Just trying to keep up!

I've been reading everyone's posts but haven't felt compelled to write one. What's up with that?

Our wine tasting trip was a lot of fun, 4 couples went. We made wonderful dinners, a couple of nights in our rooms and drank plenty of really good wine. The central Ca. coast is soooo beautiful and our friends were amazed at how close, 3 1/2 hrs, this hidden gem is. I will post pictures later.

My weight loss has been the sacrifice of being on the edge of acid reflux ;-( The 2 weeks of Previcid was great. But as soon as I stopped, it was back in a minor way. I bought Zantac 75, for days when it comes back, which is about 3 times a week. NOT GOOD .........I KNOW!!! I am reluctant to go and get a minor unfill....because I love how I feel with the amount of food I eat. But, I WILL GO!!

All of a sudden, everyone is noticing and commenting on my new shape and weight loss. It is kind of embarrassing, because I haven't told anyone about the band. My normal response is, thank you, I've been trying really hard.

NSV I have been throwing my clothes in the dryer, in an effort to shrink that's different ;-)

On the home front ...things are a little tense around here because my husband's company, that he has worked for 16 years at, is probably, closing their doors in the next month or so. Lot's of things to consider.... insurance, job hunting, staying positive, trying to get medical stuff done before the insurance runs out or changes...........AND DID I SAY STAYING POSITIVE??? Just to say the least!

OK...that's enough!

Another Fill Update

Well, thanks to so many of you suggesting that I try Prevacid or some other antacid, I did .....and what a difference a week makes. My mother and I went to Prescott AZ , and I experienced very little if any acid reflux....Thank goodness!!! I am on a 14 day plan and hope that when I stop taking it, I still remain acid free!!!

What a great feeling!!!!

I'll keep you posted-
