I got a fill last week

i decided to get a fill. It was my first one since Thanksgiving. She gave me 1.5 cc's a little more than I was expecting. I was on liquids the first day then soft the next. Basically I had two bowls of turkey chili that I made. Got down to 175. Today I had a little bit of chili. I started getting that feeling again and decided to walk very briskly back to my room so I could be there just in case. Good thing I did because as soon as I got there i started the spitting thing. Then I did a little throwing up just a few and boy did that feel better. So I guess the fill is working. However when I got on the scale today I was back to 177. What the heck. This is after a 5k I did on Saturday. I did terrible on the 5k. I was trying to beat my old 41 min time, except I forgot my watch. Which means I had no idea how slow I was going. I finished in 44 min. And the last two days I have been so sore. Why I have no idea but none the less my thighs and calves feel like I was stretched in one too many directions and i am walking like a 100 year old woman. I am still glad I got the fill, and hopefull it will get me to close my mouth a little faster. On the good news front I lost 16 pounds since I was at the Dr on Thanksgiving. She was very impressed and said I look great. I asked her if most people got plastic surgery. She said you are so young that you shouldn't need any. Your neck isn't sagging and your stomach looks so good. No mind you I think my stomach looks a hot mess but I guess when you are comparing much older people who have lost 100's of pounds mine does look better. She says just do some planks and you will strenghten your core. We'll see I still think if I do manage to lose another 10 or 15 I might need to get a tuck.

I wouldn't mind being up this late if...

I wouldn't mind being up this late if I didn't have to work tomorrow. You know maybe sleep in late, roll over and pull the covers up. But it is 3:30 in the morning and I have been up since 2. I don't know why, just woke up out the blue. So now I am online reading up on how to make the class more fun on St. Patrick's Day. I used to teach older grades so I never had to plan anything but it turns out 2nd graders still believe in little leprechauns and are expecting them to do something in the classroom.

Anywhooo I got on the treadmill yesterday and decided to increase my speed. I put it up to a 5.0 and could run for about a minute. Went down to a 3 then back up to 5. I guess it was like interval training but that wasn't my intention. I did a mile in 16 minutes. That is so pitiful. When I watch shows like Heavy or Biggest Loser and see these 300 pound people run for an hour I can't belive it. How come I can't run for 5 minutes.

In food news, I skipped my salad I packed today and ran to Chick Fill A. I got a chicken salad wrap and fries. I didn't eat the fries and I had half of the wrap for lunch and the other half for dinner. Guess that is not so bad. But I should also say I had three handfulls of m&m's, a cookie, and a bite of eggs also today. Maybe I should get a fill.

what to do?

Well I haven't lost any weight in a long time. and I know exactly why. I mean it is all about calories in, calories out. So I either need to eat less or exercise more.
Yesterday at recess i decided to run a lap with the kids. 1 lap is about 1/4 of a mile. Well let me tell you I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Now of course last year I wouldn't have been able to do it at all but I did it. Funny thing is the kids were like "we can walk as fast as you run, you should just walk" No mind you I am huffing and puffing the whole way. So this tells you it has been quite a while since i worked out.
There is a 5k coming in a few weeks put on by my school. I don't really want to do it unless I can run the whole way and since the 1/4 mile was a challenge I am thinking I won't be running.
I don't want to be embarrased around friends.

In other news I bought 2 pair of size 14 pants!!! Down from a size 22 when this all started. Now I still have mostly 16's in my closet since they still fit.

I think about getting a fill but then I think I really don't need a fill since I still have restriction I just need to close my mouth a little and stop eating so much. But then if I had more restriction maybe I wouldn't be able to eat as much. What I have been doing lately is eating waiting a minute to burp and then eating more. Should I get another fill I am at 10.5 cc's now and looking at others blogs I feel like i have more than anyone in my band.
