LilySlim - Weight loss

Pearl is fickle!

My band Pearl is one fickle little thing! On Saturday, she wouldn't let me eat anything, on Sunday she wouldn't let me eat until the evening, but when she did, she would have let me eat a cow! I don't get it. How can I be so tight that I can't eat and then wide open just a few hours later. That is why I'm afraid to get another fill. If I was any tighter on a tight day, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to drink, but on a loose day, I could use a little help. Any advice?

In other news, it was a busy weekend. Lot's of stuff going on and a very sick son on Saturday. All is well today, I have a busy week ahead of me and many opportunities to get off track. I really want to get focused and re-energize my weight loss efforts. So, send me some mojo vibes. Happy Monday all!
Big Hug!

Hi Tessie! That darn band - show her who is boss! lol. I say that our bands have multiple personalities, and since we can't change that, we just have to roll with it. I always find that I am tighter in the morning, so I make my evening meal the bigger one. A tight band can be a love/hate relationship. When I really love it is when I realize I am making subconscious decisions to have much smaller portions because I don't wanna deal with PBing. But then again, when the fragrance of pizza wafts into my nose, I want the whole damn thing - and end up scraping off the toppings and having to be satisfied. Our bands are just pure bitches (or are they our best friends?)!!! LOL!

Oh, to have just a bit of the restriction that you describe! I don't understand it either why we go from tighter than tight to can eat a horse! I am in the "I can eat a horse" category since my 1 cc unfill 2 weeks ago. I am now back to the amount of fill I had after fill # 1 which did zippo for me in the restriction dept.! I am going to see doc on Wed and will be begging him to give me at least .5 cc's. I should be ok with that as that would be where I was at my 2nd fill. We'll see.

I should have stayed with fill # 2 because it was similar to what you are describing. I was tight, than loose. I had fill #3 and that pushed me over the edge until I couldn't even get liquids down. Good luck with your decision on whether or not to get the fill. If you get one, just get a smidge. That is my advice.

I never have trouble with liquids but I have the same thing going on. I have been debating a fill for 2 months now because I am soooo worried that on a tight day/meal I won't be able to eat at all. I have random times of the day that I can't eat without pain and sometimes I can eat an entire buffet with no problem. It's crazy! My band is half-assin it! haha

Dude...I know so much of our journey has been similar but this is where we differ. I have YET to experience the kind of tightness that you and so many others describe. At this point I don't know wether that's good or bad.

The band can certainly be tempermental. I've been debating scheduling a fill for weeks now as some days I seem to be really tight and other days I feel wide opne. Sending good weight loss vibes your way! Have a great week.

I can so relate to this Tessie. My band has been so fickle lately too. I hope it gets better for both of us!

I still feel like I can eat too much. Weird. Its a balancing game. Maybe they can give you a very small fill?

Damn, I know what you mean. It is very hard when the band is being fickle-- can be very frustrating.
