How much is your fill?

I am going to get a fill on Monday, and I am nervous about it! I have 6.3 in a 10cc band right now. I weigh 176-178, and have been there for over two months. I sometimes get stuck, with pain in my chest and some sliming, but have never had a PB incident. I feel the band works good until about 3-4 in the afternoon, but I eat ENTIRELY too much in the evening, and if I eat slow, I think I could just eat and eat right on! (My husband works nights, and I think I eat from boredom, a lot...) I know I am not eating the way I should, so I worry that a fill might put me into a danger zone! Anyway, I would like to compare where I am with other bandsters. I know everyone is different, but would you share your fill amount? Thank you all!

My Valentine! Through Thick and Thin

Thin and Thick! (I need to work on some current pictures, now that I've lost 55 pounds!)

My valentine! Scott and I met in high school. I was the first person he asked out when he got his driver's license at 16! We got married when we were 18 years old, and we have been married for 31 years. (It's not necessary for anyone to get your calculators out, we both turned 50 in 2009!:))
Scott has been with me through thick and thin,(mostly THICK.) He always made sure that I knew he loved me, even when I gained more than 100 pounds from my weight at our wedding. We have two wonderful children and two perfect grandchildren, with one more on the way. We have been through college together, several jobs, 10 moves, hysterectomy, back surgery, lapband surgery... all on MY part, I might add. He has stood by me through everything, (and we all know it takes a lot to help a spouse through surgery). I can always count on Scott to take care of me. I love him so! Happy Valentine's Day, honey!!
