Happy unfill

Wholly Cow I was tight. Had a unfill Thur of .35 1/2 of the fill from 2 weeks ago. I feel alot better. I can sleep without up chucking. I have the greatest PA ever. She always explains thing to me and is willing to do what I want, of at least make me feel that way. Apparently my stomach is not working with my head and telling it when I am full, I have to pay closer attention to my band and the little sighs it gives me. I go back in 3 weeks to see how its going. I love the not getting hungry for hours and the 6 lbs loss in those 2 weeks. Hoping it stays the same with the unfill.

6 month in Band camp

6mo,really? What a ride! I never imagine what this would be like and do not know just how to describe the journey but here goes. Of course it all started way befor surgery. The waiting, the hunger, the "is this really going to happen to me feeling and will it work". I had no idea what BP"S, slimming, and stuck meant. I do now. i would do it all again and again. I have cried at the hospital in pre-op and at the Dr. office. I have gotten very angry with staff when I did not get the answers I wanted or the fills fast enough. If I can give any advice I would say slow is working wonders. I had to learn a lot and am still learning and losing. I feel better than I have in years. i am down 47 lbs and 55 to go. I am proud when I walk in a room in my size 16 jeans. and I have to say things have hot in the bedroom. wink, wink. So I have learned that in bolg land that if you blog it you have to do it, right? Well I have not committed to to many goals. But I have come up with one I want and it is scary to put it in writing. but this is it. my oldest son, wife and granddaughter hike. Yep Hike, I always said I am not a hiker and did not want to, but this summer my son tried to get me to hike to a lake in the mountain. I told him I just wasn't ready yet. Well i saw photos of some of the lakes they hiked to and said to my self I want to go there. I love the water and to swim and the lakes are the most beautiful I have ever seen( in pics only) I want my own pictures and I want to jump in the lakes and lay in sun. Thank you to all my followers and the help, sharing and support you have given me. I cant wait to meet all of you in person. Love you all. Chris

Going for a fill and the Holiday challenge

Well it has been 3 weeks from my last fill and I am still hungry every 2-3 hours. I have 9.5 in my band now and I am little nerves about getting too full, but I am going for it. I do not want to go into the holidays being able to eat like I can now. I had a hamburger on bread with cheese, pickles and lettuce last night. I don't think I should be able to eat that much. And I have only lost about 1.5 lbs. I think I will do the Holiday challenge.
