Its Wednesday - I suck with catchy titles :)

I got this from Vanessa - who got it from Leigh.  Both of these ladies seriously ROCK IT athletically!  I also love this! Oh so TRUE!!!


SO - I really - I mean REALLY just need this damn incision to heal already.  WTF!! I went to see my surgeon yesterday and he had to reopen part of it (not fun!!!!) because there was an abscessed stitch....but apparently that is not an infection which is good.  So he cleaned it and packed it up so we shall see!  Another 2-3 weeks of healing - ugh!

Otherwise, I am really feeling good.  All the pain from the original port is gone.  I am doing well mood wise and I am really wanting to work out......  With the pain gone, I really want to hit the gym hard. I have been able to refocus how committed I can be.

I have maintained between 219-221 through out this whole process (I was 222 on the day of surgery 3/18/13).  So I am happy there has not been any gain.  I need a fill but I cannot get anymore until he is sure there is no sign of infection and the incision is closed.  SIGH.  In the meantime, I am enjoying things like apples, lettuce, and the occasional sandwich with bread.  I do love that when I am unfilled that I crave the stuff like that! 

Hope everyone is having a good week!! 


  1. I really did not know what was going on for you - but wow - it sounds like you have had quite the journey with your port/incision/healing! I'm so glad that hopefully you are in the home stretch. That is great you have maintained, and you have kept such a terrific attitude. After all this, "just" working with your band will probably seem easy in comparison!

    I'm glad your spirits are high and you are looking forward to exercising too - all great! :-D

  2. Great title, and quote:) Best wishes for a speedy incision healing!

  3. Hope you heal quickly, ladybug!

  4. I am impressed with your no gain....I gained inbetween waiting for the port and getting my first fill. Your doing will come..I just know it
