I think I have it

Restriction that is!

I have hardly eaten anything since my fill on Saturday. The scale is starting to move already (?) sitting at my lowest weight now - feeling positive, which is good. It really starts to mess with your head when that pesky scale becomes stubborn.

I struggled with tea last night - my favourite - Chicken Parma :( gave it two attempts 3 hours apart - was never going to happen :( Oh well I guess I am just going to have to learn to accept that sometimes I can eat certain things and sometimes I just can't!

I have no hunger at all. I am enjoying this feeling. I am a little gurgly, but other than that - ALL GOOD.

This weekend I felt so weird, Saturday I was feeling flat and down and that feeling kind of crept into Sunday. I met up with some local bandsters for lunch which was lovely. Cruised the local market and went for a long walk that evening. Didn't get much of the required housework done but it was nice to have a relaxing day without worrying about doing dishes or folding washing.

We all need a break from the normal day-to-day stuff every now and then! :)


  1. Oh I agree there! We all need a break from reality from time to time.....well, maybe not reality, but the every day hum drum of our lives anyway. I always loose several pounds in the first couple days after a fill, especially a good one. So happy for you!

  2. wahooo...glad the fill is working. Take it really easy and luck with the scale. I gave you an award a couple of days ago. :)


  3. Just sharing info... whenever I have a fill my doctors office has me on liquids for 48 hours. Does yours recommend that?

  4. Was it your second fill? I had my first last week and don't really feel much different yet.

  5. Hoping I feel the same way after my fill on Thursday. I've had about 5 fills and am up to 6.8 ccs in my band and still don't have good restriction.

  6. Glad to hear you're getting a break from hunger, and a fun little break from the day-to-day routine.

  7. Two cheers for restriction!! :) Hope you keep not being too hungry, I know what a blessing that is! Half of the time I have it in my mind that I'm absolutely ravenous. Then the next day I'm eating like a bird! lol I'm glad the scale is moving in the right direction! :)

  8. How did I not know about your blog? I usually manage to find all my Aussie counterparts.

    I went back and looked through your posts. You've done so well. Glad you have good restriction too, but oh, doesnt it suck when we can no longer eat our favorite food! lol
