This weekend was a weird-ee. I felt a little off and out of sorts and I didnt read any blogs. I apologize. I didn't want anyone to think I was ignoring. I did think of you all though. Does that count? So if you would like to punish me by skipping this post, I completely understand.
Okay. So some of you wanted to know if I lost the "boat weight". Last Monday I weighed in at 196.5. Yesterday, for Swimsuit Challenge purposes I weighed in at 186.5. Today....MY weigh in day...I weighed in at 184.5.
Slap. Yo. Mama.
Two things were happening mmmmmmkkkkkaaaay (Drazil said I could use that as long as she could say shitballs).
First. The 6 pounds I gained from the boat must have been water, salt, and other bs....as we suspected. Second, my band was really acting up this weekend. Friday night I ate about half of a soft taco. It had gone down just fine the night before. Well, it got stuck and it took about 3 hours to unstick. By the time I finally got it out, I was exhausted and my band was irritated. The problem was, I hadn't eaten much that day at all as is. I had some soup for lunch and that was it. I haven't had much of an appetite these last several days. So I really wanted that soft taco to go down bc I needed it!
The next morning I made a smoothie with protein powder. I drank maybe 1/4 of a cup and it came back up. For over an hour. By the time we went to Walmart that morning I had a pounding headache and felt weak.
I did manage to get soup down and some popcorn...and some fried pickles. But overall, not a lot of food this weekend.
All that aside. I can't believe that I am now closer to the 170's than the 190's. I am 14.5 pounds away from goal. I tried on lots of size 14 pants and skirts this weekend that all fit. I am wearing a tailored jacket today, size large.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Monday and gets what they are longing for! Whatever that is :)

Congrats on the loss!!! Yeah!!! Though I hope you are feeling better!ReplyDelete
I have a weird question for you, since I am not yet banded... can you tell if you are having band issues or if you are actually sick with something?
YEA on the loss! Your hair looks AMAZING btw!!!ReplyDelete
Well, please do slap yo mama!!!!! That is great news on the weight loss....fantastic on the size 14's! I hope you are feeling better today.ReplyDelete
look at you go! you're like the bunny... you just keep going and going and going and....ReplyDelete
YAY for the WL (and I so hate that post PB soreness!). Your hair looks great, but OMG...you look SO SKINNY! I'm so proud of how well you're rockin' your band Amy! That goal is almost here GF!!! Rock on!ReplyDelete
OK, I howled at the slap yo mama thing. And the TEN (12) pounds! Congratulations, although it sounds like losing it was fairly miserable. I hope things calm down and you're able to get back eating real food again soon.ReplyDelete
Hi! My name is Amy and I found your blog via other blogs from LBT. I'm getting banded on May 19th. I read your ENTIRE blog this weekend like it was a novel, hanging on every word. Forget Twilight and Edward I'm all Team Amy now! When I got to the end and glanced at your ticker all I could say was "holy crap...she lost Tracey" seriously, you've lost (or almost) the entire weight of your boyfriend. How fricken cool is that. Thanks for sharing your journey and being such an inspiration to us newbies about to embark. I have hope...Thank you!ReplyDelete
I was gonna slap my momma but she may slap me back so anywhooo CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! on the WL!!!!!ReplyDelete
On the sick part and not getting much in....ewwww sorry. I don't want to experience the dreaded BPing I have been hearing so much about.
Oh and Amy if you feel up to it will you share what type of Protein powder you are using. I am going to be looking into some. My nutritionist at the West Clinic suggested Beneprotein, but it has to be ordered and it AIN'T cheap. The plus side to this product is tht it is 25 cals per scoop. Now thats good, but if it taste like who-ha, then I'll leave it.
ok that was supposed to be PBing.ReplyDelete
First time reader here. Congratulations on your loss! I hope you feel better and that things with your band settle down a bit.ReplyDelete
Holy Moly!! You are ROCKING IT!!! I bet you can take those 14's to the Tailor!!!ReplyDelete
14! That's awesome! I wonder though why your band was acting up so much. I've only done the PB thing once so far, but you can tell that the band is pissed off. Hope you're feeling better!ReplyDelete
Holy crap....you a super star! Feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Woo Hoo - what a nice way to start the week! I bet you've already posted about this but I would love to see what a typical day might look like for you - meals, drinks, etc...ReplyDelete
The weight loss is wonderful news (the having a crummy weekend is not). I'm so glad those pounds went bye-bye and then some!ReplyDelete
I had a fun-filled food weekend and came back to a four pound gain so hopefully I'll have the same experience this week too!!!
I'm loving the new hair! You look gorgeous!! :)
GOT DOG! 14.5 pounds to go! girl you are doing it!!! you're my inspiration!! I do wanna slap my mama! lol! i should try it and see what happens...i'll just say Amy told me too.. :-)ReplyDelete

Congrats Amy - 14.5 to go!!!! You are amazing :)ReplyDelete
Great job on the WL!!!! You're looking fantastic, I espcecially love the hair!ReplyDelete
Ah for f*ck's sake Amy! What are you trying to do to me? Anorexia is so 80's. I am coming for your size 14 ass! It. Is. On.ReplyDelete
P.S. GREAT JOB! You're a monster!
YOU ROCK AMY!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations lady. The feeling must be incredible.
I hope your band mellows out and you feel better. Have a good week too, yes? Keep on rockin'!!
I really, really tried not to read this post. I was so livid that you didn't read blogs all weekend that I wanted to act out. I knew that as you read through the thirtysomething comments you usually get you would say, "Hey, Bonnie of Wishing and Hoping and Praying for a Band didn't leave a comment. She must be really mad at me." And then you would quickly come over to my blog and beg for my forgiveness. I would, of course, accept your apology as long as you promised never to ignore us again. But, alsas, I am a blogaholic and cannot resist. Sign...ReplyDelete
I meant Sigh......ReplyDelete
So glad the lbs came off - but not so happy with the behavior of your band! Ugh, they can be so moody ;)ReplyDelete
I have been gone for a week and just catching up on blogs - I wanted to tell you that you hair is fabulous, you look incredible! <3
Way to go getting your boat weight back off. I am so happy for you. I bet it is amazing being so close to goal. Your amazing Amy. Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the WL and the 14s!!! Whoo-hoo!!!!ReplyDelete
Right there with ya on the PBs and irritated bands this weekend. Sucks!
Wow Amy! So close to goal and looking fantastic! You are my heroine!!ReplyDelete
184 is awesome. congrats! i love fried pickles....ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the loss. But I've got a question about the small amount of food you took in. Don't you get weak and/or light-headed? My bloodsugar would be thru the floor (of course I'm not banded yet) and I'd have the shakes, sweats, etc. Does the band help this?ReplyDelete
Love your blog :)
I refuse to punish you. I think you would like it too much cuz you're a little perv at heart. Smooches sweets - I miss you!ReplyDelete
The loss is great but I'm sorry you were feeling so crappy. I know you speak the truth but when I hear things like the experience you just had when I'm still on full liquids and on day 8 post-op, it scares the begeezes out of me.ReplyDelete
Hopefully all of that finicky band stuff will leave you alone this week.
Still needing those 14s? Let me know...I'm ready to get rid of them.ReplyDelete
I saw the 184 on the ticker this morning and was wondering when you were going to talk about it. Saw you post on FB about feeling icky. I know you were looking forward to your weekend, cotton candy and all. I'm sorry you felt so ucky. Hopefully you don't go all haywire on the scale with the weird food intake. Just keep getting in your H2O, maybe?ReplyDelete
It seems like just yesterday you were trying to get over the 200 hump and now you are int he mid 80s! You are doing fantabulous!ReplyDelete
Ok so you are the skinny pretty biatch who lost 10lbs this week...not fair...ok it is fair I am just jealous....congrats...and 14's too....we weigh exactly the same....ReplyDelete
kickasssssss... (not the issues, but the weight loss!! )ReplyDelete
Fantabulous start to the week! Hope you band starts behaving itself better soon so you can eat and therefore feel better.ReplyDelete
And maybe a rando Q but what's a fried pickle like? Does it have batter on it? I'd never even heard of frying pickles until now...
I kinda want to slap you (in a good way -cuz I'm jealous!). I love FRIED PICKLES! Excellent choice my friend!ReplyDelete
As Amy said, you are an inspiration to those of us who haven't begun the journey yet :) I can't even imagine what PB'ing feels like, but I am sorry you went through that. Congrats on getting SO close to your goal!! Wowzers!ReplyDelete
And...fried pickles?! This Cali girl has no idea what to think of that, lol!
awww Amy I hope you feel better!! ZUMBA is tomorrow that will make you feel better!!! LOVE U!!!!ReplyDelete
Alright, one slapped Momma coming up! :)ReplyDelete
The only thing to be punished for is only giving us TWO updates in the past week. I'm going through Amy withdrawls :(ReplyDelete
OMG, I want to be a better person, but, I am so jealous.ReplyDelete
Jealous of your wt ls and that you ate fried pickles.
But mostly that you lost weight while eating fried pickles.
good for you! And at the risk of sounding a little creepy, you are just so cute!!ReplyDelete
