Happy 3 Month Bandiversary!

It is a very happy three month bandiversary indeed! "HOUSTON, WE HAVE RESTRICTION!" Woo hoo! Yipee kai ay! Shimmy shimmy shake shake...I am now doing my trademarked touchdown dance! I love it! I love you! I love this band! I love that finally, at my three month mark since banding, I have restriction. After the scale not moving an inch in the last two and a half months, it actually moved this morning! Thank you God!
After some great encourgement from my beloved bandster buddies. I got my third fill yesterday and my life has done a 180 since then. I am not hungry between meals anymore. I can eat a small amount and feel quite satisfied. This is a dramatic departure from two days ago when I wanted to eat my shirt after work on my way to the gym. This is what this band is supposed to do. I am just so grateful this fill brought me to this point. Now I feel as though I can truly begin to lose my weight. Believe me, I prayed a lot this week. I was getting a little down about having to go three months without being able to utilize this wonderful tool. This is such a blessing to be able to carry on my journey to better, healthier life.
I will share my funny experience about my fill with you in my next blog. I must get back to work now, but not before another dance around the room. This time I'm doing the cha

Yea for restriction! I think you're ahead of me - I'm sure if I had much at three months out.
Happy Anniversary!

I feel the same way, Eliana! Isn't it wonderful? I never thought it would happen...I had some restriction, and it made controlling the quantities I eat easier, and I was sloooooowly losing weight. I wasn't binging in the same way, and I thought there was improvement...but then I got restriction last Friday! Woo hoo!
