Going For My 3Rd Fill Today



Recommended Posts

I have my 3rd fill today. Although my 2nd made a 7 lb impact, I am seriously looking forward to today's. I've been reading posts where the 3rd fill is where most people began losing weight significantly. I'm hoping for at least a 10 lb loss the next 4 weeks :)

I got mine done at 1pm today. He gave me 2 cc's which put me to 8 cc's but it was too much where I couldnt hi old down Water so he took out .75 cc's and I have a very good amt of restriction. so I have 7.25 cc's in total now. This is def going to force me to chew chew chew. I'm excited about the weight loss from this point on. Best of luck to the both of us :)

Went for my 3rd fill yesterday. Definitely feel more restriction but my fills are very conservative only about 1cc at a time. This is the first one that made me feel restricted from the second it was done....I will eat puree today and start on regular food tomorrow.

At 6cc in 10cc band... Wondering what this might feel like after I'm off full liquids after tomorrow. I'm kind of scared. I'm doing fine so far on full liquids. Want to be in green zone and I've got 24 pounds to goal.

Ok, so I was on liquids for the remainder of yesterday after my fill. Today I ate a small Breakfast and its hrs later and it still won't go down. I drink Water, tea and it comes back up. I think I may have gotten too much filling although he did take out some. Im going to try liquids for the next 3 days and see if that helps. Anyone gone through this or is going through this???

I called the Dr today and he said clear fluids the rest of the day and he will see me tmrw morning at 10am. I hope he only takes .25 or .5cc's at most. It's hard for me to keep liquids down. It takes too long,and some still comes back up after a while after my saliva accumulates. Not normal at all. The tightening starts loosening up when you're losing weight right? That's what I've been told by some ppl on here.

I'm having alot of trouble too. Drank a small coffee this morning, had a bottle of Water around noon. I tried to eat Wendys Chili and could not eat but 2 spoons & lost it. I gave up & am heading to bed. I'm going to try liquids tomorrow

Yeah...liqyids, including my saliva aren't going down quick enough so some still comes up. I wanna lose weight not become anorexic, malnutritioned or dehydrated. Going back to the Dr tomorrow morning and have him take out at least .25 cc's. Not fun at all. But, I know this happens. The worst part is I feel exhausted from throwing up and having nothing in my system to give me energy for the day. Trial and error to gain success. Keep me posted. I'll update you tomorrow morning after I get out of the Dr's office :)

Just got out of the Dr's. He took out .5cc's and I felt instant relief. However, I do feel weak since I've been on an empty stomach for 2 days. I'm drinking a glass of cold milk and it feels sooooooo good. So my 3rd filling went from being 2 to 1.25 to .75 cc's. 4 more weeks for my next fill. Looking fwd to the weight loss with this one. :)

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.
