Got My Gurgle Back!

Well, here's the news. I had a fill yesterday. Weight at doc's office was 211. But my scale reads 208. I am going the wrong way. I am hoping this fill and a renewed effort will help me move in the right direction. It's been one hell of a summer and fall. I am hoping that things in my personal/work life settle down soon. I am going to try to keep a food diary again for about 2 weeks, as my PA suggested at my fill appointment. It will help to track both total calories and my portion sizes a little better. I am already feeling a good amount of restriction again, so I am hoping that I can live the lapband life better again.I know I have good restriction when I gurgle after a meal. Awesome!


  1. Good for you, Cheryl!! Way to get back on the gurgling wagon!! :)

  2. Hey you! Just checking in on you! Miss you here!...and I hope you've been beating down that stupid milestone of 'Onederland' and that it's not still biting back...I swear that I got to each of these huge milestones only to self sabotage myself along the way (SO much of this is a headband thing!). Anyway, miss ya! -BG

  3. Hi, Cheryl. I'm glad you've got the restriction back and I wish you the best on this journey.

    I wanted to ask if you'd post about a study I'm doing. While it's hard losing weight on your own, it's not necessarily easier with a spouse or partner. Sometimes partners/spouses undermine weight loss through acts like complaining about healthier food, gifting high-caloric foods, or even through abusive language/acts. I'm creating an anonymous, online survey to assess for partner undermining and to learn more from those who experience it.

    To be eligible to take the survey, participants need to have experienced this in their current relationship (of at least the past 2 years), and have been participating in a weight loss program for the past 5 consecutive weeks. For more info, see http://tinyurl.com/Clark-Study
