2nd fill

Today was my 2nd fill. It was pretty uneventful which I am grateful for. I got 2ccs for a total of 6 ccs in my 14cc band. I lost five pounds these last six weeks. I will take it. Especially since I did have a gain in there and my weekend full of buffets. So I will take my loss and smile about it. I am now at a total loss of exactly 66 pounds since my journey started. That loss does includes lowering my BMI & getting my liver healthier/unfat(ter). From May 18th to today I lost 66 pounds. I still can't freaking believe it.  
When I weighed in for my fill I was disappointed with only a five pound loss.  My Dr said she would like to see a half pound loss per week. WTF!  Talk about confusion as to what would be a good amount. I want at least a 1.5 pound loss per week.  Well, at least I hope for a 1.5 pound loss a week. 

I was the first fill appointment today and I got in & out pretty fast or at least I think so anyways. I had to stay and drink 24 ounces of water afterwards. OMGee it felt so weird to drink. 

Oh yeah, while I was having the fill done I was gurgling. It was strange. I almost had her stop but she was finished at that point. I had a smoothie after my fill and some soup about two hours later. I can definitely tell the difference. This sensation of getting full so fast seems very "strange" to me.  I am saying that is retrosspect and that is because I had soft serve ice cream for dinner and I got full of of about 3 ounces and it felt like I had over eaten and had a rock in my stomach.  Its been about two hours since I ate it and I still feel uncomfortable.

I am hoping I am not going to need an unfill. Share your thoughts with me.

Have a good night all!


  1. I hope you don't have to have an unfill! I actually hope my 2nd fill is as successful (as long as it's not to much!). I am enjoying the first, as I can definitely see the differences in my portion sizes, but I'm not quite there yet. Best of luck to you, and I am looking forward to seeing the pics of your new clothes!

  2. I would kill to fill full off 3 oz's of soft serve! I'm due for my third fill on Dec 9th...hopefully it will get me there. My doc says not to worry as long as liquids are going down fine. I'd see what solids feel like before I'd worry.

  3. 66 pounds!! That is awesome!! I'm still trying to get to 60. You are doing great :)
