We're Back

Well we're back from our trip and for the most part we had a great time. I had some pretty tight restriction several times, but no PBing. My girlfriend is a wonderful cook and made us some amazing meals which I was able to eat just the right amount of.(NICE) It's strange that you never know when you will have restriction---mostly when you least expect it----like when I had 1 french fries off my husbands plate before eating my bowl of roasted garlic tomato soup---and none of it would go down. The waitress even came by and asked if I was OK(embarrassing). When I get that stuck feeling I turn beet red and my eyes water---real cute!

Now that we are home and I am back on my routine --I really feel less restriction than at first---I hope it comes back more often. I'll keep you posted.

This might be it ---or close! At 9cc, I am NOW living with restriction and have lost the greater part of my hunger. What a relief after 5 months. Sometimes I can't eat at all and others I can eat the perfect amount. I hope this lasts!!!

We are leaving for a week in the morning to drive DS2 up to San Francisco for his 2nd year of college. We have friends who live in Moss Beach so we will stay in a hotel near by and just play and relax for a few days. On our way home we are going to take Hwy 101 and stay in Paso Robles for a couple of days. There's beautiful country to see and we plan on doing some wine tasting and replenishing our empty bottles with fresh olive oil and balsamic vinegars.

It will be different to go on a vacation with restriction---I'll keep you posted when we get back.

The 3rd fill

Well I just got back from seeing the PA and got my 3rd fill.
1st fill 5cc
2nd 3cc
3rd 1cc
For a total of 9cc in my 11cc Realize Band. Went very smoothly,drank the water with no problem. I'm on liquids today. I had lost 2 lbs in the last 2 months. I am just a slow loser---better than gaining!!

I hope this fill helps me lose the hunger---I'll keep you posted!

Had a great time this weekend. Went to a beautiful wedding with lots of 20-30 year olds and LOVE was in the air. Even though my feet and knee's didn't want me to, DH and I danced the night away. Wine is definitely a good pain killer and motivator---not that I need the latter.

Had a little NSV --the dress that I like to wear to weddings hasn't fit for at least 5 years and when I went to try it on a week or so ago it fit perfectly---NICE!!!!

Came out of the week with no gain or loss---can't wait until my next fill!
