Today I saw my NP for a second fill. He was saying, you seem to be losing just fine, but I had to admit to him that I had been at the same weight for a few weeks, and up till my teenager-esque drinking binge on Saturday night,
I'd been struggling to get off the same 4 pounds that I kept gaining and losing. If it weren't for binge drinking causing me not to be able to eat, I'd still be up at the same weight as when he last saw me. So... he gave me a fill. Initially I was at 3cc with my first fill and when I saw him today, he said he could give me another 3, but I winced, and he said, how about 1.5? That sounded less scary to me. So he filled me up, and here I sit at lunch with my protein shake. I feel a difference for sure. Now lets see if it will slow me down when I get back to regular food. I know I'm not supposed to rely on it to make me stop, but if I didn't need help stopping, I wouldn't have a band in the first place. Right??
