First, I have to say the 9cc volume is a noticeable and effective fill. I was very concerned I would be too tight, but really, this tweak (.25cc) is enough to "turn off" my desire to graze and keep me very content with just 1/2 cup of food.
I was going to go in for a fill last month but decided not to, now I regret waiting..
Well, yesterday was RACE DAY.. and we had an absolutely beautiful day for Team Mark to gather and run/walk the 5K..
Team Mark- Philadelphia raised $6,280 + Team Mark-Boston raised $900 for a grand total of $7,180!! [thanks K..hugs]
Some of team members decided to run (the young one) and then the others just enjoyed a good walk..
I chose to do a rather "quick ass pace walk with my Dad"..
I have to say, the ole guy can still move at a good clip and had me playing catch up a few times.
I guess a 5K equals 3.5 miles and I think we finished under an hour around 55 minutes or so. And I felt it later in the day as my calves went into spasms.. I moaned to my husband every time it happened.
OK, now for some pics from yesterday..
Here we are with the Philadelphia Eagles Mascot "SwooP" before the race
