Not yet Sweet

Apparently the restriction I felt from my last fill was just swelling again. The temporary restriction I felt after my fill has faded once again. Am I the only one with the disappearing restriction? The first few days is glorious and then it is gone. I can eat well over a cup of food again. I am hungry between meals and snacking more than I should. I am just going to have to struggle with it like this until the end of April. I will be gone on my trip the whole month of April and after my last too-tight episode, I do not want to risk another fill so close to my leaving.

I now have 7.2cc in my 10cc, that seems like alot of fill compared to some of you and maybe I am not doing something right? I did good with my exercise this week, walked an hour with my husband 3x so far this week and 5 hours at the zoo on Sunday.

  1. I can understand your frustration, but for peace of mind it might be a good idea to call your physician and mention to him/her what you're experiencing. I am sorely missing the help I was receiving from my band and look forward to regaining it. Just goes to show how much I had become dependent on it; I'm not enjoying going it on my own.

  2. I am at 7.7ccs and think I may be flirting with my sweet spot. One of my friends is having a harder time and Dr told her some people aren't at the sweet spot until 8.5 in a 10cc band.. everyone is different

  3. I'm at 5.9/10cc band. I've seen some on LBT that are over 9cc...it's like any other body measurement...we're all built differently. I'm allowed up to 1.5C of food at meals.

  5. I have to agree with Jen. I have 9.5 in an 11cc band - it took me forever, but I got there. Don't get down - if your swelling after a fill gives you good restriction, you know you're getting close.
