Today was fill day for me. After my weigh in I thought to myself I am not going to post about this visit.
Total lbs. loss = 0
The nurse just said, it's Ok..
Oh really, it's OK..
No.. it's not freakin OK.
I have to claim responsibility, but honestly I can't say I had many eating violations.
Alright I did have a beer at the Flyers game. I probably eat too many carbs..
I guess I am not a good bandster.
But then I thought, wait a minute.. I am on this freaking high dose progesterone pills, getting my TOTM ever other week, and now I need surgery.. That is probably enough to screw me up.
As I was sitting in the exam room (staring at all of the fill paraphenilia), the nurse walks in and says the doc wants to get a few xrays to make sure everything is ok with the band.
AHA! I thought,
I have been saying all along that the damn band has disappeared (I even dreamed about this) and now this doc is just catching up to my dx.
So into xray I go.. First a film shot with no contrast and then drink that little cup of white crap as fast as you can so we can get a shot of the band in action.
Sure enough I could suck down that crap without hesitation.
Back to the room,
I thought ... Oh God, I am going to get a lecture on why I didn't lose weight.
But no.. that sweet doc, comes in and tells me the band is in good position, you have some restriction visible but you probably have a few cc's to go before you are going to be in that sweet spot.
I jumped on the table and he did his routine pull out the volume (to confirm the full 7 cc) and he filled me back up to 8cc in my 11 cc band.
Now drink the water... everything went down fine.. great..I am going to probably need 10.9999 cc's to get a decent restriction.
He asked me if I was a quick eater..
Not really I replied.
He said those that are quick eaters sometimes realize that sense of restriction quicker.
I thought how the hell am I supposed to feel restriction on six small meals that should total 900 calories..
Great .. now I was just waiting for the nutrionist witch to walk through the door and lecture me.. but she did not show..
I thought... What is she going to tell me eat 200 calories maybe that will do the trick..
So I left with the high hopes that 8cc will feel like something..
I did have glimmer's of restriction before (after my previous fill) but that baby left town within a week or so..
It's been exactly 1 hour and 20 minutes since my fill..
I don't feel hungry.. I didn't eat my lunch either.. so I will probably stick to liquids tonight (eat when hungry approach)... I don't know.. maybe I am not band worthy.. only time will tell..
It is a beautiful day here.. As soon as my DH gets home we are going for a walk.. and at least enjoy what's left of the day.. be well my friends..
