Haven't been posting (just basically lurking).
Just thought I would update a bit on my weightloss journey.
I had a fill in my band on 2/28. When I was weighed I knew I was back up to 241. Sure 'nuff the doc scale confirmed it.
My band wasn't tight yet (it's not supposed to be tight until you have a fill - saline fluid injected in the band to cause the membrane to fill and tighten the band around your pouch).
ANYWAYS...to make a long story short. I'm finally on the losing end again. Down to 229.5. YEAH! ! ! that's a big weightloss in a week...but I know a bit of it is water weight as well.
My eating is so minimal. I get full on 4 or 5 bites of food. I throw away so much because I can't get it into my head that I can only eat small amounts anymore. *sigh*.
I've learned that I can't have fluids with my meals. Before my fill I was able to do that, but now it just causes me pain to no end. I usually wait until I've been done with my meal for an hour or so.
Anyways, that's my big ole update. I post to my journal here on the site nearly everyday now.
Hope all of you are doing well, and are on the journey to becoming a beautiful LOSER! ! !
