Think I Am Closing In On The Green Zone



I got my 2nd fill of 1cc this past Tuesday. I now have a total of 6cc in a 11cc band. I can definitely feel the difference now. Last night I only managed 4oz boneless pork chop and 1/2cup of of broccoli and 1/2 cup of stuffing. Well I managed to eat all of the meat and veggie but after one scoop of stuffing I was done. I had I eaten any more I would have had an episode......I think I am close maybe another small fill or two. Scale finally moved some as well.

That's awesome!! I agree, it sounds like you're differently very close. I'd stick to small fills from here out because I have feeling you could jump the Green Zone into too tight very easily because you are so close.

That is awesome! I had my 4th fill on Wednesday and I had lost 10 lbs in 4 weeks. I am at a 7cc now and the nurse told me last month I was at 4 but when the doc went to fill me this week he found I was at a 6!! I can't eat stuffing to think for me. Way to go keep it up!

Thank you everyone. I do think I am there. I am amazed how long I can go without being hungry and I have had no cravings. I can generally go 4 hours before my belly starts to gowl and when I finally do eat I find my portions are small. Tonight for dinner I had 7oz plain baked haddock and 1/2 cup of of zucchini and summer squash. I took me 30+ minutes to finish it but after I did I felt satisfied. I had a 16oz crystal lite about an hour later and I felt quite full but not to an uncomfortable level.

Thank you all very much for the support and encouragement. Carolinagirl you hang in there!! You can do this and it will only get better with time. Just try hard to be patient. I know how frustrating it can get after a month out and no movement but it will come. Once those fills start coming it will be whole new ball game. You'll see....

That is awesome. I am right there with you. I feel like I am in the green zone besides the fact that meat seems to get stuck for the first time since being banded on 3/06/12. This is definately a different journey and it is taking time to get use to the large amount of restriction that I have.
