Weigh day and a bunch of bitching

Greetings Bandland! Today is my weigh-day and I am down another 5.3 lbs. (2.4 Kg.) to 223 (101.1 Kg.). That is the end of the good news in this post. The rest will be a bunch of bitching.

Saturday brought TOM to town and I was too tight for solid foods. Sunday and Monday were fine, but Tuesday and thus far today, no-go. TOM has left so I'm not sure why the ├╝ber-tightness.

Last night was HORRIBLE. I had a couple of bites of dinner and BAM! STUCK. So I quit eating. After a half hour, I had some iced tea. I felt like my stoma was jam-packed with food, but I'd hardly had anything. By 10:00 PM I had no relief. My neck muscles were screaming - somthing that has only happened one other time and I had to have an un-fill. It wasn't the shoulder/neck pain from being full. It was horrible neck pain that I've come to associate with being way too tight. I took some ibuprophin for the pain and threw up the water I drank with them. Luckily the pills stayed down. I threw up three or four times and finally felt a little better.

This morning my coffee would barely go down. I only drank a couple of sips of it. No fun.

I have been really stressed so I am assumming that is why I'm having issues. Yesterday I was on the verge of quitting my job. I had a run-in with some former tenants and my boss has been nit-picking every little thing. I can't even articulate how upset with him I was. I wish he wouldn't wait until the busiest time of the year to try to get all up in the middle of things. My co-worker who I've complained about before was sick for about three weeks so everything is really behind and chaotic and I don't need him changing forms and going over every item looking for inconsequential errors. There litterally isn't enough time for it right now. After I was so stressed with work, my fella decided that would be a great time to start in on me too so now he and I are hardly talking. I know I bit his head off, but I don't feel bad about it since I told him I didn't want to talk at that moment and he kept provoking me.

Anyways...I hope the band gets back to normal soon. It has been pretty fine since my .4 cc un-fill on May 17th.

I hope things settle down soon so you don't have to deal with stuckness and/or get an unfill.

I fear dealing with restriction during tax season for this very reason. It's amazing to me that our organs can be so affected by stress! Please take some time for yourself, do something relaxing! Your health depends on it! And congrats on the 5.3 lbs!

Hope it turns around soon.

Yea on 5+ lbs gone!!! I was stressed reading about your job! Life is too short for all that, but this is not the easiest economy to quit (unless you have something new lined up). Stress does do a number on the band! Hang in there!!!

Crappy day! But keep your head up, the sun doesn't hide forever, even if you have to look for it.

So sorry to hear your stress...why do men not read the signs and leave us when we are filled to the brim with work, kids and house stuff....we leave them when they are stressed...arghhhhhhh.

I hate when things are so chaotic. I hope that it calms down for you.

5lbs is an awesome weight loss! But don't suffer with being too tight for too long. You don't need to suffer.

Vent here when needed!!
