Too Tight

It has been a few weeks and I am sorry to once again slip from my promise to let you join me on my journey.   A lot happened while I was gone.   Well, not a lot so much as one very big thing.   I was too tight.   If you remember in my last post I commented that I was having issues with sinus drainage and not being able to eat.   For about 3 weeks I was hardly able to drink water, no solids or even liquid foods and every night I knew that I was going to wake up aspirating and puking.   It was torture and I will never let it go that long again now that I know what was going on.   I finally got accepted by a Doctor here locally.  (for other Mexico bandsters you know how hard that is) and he was great.   He had me do a GI scan and they noticed that nothing I was drinking was passing but was waiting until I threw up again.   They took some of my fill out and I have been fine since.   I have yet to PB and have been able to sleep (ah, that was much needed).  The acid reflux is gone too.   I have no idea how an 18 month old fill could all of a sudden be too tight but I am blaming gallbladder surgery.  It must have just moved everything enough to shift the liquid. 

As happy as I am to be able to hold down food I am now going to need to be careful.   I have gained 5 pounds in the 3 weeks since the unfill and I know it is because I am starting to snack and eat more all without working out.  So as usual, it is back to the basics for this fat girl.

1. water
2. Food log
3. workouts
4. blog honestly
5. Eat smart and small bites.

I have a follow up appointment next week and I don't know if I will have an adjustment or not.  I am still tight enough that I can't eat just whatever but I am loose enough that I am eating more than I should.  Or is it that I am being the fat girl that can all of a sudden eat and wigging out.  Let's see how the basics treat me.
