Not sure what to do.

I'm not really sure what to write about anymore. Since I'm not *actively* trying to lose weight for the time being (since I'm pregnant and all) and I've been maintaining 235 for a couple of weeks now, I guess there's just not much to talk about! So... I'll just ramble for a minute.

I've heard that usually the band tightens up during pregnancy, and most women end up needing a total unfill by the time the baby's born. So far, though, I haven't really had any problems. Any PBing episodes have been due to me forgetting to chew/take small bites etc. In fact, it almost feels looser than before! I've actually been able to eat a bowl of cereal in the mornings which is just crazy. Usually I'm lucky to get my protein shake down in the AM.

Oh, I guess there IS one piece of big news to share. For the last year or 2, Marc and I have been planning to move to Texas upon returning to the USA. Marc's parents are there, teachers get better pay there, and there are more/better job opportunities. Well, about 2 weeks ago, one of the *big* bosses from the company I worked for in Alabama (before we came to Korea) contacted me with a really great job offer. Basically, it would just be silly to turn it down. Marc and I talked about it for a day, and decided to accept. SO, 2 years of "plans" out the window just like that! It's good though. I love Birmingham, AL. It's been my home since I was 7 years old. My family is there, we have friends there, and I'm happy to go back to my old company (I'll be a supervisor, with actual underlings. This should be good.).

Just 65 days until we leave Korea, and so much to do in that time. Packing, shipping things home, finding a place to live, finding a place for the cats to live until we have a place to live, finding doctors (OB and Lapband)... for now, I'm just going to enjoy my Sunday afternoon.

Maintaining is a good thing right now I agree and the fact that you have not had to have any unfill that is awesome. You are doing great with the band. Also awesome you are coming back to Alabama. It will be great to have you back in Alabama. I can help you with the doctor. My doctor is at St. Vincent East he is Dr. Lee Schmitt he is in with Dr. Miles. Congrats on the job and after you get settled we can have lunch again. Happy Vday.
