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!
