Why Does My Gallbladder Hate Me?

It has been a rough week, let me tell you. I go fromnot being able to eat or drink at the beginning of the week to wanting to cut out some of my insides at the end of the week. I am going through a gallbladder attack and it truly sucks. I don't know when it is "serious" enough to have to see a doctor. I can function...it just sucks being in constant pain until it decides to calm down. So I am curious, how many of you have experienced similar issues following surgery?

Here I Sit, Waiting to Be Fixed.

Yup, at the surgeon's office because I can't keep water down today. Little bit of a red flag. The heartburn has been wicked!! However, pleasant surprise to see 195 on the scale at the doctor's office....which is notoriously higher than normal scales AND fully clothed!! Silver lining to an otherwise uncomfortable day. Stay tuned :-)

So Irritated

I am so irritated...literally and figuratively. My band is being a real bitch. I don't know if it is stress or if it is traveling every weekend, but man oh man am I TIGHT!!! I like restriction, but not to the point that I am PBing every single day. Sure, it is great for osing weight (no, not really...starving yourself is not the way to go), but I want to eat!!! I have discovered of all things, Chick-Fil-A chicken and shakes go down just fine. Very moist chicken and apparently I savor it enough that I am chewing it to nothing. Shakes go down just fine no matter what. LOL. Oh, and TGI Friday's cheddar bacon potato skin chips...those go down too. Lettuce? Eggs? Nope. So healthy in my eating right? Today I am doing liquids, so soup and water it is. I am contemplating going in to see my doctor to get a slight unfill. I was at my sweet spot and doing great until this started a few weeks ago. Flying every weekend and the stress that goes along with being separated from my family is getting the best of me, I guess. It will be beautiful when this year of travel is over. On a happier note, the weight loss is still going. I got the lovely little surprise of 189 on the scale last week. And in other exciting news, my SIL got engaged and will be married in Nov!! So excited for her and having a lot of fun helping in her wedding planning. I bought my dress already and was beyond stoked when I was forced to get a size medium!! I kind of love Vera Wang for the fact I fit into a size medium in her clothing. I have been wearing size medium tops and dresses in other brands, but Vera had been holding out on me. Now to work my arms for the next few months to make them sleeveless friendly.
