Long time no see!
I am 25.4 pounds down! Wahoo! The most I have ever lost on my own is 30 so I'm almost at that. I haven't been feeling too well lately. I've had this awful sinus problem this week and it's caused me to have a severely upset stomach. Oh, speaking of upset stomach, I had my first stuck episode. Let me just say, "OUUUUUCHHH!!!" I'm a drama queen as it is when it comes to pain. I absolutely can't stand it! Well, let's just say I was eating a baked potato and forgot that I had a band. I wasn't chewing as well as I should have been and got a big chunk of it that just went down. I knew something was up because my chest got tight feeling and it started to hurt. I stopped eating and sat down on the couch then about 10 minutes later it started. At first I thought I just needed to use the bathroom. It was a feeling like I had never felt before. The next thing I know I'm hunched over my bathroom sink in pain and crying like a baby. I couldn't breathe well and it just HURT! I could feel it trying to go down. Every bit of clothing I had on me felt like it was too tight so I stripped down to nothing and sat in the bathroom floor in front of the toilet. Yea, nice mental image huh? lol I thought I was literally dying lol. Again, keep in mind here that I'm a drama queen with pain. Zero tolerance level. Well, about thirty minutes later it finally passed. I felt a lot better. I never threw up or slimed and I actually think I would have rather done that than sat there in pain like I did.
After that I've had this awful sinus issue so I haven't felt like working out at all. I also haven't really been able to eat anything either. Oh, off topic here. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get in 64 oz of water a day?! I'm doing good to get in 20. I know, it's awful. It's showing too because I think I'm getting dehydrated. My skin is dry, pee is darker, and lips are chapping. I need to get something to measure what I'm actually drinking. Someone told me that if you drink two of the large bottles of Smart Water a day then that is exactly 64 oz. That may be the easiest way for me to find out. Anyway, I hope the rest of you are doing absolutely wonderful!! My next post I will have some before and after pics and let me just tell you, I thought I couldn't tell I was losing at first......holy cow! That's what I looked like was a big cow!
