Feeling better now :)

I think all my stomach needed was sleep and rest
Had liquids and a little bit of runny yoghurt yesterday was was still feeling some pain
But this morning...no sign of pain at all!
Just had a yummy mug of lemon&ginger tea and will remain on liquids and soft foods for the next few days just in case
At least it's been a nice boost to my weight loss!
I'm determined now to do this
I won't be going in for a fill for at least another 4 weeks I think
The doctor did tell me to go in next week for a fill but I think i'll wait it out a bit
I've found so many delicious, healthy recipes that I would love to try but I can't if I'm too tight

The future is looking good!

Update..yet another unfill

Okay so I have finally learnt my lesson...
Don't let the doctor give you a huge fill!
This weekend sucked...I was more thirsty than I was hungry
This morning I went to the doctors office and got lots of fluid taken out
First she took out 1.2cc
She told me to go for a walk, get a drink and if I still feel tight go back
So I did just that...and what do you know...Still tight!
I just constantly felt a pressure in my chest...however water actually went down fine
So she took out another 3cc!
So I barely have any fluid in my band
I still feel sore though. Around my diaphragm
She did say that my stomach could be swollen so it might take some time to heal
I asked her for a referral for a barium swallow but she said I didn't need it :S I think I will go ask my doctor and he might give me a referal just for some piece of mind.

Has anyone else experienced this? The pain is like cramps under my breasts

My band is giving me hell :(

Really miserable right now
After my fill on Wednesday I was fine all day thursday
I start eating soft foods Friday and I fill horrible
Last night I could not sleep
I had this lump in my throat and was throwing up bile
I don't know what the hell is wrong
I called the surgeon and he told me to go to the emergency room but I'm too scared to go
This has happened before
I must be too tight
I guess I'll be waiting until Monday for yet another unfill
Why is it being so problematic?!
A little nervous now
Hope I don't need more surgery :(

Tummy Ache

Yesterday was a great day food wise.
Drank lots of liquids and ate soft foods
This morning I had a bowl of mushy weet-bix and after that I just felt sick all day
Had a little bit of mince meat bolognaise sauce and got stuck
Had a yoghurt and felt sick
I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong
I hope nothing is wrong with the band :S
May go into the doctors and ask for a barium swallow
A little worried now :(
I don't want to live on liquids and soft foods for the rest of my life

Good food day

Today I've felt a lot more in control of my eating
I've been sticking to the doctors orders (for once!) and have just had liquids and soft foods today
Started my day with some chamomile tea and a protein shake
Had a couple of cuppa-soups for lunch and dinner
Lots of water and a tin of chop-chop chicken
I think it's the detox my body needed because I have been in and out of the bathroom all day haha
I'm positive that this is going to be a good week
Also went to the shops today for some retail therapy and bought three new tops and I can honestly say I felt hot :P

Fallen off the wagon

I just can't keep motivated anymore
Went for my second fill today
Surprisingly on the doctors scale I've maintained the same weight but on my scale I've gained :S
I ate out plenty this fortnight and did not pay attention to anything I ate
No restriction either

She says I now have 5cc in a 10cc band so hopefully this will give me the restriction i need
i know i shouldn't rely on my band all the time but i just cant help it!

fingers crossed this week is better

Starting Fresh.

I am back and ready to start melting this weight off again
Went for my first fill the other day and was a bit disappointed that I had gained two KG since seeing the doctor 5 months ago
She was actually really proud of me though for not gaining alot more
Little did she know that on my scale in Malta I was actually 84kg at one time and here I went up to 91kg! I'm just hoping my scales were wrong because I actually don't feel like I've gained that much weight. My clothes feel fine and noone seems to have noticed any gain :S

Either way I am here to start fresh
I have had plenty of fills and have never been bruised but this time round the area around the injection is purple! It doesn't hurt but it's a bit scary looking
I still don't have restriction so I shall be going in again in two weeks for another fill

By my birthday on January 31st I would love to be around 75kg
That's about 15kg in 18 weeks. Seems possible but I'm not going to be disappointed if I'm a few kg's away from my goal
I just want to lose this weight!
