    My first fill today!

    I get to have my first fill today! I'm quite excited, but nervous. It will give me more restriction on what I can eat and also how much I can eat. I should really start seeing some more drastic weight loss now. We leave on our cruise in 24 days, not that I'm counting, and I'm hoping I can be down another 10 pounds by then. It depends on how much they put in through the port. It should be anywhere from 1-2 cc's, so not much, but enough to make a difference. I'll definitely post later about how it went. Wish me luck!!

    I posted this educational picture of what the band looks like with the port visible. The port is near my belly button on the left side, which I have to laugh about, because that's the Port Side in nautical terms. How appropriate for the cruise. Now I'll never forget which is port side, and which is starboard. Ha ha ha.

    How did it go?

    Well, I can't tell yet. It has been 6 days, and I really feel no restriction. She put in 0.8cc of saline, so not much, but it can go as high as 4ccs. I have to wait at least 2 weeks before I can get another fill, but I don't want it to be too tight for the cruise. So I may just leave it until we get home. I had lost an additional 2 pounds, leaving me at 8.5 pounds in 6 weeks. Not bad, considering it should be about a pound a week. So far I'm feeling awesome. Although I can't see a difference yet, some people say I look better. But I can definitely feel the difference.
