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!
