I definitely feel better...I am doing full liquids for a few days. She also prescribed Prevacid twice a day (before breakfast and then again before dinner) for 10 days. I don't think I have heartburn, however I will do as I'm told...maybe heartburn feels different when banded?
I was weighed/scanned at my unfill appointment. Turns out I have lost a total of 12 lbs since my last appt about 6 weeks ago (All the pounds lost were FAT, and I actually gained .5 of a pound of MUSCLE) Go ZUMBA!
I also went for my blood draw early this morning at 7am for my "6 month post-op labs." We will see how those turn out...
That's all folks...Zumba tonight! :)

That's a 4 pound loss this week. Probably due to the extra exercise I did and being on mostly full liquids.

I just enjoyed about a half a cup of delicious tomato basil creamy soup from the airport sandwich deli place...I am trying to not think about the sodium and cream content of what I just ate...no nutrition facts available
I'm looking forward to a nice sleeping in morning tomorrow!

Two topics for today:
1> I am traveling for a work conference for the next few days and I'm already thinking/planning how I will make wise food choices. Do you have any tips for me on sucessful eating while traveling? What about excercising?
2> With tax time here, I just wanted to remind any American self-pay bandsters (like me) out there: The US government recognizes weightloss surgery as a medical expense. So be sure to take that deduction!
PS: NSV, I found some awesome work slacks/pants in size 14 that fit!! And on the Clearance rack! YAY!
PSS: Lap Band Support Group tonight :)

Here's my "Nowadays" list:

- I can meet old friends without being embarrassed by my weight.
- I feel more healthy and am no longer winded when I get up and move.
- I don't mind climbing the stairs at work
- I don't feel like I am dieting just because I am eating less
- I'm looking forward to summer
- I can sit with my legs crossed
- Sleep quality at night is better than ever...and no more naps during the day.
- I walk towards the scale, not away from it.
- I enjoy shopping for clothes, I don't dread it.
- I walk past the candy dish at work.
- I stay hydrated with actual WATER.
- I park in the furthest parking space instead of driving around 5 times looking for the closest spot.

I'm currently floating in the middle of the Pacific ocean on the beautiful Sapphire Princess cruise ship. I've had a great week of cruising to Mexico and back. Tomorrow we get off in LA and then it's back to reality! No more room steward to clean up after me and no more 24 hour buffet (kinda a good thing actually).
On the band-news department....I have successfully had a week of lots of challenging food choices. While I did enjoy myself and had a few "no-no's", I didn't PB, slime, or any of those scary/painful things (yet) that you guys sometimes blog about. Chew, chew, chew! I knew I was eating proper sized portions when the waiter would ask "didn't you like your food? I can bring you something else?"
I can't wait to post photos from the cruise on here.... lots of formal night pics too!
I will catch up on all of your blogs this weekend, I promise.
PS: major non-scale victory: I went horseback riding on the beach in Cabo. The weight limit was 240lbs. Pre-band I would have been too heavy. yay!
