Wow it finally worked. Well here I am on day 28 and the last three days are going to be the hardest I think. I have had very few episodes where I have felt these cravings. Maybe it's because I have been planning some things to eat once I start back on solids. I think if it was not for my band and not wanting to go against the advice I was given, I would be trying to eat now. I am still doing protein shakes, soup,smoothies and water. I now weigh 307lbs down from 353lbs pre-op. I feel ok but, my e
