Weigh-In Wednesday... 56.2 pounds down & progress picture

It has been 5 days since my last weigh-in post, and I have lost 1.2 pounds.  That brings the total to 56.2 pounds.  We're coming up on my 3 month bandiversary next week and I would love to hit 60 pounds by then, but it isn't likely.

I do have a fill scheduled for tomorrow, but I'm contemplating cancelling it.  I was originally scheduled to have my fill on December 21.  That was the only appointment they had available for me at the hospital nearest me, but since it would be 4 weeks and 2 days after my last fill, I was just sure I wouldn't make it.  I'd starve to death by then, lol.  I have been having adjustments every 2 weeks because my surgeon is so conservative about them.  But on my last adjustment, the day before Thanksgiving, my surgeon's PA did the fill and she agreed to make it more agressive.  At the last appointment I had 4.2 cc's in a 10 cc band.  Prior adjustments were around 3 cc's. 

So last week, I started to feel like I was losing restriction and decided I would drive 30 minutes extra for an early adjustment at my surgeon's other practice and rescheduled for tomorrow.  Unfortunately, maybe I just felt less restriction because I was eating junk with my family here.  Yesterday, I went to have sushi with a friend for lunch.  I took all the rice off of my sushi (trust me, it was quite a sight to see) and still had trouble eating.  Last night, I had my 3rd date with the same guy, and could only eat a few bites of chicken.  Then this morning, I made my breakfast- one egg and one piece of bacon... while I was cooking breakfast, the smell of the food repulsed me, but I tried to eat anyway.  I was done after 2 bites.

I think I'll go into the doctor anyway just because they haven't weighed me since 2 weeks post-op and I'd like to discuss my progress.  We'll see if I end up with a fill.

Here's a progress pic so far:
The bikini photo was taken the day before surgery.  The pajama picture was taken Sunday.  Where has my butt gone? lol
