I am kinda looking forward to it and kind of nervous at the same time. I am sometimes shy at first.
  4. Looks like my roommate and I might be parting ways in May of next year. I am kinda said about it. She is my best friend but needs to move further north and I work south :( time to start looking for a new roommate.
  5. I have three classes left to graduate with my accounting degree. Two of them are only offered at the same time so I can either pray my boss will let me take a day class or it looks like graduation is now pushed back to August.
  6. I am not in the best moods today.
  7. I am debating if I should go out this weekend, or just stay home. I love dressing up, but I am still not feeling 100 percent.
  8. I am actually looking forward to hanging out with my mom Friday.
  9. I am really looking forward to going to solid food on Saturday!
  10. Is it Friday yet?

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Calories...What's your magic number?

For all of you trackers out there, I was wondering what your magic number was while you were trying to loose weight?

Also were your calories the same when you were first starting out?

For instance during liquids I was consuming about 650 calories a day, now during mushies I am averaging about 1000. I think I should be around 1200 but I noticed the scale is going in the wrong direction. It is probably just because of the transition from Liquid to mushies.... but just curious to see what everyone Else's magic number is.

Monday, October 24, 2011

Back to work...

Why is it that when you go back to work after being off for 10 days you have no motivation to work?

It is so hard to get back into the grove of things right now... I have so much to do, yet all I want to do is go home and lay in bed. LOL

I sure hope I make it through this day.

YAY for Mushies and Pumpkin Carving!

So Saturday was the first day that I could eat food!!!!!!!

I really wanted eggs for breakfast but I woke up late and had to rush out the door, so I instead had a protein shake! I did however eat egg salad for lunch, and boy it was yummy! For dinner, well that wasn't very healthy as I was getting ready to make some soup for dinner, I noticed my roommate made stuffing for dinner and well... that sounded better. The calories however, were not better but I ate it anyway. Good thing is, I am telling you all about my wonderful mishap with the stuffing, and I also tracked it in my food journal.

Today I made a slow roasted chicken for my roommate for dinner, which worked out quite nicely actually since I took the remaining chicken and made chicken salad for me for dinner. It was really good actually. I decided to use low calorie ranch dressing instead of mayo and I am surprised how good it turned out. I don't know whats wrong with me though. Last week I wasn't hungry at all and I had to force myself to drink my shakes, now on the other hand I feel like I want to eat everything in site. I hope this feeling passes. Still trying to figure out if I am really hungry or if it is just head hunger.

Also today I carved pumpkins with my roommate and her son. It was a lot of fun. I have never done anything like that before, I am not a crafty person. It came out really cool. Here are the pics!

Dont I look Thrilled!

Roomies Pumpkin, Her Sons Pumpkin (He got bored so she did it) and My ghostly creation!

Mushies... what did you eat?

So I start mushies on Saturday!!!!!!! Yay! Can not wait to have something other than a protein shake. Anyway, I am trying to make my grocery list... I am the queen of lists and I was wondering what a day was like for you in mushyville?

Ten things Thursday

  1. I have a huge test tomorrow and I have not studied for it
  2. I should be studying instead of blogging. It is so hard to get motivated while at home... Oopsie
  3. I am so grateful that I stumbled across this amazing support network... I love you all!
  4. Gas pain is by far the worst pain I have ever felt in my life... does it ever go away?
  5. I am really looking forward to Boobs even though its so far away LOL. I have loved every minute of getting to know Stephanie that I cant wait to meet everyone else!
  6. I love how some things fall apart so better things can fall into place!
  7. I just found out a coworker put in his notice :( It will be sad to see him go but the new opportunity is going to be amazing!
  8. It has been nice to just relax this past week, but I am going stir crazy.
  9. I spend entirely too much time on Face book.
  10. I have turned into a major scale whore since surgery... I should really limit myself to once a week... twice at max instead of everyday LOL.

Tried and failed...

So I was feeling much better today and I decided that since I have a test next week that I was going to go to school... HAHAH bad idea. So the weather was disgusting and I got stuck in traffic. It took me an hour and a half to get to school. By the time I got to school I was already sore from sitting up. I tried to stick it out, but I only lasted 45 minutes before it was time to go home :( Oh well, I think i bite off more than I could chew for the day. Lesson learned. DONT PUSH IT!

Had my follow up appointment today with the doctor, he said I was looking good and according to their scale I have lost 8+ lbs since surgery on Friday! I can not wait to see my official weigh in on my scale on Friday!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Home Sweet Home!!!!!!!!!!

I am finally home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love my mother to death... but she was driving me bonkers! It is so good to be home! I missed my kitty, my roomie, and my bed!

My cook books came in the mail today! That was exciting, I am going to look through them tomorrow and see if there is anything that I like. I am such a picky eater, my plan is to try new things and see if I like them in my adult hood. I really need to add new and healthy stuff to my diet. That is once I can actually eat food again.

I have a huge test that I missed on Monday so I will be spending the rest of my vacation studying and recovering.

I hope everyone is having a good week :)

Monday, October 17, 2011

Its Monday!

Its Monday and I am feeling good!!  It was nice to have a few visitors to help keep my sanity! My mom means well but she is driving me nuts. I think I am going to stay one more night and then head home tomorrow.

I took a sneak peak at the scale this morning and I was down 5 lbs from surgery! I cant wait to see my official weight on Friday!

My follow up appointment is Wednesday so I am looking forward to that. I just wish this damn burping would go away.

Well time to study for a test... Hope everyone is having a good day!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

Day 3 and pics

Hey guys... I am doing better every day. I actually had a full nights sleep last night!! WOO HOOO! I am still sore but that is expected. I am hoping to feel good enough to go home on Tuesday. I am staying at my moms house at the moment, and she will start to drive me crazy soon LOL.

I have some of my best friends coming over today so that should be fun!

Here are some pics from the last few days. You have my offical before pics( the morning before surgery) Pic of my mother and I, A pic of me chilling in the hospital waiting for surgery, my lovely scars, me and Stephanie hanging out, and matching bandits :)

Day 2 and a visit from Stephanie!

Well I made it to day 2!

Last night was a bit rough, I was in a lot of pain and I could not get comfy if my life depended on it. I was up every hour on the hour. I would pace the house, go to the bathroom and then go back to sleep for an hour. I think the longest time I slept was from  5am to 7 am.

Today I am feeling much better. I have nicknamed myself the burping bandit... as that is all that i do. walk and burp and walk and burp.

Stephanie came over to say hello, It was really nice of her. We had a nice talk and went for a walk around the neighborhood. Man did that feel good. She also brought me a goodie bag! The best present thus far was the creamy chicken soup. It was sooooo yummy and made me feel like I actually ate real food. We also took some cute pics. I will post them tomorrow when I am feeling better.

I am still on pain meds every 5 hours or so. My port site incision is a tad red and swollen and my left shoulder blade kinda hurts. I am not sure if its gas pain or pain from being stuck sleeping in the same position since its the only way I can get comfortable. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

Other than that I am good. I was able to drink 3 protein shakes today and some soup and a bunch of water.

More tomorrow...

BYOC! Better late than never

It’s Friday which also means it’s BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy – day around these parts.
Five little questions you can copy and paste and answer in your own blog to get to know your fellow bloggers better and to give your blog brain a break!

1. What’s your most favorite noise and your least favorite noise?
I love sitting on the beach listening to the waves.
Nails on a chalk board or slurping from a spoon

2. If you were a character in the movie Grease – who would you be?

Sandi of course!

3. What was the name of your best friend in elementary school? Are you still friends?
My best friend from elementary school actually had the same name as me... LOL we lived across the street from each other. Only difference was she was chinese. We are still friends to this day. Although she lives in NY and I do not see her often, we do talk all the time.

4. Who is your current celebrity crush?

Ryan Gosling... Have you seen his abs... YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

5. Repeat question: How was your week in real life and in blog land?

Real life.....Amazing! As you know I finally got banded. So I am just hanging out at my moms house trying to recover. Stephanie is stopping by today and I am totally looking forward to that. Tomorrow I am going to start studying for the test that I am going to miss on Monday. So hopefully I will be ready to take it by wednesday. Life is good.

Blog land... I had an amazing makeover, and a few new followers. So blog land is good too! Just trying to catch up on posts from yesterday!

Friday, October 14, 2011

I am offically banded!!

So surgery was a complete success! I got to the hospital at 7:30 in the morning, Surgery was scheduled for 9:30 but my doc was about an hour late. It turned out last night was his birthday! So at 10:30 it was surgery time. I was in recover by about 12:30 and I was released to go home at 4:00. I am staying at my moms house. For the most part I feel good. However I haven't been able to sleep for more than an hour at a time due to the gas pain. My back/shoulder is also killing me due to laying on my back. The gas is finally starting to move so I am starting to feel better.

I want to thank everyone for all the well wishes! I really appreciate it. I will keep you updated and I will post pics as soon as can, but for now I am going to try and actually sleep this time! Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Blog Fairy came to visit!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and will check in tomorrow!

10 things Thursday

  1. Wonders why doctors and hospitals always take so long. I had an appointment at 8:30 for my final blood work and I wasn’t even seen till 10 AM. God that pisses me off… Why not schedule me for 9:30 or something.
  2. Doesn’t understand why if you tell a nurse you are a hard stick, and you can not draw blood from that area, that they don’t listen. I am a walking band aid this morning. In order to give blood this morning I was stuck 3 times
  3. I am officially all checked in for surgery! I can’t believe the time is almost here. In less than 24 hours I will be in surgery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. I am not looking forward to staying at my mom’s house for the next few days. While I love her dearly, she drives me insane. She also thinks she always knows best… when that is not the case.
  5. I am really looking forward to a visit from Stephanie this weekend! Will be good to see a familiar face while I am recovering.
  6. I have no motivation to work today, as I have a one track mind regarding surgery. I have made a billion check lists… I have so much to do so little time.
  7. I love to cook… but I need recipes in order to do so… That’s how I roll, I can not just wing it. So I went a little overboard on Amazon yesterday. I think there are 4 cook books coming my way, and a book to read while I am bored.
  8. I just found out that I got a 95% on my paper. Which means I have straight A’s in all three of my classes. It has been a while since I have pulled that off!
  9. I need to try new things. I am so boring when it comes to food. Although the liquid diet was not as hard as I thought it would be, I am really tired of chocolate protein shakes. In fact I think I might kill someone if I have to drink another one.
  10. I am really looking forward to my blog make over! I can not wait to see it!

Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life! Thank you for giving me advice and support, I truly appreciate it!

Ok back to work I go, there is so much to do so little time

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

2 more sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the hospital finally called me!! I have to be there at 7:30 AM on Friday! I also found out that the nurse was mistaken and I am not staying overnight after all.  I will be released the same day as surgery.

My mom is going to take me and pick me up on Friday and take care of me until my roommate gets home. Going to spend the weekend with my roommate and then my mom wants me to come stay with her until I feel better. So that should be fun. I haven't really had the chance to hang out with my mom since she works on the weekends and I have weekends off. So I am looking forward to seeing her!

I am starting to get so excited I can not believe the day is finally here!

Monday, October 10, 2011

4 days to go!!!!!!!!!

So just got the call that I am all set for Friday October 14th for surgery... then it hit me... HOLY CRAP, my life changes in 4 days!!!

All the appointments and pre-op tests have been fulfilled, surgery has been paid for, medication for surgery has been filed.

I am so excited I am jumping out of my skin!

Just waiting for the hospital to call and give me a surgery time. Since I did not know I was staying overnight, I also have to figure out who is picking me up on Saturday. So this should be interesting.

Liquid diet isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, I took a peak at the scale this morning and I was done 6 lbs so far. So we shall see what the official weigh on Friday shows.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday :)

Friday, October 7, 2011

Weirdest feeling...

So I started my liquid diet today as you most likely already know since I have been bitching about it non stop.

I am sooo full from the protein shakes and water, I actually feel like I am going to puke. But yet at the same time I am starving. It is probally more head hunger than anything else... but it is the weirdest feeling in the world.
1. If you were given $1,000,000 that you had to spend ONLY ON would you spend the money?

I would pay off my debt first. Student loans suck!
Buy a house.
Decorate new house.
Buy the car I have always wanted.
Then shop till I drop!

2. Who would you say is the one person that's had the most influence on your life? By that, I mean the person that has molded you in to the person you are today?
That is actually really hard to answer... There are so many people and things that Molded me into who I am today.

My parents are a big part of that. As they let me think for myself, and always supported me in what ever I do.

3. What is your normal morning routine? Are you a bear in the morning, or is the morning your favorite part of the day?

I am totally not a morning person. I sleep until the very last minute... take a quick shower and race to work. My co workers tease me because I do not wear make up to work.  Yet when I go out I am all made up.
4. If you're a Facebook and Twitter user, which do you prefer and why? If you're just a Facebook user, what do you think of the new changes?

No Twitter for me. 

I am on Facebook 24/7 and I absolutely hate the changes.

5.  Repeat was your week in real life and in blog land this week?
Real life has been busy. I had my education class on Tuesday and I had my meeting with the nutritionist last night. All of my pre op appointments are now complete. I have one week until surgery. I can not believe how fast time flies. I had a test on Tuesday and I managed to get 100 on it! I am really kicking butt in school and that is making me happy!

Blogland is been great. I loved seeing all the pictures from Chicago and I have been reading and commenting more! 
Happy Friday!!!!!

Weigh in

So I weighed in this morning at 274 thats a total loss for the week of 1.0 lbs.

  5. I am totally kicking butt this semester in school. So far I have had two tests and managed to get a 100 on both tests.
  6. I am missing a test because of my surgery... Although I can make it up, I am a bit freaked out since I have never missed a test before.
  7. I am trying to plan a trip for spring break... I am thinking Costa Rica! Since I will be able to do more things this time around, but I kind of want to go somewhere new.
  8. I love the townhouse I live in... I really want to buy it. However, right now its not worth as much as the owner paid for it. :(
  9. I love love love going to concerts... I am super excited 311 is coming to town. But I can not imagine spending $62.50 for General Admission Tickets. Concerts are becoming highway robbery.
  10. I am not looking forward to Saturday's Gator game against LSU. We did not do so good last weekend against Alabama. I think I might have lost hope for this season.
Hope everyone is having a terrific day :)

I love my job sometimes...

So I am an auditor for a CPA firm... I started in January of 2011. While my job is really boring... yawn... the people I work for and with are amazing.

Every year our company takes us on a cruise, all expenses paid (except alki) that is... and we are allowed to invite a guest!

I lucked out last time since I was just starting with the company I was supposed to start the day after everyone got back from their cruise. Well a co worker got sick and had to cancel so they asked me to go in his place.

I didn't think we were going to go again next year since our firm doubled in size. But our boss just announced that we will be taking our annual cruise in January 2012! HELL YEAH! That just totally made my day!
Not sure where we are going but I really don't care. I love cruising!
