New Appointment!

It was a warm, sunny, Monday afternoon and Sarah had just returned home from some exciting investigative work. As she emptied the contents of her purse, she noticed a notification on her cellphone. "One missed call from Dr. Bobby's office!" she exclaimed. "I better return the call!" She touched the screen of her phone and it roared to life as it returned the oh-so-important call. "Thank you for calling Dr. Bobby Bhasker-Rao's office. How may I help you?" the voice on the other end of the line asked.

"This is Sarah and I'm returning the call I missed."

"Oh yes. Sarah. Thank you for returning this oh-so-important call! You were originally scheduled for an appointment on Thursday afternoon. We're wondering, can you come on Wednesday afternoon instead?"

After a millisecond of careful thought and consideration, Sarah told her, "Yes." And the voice on the other end responded, "Thank you. I will put you in for that time." Sarah expressed her gratitude, gave her a closing greeting, and ended the call.


Two things to take away from the above "story": 1) My fill is TOMORROW!!! and 2) I should never quit my job to try my luck at writing. haha


I haven't kept a food log of any sort to this point, but this morning I did write down what I had for breakfast in my pretty Vera Bradley notebook I got from Barnes & Noble awhile ago. We'll see how long it lasts. Do any of you out there keep a log or did any of you keep a log in the beginning stages while you got used to the ways of the Lap Band? I have kept logs in diets before. One diet I tried was very calculated. I had to log calories, protein, carbs, and fats. Then I had to make sure I was eating the right percentages of p, c, and f. It was originally a body builder diet and was actually pretty good, but like every other diet, it fell by the wayside. Well, the calculation part at least. I tended to eat similar to the diet for awhile and it's pretty much a high protein deal, similar to Lap Band.

Welllllllll.... time to get to work. Hope everybody has a great day!


  1. So happy for your moved up appointment! And you could so be a writer! lol!!!

    I can not make myself keep a food log, the longest I have even went was mere days, I just can't make myself! Good luck with yours!

  2. I logged until I had good restriction (about 3 months) and then again when I was about 100 lbs. down and the weight loss slowed down. It is a useful tool!

  3. Hee hee. You are funny. :)

    I didn't log food until I got my Body Bugg. Amazingly, I'm almost obsessed with it now.

    Good fill!
