is it just me?

Is it just me, or does it seem like somedays, everyone you run into is a complete and utter freaking MORON?

Seriously, it's like they woke up and feel out of the stupid tree--hitting every single branch on the way down. It's the kind of thing that makes me want to scream in aggravation. To wish that I COULD reach through a phone and lay down a head slap.

But I bite my tongue, and I smile when I explain something to someone for the 4,377 time, and I do not let them hear my sigh of exasperation, or the sound of my hand slapping into my forehead because what I am saying and what I want to say are so far apart on the niceness scale, that I would be fired for telling someone what I really felt.

That, coupled with my ability to somehow eat bread again--is frustrating me. I just want to find my green zone. I need to get this weight off. I want to see results.



  1. I feel your frustration. I am 1 year post-op and I just want to feel like I'm a "normal" size. Can you go back in for another adjustment? I have all these tips for what to do to make your band feel looser when you're too tight, unfortunately I don't know anything that works the other way. Except gaining weight, that will make me tighter. But that is definitely counter-intuitive!

    1. ha! gaining that made me smile. i have an appt scheduled for Noevember 13. My surgeon is sooo busy that they don't take walkins unless it's an emergency unfill--and he's scheduled out months in advance. I'll just keep on working on this on my own and see what happens when I go in next month. I need to make the decision to stop eating the bread--just becaus I can doesn't mean that I should! :)

  2. I tried to respond earlier, but your blog wouldn't let me...probably a good thing as its likely i was on of those that hit the stupid tree branches on the way down. ha ha ha. Its frustrating when you think you've finally hit "the zone" then you discover you didn't. Luckily, I'm still not stomaching anything that isn't near mush right now...I am hopefully optimistic. I hope your Nov 13th appt gets you in that good zone!
