LOST: Restriction

If found please return to the Canadian girl living in Stowe complaining about understanding Fahrenheit temperatures.

Hi all,

So I am living a scale-less life and it is infuriating me enough to get into my dreams! I'm trying one week without daily weigh-ins, just to see how it goes... And not so well.

Know what's not so great either? My restriction is COMPLETELY M.I.A. It's been months since my last fill, so this isn't unheard of or cause for concern, just a big pain.

For example, I ate Mac and Cheese yesterday. I cannot eat pasta. Except apparently now I can. I also can't eat pizza - but I ate a piece, crust and all. I'm not getting and staying full... I want back in the green zone!

Good news is I have a fill scheduled for Jan 5th or something... Hopefully I can get to the 180s by then by willpower and exercise.

We had our work X-Mas party on Wednesday, and I ended up wearing a dress we found semi last minute. Looking at pics I wish I had gone down a size, but it was a lot of fun, and I like some of the pics, even though I feel like it didn't show off my body that well.

Looks like the party was fun and the dress is lovely... sorry to hear about your MIA restriction. Hang in there and remember your other rules of getting full: don't drink while you eat, protein first, chew alot, put your fork down between bites.
Thanks for the comment on my blog about me not having the band yet and being extra hungry during pre-op. That's the reason this is a very short period before surgery-- I am doing it on willpower and guts alone, as we all know, that doesn't work too great in the long haul.

Anyhow: hang in there until your fill and also, maybe try a few tricks to bring the restriction back? Like liquids for 1 day? (the 5 day pouch test or whatever?)

Just my thoughts... cheers, Vanessa

i had lost restriction with my band also. i thought i had a slip or something else was wrong. then i got a fill. it was glorious to get that feeling back again. i was full after a half cup and stayed full for hours. it was just like starting over again and made me appreciated it all the more the second time around. you're doing great keep it up!

Now that I am totally in the Green Zone, I can imagine how upsetting it would be to lose it! Can you move your fill up? Or just tough it out, right?

Your dress is awesome, and love your hair at the party!

Drag that fill forward if you can, girl!!! I was where you were, the green zone and then alas.. nada.. it nicked off.. but after my last small fill.. only .25 of a cc it took about a week and this last week? Well, I am back again. I totally sympathise with the frustration of losing the bloody thing.. so go gettem.. (It?? lol)

You look just beautiful. Love the pretty dress and looks like you had a ball. You're out there living life.. with a new bod to match. xxx

You look great and that dress looks fab on you !!!

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane said...

I don't know if I have had a chance to comment back to you after your nice words on my blog....so thank you! I have been so busy with exams that I don't know what I have or haven't done. I know that you are in the same boat so I am hoping that you are kicking butt and taking names! Anyway I loved your comment about the temp. My School BFF is Canadian as well and she never knows what the temp is either!
