Fill 'er up! (and other random stuff)

I saw my surgeon on Thursday afternoon.  I haven't been in for a fill since mid-October and it was nice being able to talk with my doctor about my progress (and current lack-there-of). 

He was thrilled with my 70lb. loss and was so complimenting and encouraging.  I could tell he was a *bit* hesitant to give me a fill at first, but after a short discussion about why I felt like it was time, he totally agreed and gave me .4cc.  I now have around 6.5cc in my 10cc band. 

My restriction is definitely back and I've lost three pounds in the last few days, putting me back down to my lowest-low of 222 lbs.  I'm hoping to be in onederland by my one-year bandiversary on June 9th.

SPEAKING OF JUNE 9th.... not only is that my one-year bandiversary but it is also my 30th birthday!  I've been thinking for months about what I want to do for my birthday and I just wasn't coming up with anything that just felt "right".  I want to have a big celebration of not only entering my third decade on this earth, but also the amazing transformation I will have undergone in the last year of my 20s.  I wasn't feeling the whole "nice restaurant dinner with an intimate group of friends" and I wasn't keen on the "rent out a bar and dance the night away to bad techno music" either.  And then, on the way home from the grocery store tonight it hit me... 

I'm going to have a big party at my house (or maybe my parents because they have a lot more open space) and invite all my fun-loving friends.  Its going to be a big, loud, fun GAME NIGHT PARTY!!!  I love to play games with my friends and we're always talking about how life is just too crazy with work and kids and life in general to get together for game night very often. 

So, my big 30th b-day bash/bandiversary is going to be the game night to end all game nights!!  Guesstures, Trivial Pursuit, Pictionary, Charades, Taboo, MadGab, EVERYTHING!  I want there to be at least 20 or 30 people there and its going to be one fun, loud, and amazing night!!

WAHOO!!  Have a good week ya'll!



  1. I think a game night sounds like lots of fun for your 30th birthday! My husband is turning 30 this year and I have been trying to come up with a really good idea to celebrate but it's not easy.

    Congrats on the weight loss in the last few days!

  2. Sounds like a blast!

    You're doing so well!

  3. That sounds like an amazing idea for a birthday party! I might have to steal it! :)

    Great job on your fantastic loss so far! I'm glad your doc decided to go ahead and do the fill. Sounds like just the edge you needed to get things moving in the right direction!

  4. You are doing great! I nominated you for an award - check it out on my blog.
