are my boobs magnetic?

I know it's been awhile but I swear I have been thinking about you ....

I had the MRI a week ago today. Could they make that thing any smaller? I swear my elbows were touching the sides even when I had them stretched above my head. Plus it was hot as hell in there!

HELLO - 300lbs of woman stuck in a tube! Can you at least turn on a fan?

I made the tech come over and wipe my face b/c it was so sweaty. I told him my cheeks were sweaty too and he said "uhh i hope you mean the ones on your face."

Fortunately, it was only 20 minutes long. The tech says the bigger the organ the quicker the scan is. For a toe, it could take upwards of 60mins!

The funniest part of the whole thing was that when the machine really got going ... my boobs started to throb. Turns out that breastmilk is semi-metallic and even though I haven't breastfed in months I still may have some residual milk tucked away in there. It was a very strange feeling.

And after all that .... doctor says my liver is "normal."


  1. I'm glad your liver is clear!! I don't think I could do a closed MRI- I'm really claustrophobic.

  2. Brilliant that your liver is 'normal.' Interesting about the breast milk too. Who knew!

  3. Hooray for a normal liver! Throbbing boobs....quite interesting stuff.

  4. Glad you're doing good.

    That MRI sounds so uncomfortable. I once had to do a chest x ray and they squashed my boobs something fierce between two metal plates. If that's a taste of the mammogram experience, well, just great ;-(

  5. Hi!

    I am 18 years old and overweight...

    I Love reading all your info! very inspiring!! I have 37 days till my OP and I am incredibly nervous but very excited!!

    I have noticed that alot of people have said there are foods you can't have this is something my Dr has not said!

    so now I am nervous that I am going to be deprived!!

    but your blog is inspirational - THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE!

  6. Hi! I just found your blog. I think I live VERY close to you, so if you feel like having a close-by "band buddy", let me know! I would love to have someone local to share with. I hope to be having my surgery next month- fingers crossed. Who is doing your surgery? You can reach me at:

  7. Hi there, thanks for your comment.
    Fingers crossed on getting a close surgery date! The eating thing has really frazzled me. Yesterday was a bad day, i think today I am going to stick to take away healthish food!

    you have to let me know when your surgery is booked for?

    maybe it will be similar to when I have mine!

    stay strong!

    hope your well!
