HAHA! How's that for a lead-in?
I really do have a lump in my throat, and I hope saying this is not going to jinx it, but could it be a sign of restriction? Could it be?
Liquids are going down fine, and I get to try mushies tomorrow, so I'm guessing that will be the first test. With the real test coming Monday when I am back on regular food.
Anyone else with this symptom? A lump in the throat? Yes, I have no patience. Didn't we already discuss this?!?!
EDIT: Another suspicious symptom - burping. I am burping with every swallow. Hmmm, trying not to get my hopes up, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttttttt...
On a related note, I think the band really works because you have to go on liquids for a few days after every fill. HA! It has nothing to do with the band itself, but the liquid diet every few weeks. OK, I know this is not true, but I truly despise the liquid diet days. I am starving and cranky. Poor DH, poor kiddos. Poor me.
So, back to the fill front. I gained 3.5 lbs since my last fill. I knew I did. I just got tired of hanging on so tight. I kinda gave up. But with hope for restriction now and another appointment in 2.5 weeks already made just in case I don't have restriction, I am back on the BAND wagon, because I see light at the end of the tunnel. I may not have restriction this time (although my fingers are crossed tight), but I know the next fill would bring me at least something. I hope I can truly say the hardest part is behind me. I don't expect the future to be all smoothsailing and no work, but I'm past pre-op, surgery, post-op, and hopefully bandster hell. The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!
