Weigh in Wednesday and a fill

Almost forgot to weigh in today.  Today's weight...


So close to the 90 pounds lost mark.  Hopefully by next week I will be there. I am very happy to see another nice loss this week.  

I can't remember if I've mentioned it here (I've been such a bad blogger, I think of lots of things to write about, but then almost never get here and actually write about it).  Anywhoo my new short term goal is to lose 100 pounds by my one year surgiversary.  That's on May 21st, so as of today I'm at 89.6 pounds, leaving 10.4 pounds to lose in just about 12 weeks.  Should be completely doable.

That being said I notice myself sabotaging myself more frequently.  Girl Scout cookies are the spawn of Satan!  I have noooo problem with them.  I tell myself it's ok if I have 1 or 2, and that turns into 5 or 6.  Each day!  UGH!!!!  I really need to learn self control.  When I was earlier in the process it was easier for me to stay away from "bad" foods.  Now I seem to gravitate to those.  Anyone have the same problem the farther out from surgery they are?

I had a very teeny tiny fill yesterday.  I don't think I blogged about me last fill/unfill in January. They put in .5cc and I seemed to do fine for a couple of weeks.  Then I started having some pain and heartburn during the night. Went in ASAP and had .25 taken out.  Had an upper GI the next week to make sure I didn't have any problems.  Everything was fine with the band, and the heartburn/pain went away immediately.

So that led up to yesterday when I went in to see the PA.  I've noticed that I'm getting hungry after about 3 hours.   Would like that to be longer, but conflicted as to if I should get a fill given that I had to have an unfill last month.  We decided on just a scootch of a fill, somewhere between .1 and .2cc.  Taking it easy with just full liquids yesterday and mushies today.  So far so good, but if I notice anything bad I'll go in ASAP and have some taken out.
