Need to Rededicate My Efforts

So, I went ahead and had a mini unfill.  Dawn removed .1cc.  When she showed me what it looked like it was miniscule!  I really didn't see how that little bit could solve my sliming problems but voila! it did!!!!  Yesterday is the first time since early Dec. when I haven't PB'd or slimed once.  It is amazing what a small adjustment can do.  It has only been a couple of days, but I can't say I feel any increased hunger.  As a matter of fact, because I was able to eat more solidish food (had a fish burger made with tilapia and shrimp yesterday, no bun) and not slime I felt more satisfied and did not feel the need to supplement my food intake with sliders.  Today I have a renewed sense of hope that I can make this tool work for me and not against me.  It is wonderful to not feel as though I am warring with my body.
Thank you to everyone that provided input on my last post.  I really did think about everything you had to say and do feel like I have made the right decision for my body.  I do believe it is just as counter-productive to be over-filled as it is to be under-filled.  I am not sitting with 5.5 ccs in my 10 cc band.  This feels right for now.  Let's hope I can build on this momentum and get the scale moving again.
In an effort to become completely honest with myself about my food consumption and take responsibility for eating healthier and in a "band appropriate" way, I am going to log what I eat every day here.  I am also going to log my physical activity because it is important to both my physical and mental well being to move my body every day.

I'm hoping I get the same results next's been about a month & any solid foods make me slime, sometimes even things like yogurt. It's hell right now! You gotta do what is right for your body!

What a great entry! I hate being to full for sure. Most important thing is that you feel better.

So glad you got that tiny unfill, sounds perfect now. I'm sure I told you, after my overfill/unfill episode, I was left with just .05 ccs and the difference is incredible! Teeny little drop!

You will be losing for sure with that menu and exercise! Nice job!

Gen said...

I mean I was left with a total fill of .05 ccs. I don't even remember what my total is, but its up there - 7.6 or something....
