Fill 'er up

Well I got my third fill on 4/16.  I had gotten up to 284 lbs when I weighed myself the morning of the fill.  Today I weighed myself and I'm down to 268!  I'm thinking the fill is doing its job.  I'm up to 4.5 cc.  The nurse looked at my restriction from the scans of my last fill and said you could drive a truck through it.  Usually they don't do more than 1 cc at a time, but she recommended I get 1.5.  I was really tight at first, and wasn't sure if they had gone a little too aggressive.  It seems to have loosened up a bit now, but I am still getting used to this more intense restriction.  Before this I didn't feel like the band had really done anything for me, but now I feel like it is doing the job it was intended to do.  Here is hoping I finally have the tool I need!


  1. I didn't realize you had so little in your band before the wonder you didn't feel like it was doing anything. If you had that little in there and you have lost the amount of weight you have (even with the regain) I think you should be super proud of yourself!!

    1. Thanks Barbie. I know I should be proud, but it is hard to do when you are in a downward spiral. I'm hoping I'm on an upswing now.

  2. I knew you are doing great... Everything you've gone through is normal. You are getting there.... I will see you in less than a week.

  3. that is great...I am at 3.5cc and don't feel much restriction. I am looking forward to my next fill!

  4. That's great! Glad you're feeling more restriction now. That will definitely help!
