I had my Upper GI yesterday. Went pretty well from what I could gather. I got to see a bit of the fluid go through my band, which was neat. The tech said it was functioning well from he could see, but ultimately, it would be up to the surgeon to make that decision. He did see some leftover food debris from when I ate cereal the night before, but not after midmight, it was around 10pm. Weird. But he said they could have my band tightened like that, but that seemed odd to me, we'll see. But he saw no obstructions, so that's good. Plus, I truly believe it's NOT my band, but I'm also not positive, I'm still quite nervous about it and was tearing up about it yesterday. I'm not ready to have anything happen, I'm not ready. I felt very compelled to just cry. I need to start making better food choices, protein first ALL the time, not drinking with meals, etc. I'm still losing, not necessarily every week, but losing nonetheless. I'm down to 197.8 as of last Sunday, hopefully a little more this Sunday.

Not much else going on, just planning for my bestie's bridal shower and still working on my own wedding as well. We have cake tasting next Saturday!! (aaaah! lol). Our candy buffet (favors) is under way. Working on getting some appointments set up for our mentoring (Catholic and I'm not), still working on my brooch bouquet, hoping to buy and send out save the date's in April, put our pic/info in the newspaper in April/May, hoping to meet up with the Legion's organizer in a month or so, give or take. A lot of stuff going on and picking up. :) Exciting, but nerve wracking as well.

I'm at work, so I'm going to hop off now. Ciao!

Weigh In Day

Weight last week:199
Weight Today:197.8
Weight loss this Week: - 1.2 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 73 lbs
Woo hoo! I gained a pound back last week. Ever since that .3 unfill, I've been ravenous! :( 
I had my EGD last Wednesday, all went well. He said he saw some bile reflux, but I was still pretty out of it. My fiance and I both are pretty sure he wanted an Upper GI done before I see him in 2 weeks, but I never got a script for it. I then called the office Thurs/Fri and they were texting him to see what he wanted done. So confused! 
Got a new car last Wednesday as well, seeing as my 1998 VW Beetle is done for. Here's a pic of me and my new lovely:

Weigh In Day

Weight last week:198
Weight Today:198
Weight loss this Week: - 0
Weight Loss Total: 71.8 lbs.
No big deal. I know what I gotta do. Last week = too many sweets and not enough exercise. 
I've been having some stomach issues for the past 3 weeks. On and off. Making sure it's not my band. Dr. Rosenberger (surgeon I saw this past Friday) doesn't seem to think so, but we're doing an EGD on March 13th to check. And then a check up on March 22nd. Also, he put me on Protonix for right now. I haven't had time to fill it yet, but I will drop it off tomorrow at the gym. He also took a .3 unfill out. I already feel a ton better, no pb'ing and no indigestion since.

On another note, my car had some issues this past Wednesday and it proceeded to be my transmission went out. Craziness. Basically, my car is only worth about $1,700 in great shape, the dealer wants $4,400 for it and this VW guy MAY have one for roughly $1,500. Yeah, no thanks. 

So, I am now borrowing my dad's car (1992 Ford Taurus), ugh! But it's much better than having to rely on others and messing up my gym schedule. So, I am now independent again. BUT this really puts a damper on things right now. I now have to find another car. My mom works for Maguire's Ford, so she has their top salesman looking for me. I found about 12 on their site, so she's checking tomorrow to see what type of pricing (her discount) she can get for me. *sigh* Really didn't want a car payment right now, but oh well, shit happens.

Still planning our wedding and still planning on our 2 week honeymoon to Italy. :) Staying positive one day at a time.
