One of the best parts of having contracted “sick days” is the language thereof. Today I had the whole day off for an appointment that was scheduled for 2:30. What did I do in my free time? Went to the gym of course, and tried to burn off the Tostitos and cheese dip I ate the night before. These mini “last suppers” happen before a fill because as each one changes your tolerance levels just a bit, you never know what will go down easy anymore. Also after a fill there is a dip in weight loss because of the liquid diet requirement, so having a little indulgence is okay.
The whole past week I have been trying to decide if I was going to get an adjustment today at my appointment. I have pretty decent restriction at this point, I’m eating my normal diet foods, I’m getting full after a serving, I’m making good choices. But….there was that slice of Sbarro pizza over spring break. And also the aforementioned fish sandwich from McD’s a week ago….so….I decided yes I did want a fill. Also, my next appointment falls right before Disney and I didn’t want to be filled right before in case the numbers were off. At least if I were too full this time, I would have time to get loosened if I needed to.

The surgeon did give me the fill. Another ½ cc puts me at a total of 4. Said he was jealous I had only 9 weeks left of school since he would like to hike and bike ride through the mountains all summer. What a lovely thought….
