5 Day Pouch Test!

I Have decided to do the 5 day pouch test!! for those of you who don't know what that is.. check it out at if that's not right, then just google it!! Its pretty neat for the people who think they might have stretched their stomach out or think that they don't have restriction.. I got a fill last week and I just don't feel like I am getting the restriction that I want or need.. and I think its just me.. So I am doing this test to check myself! Its a good kick start to eating right again.. BECAUSE I DO NOT EAT LIKE I SHOULD!
Today is day one.. I am kind of suffering, but its so mental!
I will try to keep you updated.
most results are 5-10 # weight loss, in 5 days!! YEAH.. go ME!

Here is the diet:

Days One & Two: Liquid Protein low-carb protein shakes, broth, clear or cream soups, sugar-free gelatin and pudding. Read more.

Day 3: Soft Protein canned fish (tuna or salmon) eggs, fresh soft fish (tilapia, sole, orange roughy. Read more.

Day 4: Firm Protein ground meat (turkey, beef, chicken, lamb), shellfish, scallops, lobster, fresh salmon or halibut. Read more.

Day 5: Solid Protein white meat poultry, beef steak, pork, lamb, wild gameRead more.
Good luck! I believe you are going to like the results when you give this plan an honest try.

Have a great day!

I am still here

Good morning Friends!
I am still here....
Band life has been kind of quiet!
I got an unfill in July.. I want to say around the 10th..
Because For some reason the sucker just tightened up like crazy on me! So I had 4cc removed..
I went Yesterday and saw Dr. Malley I got a fill.. 3cc!! Let see how that does.
I was surprised. I only gained 8 lbs in a month and a few days.. I thought that was pretty good for being unfilled to almost empty!
I have not felt much restriction today from the fill, we will see what happens, I have not tried to eat much yet.
I hope everyone in my band world is doing great!!!! Keep me updated
I love reading every ones blogs! I just can't keep up with mine.. I wish I could.
I will leave you all with some pictures, If you are on my Facebook you see all of these!
Love ya All

Good Morning!

Hello ALL!!!!

Its so True.. It seems like after the first year of getting banded, people seem to fall off their Blog.. I mean, I forget to write on here all the time.. I alway read all of my favorite blogs, but fail to update mine.

I guess I don't have much to update, besides the fact that I am still around the same weight, I have held the weight of 150-155 for over a year now.. I did jump up to almost 160 right before I got my gallbladder removed. Then During that horriable week I dropped to 142.. (ALL WATER). I very quickly gained that back and the scale teeters between 148-150. I am very happy with that! I love the way I look with my clothes on but when It comes to putting on a swimsuit, I think uhhhh!!! Not likeing the legs much.. Oh well I am 100lbs lighter so I can't complain, right?

I have a NSV, (i think) I am not sure how to take it.. But for me it kind of felt good and bad in the same time.

I had a patient today at work tell me that I looked much better "Fat". How would you take that?

I mean in one way its like WOW! I have never ever heard that, and then in another way its like, hmmm do I really look sick?

He said he is worried about me and that It looks like I just am not eating. I wanted to say "dude, you have not seem me with my real clothes on and not these huge fat making scrubs on."

I explained to him that I juts had my gallbladder out and I did loose a lot of weight from that, but I am "trying" to gain that back (Yeah right!)

He has known me though the whole band process and Knows that I do have the band.

I will add some pictures for you all to see.

I am on FACEBOOK.. I am not sure If I have said this or not before.

I do have lots of picture on there as well.

Hope everyone has a great day and a great summer, Not sure when I will be back to update!!


This was during my Absolute favorite CLASS ever!! Gloria's Re-boot Class! AMAZING

Bye Bye GallBladder

Good Morning!!
Welcome to the land of Boring Katie!!

Ok, last Monday May 3rd. I thought I was having a MASSIVE heart attack... I went to the ER and was having a GallBladder Attack!! for those of you that have not experienced this yet.. I DO NOT WISH THIS UPON YOU!!! It about killed me! I had it removed the next morning! Now I am off work until the 20th.. and I am in complete Boredom! The plus would be that I have lost 14lbs in one week.. I know that is not good at all! Trust me I don't like it!

Well I don't have much to say, just that this sux!! anyways! I will talk to you all later!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010


So I have noticed that my blog is pretty boring compared to some of the others that I read.. I really don't know how to do this Fancy blog stuff, I need to spend some time and look around and figure it out!

Does anyone even read it?? Oh well if not I am still going to write!

This is my 3rd week of re-boot book camp...AHHHHHHH that's all I have to say! I love this class, and I love the girls in the class, we have fun while totally cussing and going crazy on those last reps of lift and squats and whatever else Gloria has in store for us!

Tonight I am excited to see what she has "added" to the grove!

As far as weight loss, I feel I have lost a bit... From my scale it shows that I have lost about 4lbs since I have started.. I am a horrible water drinker, I don't get enough water in one day..That's my own fault, I just don't like to sit and sip on water!! I don't really drink anything... I don't even like pop all that much! Strange.. I know. Although I did try some DIET Sunkist Lemonade today, and it was good! I might have to start drinking that!

I can't wait until summer! It just wont come fast enough! We are getting season tickets to Worlds of fun and Oceans of fun. (our water and amusement park). I hate water parks.. or should I say I use to hate water parks, Just something about walking around all day on HOT pavement with burning feet and of course those nasty legs jiggling as I walk through the park, does not sound too appetizing, but after Gloria is finished with me I should be one hot mama at the water park!! HA HA!

OK, enough of my ramblings, I better get busy so I can make it to class on time!!

Happy Monday!!!

Well Today will start Week 2 of my re-boot!!!

Gloria is my trainer, She is kicking my ASS! Last week I could not walk and this weekend I could not poop, (my stomach muscles hurt too bad)! She had us do 360 crunches Friday, and from what I hear that is nothing compared to what we will be doing!! This is a 6 week program, Monday-Wednesday-Friday.. She is amazing. I have never had someone push me this hard, and I need it!!!

I look forward to going.. I have also met some really neat girls! We all have different stories and I love listening to them.. (Hi Brandi.. I think you are probably reading so I thought I would say Hi!) LOL...

Well Girls lets kick it up high tonight and get those heart rates up!!!
My target rate is 154-164.. I have made it to 183!! ahhhh

I forgot to add about my weight.. Well I have not moved up or down. 159 was what she weighed me in at on Monday. She also did measurements.. I will try to update on my progress!!


Thursday, February 11, 2010

Starting Fresh

Ok.. I have been bad!! I got an unfill in September.. I got a little out of hand over the holidays.. When I got my unfill I weighed 142... Well yesterday I went and got a much needed fill!! The weigh in was devastating but I expected it!!! I just have been really bad.. The night before I ate a 6inch sub!! AHHHHHH.. Ok ok. I weighed 162. So I got 1.8cc put back in. I am still trying liquids at this point to ease back into the "band" life.. I need to practice for a couple of days. I will keep you all up to date on how I am doing!!!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


So Today I totally had an NSV!!! (none scale victory)!!! I learned that term and love it!!! Because the scale has been making me very mad right now!!!!!. NSV's make me feel real good!

Today I went to donate blood.. Before you donate you have to go through a little screening thing. The lady doing my screening said "how much do you weigh" and we all know that a little over a year ago I would have lied! But today I proudly will say the weight.. So I said "155" Even though I should be saying 150. But anywho.... her response to that was: "little ol' you weighs 155, no way! you are smaller than that" I told her "yeah I weigh 155 and I am darn proud of it, and now I am even more happy that you said that!" So of course we got on the subject of how I lost it and next thing you know, she was writing down the number to Dr. Malley... I can't tell you how many times I have given out his number, website, and my website!!! I am just a walking infomercial... LOL!

Anyways.. that was my NSV! Felt great!

And I did donate the blood.. so I SAVED A LIFE!

Well I hope everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving!!! I know I will enjoy it!

Fills and Unfills

I thought I could post my fill and unfill Log:
There is not a single bander out there that will have the same issues with their band as the other banders! Each person is unique with their own band.....
My fills and unfills will not be the same as anyone because EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT... I just wanted to give an idea of what I have gone through and what someone else might.
I have had several unfills, but Most of the banders I have talked to have never had an unfill! That's what I mean by everyone is different!

Band Filled in Surgery- +5cc (most do not get filled during surgery)
First fill 6-16-08 +2.5cc
unfill 6-17-08 -0.75
fill 6-30-08 +0.3
unfill 7-09-08 -0.4
unfill 7-15-08 -0.8
unfill 8-18-08 -3.00
fill 9-?-09 +1.5
fill 11-5-08 +0.1
unfil 11-14-08 -0.2
unfill 11-24-08 -0.6
fill 1-30-09 +3.00
unfill 4-24-09 -0.6
unfill 7-12-09 -0.5
unfill 9-14-09 -0.8

*Dont be scared, most banders do not go in this much for fills and unfills... Once you learn your band you will know...

BLOG buddy Questions

One of my Blog Buddies, posted these questions.. I can't respond to her post and its making me mad! So I will just answer them on my own post and that way everyone on my blog can have the questions answered as well, they are very good questions to ask about the band... here is goes!

For you KRISTEN~
Questions:1. Did any of you experience hair loss after your surgery? (This is something I am really freaked out about. I heard it doesn't happen often but in some cases it does.)
I don't think I would say I had hair loss, but I can say my hair seemed thinner….. Now that I know protein is important my hair seems better!
2. How many days do you think I should take off of work after my surgery? Or lets put it this way, how many days did you take off of work? (I work in retail so I am constantly on my feet f.y.i.)
I had my surgery on a Thursday, I took off 7 days.. (including the weekend) I could have gone back in 4-5 days. Its nice to take the extra time!

3. From post-surgery liquid diets, the actual surgery or anything else, what was your least favorite part of your whole lap band experience?
I had to do the pre-op diet, 2 week full liquid! That SUCKED. I did not like the liquid diet afterwards either; I had to do full liquid for the first 5 days after surgery. I loved the mashed potatoes stage!

4. For those of you who were fortunate enough to have insurance pay, how long did it take for you to get your approved letter?
I had my appointment on January 24, was approved by January 28 ( NOT THE USSUAL CASE!) I have noticed that most of my friends have taken 4-6 weeks

5. This is random, but do any of you have Independence Blue Cross? Just curious because that is what I have :)
I have Blue Cross Blue Shield (federal)

6. How long have you had the band and how many pounds have you lost thus far?
I was banded 5-8-08.. I have lost 100-110.. Depends on the day.. I have been bouncing between 145-155

7. Did you have any issues with throwing up after surgery? I am a little scared about this.
I can say with the band you will learn that throwing up can be a normal thing.. I was one that hated to throw up!!! Now It does not faze me! I am not saying that you need to do it on a daily basis, but until you get use to the band and CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW and take SMALL bites you will get stuff stuck! And when it gets stuck, you might have to throw it up! I am not talking about becoming anorexic but you will have an occasional vomit… Not a massive vomit episode but a minor gag…. Does this make sense?

8. How soon after surgery did you get your first fill?
My doctor will not do the first fill until 6 weeks from the surgery date

9. How long do you have to wait after surgery before you can start working out?
I started walking the first week! IT helped get the gas out of my system.. I am the worst about working out! Its been over a year and I hardly ever work out.. OOOOPPPPSSSS

10. How long after surgery before you felt comfortable enough to drive?
I was tired the first couple of days, I just slept. But you could drive by day 3 or so,,

Wednesday, September 16, 2009


I am feeling sooo much better!

I had a taco last night and I thought I was in heaven!

I think the unfil was much needed.. Hope I don't need a fill in a few days! I will just watch what I eat and try to stay away from junk.. Even though the store here at work has put the Halloween candy out for sale already! YUMMY! I bought a bag of Twizzlers!

I am so excited, I am going to Minnesota for the USMTS races.. CAN'T wait! I need a vacation very badly!

I better get back to work.. just wanted to update ya'all

Monday, September 14, 2009


I went in today and got 0.8 taken out!!! Let me tell you, I felt instant releif!! Shew!!!!!!! I'm doing liqueds for a day or so. I'll keep ya updated!
Not having a good day.....
Ok.. Wednesday night I got a severe severe sever Headach! I started vomiting Thursday because of the pain from my head, or at lease thats what I thought... well It kept going on through friday.. So I am thinking I had a stomach virus.... Well as we all know with lap-band excessive vomiting leads to swelling of the upper GI, which does what???????? MAKES THE BAND TIGHT!!! So saturday and Sunday I could not keep anything down, and I mean anything! I kept telling myself, its not the band its not the band.. I have come to a conclusion today, my band is way way way too tight! I NEED AND UNFILL! I am going in today at 2!!! I have never been this excited to get an unfil!! I cant wait to even have soup! I decided when I step on the scale today and it said 142.5... IT's TIME TO GAIN SOME Weight.. I look like shit! My eyes are black! I never ever thought I would say "im too thin" and I can say that today!!! YIPPIE! I know as soon as I start eating and drinking again I will go back to 150.. thats where I want to be!

I will update after my appointment!

I really need to be a blogger

Ok.. I admit I am a blog stalker!!!! I have like 3 or 4 blogs that I read all the time at work when I am bored!!!!

As you all may know.. When I was looking into lap-band I started reading all these Blogs of patients who have already had it done.. IT WAS A HUGE SUPPORT TO ME!! So that is why I started one of my own, so I could be a support to others..

I am not sure if I am stalked or not, but hey at least I can help someone!!!

I know I am bad Blogger...... I read others blogs and they write every darn day! Maybe I should do that, instead of bitching to people at work, maybe bitching on here will help!!!!

Ok, So here it goes I am going to start writing each and every day.. LOL YEAH RIGHT!!!

So how is everyone? Anyone Reading this?

BTW, still have not heard from anyone about the commercial yet...................................I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW! I want to see my beautiful face on TV.. hehe.. not really!

So I have been going to Lakeside on Friday nights to watch Dirt Racing... LOTS OF FUN!

Hmmm What else can I say.. Oh yeah, I absolutely HATE this weather.. Flippin September and its a freezing 55 degrees outside...?... WTF? GRRRR!

ok ok.. I better get back to work.. maybe i will feel like writing later:

Bike Blues and BBQ! I get to take a bike trip with my dad and some friends to this fun event! I hope I get my bike ready.. I need to check a few things and make sure its ready to go! Maybe I can bum a ride from someone...

Tootle for now! talk to you all Laters!
