I'm still making my weight down this hill! Come one 230s, I can almost taste you!

Speaking of taste, I just discovered that beef jerky is an excellent snack. Low carb, low fat, high protein. It's perfect!! I've been looking for a good snack lately, and it just happened to fall in my lap! Actually, I found my boyfriend hiding it behind his recliner, but whatever. :D

So, this week was eventful.

I got my third fill on Monday. I was surprised at how harmless it was, since last time she was digging around in my stomach for like, thirty minutes. This time, she got it on the second time, and there was no pain. I told her I felt like I was in between the yellow and green zone, so she gave me a 0.7cc fill. She said she could have done more, but since I was sick, it was best to leave it on the low side so I don't get too tight.

Well, what has this new fill changed?


Not really, but there have been significant changes. For instance, I had my first PB this week. It was a horrible experience. My boyfriend and I went to a buffet, and I got some steamed mussels. I used to be able to eat them whole as long as I chewed them right (even after I got the band).

Nope, not this time.

I swallowed half of a mussel, and then all Hell broke loose. It was not a pleasant experience. It felt like a rock was stuck in my chest, and little by little, it would come back up. I had to rush to the bathroom and try to dislodge it. It took forever! All I can say is that is was no bueno, and I never want to do that again.

I also have a hard time eating bread now. That's a good thing, right? Wrong. I love bread, and I seriously have no problem eating bread here and there as my carb intake for the day. But now I have to really be careful when I eat it, because it gets stuck almost like the mussel did.

Well, I knew this was coming. I guess it kind of surprised me because I didn't have this issue before, but it's all for the greater good.

I met my new trainer, and he seems all right. I haven't had a session yet because I've been sick and can't freakin' breathe, but I will be seeing him on Monday. I need to get back into that grind!

My goal is to reach the 230s by next Friday. Short term goals are amazing for motivation!


  1. yay! glad to hear your 3rd fill was easy and that you're still going down in the weightloss. good luck with the new PT!

  2. Yay... glad the fill went well. Sorry about the PB experience.

  3. great job on the weight loss!!!!

  4. Sorry about the you think it might have been because it was too close to your fill? My surgeon has us do 2 days of protein shakes after (I usually only last a day) and then to mushies for 2 days...

    1. It might have been. All I know is that the next time I try them, I'm gonna be extra careful.
