Well...THAT Makes Sense

So I've been walkin' around, livin' my life,  thinking I had 5cc in my band. Wrong! I had 4, and now I have 5.2 after my third fill yesterday. My surgeon did my fill yesterday and he set the record straight. Apparently the fluid they use to "prime" the band during surgery doesn't count. Say what?

But...soooooo many things make sense now. Not the least of which is that I was able to devour this whole thing at Genghis Grill on Saturday night.
And how I sometimes feel  hunger 2 and a half hours after a high protein meal.
Not that Genghis Grill bowl, though. I was good for the rest of the night after that. :)

I've been on full liquids all day today. You know the drill...Progresso Chicken Enchilada Soup, Unjury iced coffee, Chobani yogurt. And it hasn't been at all miserable.

Tomorrow I will be back on regular food and it will be interesting to see how that goes. I'm hoping this was the fill that pushed me into that elusive Green Zone. We shall see.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Yay for your third fill!! After my second, I somehow feel hungrier but I'm just now on soft foods today from being on liquids the past two days. I think I now have 4 ml in my band. Looking forward to seeing more weight loss and reading your posts :)

    1. I know exactly the feeling you are talking about! Hopefully when you start back on solids you'll be able to go for much longer.

      Thank you so much for reading. When I started my blog, I had NO idea how much it would help me. Accountability, for sure, but the best thing is all the other banders that I've "met".

      I'm looking forward to your progress too! We are on our way!
