venting for a fill

I had my 2nd fill toady. I have been feeling down all week. The weight loss has been stalled and moved a few pounds up… mostly from my emotional eating. I was just disappointed in myself and the surgery. I have been trying to be so positive, but my progress just seemed to have come to a halt.

I took it out on my surgeon’s office this morning. He was running late. I let the nurse and nutritionist know about my frustrations. By the time the surgeon came into the exam room, I was in a real bitchy mood. I shared my frustrations and more with him.

I got another 2cc fill bringing my total to 6cc in a 14cc band. And… I can tell. I ate a small amount of a reheated chicken casserole and left some on the plate. We did Mexican for dinner. I brought 2/3 of my meal home and was stuffed. So, it looks like I am moving in the right direction.

I learned a lot this week. I try to keep a positive attitude, but there are times when you just need to vent. I am so looking forward to Weight Watchers at Work when it begins the fall session on Monday. I need that type of support. I am resolved to go into the week with a good attitude and renewed dedication.

    Way to go, guy! Just keep on top of it, and remember how good it feels when it all goes well. I’m pulling for you.
