Getting prepared for first fill

Hi Everyone, haven't been here in a long time. Took on some more clients and got a job working outside of the home so needless to say I've been busy busy.

I wanted to say that I have found that even without a fill I do have restriction. Not sure how much but I've been learning what I can and can't eat. I finally had my first pb experience. ugggghhh it was awful (well probably not as bad as it could have been) I ate about one tablespoon of rice and my whole system just stopped. I felt it inch down my throat and took about twenty minutes to actually feel better again. So lesson learned - won't eat rice again.

I've also noticed that there is NO way even if I wanted to eat what my mind wants to - that I could possibly do it. Whenever I think I'm going to sit down and finish even a chicken breast I can only finish about half.

I can tell the difference in restriction when eating protein vs. eating processed foods. I have way more restriction in eating just protein first. So for those that don't feel they have any restriction with or without a fill - make sure you're eating your protein first thing.

I'm a little nervous about getting a fill because of the fact that I already feel some restriction but will go to my first appointment in about a week and see how things go.

I've lost about 18 lbs so far 10 pre-surgery and 8 over the course of the last month. It's slow but steady so I'm happy with it.

good for you...tell me where you by the book with the post op? for me, yeh the first 4 days but n day 5 I had few bites of things that are essentially liquid, but not consider and by the strict requirements probably dont count. (fat free pudding, yogurt) for examples. I also started creamy soups as early as I could. I drink the campbells kind and there is one the chicken mini noodle that does have some very small pasta that may be sliding down. I dont eat what left in the cup and if i feel some in my mouth I chew..chew.... chew. Do you think they will damage my success. I have lost 7-8 lbs, but dont want to mess up. The broths and juices were killing me. I sm so picky with drink that I wasn't taking in anything.

Great Job B2010

I have scheduled my first fill for the 18th of May. I am kinda reluctant about doing this because I still have restriction...some days more than others. Actually, there are days I don't really feel much restriction at all and then other days....BIG TIME restriction. I am not sure I even need one but I figure the OCC team will help me make that decision. I know what you mean about being a bit nervous having this first fill. I am the same way, not due to the "pain" which I hear it is nothing,but I don't want to come all the way back home and have something go wrong. I am staying an extra night to see. So...keep us posted as to the difference you feel with your new fill amount in the band. I hope you have a fun/safe trip.
