I can handle a lot, I really can. However, I just looked at my weight excel spread sheet to see when the first time was that I got into this tens bracket. It was July 1... JULY! I have been struggling with this same 10 pounds.. HELL the same FIVE pounds since JULY! I weighed in at 217.2 this morning which is down from last week but up from my lowest weight. On July 1st, I weighed 220.0. Suckdog.
So... to not let this get me down TOO much, I called and made an appt for a fill and what do you know they got me in on TUESDAY! YAY!!! I'm really going to lay it out there and tell the NP all of this. Tell her I have about 5 more months of "free" fills in my self-pay package and I'm sick of weighing the same thing. I'm going to tell her to be aggressive and give me a freaking FILL and not a fill. I obviously need some more help unless I'm just one of those people that the band doesn't work for. I don't believe this to be true since I'm maintaining my weight and DO feel some restriction. Things are definitely different in how I eat as well. I eat MUCH slower and have to do so or I feel like I'm stuck for a bit. I get the hiccups if I stop thinking for a minute and take a drink too quickly after a bite of food (I have fessed up to taking one or two drinks (sips) while I eat). There are a lot of things! I am hardly ever hungry and that is GREAT! I just need some help with my food quantity and that means I need a FILL! Please!
I'm going to admit to being excited to be getting a fill before Thanksgiving too so I don't have the ability to pig out. I was a bit worried about my will power on turkey day!
That's that. I'm gonna get a fill and assume that's the only problem so I don't give myself an aneurysm and just keep truckin' along!
Happy Friday to you all!
