Support group

I attended my second Lap Band support group last night.  It was a small crowd and only one person from last time I was there.  There were five of us who had or will have surgery with Dr. M and 2 who had gastric bypass at another hospital.  I like the groups and talking to people who are going through what I am.  I also feel more at ease with those who don’t make me feel like a total freak of nature and the fattest person in the world.  Last night’s topic was dining out and emotional eating.  One of the GB patients that came brought her husband who went on and on about how he eats straight sugar when he’s stressed but “I’ve never had a weight problem.”  How fucking irritating.  Do people just not think about the group they are in and how their words might make people feel? 

Anyway…I’m down 59 as of today.  At the last group, I remember saying that I was down 43 lbs.  So that’s a 16 lb loss in almost a month.  We started doing Walk Away the Pounds this week.  Yes, we… I got Eric to do it with me.  He has been losing weight lately too.  He wants to lose about 20 lbs, I think he should lose more like 10-15 lbs.  I really want to get a bike.  I used to love biking, I think I’d enjoy it now if my knee holds out.

Next Tuesday is mine and Eric’s tenth wedding anniversary.  Wednesday is my 3 month bandiversary.  I’ll take more pictures on Tuesday or Wednesday and post them.  I’ll also do new measurements then.  I see Dr. S on June 5th and he is really doing to flip when he sees me.  I can’t wait.  He saw my sister last month and she updated him, but at that point I was only down like 35 lbs.  I love seeing reactions from those who haven’t seen me in awhile.  I’m still waiting for some of my customers to comment, but so far only one has and I’d told her I was getting the band.
