My First Award and News on My Fill

First, the lovely Melissa nominated me for my very first blog award! I would totally nominate her back if that were acceptable, because I follow her blog religiously since she was banded exactly a week after I was.

Liebster means ‘beloved’ or 'favorite' in German and it’s an honor to receive this award. The Liebster Blog Award is designed to bring additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 200 followers. If you receive the award, you should link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate five more blogs. Also, don’t forget to let them know that you nominated them! And the nominees are..........

CeCe- Even though she literally just was nominated by someone else, she's a great lady. She's always got something kind to say, so she deserves it :)

Brooke- She was just banded a few weeks ago and is doing great so far, even though she had to deal with some crazy kidney stones. Strong lady!

Kebs- She's not banded yet, and recently decided that she could possibly do RNY instead, but she's always got encouraging words and I'm enjoying following her journey so far.

Lucy- She's less than 2 weeks post op and doing great, so far. I'm enjoying getting to know her from her blog.

Kellie- She's 10 months post-op and I've read her blog since the beginning (before I decided to start a blog). I liked following her story from the beginning and she's doing so great. She's definitely an inspiration

So, there you have it ladies!

Now, on to other business...
I went for my first fill on Friday and it was so much easier than I expected. My NP was great and numbed me up real nice. Didn't even feel it. I now have 2 ccs in my 11 cc band and I've got to say, sometimes I feel it, sometimes I don't. Nothing disastrous has happened, it's just that sometimes I get full and sometimes I could eat a freaking cow. Or a whole box of Velveeta Shells and Cheese. Not that I've done that post-op. Pre-op, hells yes I did, and I totally miss it. But oh well. Life goes on...with less delicious, less neon yellow food. So, when I went in, I weighed 243.2 and my body fat is at 52% I'm pretty sure. Not too bad. It's not weigh in day til Thursday,  but, just between us, I've hit a new weight decade since Friday :)  super exciting!

Also, the insurance company called. Thanks everybody for commenting on my last post. I really needed it. You ladies and my dad were's taken care of. Hopefully they submitted it correctly this time, but they said it'd be fixed by this week and I'll be getting a corrected explanation of benefits in the mail. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm starting to get pretty frustrated with my clothes, mainly jeans. I'm kind of falling out of my size 22 pants, but I'm not yet fitting into my 20s without the dreaded camel toe. Awful, I know. But, the 22s are SOOOO BIG in the leg area and they're still pretty much fitting my waist. It's obnoxious. I need the leg size of 20s and the waist size of 22s. I really hope my body catches up with itself soon. I am absolutely not above living in sweat pants til I can properly fit a pair of jeans. Guess that's a perk of being a college kid.

And on that note, better go get some homework done.

Hope everyone's doing well :)

Congrats on the award, the fill, and the clothes falling off. Although I agree, it's kind of annoying, in a good way :)

You might just need to find a different fit of 20's - it took me looking around at a few different places to find a fit I LOVE for my current style of jeans. :)

Glad the insurance thing worked out!
