Doc Visit Results

Mostly good news. My pouch had shrunk almost down to normal. So, I did get refilled, but only .6!!! My first fill was all the way to 1.2. 2nd fill took me to too much (can't remember what it was) and was backed off to 1.4. It was only .6 because she wanted to be conservative and see if my pouch will shrink the rest of the way. That is all fine and dandy, but now it will take another $150 to get the next fill. (A little frustrating! as I would have preferred to be filled to 1.2 and continue fluids for a bit longer. Anyhoo...)

On soft foods today and then back to real food tomorrow. Have to ENSURE that no more than 3/4 cup is eaten (6 oz.) at a meal. Doctor's orders, but bandster rules anyway. The problem may be that might not keep me full because my fill is not much. I was given the permission to snack. This could be a slippery slope, so going to try to not do that unless I am desperate.

I seriously cannot believe that I am only 4 lbs from goal. I am thinking that I might lower my goal weight another 10 lbs. But honestly, if I get the additional 10 off, then I will likely add the last 6 to get to a full 100 lbs lost. Just don't know. Depends how I look.

That's it for now. I go back in another 3 weeks. Will post again then at the latest.

Glad to hear that the unfill worked. Did they know if it was from the carbonated pop? I haven't had any pop and I guess I won't even try now!
