An Awful Week
OMG sometimes I hate my band. This is the second time that I have gone in for a fill and done awesome during liquids and mushies phase. Been excited that I finally have restriction and just know that I have found my "sweet spot" and all will be right with the world. Then....as soon as I get to the solid food stage, I end up eating something that gets "stuck". Which starts a whirlwind of throwing up and swelling and ultimately getting to the point where I can't even keep water down. This time I waited it out, but after two days of not being able to keep water down and starting to get headaches from being so hungry, I had to go back in for an un-fill a second time. I am now down to 5.8 cc's. At one point I was at 7. I just know it's not enough, but I was so miserable before. I want to have good restriction and lose weight slow and steadily, but no so bad that I will tolerate the pain and there is no way I can ride out the swelling and not eat or drink for several days in a row. I am happy with my current weight loss and accept that I will have to rely on more willpower and less band. At some point however, this band has GOT to meet me halfway.
