MIA...Plateau...and Great Expectation.

I've been off the blog scene lately because my work schedule has been way too demanding! Hopefully in the next week or so it will ease up some. Work seems to get in the way of alot of personal things that I would like to do.

I really don't know what to think. Seems like I do really well for a week or so with my weight loss...and then nothing. I might go a week or two and not even lose a lb. Is this normal? I don't think I am making bad choices...and I am still so excited to be banded. SO WHAT'S THE PROB??? Wonder if I need anther fill?

I have read blogs of everybodys struggles and successes and have heard many people talk about losing weight in their feet. I am so excited about this. I wear size 12 shoes!!! I can't even buy shoes in the town where I live. I went to Montgomery and bought two pair of sandles yesterday. I know I'm thinking awfully BIG, but I'm shooting for a size 8 with my weight loss. What do y'all think?

My family and I are pretty close, with the exception of my brother. He is the odd ball. Every family has one I suppose. My dad has been working in Cambodia for the past couple of years and it is time for my mom to go visit him again. I am not looking forward to it. She will be gone for a month. Though I am 36 years old, grown, married, and have teenage children, I see my mom daily. We talk multiple times a day some days. I am really going to miss her. It's going to be a long month (in June.)

I guess I've rambled enough for this post. Thanks for hangin in there with me~

Is GAS the new normal?

There have been lots of "firsts" lately. First time getting really stuck, first mini pb episode, and first time to hit 241 since the band! (That is 28 lbs if you are keeping count with me!) Aren't firsts great? I am so glad to know that I have some restriction after my first fill, last week. I have found a few things that I will probably just try to avoid altogether.

Since I've had my band, I have gas all of the time. Is this normal? I think I should be buying stock in Gas X. There have been a couple of days at work that my stomach has literally grumbled all day from gas movement. Everybody thinks my stomach was growling. They think I am starving myself.....that is so not the case.

I have been so busy with work lately I feel that I have neglected my duties as a blogger. Work seems to get in the way of alot of things.

Give me yalls opinion. I work in an office of about thirty people. My office is on the back hall and is generally laid back but still professional. I have a coworker that is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying...loud, overbearing, talks too much, etc. We have just shifted our work loads and changed duties around. I gained ALOT of work. This coworker, on the other hand, has very little. Therefore, it gives her time to roam the hall and talk all day. I don't have time or motive to spend my day talking to her. Several of us have considered asking the supervisor to move her to a front office. It would fit more with her new work load and get her out of my office. Do you consider this underhanded or backstabbing. I do like a person, but she definitely sucks as a coworker!

Gotta go to work now!
