0.3mL, so tiny... yet so effective!

I now have 8.8mL in my band after visiting the doctor yesterday for another fill. I lost 2.2kg since I last had my fill, which was 5 weeks ago. The doctor was happy with my progress and said that he wants me to lose 500g /week which is what I'm doing right now... I still want it all to happen yesterday!!

So, I've got an additional 0.3mL in my band, and it's made a big difference. I was on liquids yesterday, and I made some potato and leek soup for dinner last night which took me aaaaaaaages to get through. Today is more of the same... perhaps I'll attempt some solids this afternoon... but for now, I'm happy and constantly full with small amounts of food. That's the whole point of the band right??

Hi Erica!

Great to hear your doing good girl :) I cant wait to get to the stage where you are in regards to that "sweet spot"

I now have 7.5mls in my band, and yet can still eat IMO too much food.

For example I can still eat a toasted sandwich! and yet, I am having to relearn how to drink, because now I cant guzzle it down.

Looking forward to seeing how you get on :)
