To fill or not to fill...
Really it is a moot point. I did get a fill today. And it was my first one in almost a year. In fact the last time I saw my doctor back in October of 2008, I had a bit of an unfill. So this is huge for me. I don't know how I am going to handle having very good restriction again. I mean I had a little before, but since I could still take normal (read really large) bites and eat things like bread and pasta I knew I was not where I needed to be. My head is nowhere near ready. I don't know what else I can do about that. I mean other than the obvious. I can't afford professional help right now. And that just sucks. But I am not going to dwell on that. I think.
So I did not gain on my vacation. That was a bonus. Especially since I ate everything under the sun. Thus prompting said fill. Oh did I mention that I got another .75cc in my band? And Dr. B calls this a non agressive fill. I have drank not even 1/4 of my protein shake. In 15 min. This is certainly a bit aggressive. But I am going to stick it out.
I am just your average wife and mother who has the not so average life of being a Lapbander. This is the good, the bad, and the ugly of the little silicone band on my stomach and my journey to beating this obesity thing.
