LilySlim - Weight loss

"Fat guy in a little coat!"
That's what my band feel like right now. I got a fill 10 days ago and starting on Wednesday, I started feeling super tight. I have a bit of a cold, I've read lots of posts about getting tighter with a cold. I hope that's it and that it will loosen up a bit. I've gotten sick on water twice and got stuck on my coffee yesterday. It's pretty annoying, because when I'm having trouble eating, it seams like I'm hungrier than ever. I had a slimfast for breakfast today and brought some soup for lunch to work. Yesterday I got so sick on chili and this morning already I've been sick on water. I don't like!
My scale is still in hiding and this morning, I must admit, I searched the house for it and couldn't find it. I want to weigh. I sure hope that all this tightness pays off. Something good better come of it.
I'm ready for the weekend and so ready to get caught up on my housework. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope you know how very much your comments have meant to me. We are so lucky to have each other!
Big Hugs!

heee heee... just thinking of chris farley's fat guy in a little coat makes me laugh!

Surely if your fill was 10 days ago you'd have felt tight like this before the cold? Hopefully it's just the cold and you can endure until the cold is gone.

I hope you get to feeling better! Have a great weekend and get some rest and plenty of liquids! :)

Hope that it loosens up for you soon. Shame you can't find the scale, my husband is always threatening to hide mine.

Good luck! I know it is miserable to be tight. I was great for a week after my last fill and then I had to go and get an unfill. I went about 6 days with PBing and getting stuck on everything. It's not fun. I hope it is just your cold that is making you tight, because as much as I didn't like being so tight, I REALLY didn't like giving up that fill. :(

Oh you poor thing. You sound miserable. I have had a sinus cold for weeks now and I do think the irritation tightens things up a bit. Drinking lots of hot liquids can loosen the band up a bit.

I just watched that movie Tommy Boy the other day!

Tell your hubby that you want to weigh on Saturday mornings or whatever and then he can put it back until the next week. Weighing once a week is totally reasonable and not obsessive.

Hope you feel better!

Giiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrlllllll, we have more in common than you know. I threw up my coffee this morning. And have thrown up 3 times since then. This is no fun. I'm hungry. I can't take my prescriptions. This is kinda bad. And yet I still want to try to wait it out until my next appointment to get a little taken out.

Tess, I absolutely get tighter when I have colds or allergies. Don't make any decisions on fills until your better. IMHO the cold meds that help dry our sinus also dry up the band making it less giving. I have the same problem with mucus. This is where our blogs are so helpful, next time your sick you will read back to this post and understand why your restriction is so tight, Feel better soon ;-)
