Its so cold in this house. My fingertips are blue.

Yesterday I went for another fill. I had 0.3mls put in. This takes me to 6.3ml in my band.

I cant say that I feel a whole lot different, but I am not sure...

This is such a surreal thing. I know what 'way to tight' feels like. I know what 'oh so slack' feels like. What I have now is I think different to a few days ago... but I'm not sure.

Hmmm. I will monitor it for a few days and see.

Today's intake:
1 wholemeal pitta with cheese and onion sandwich filler
1 bowl tomato soup and 2 slices bread and butter
spaghetti carbonara and a green salad.
Vanilla fromage frais.

I have not been hungry between meals. I feel full and satisfied, but able to complete my meal. I have not been sick.

Hopefully this is it. I am slightly panicky that my band is broken... not because I actually think it is, but because in some strange sense I felt that when I was choking on every meal at least I knew the band was there, whereas now I am eating, albeit gingerly, adequate amounts. I am worried that something will go wrong, I guess because I have put on weight. I have put on 8 pounds in the last 4 weeks. 2 pounds a week since I had my really restrictive fill taken out. That's stressed me out a hell of a lot.

I just hope being back to work, coupled with 0.3ml will sort me out for a while. I don't think I can face another drive to London this month!


  1. I hope this works for you Bunny! I had my first fill today-you can go to my blog and read the dirty details. It was kinda weird and creepy and strange all at the same time!

  2. I can totally understand why you would be questioning if your band was broken again, but I assure you, it isn't!! You're doing great... just make sure you eat foods that make you full (whole foods!) I was eating soft foods even with fill out and wondering why I was still hungry! Then I realised that I should actually eat salads and veges... and when I did, I had to puke, which made me realise that I still had to be careful and that my band was still there and working perfectly! :)

  3. Good info. I want to be at a place where I can eat smaller amounts and have the right restriction...but not too tight. I think you're doing great!
