7/26/10 Monday Musings

- As of an hour ago, we've now got a last minute trip scheduled to the shore before school starts. My SIL/DH just bought a place this summer at Cape May so we're going to meet them there not this, but next Thursday...guess I'll be breaking out the bikini again...yikes.

- I'm back to writing with a new vengeance today...I wrote all morning about maintenance and outlined a bunch of new things as well. I've learned that taking a break from writing can be a good thing and that I can't force feed it...I'm sure real authors can and have ways to keep themselves inspired, but my busy life this summer was making it impossible to carve out chunks of uninterrupted (read 'three teen/twenties' constantly interrupting me) time to get creative and it was getting stale and tedious...and that's just not me!

- I stopped by Barnes and Noble today to pick up a few Lap Band books to start reading at the shore...and was surprised to find they didn't have ANY (the only WLS book they even carry was 'WLS for Dummies' and after perusing it for a half-hour I realized it wasn't worth buying...nothing we all haven't heard as it's a very generalized book about all WLS). I've been putting off reading any LB books until I had at least the full outline/structure of the book all worked out so that I wouldn't be influenced or start questioning myself. It's probably for the best they didn't have any as my DH's family doesn't know about the blog or the book and they'd be wondering why I was reading these post-op. I'll just have to order some to read this Fall.

- I keep forgetting to share a few things, like I went shopping again right before I left for Ohio. Ten more tops and a sundress.

- Also, I'm not sure if I told you that I called and moved my 'refill' appointment up...a month. It's tomorrow afternoon. I've got lots of thoughts on the refill and what I'm aiming for this time (I've got some new thoughts on where I was/want to be), but I'll save the details for now. Here's hoping the Doc doesn't toss me out on my ear when he sees I'm in a month earlier than he said...I'll let you know.

- Oh and I've gone from a full 7 pounds up to reining it in to about 3-4 now...Doc will probably say I'm doing fine LOL.

Happy Monday all!

It's nice that you have such a good relationship with your doctor. I will be curious to see if he gives you a refill. 3-4 pounds is great -do you feel like you are watching what you eat?

I love that you buy what YOU love not what fits! What a good way to be. I need to get there...QUICK!!

I love Cape May. I hope your trip is wonderful!

Good luck at the refill...thanks for my comment too - love the ear thingy we share!

I love Cape May. Let me know if the Angel of the Sea B&B is still there! Have a wonderful time.

I've always been told to buy things only if I loved them, but I was right there with your mentality at my former weight of "if it fit and didn't make me look fatter," I bought it! Have fun on vacation :)

BG - I have the book "Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding: Achieving Permanent Weight Loss with Minimally Invasive Surgery" by Jessie H. Ahroni. If you'd like for me to send it to you, email me your address to bandlady (at) stealyourface (dot) com and I'll get it in the mail for you.

Wow-- didn't know you're writing a book. I certainly would be an interested consumer!
What about Laila Ali's 'FIghting Weight.' That is a celebrity recounting of weight loss with the band. Worth a read, but I'll tell you, there is not THAT much info in the book. Enough to make me glad I bought it, though. (I am sorry I can't share it-- I gave it to a friend who is considering lap band vs. GB.)
