Yet another fill!

Jul 10, 2010

I went in because I was not losing but gaining a little bit and thought maybe, just maybe I needed an slight unfill in April.  It had been over a year since my last fill and it just seemed like I was having too many slightly stuck episodes and giving myself permission to eat slider foods because of it.   Dr. Kam is now in his new office space- man is it ever nice!!  Anyway, he kind of scolded me since it had been too long since my  last appointment he said.  He checked my level which had been 7.1cc last March and it was down to about 6.  I must admit, I was worried!!  How could I be thinking I might need a slight unfill when I was over 1 cc down!!  Had my band slipped!!!!  After talking to me he assured me he didn't think I had a slip.  Just had normal evaporation and gradual loss of some restriction.  I still had some restriction but it was so gradual a loss I didn't really notice and over time had started to eat bigger bites/more food- thus the sight stuck episodes-  which then lead to eating more and more slider foods which then lead to eating some stuff that I knew I shouldn't and that lead to a couple pounds of weight gain which then lead into this bad routine of eating maybe too big a bite or a food that was too dry then getting stuck then, well you get the idea.  So in April he just checked my level and told me to start logging my food and paying attention.  I made another appointment for this past Thursday July 8th.  On the 8th he gave me a small fill of .3 or .4cc.  I couldn't believe what a huge differenced that made!  Today was my first day on soft foods and am happy to say I am doing really well.  I had about half of a one egg omelette with about a tablespoon of low fat cheese.  It tasted so good and I had no problems with it.  I am hopeful that I will  lose this last 10-15 lbs before my 3 yr anniversary in Oct. 

I have a new netpad I'm using that is so nice to use anywhere in my house so hopefully, I well blog more than I have been.  Unil later....
