Debbie Downer....maybe?

Why does my mind always go to the worst possible situation? 

I had my last fill on January 11th and the restriction was great.  I have found though over the last week that it has not been as tight.  I have had a few times where I have eaten too much too fast and had to bring it back up.  Of course my mind goes straight to my band has slipped or something is wrong with it and it's going to fail and I will be fat forever.  Of course I know this is probably not the case, but why do I immediately go there?  I called my Dr. office and they said not to worry about it and that my band is just probably getting adjusted and come in for my regular appointment on the 22nd.  I just need to simmer down now and not freak out, but it's been a week from you know where. 

I am getting really excited though about this weekend!!  My husband, dad, stepmom and I are going to over to the University of Alabama for a BBQ.  They are going to be former players there from the 50's up to the current National Championship team.  My dad played in the late 70's under Bear Bryant and won 2 National Championships in '78 and '79 so we get to be there 2 hours before the general public can come in and take pictures and stuff!  I am really looking forward to it.  See, I'm happier already! 


  1. Haha... I can relate, my first reaction is always to panick, which goes down the same road and ends up at I will always be fat...then I take a deep breath and come back to earth :)

    Have fun this weekend

  2. I think it is natural that you mind goes to that. It will happen less and less as you get further out ya know?

  3. If it makes you feel any better, that's exactly where my mind goes too. At least 4x a day. At LEAST!

  4. The band always seem to loosen after a while after an adjustment - I call it the settling in period

    It is never as tight as when you first get adjusted :-) oh well

  5. I do feel better, thank you guys!!
