I'm B ack!!!!

Monday, July 02, 2012

Just wanted to pop by to say hi. Hope all is well in SP land. It's been 2 years and 4 months since my Band surgery. I Lost 125lbs in the first 10 months with no Fills. Still felt restriction and was sticking to no carbonation and eating low sugar foods. I get pretty good belly aches from sugar so that one is pretty easy to stick with and I don't the miss the soda at all. Wine though does show itself on the weekends. I can do the natural sugars no problem unfortunately and have gained a little of the weight back. I guess comfort has set in some . I'm still a tight size 14 and hopefully I'm nipping it before it gets crazy. I Just got my first fill a month ago and was sick as a dog for 24 hours. It angered my stomach big time. I Only got 1cc and don't see much restriction difference. When the Doctor did my fill he was amazed at first that I felt restriction with no fills. He did say that the air I had in my band sacs was my restriction I felt so now that the air is out and I have 1 cc of saline, I feel the same amount of restriction and need more. I am going in next week for my second fill . I do feel restriction just not enough. I work the system and need to be able to eat slower so I don't continue being hungry. I do know I need to not have the wine at all but it makes me mad that I have to give up everything that I like. I know i know one glass is fine but one glass is not easy to do especially with all the weekend festivities I've had. emoticon I will try though and boost up my exercising. I walk most everyday but I'm at the point I need more than just walking. Did some Dancing on the WII yesterday and it was fun... I've starting writing down my intake and I'm hoping that with that and getting another fill I will the weight-loss process again... wish me luck!!!!

    Thanks for the kind words Ilene, I did drink water before I left. I had to go pick up my daughter and should have gone right home. It was I bet an hour before I got to rest. I plan to go right home and rest and not eat too much before I go.

    I GOT MY LP A MONTH BEFORE YOU DID. I THINK YOU HAVE DONE TERRIFIC.
I AM REFUSED FILLS SO I WAS TOLD TO MEASURE MY FOOD INTAKE. ALSO BEFORE ANYONE WALKS OUT OF THE OFFICE. THEY HAVE TO DOWN A GLASS OF WATER TO MAKE SURE ALL IS OK. MAYBE YOU SHOULD DO THAT.
