Beads and Boobies

Hello all! It was Mardi Gras weekend here in Pensacola, and while you don't really see boobies at our parades, there are lots of beads. I will post some pics later tonight.

Nothing much to report, but I didnt want you to think I have forgotten about you. We have been walking more. This weekend Tracey, my dad, and I went walking. We walked 1.5 miles! Wooo! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but it was pretty easy! I mean, I was out of breath sometimes, but I didnt hurt like I thought I would. It's also such a big boost for your emotional health. Anyways, I think we will move on up to 2 miles next walk (hopefully tomorrow night). Maybe we will stick with that for a few weeks, and I am going to start timing myself more closely...and then I think I will register for a 5k. Not to win it, but to complete it. I would like to do one no later than May, because it gets hotter than nuclear buffalo wings from Hooters down here in Pensacola, and I dont think I want my first race to be in 90 degree weather. Have mercy.

Stupid scale is still stuck. Although this morning after a particularly large bathroom expierence, I lost .5 pounds! haha...speaking of. Pooping has gotten tough these last few days. I have never had children, but sometimes when I am passing the "granny smith", I think to myself "if women can squeeze out babies, I can do this, I can do this *hee hee hoo, hee hee hoo*" I was thinking about a stool softner...but that's just asking for trouble.

My first fill is a week from Thursday. I think I do liquids for two days prior and two days after. Fun times.


  1. great job on the walking! I'm currently on week 3 of the 9 week couch-to-5k running/training program. It's fun and very rewarding. Don't get me wrong...I'm sure its also entertaining to see a 229lb woman running! I want to do a 5k by the summer, but I'm going to run all of it! something I haven't done since I was a teen.....

    Good luck with the fill as well. I had my first last week 4ccs and I feel great. restriction is here.... still not perfect, but working... droping weight like crazy... 4lbs in 4days following the fill!

  2. Should I assume that you've gotten over your bowel issues by now? LOL... I used to get backed up a lot on Atkins and softeners are not the way to go. This is a little gross, but when you're "bearing down" wrap some tissue paper around your hand and press down on your, um... taint. The external pressure helps to force things out the back door. That is, if you're just dealing with very hard but formed stools. If you're not forming any at all, that's a whole other story.
