Fill Day!

Finally finally finally. I got a fill yesterday! I was so sick of having that fleeting restriction. Having been around the block a few times with this, I know that when my restriction seems to come and go it means I need a smidge more to get to my sweet spot. And here I am.

Yesterday was a big day. I had the fill in the morning, then I had a marathon exercise physiologist / nutritionist / doctor appointment at the weight control center. I saw a different nutritionist this time, and she was wonderful. Loved the exercise guy too. The main outcome of the whole thing was that I need to supplement with Vit D, and I need to get off the processed food again. The nutritionist gave me some fantastic handouts with soup recipes and lunch ideas which I forgot at the checkout desk. I left her a voicemail today -- I hope she'll interoffice mail some to me since we work for the same hospital system. Hey, it's free, right?

Anyway, how is this fill feeling? Awesome. And I'm promising myself (and you) not to test it. I'm sticking to liquids or yogurt before 11. No more gulping water. No more big bites. I know I will pay for it, so how about just not doing it in the first place? Right? Breakfast was a 1/2 scoop of protein powder in water before the gym (yes, I even exercised this morning), then a Chobani. Lunch was french onion soup with out croutons. Dinner is supposed to be baked chicken tenders with panko crust and salad or slaw on the side. Now if one of the docs hadn't brought in a cannoli pie, I'd be all set. Yes, people, of course I had a piece. I am Italian, you know. 

I also wanted to say that I'm reading your blogs, but finding it hard to comment right now. I'm reading mostly on my phone, so commenting is a pain. I'm trying to keep up with you though!

Sounds like this fill is going to be successful. I'm due for one and you just inspired me to call the doc to get it scheduled. Thanks for that!

Hugs!

Sounds like yesterday was a great day. When you get those handouts scan them in and email me a copy. I'm always looking for good information.

So I'm not the only person who has the tights in the morning. I can't eat a thing before 10:30. Crazy.

Mmm, cannoli pie. You're evil! LOL

I'd be interested in the soup recipes your NUT gives you. :) I need some good chunky soup recipes.
