Weigh-in Day & Aunt Flo Alert

Goal weight: 145 lbs

Last week's weight: 142.0 lbs

Today's weight: 140.8 lbs

Still under my goal weight!

I've mentioned before that when my Aunt Flo shows up for her not-so-monthly visit, my level of band restriction goes way up.

Well, that b*tch showed up today.

Since my band was feeling pretty snug already due to my 0.7 ccs "Big Girl Fill" about a month ago, I hope that I don't end up on liquids. That's no fun. We will see.


  1. I am just beginning the 6-month process leading up to lab band surgery. I'm really excited to have found your blog. 3 others in my office are also in the lab band track. You inspire us.

    1. Thanks Linda! I'll go check out your blog :-)

  2. I hate aunt flo....makes my band tight and I can't figure out what I can eat and can't eat!!

  3. Ughhhhh! Just had to deal with this too. Actually had to get a slight unfill yesterday because for some reason this month was worse than normal. With added stress, travel and tom my band was acting up this month. Feeling so much better today! Good luck!

  4. Aunt Flo does the opposite to me. I feel wide open and want to EAT ALL OF THE THINGS. And sometimes I try.

  5. Way to maintain! I said goodbye to Aunt Flo for good 2 years ago! So glad thats over. I really disliked her visits.

  6. Aunt flo does the opposite to me! Its like an absolute free for all and I can eat anything that I crave (which is NOT a good thing!)

    Congrats on the maintenance! You are an inspiration.

  7. I totally get this. Had a fill at the beginning of the month and this was my 3rd fill. And now I totally understand the whole meaning of aunt flo and tightness. Onto liquids for the next few days. Ugh!
