Fill #1

Ok so that wasn't so bad!! The needle was freakin huge but it didnt hurt.  Today and tomorrow is liquids and then back to soft foods.  I have a Realize 11c band and they put in 5cc of fluid.  I don't feel very constricted but I haven't been that hungry either.  I was expecting to not be able to drink big sips of water but I have been fine.  Just ate a can of tomato soup and I have been drinking V8 splash all day, watered down.  I told him I was tired a lot but he thinks it is because of my blood pressure medicine so I am going to my primary and Dr Boone suggested cutting the dose in 1/2.  WOO HOO  maybe I can get off some of these medicines once I have lost enough weight. 

I had to buy my B12, Calcium and 1 a day vitamins.  Man they are expensive.  I left the Calcium on the counter because I wasn't sure how I was supposed to take it, it looks like a big alkaseltzer?  My sweet husband puts all my medicines out in the morning because I get busy and forget to take them.  He was happy with my 17 lbs in the first month.  I want to lose 2 lbs a week, being on this liquid diet should help LOL.  Thank you to my friend Tressa, called to check up on me after my fill.  Wish she lived closer I would be much more motivated to excercise.  My husband is way too busy so it is up to myself to get my butt in gear.  Obviously I am not very good at self motivation or I would not be this overweight! 

Well heres to a good month and hopefully many more to come!! 


  1. That is so sweet your hubby helps with the vitamins.
