Well, I was too tight after my gallbladder surgery and after getting 1cc removed from the band in January all seemed well until I started gaining weight. I gained 10 pounds in 2 weeks so I figured I was too loose at this point. I went in to the doctor and they put .5cc back in my band and all was well again for about a month. I started slowly losing what I had gained and I seemed to be in that sweet spot and then bam! I was once again unable to eat or even drink water. I thought maybe it was sinus issues again but after a week and using ice chips to keep some water in me I called it quits on trying to wait it out. I went back into the doctor and they removed the .5 cc. I decided I will just have to make it work by using my fitness app to track my food intake and by going back to band basics even harder. I figure that with the first unfill I was just so excited to be able to eat more than juice that I went crazy and that was the gain so I won't let that happen again. It has been about a month since the unfill and I have even lost 2 more pounds so I guess I am in a great spot right now. I have no idea why after over a year at 6.5cc my band decided to shut but I guess that is why we have doctors to adjust our fills.
About my fitness pal....... I have a love hate relationship with that site. I love how easy it is to track what goes in my mouth but I hate that is shows me just how much snacking I do between meals. After about a week I realized that most of my food intake is not even meals! How crazy is that! I really am hoping that this fill is the sweet spot for now and that I don't have anymore crazy episodes of no food and water. Wish me luck!
