A funny thing happened on the way to the green zone...

It's 9 days since my de-fill of .5 cc's. I have been feeling really good, having much more energy since I've been able to eat a better variety of foods. I have been able to take my medicine easily and I can drink water easily and am feeling hydrated. So....a funny thing happened yesterday. Yesterday, I woke up starving, like my stomach was eating a hole in my backbone hungry. I had a glass of milk and then later at work some oatmeal. Not even an hour later, starving again. I spent most of my day yesterday hungry and feeling like I'd made a huge mistake by getting a de-fill. Today, I woke up and it was like a normal day, I had a glass of milk, and a small breakfast at work, I'm satisfied and really feeling some good restriction today. I was all perplexed. Why is it like this? Then I remember, my band has been like this, some days I can eat freely and am really hungry, then the next day, all is right with the world. It's just that before I had my de-fill, the days of tightness would also be filled with getting stuck, throwing up and feeling very sorry for myself. So, right this moment, I'm feeling glad that I got some out. And I'm hoping that I'll still feel that way tomorrow. That band, she's a fickle one for sure!
Big Hugs,

Well at least you know the unfill was a good thing!

That darn band needs a spankin' I think. Whip her back into shape!

No question they are fickle! So glad you feel good!

Mine is always up and down..if you are still losing like you want and not hungry most of the time roll with it. I think sometimes that variability is what keeps me both sane and always a little cautious :). If I knew what I could get away with all of the time I would so be pushing it to the max!

xxxooo

Mine is up and down as well. Depends on the day, the weather, the water retention, hormones. I never realized how many things can affect this sucker. Glad the unfill is working out for you!

I like what Tina said - the variability keeping her sane and cautious .... hope the rest of your day was great !

The band is definitely tricky! Glad you got a little taken out and I hope it's the perfect level now.
