Unfill is going well

I mentioned that I went to my Dr. last week for a big unfill.  I had 3cc taken out leaving me with 3.5 in my band.  I have to say after this weekend, I can't be happier!  I had been having a lot of trouble getting in enough calories for maintenance and had resorted to eating crap with no nutritional value just to get the calories.  I really wanted good food!  I have been able to eat well and it is great.  The nurse said that my weight may waver a bit this week, but it hasn't at all.  I think I am getting the same caloric amount, but now more nutrition.  I feel that I probably was too tight for too long, but wonder if I could have lost the weight without being so tight.  I would want to eat so bad, but just give up because it was too much trouble.  I also wasn't getting in enough water or liquids as it would be close to 1.5 hours before anything would go down after eating.  I didn't have time to constantly be drinking if I wasn't trying to eat so I just didn't drink or would forget.  I am loving that I can drink again whenever I want!

I am now feeling good about everything and some people at work are asking if I would do it all again.  The answer to that is a definate YES!

I am going for an unfill today! I can't eat anything solid without feeling uncomfortable and even liquids are having a hard time going down. I hope it goes well for me!

Cool! I felt exactly the same when I got some out! It is kind of a relief to eat a little more normally without the scales going up hey?
