Weign In 4/11/11

Only time for a quick post today.  I'm working a half day and then it's off to Vegas for a couple days to see my sister and brother-in-law.  Wahoo!

Weigh In. 177.5.  That's -1.5 from last week.  Definitely good progress, especially for not working out.

Weekend was just OK.  Since a week ago last Friday, I've been having a lot of pain in my upper abdomen (like by the bra line) and anytime I drank or ate anything, I felt bloated and gassy and just if you could push a pin in me and I'd pop.  Finally, on Friday, I couldn't put it off any longer and called the doc.  They did an upper GI to make sure all is well with the band.  I'm happy to report that all is fine in that area.  They tested me for a certain kind of ulcer, no ulcer.  Antacids aren't working at all to stop the pain so I don't think it's acid reflux.  So now they think it may be my gall bladder.  I have to go in for an ultrasound to check it out when I get back from Vegas and we'll go from there.  If the ultrasound comes back showing stones, it's bye-bye gallbladder for me.  Another surgery.  *sigh* 

Speaking of another surgery, it looks like my hubby may be banded sometime later this month or in May!  He's really nervous but we're both really excited to finally get this darn thing put in him so he can finally make his fitness goals a reality.  They're submitting everything to insurance this week.  Please keep your fingers crossed for an approval for him. 

Otherwise, not much else going on in my neck of the woods.  Thanks so much for the positive feedback on the pics.  I can definitely see the difference in my face and legs.  The stomach area still needs help.  I also found it's impossible to take pictures without my little one wanting to be part of the fun.  LOL.

Without further ado, your Monday DEMotivator:

Eeek! gallstones huh? Well I really hope that's not your problem but if it is you can handle it. You are strong. I am going to have to go back and look at these pics you are referring to. I didn't see that post! I have some catching up to do.

Have fun in Vegas! woo hoo

Fingers firmly crossed for your husband! Hope that it turns out to be something really simple and not your gall bladder.
