What a difference .5 cc's make!

I feel so much better since getting my small de-fill yesterday. I can't believe what a difference that little amount has made. I chugged water after the de-fill and it went down, it didn't just sit there in my throat and try to inch it's way back into my mouth! I ate comfortably yesterday, I had some stomach pain last night, but I really think it's because I just hadn't been eating much at all lately and my body was a little shocked. I went to bed with my water glass at my side last night and when I woke up thirsty last night, I took the tiniest sip and guess what?....it went down! Then this morning I had my coffee and I was able to take my BP medicine and my B-12 without getting stuck, without feeling sick and without tasting the bitter pill for hours. I had breakfast 2 hours ago and I'm still satisfied. And.....wait for it, that pesky extra weight that I've been calling water weight...gone this morning, back to my low! Yay! I feel good, I'm so excited that I'll be able to eat again, some real food, good solid protein. Ah...why did I wait so long? I've been so afraid to get any out, because I haven't been losing weight and I was afraid I'd really stop losing and be hungry all the time. I know it's early in the game, but already I feel better. Like so many of you pointed out, it's an ADJUSTABLE gastric band, duh! I'll keep you posted on my progress, I want to change that ticker so bad! Have a great day!
Big Hugs!

I've been there for that blessed relief to be able to drink a glass of water. Feel better soon but give the band time to do a little bit of healing. You'll do fine.
