Hello and Update

Hi everyone . Just wanted to give ya'll an update. I went to my doc appt last week and my band is fine. Its stayed in place and he even gave me a slight fill which I was not expecting. So as of today i am on mushies after nearly a month on liquids. things are going down fine, no issues. He actually gave me a larger fill than I have now and after waiting around the office i realized it was too much so i had him take some out.
So I am doing well. Another couple weeks I should need another fill. I have to get these 11 pounds off i gained in the nearly 3 weeks I had been totally unfilled.
Needless to say Dr R was not too happy about that weight gain !!!

Thanks for all the comments on my question on what i should do about school.
I actually applied today for a job at a WLS clinic I really hope i get it.
I am going tomorrow up to the community college to talk to them about my options.
Although i need something quickly for work/money . I am going to see what options i have for nutrition , maybe i can get a certificate of some kind , begin to work in the field and continue to go to school ? So I will see what they have to say , see what my options are.

My financial situation is not better yet. My optimistic husband keeps insisting its going to get better soon . So we will see. Still no internet which at this point it is what it is and i guess I am just use to it now .
So that's all. I miss everyone terribly !!!


  1. I'm so glad your band is ok Mindy!! Best of luck with going back to school. I miss reading your daily blogs and all of your great advice. Talk to you later.

  2. I am glad your band is OK too!! You sound so much more positive though and happier:) It is good to look at your options...hopefully you will get this job AND be able to study for something in nutrition!
