One week with the unfill...

Hi there, Blogger still won't allow me to upload pictures and it's making me mad.  I don't understand!

Anyway.  I'm one week with my unfill.  I can tell you, that I feel great! It is so nice to be able to eat without pain.  I had forgotten what that was like.  I can sit up in the morning and take a pill and drink water, without issue.  I'm glad I did it.   Now, I must say that I am hungrier than I've been in a while too.  I was hungry a bunch before, because I couldn't eat anything satisfying, but then again, I wasn't really wanting to eat, because I knew what would happen. So, now I know I'll be okay when I eat and maybe that is adding to my hunger.  I think that I will need about 1/2cc fill soon, but I'm going to wait a good month before.  My experience has always been that an adjustment takes about 2-3 weeks to settle in for me, so I don't want to rush in and make an adjustment until I give it time.  I generally tighten up after a couple of weeks.  I'm really going to have to watch myself now that I can eat.  I don't want to back slide.  My weight crept up about 2 pounds from the weekend, but I'm not too worried, I just need to watch it and ease up on the vino.  Oh, if only wine wasn't so lovely.  I hope everyone is doing well.  Today is the last day of school for my youngest one.  I can't believe I will only have one left in High School.  It doesn't seem possible.  Now to get a little work done.
Have a great day!
Big Hugs,

It's been a while!

Hey Guys, I know it's been forever since I've blogged.  I've been really busy! My son and my step-daughter graduated from High School.  It was great, but a very busy time, to say the least.  There were lots of parties and events, lots of planning and now on to getting them ready for the next phase in their lives.  I'm so proud of them both, it's quite an accomplishment. 

Well, one of the last times I posted, I told you about my un-fill that didn't happen.  I finally got an un-fill.  I got 1 cc removed on Thursday and I can't tell you how good it feels to not be hurting anymore.  For the last week, things had gotten really bad, last week there were several days that I couldn't even drink water til late in the afternoon.  I was scared and grumpy.  But feeling really good now!

And, I'm still in onderland.  This morning I weighed in at 197.  I'll take it.  I think I'll be able to finally eat some protein and vegetables so I might get the scale moving in the right direction.  I wanted to post some pics from graduation, but Blogger is not being nice to me today and won't let me post them.

I hope everyone is doing well.  I will try to get pictures to post later. Happy Friday!
Big hugs,
