Tricked Ya!

 Sorry bloggers, but please forgive me, I lied to you all.
Thursday I said A didn't have birthday plans, but we had a "surprise" birthday dinner for her last night.
Unfortunately I am the worst liar on the planet, and A wasn't the least bit surprised.

E, Me, A, K, and OP 

We went to a nice little Italian restaurant - Brio.
This is the children's portion of Chicken Parmigana:
Let me tell you all again how much I LOVE using my WLS card to order from the children's menu.
That was supposed to be gluten free pasta, but I'm not convinced it was.  I had a few small bites of the pasta and wasn't feeling that great so I stuck to the chicken.  I ate two of those chicken tenders and was STUFFED!

I'm getting concerned about my level of restriction.  I have 6.3 CC in my band.  I just really want to feel the restriction that I did in the beginning, but I don't.

On Thursday, my PA Erica told me that after about a year some patients just stop feeling restriction.  That concerns me.  I want to get to goal so bad.  It's true that I still don't eat ANYWHERE near the potions I did pre surgery, but I'm legitimately scared that my band has "stopped working". 

Today will be run #4 in the last 8 days, so if the scale doesn't start moving in the downward direction soon, I don't know what I'll do.  I've never wanted anything more in my life than to get to my goal weight.  I can't stop now.


  1. Are most restaurants pretty cool about the card/children's menu? I avent tried it yet...I just take home in boxes...

  2. Yes! Only Once Did A Waitress Make Me Feel Uncomfortable, And That Ended In A $50 Gift Card From The Manager. Most Buffets Even Accept It!

  3. I am thinking that NOV 1 I am going to do my preopdiet for 2 weeks as a detox and jump start to losing weight. Email at if you might be interested in joining me!

  4. I need to remember to ask my surgeon about that card. Sounds helpful!! You're doing great girl, keep it up!
