I have had a sort of crazy past 5 or so days. I have been super worried about one of our cats. She had a lump which the vet was very concerned about. We found out last Wednesday and the cat had surgery today. Fortunately, the vet though everything looked really good and said it looked to her to be a cyst. She said she really wasn't worried about it. They sent it off to pathology, which will make us 100% certain, but I feel so much better today. I was so afraid it was going to be bad news.
Our pets are like our children. We love them so much and couldn't imagine losing them. I know the time will come, but little Sophia is very young and active. The thought of her being sick was shocking and devastating. So... this all lead to some really bad eating. My weight was not my priority and I just didn't care.
I went in for a fill today and I was up a couple pounds. I always weigh a little heavier on his scale so I am not sure how real that gain is. I will weigh myself tomorrow morning and update my ticker accordingly.
I was so happy to see Dr. Katz. He is wonderful and always tells me how amazing I am doing on my weight loss. He asked me how much I can eat... which honestly, I don't really get full, so I told him. He said I need another cc. So, he gave me 1 cc, had me drink some water and all was well. He did tell me he would like to see me down another 10 by my next appointment 4 weeks from today. He knows my motivation has been waining and thought a challenge might help. I think I can do it.. especially if this fill gets me to where I think it will.
The funny thing is... I don't really know how much I have in my band. I was filled during a revision surgery and Dr. Katz doesn't remember how much he put in. He doesn't feel that the number is that important and he doesn't draw my fill out before adding more. He had given me a guess last time I saw him but I don't remember. I do believe I am over half full with my 10 cc band. I think he thought I was over five last time so I am thinking I am 6-6.5 cc. After my fill last month I was no longer able to eat rice or bread and had to chew much more carefully. I was starting to feel like I couldn't push the volume of food quite as much.
Anyway, today turned out to be a really good day. I feel good, and am ready to get a jump on the weight loss again. How are all you guys doing?
