It's true what they say...
I am finding out that the weather actually DOES impact my restriction!
My first 'stuck' episode occured on the morning of my first post-op visit. That was a day that the temps were going to hit the mid-80's, with a pretty high humidity on top of it.
This past Tuesday, I had the issue with being stuck and actually having a PB. The weather that day? Warm and HUMID with impending rain.
As I type this, I realize that as I'm drinking some iced tea (don't shoot me--I needed it because of Aunt Flow combined with bariatric pressure headache), and it's going down S.L.O.W.L.Y. My protien shake also went down pretty slow this morning, but I chalked it up to the 'tighter in the morning' syndrom.
The weather today? Right now, it's been raining off and on, and highs are slated to hit the mid-70's before we get torrential thunderstorms this afternoon and temps dip back into the 50's tonight. And, according to my hair, its EXTREMELY humid today--which makes it feel alot warmer than it is.
I should have guessed by merit of suffering from Barometric pressure headaches that the same barometric pressure would impact my band. I just didn't actually EXPECT it to be happening so soon--with so little restriction in my band.
I'm deffinitely working hard to make the right changes and choices so that I avoid the stuck/PB issues that I've experienced. Now that I know what causes them, I know how to avoid them. I'll just be more diligent when the weather looks like it will be anything other than ideal!
