Fill tomorrow...

Its been a while since I have posted (I know only about a week, but a lot of you post more frequently so to me its been a while). Anyways I have an appointment with my surgeon tomorrow for another fill. I need it!

My work outs have been going great. I was sick with a bad cold last week so I only exercised 2 times last week....I guess better than none right? Well this week I am back on track and so far so good. I am weighing 226.8lbs right now which is a low, I just wish it was lower. I have been able to do about 2 miles on the treadmil each morning which is an awesome feeling! I remember when I was barely able to do a mile.

My dad, Syd, has been getting into the exercise mode as well. But he likes walking outdoors which is awesome, however the cold winter isn't allowing too much of that. Today we have a bit of a warmer day so we will be going later in the afternoon for about a mile and a half walk. We have 4 dogs so usually we take 2 with us. But it will be a good change for my body. I can walk on the treadmil in the morning and then do another walk in the afternoon. When I first moved here (about 5 months ago) when I was at one of my heaviest points I used to go with my parents to do this walk. Its at a park nearby and its a little hilly...I remember how out of breath I was and how much pain I would have in my ankle and foot and sometimes my hip. But since I have lost a couple of pounds and winter set in and I started exercising regularly, I told my dad that I would join him on his walk this afternoon. It was funny he said im going to go about a mile and a half or 2 miles and I said dad I do about 2 miles every morning on the treadmil. Haha it was funny he had no idea and said ok then lets do it!

It feels so good to be able to go out and do things and not get so tired and down about everything! I am excited to go to my surgeons office tomorrow. Hopefully I will get another good fill. Linda the Physician Assistant who I normally see is wonderful! She is really so supportive of every patient that walks in the door and she truely cares about how your feeling as a patient. I will keep you all posted about how much if a fill I will get tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great week and as always, lets shed those extra pounds together!!



  1. Hi Michelle,

    We are almost band twins. I got mine on Oct. 4, 2010. Sounds like you are doing all the right things via exercise and keeping up with your fills. I love my PA too. She is really good and we call her the Port Whisperer.

  2. Mishkie! Enjoy your walk with dad later! Changing up the exercise routine can be fun and your body won't get so used to the same thing all the time. I'm glad dad is getting into something different than work these days! Love ya!

    Oh so I just have to ask. I know I'm your crazy sister with a blog full of recipes, but do you have any favorite healthy recipes you like to make now that you are more focused on your health these days? I'm getting into blogging about healthier recipes and I'd love your thoughts!

  3. Yes, enjoy your walk outside with your Dad and good luck with the fill!

  4. I am a new follower, also banded in October! Good luck!
