Is it fill time? and other news.

Just when I had given up on job 1, I got a letter in the post asking me for an interview on Wednesday. Keeping my fingers crossed for the other two though. One interview does not a new job guarantee.

I went to The Making of Harry Potter studio tour yesterday with my wonderful mummy and 2 of my good friends.

Being a total idiot, I forgot to bring my camera. My friends took tons and said I could have copies but since they haven't emailed them yet, I can't show you. It was incredible though. I am a HUGE HP fan. Devoted as I am to the books, I enjoyed the films and really loved seeing all the details that they used to make them come to alive. The tour is supposed to take about 3 hours. We were there for 5 1/2! We took in everything we could. It was incredible. Anyone in the area, who likes HP, should go and if you want company, email me. I would be delighted to go again.

I have been wondering of late whether or not I could do with some tightening. I don't want to be too tight because I know that is counter productive. At last fill I had 7.8 ml in my 10 ml band. That was back in March and I was quite tight post that fill. Could I have lost some? I still eat slowly. I still chew like there is no tomorrow and sometimes I can't eat very much. Other times, I can eat loads!!! Friday night I had the best part of 2 fajitas. Last night, when we go back late from the tour (8.45 pm) I was ravenous and ate 1/2 a chip shop portion of chips and 2 battered sausages! Yes, pre band, it would have been so much more but it was enough to scare me. Today I have had 2 pancakes (big French ones not little American buttermilk ones), 3 ryvita crackers, and a medium sized jacket potato with beans and cheese. Not too bad but when you throw in it is 3 pm and I am already considering what to have for dinner tonight ... So I can see you all giving quizical looks at the screen, why not have a fill? You  must be crazy, packing all that away means you clearly need more restriction but I do sometimes get stuck and of late what I get stuck on mostly is ... milk. Yes, milk. That white, creamy liquid. The white stuff as the TV adverts used to say. Too cold? Too big gulps? Who knows but it just makes me think ... should I be any tighter?

Opinions please.

I don't know being too tight seems misery to me, I'd rather lose a few each month and be happy rather than lose alot but be miserable.

I'm in exactly the same position as you! And I also ate two battered sausages and some chips the other day - weird. But then I also get stuck sometimes and was really tight after my last fill all the way back in February. I'm also scared that if I'm too tight I'll stop eating good solid food and resort to sliders. I suppose we need to remember we got the adjustable gastric band and we should use that function. Love x

Time for what I call the "fill test." Actually measure out what you eat for a few days and keep track of how long after you eat, you feel hungry. So, allow yourself 1 - 1 1/2 cup of food and if you're hungry less than 3 hours later, you could use a tweak. :)
