I am in the pre-op diet phase. Yippie, that means soon I will be getting my band. Lately there have been a few posts on the forum about the pain newly banded people are in. It leaves me hoping I took off enough time for recovery. From everything I have read, I should be okay. I am hopeful I will be the "bounce back kid." I really hope that I can manage my pain well, as I have a son to come home to and care for.
The pre-op diet is going pretty good. I have very good success while I am at work. It is when I am home over the weekends that are a bit more difficult. The weather is warming up, so that will make it easier for us to get out and do things. I am planning on going to the zoo this weekend, so that will take my focus off food. I am really looking forward to breaking the foody cycle. Or at least having more managability over what I eat and how much.
I am down a few pounds! So that is awesome!
