Re-fill on the Horizon

Thank goodness! Only two days to go til I see my surgeon and beg for a refill. Can't come soon enough, what with all the glorious Christmas food that's around, and will be around for a good couple of weeks more. I simply have no willpower, so I need the band to help where my brain fails. It's going to be odd going back to actually having 'proper' restriction. I do still have some - for instance, I struggle with sandwiches/bread, and I definitely can't eat as much as I could pre-band, but there's no doubting that I'm eating too much and getting hungry more quickly after I've eaten.

Now, it is TOTM, but I weighed a couple of days ago and had put on ANOTHER 1lb:

13st 6lbs - 188lbs - BMI 31.3
(a total loss so far of 74lbs - 20lbs to go)

The last time I weighed this much was in May - so my unfill at the end of September has undone four months of hard work prior to that - what a bummer.

Dear band, I'm really looking forward to feeling you again!


  1. I am right there with you! Fill me up, let me lose, and be back on the path I want! Coming to England next week might be the death of me.

  2. It is always helpful when our tools are in working order :o)

  3. I hope your unfill soon puts things to working order again. Hopefully there is a happy medium place that is optimal. I will put the cheesecake recipe up for trials if/when we work it out.
