I am pleased to report no reflux problems last night.
I still find it difficult to believe that such a teeny tiny fill/unfill can have such a drastic effect. Yesterday for the first time in months, I was able to gulp bottles of water, OMG I missed being able to drink water that way. For the last few months with good restriction, I would have to sip my water, then wait for it to gurgle down before taking another sip.
I also had a wonderful NSV today. I went shopping with my daughter and after paying with a credit card the saleslady asked to see my drivers license. She looked at the picture and said "Oh MY! You don't even look like this at all anymore, you lost a lot of weight!" It really felt good that a stranger would notice my weightloss YAY!
