Post surgery



Well, I did it...I made it through the surgery...the best experience ever. I have to say I have never had such great and caring service. And now the real work begins..my stomach is growling off and on but not as bad as it might be with the band. I can hardly wait to add protein. Now I have to really watch my emotions and learn new ways to deal with them. I have come a long way from when I first started paying attention to my emotions and eating. Now I can recognize when something is bothering me, I just have to find a new way to process the emotions other than eating. I'm going to give myself a day and then start my light walking. I sure hope the next 20 days go by fast.

awesome! so glad you got thru it and now you're on your way to a better life. This time has also given me a lot of time to reflect and focus on other things in my life. I never realized how much food consumed my every waking moment until I couldn't just eat whatever - whenever. It's a major reality check. I've found I've gotten a lot more done in the time between getting banded and now. Things that I would just let go because all I wanted to do was sit down and eat.

I can't say that the 21 days went fast....because it hasn't and I still have 6 days to go. What I can say is that it's surprisingly doable. And this coming from the person that couldn't stay on the pre-op diet until it was the absolute last minute. I have no will power when it comes to food but having the band, knowing we went through this to help ourselves - certainly helps the process.

I'm finding week 3 to be a little more difficult for me, may be that I quit drinking as much water as I was the first two weeks. But I do feel hungrier now and I really have to buckle down.

Keep us posted on your progress!

Thanks for the thoughts...I know what you mean..here I am alone and feeling the pain..but I am actually getting stuff done rather then eating..don't feel like it anyway..if only the growling stomach would stop..so the third week huh...gotta start thinking of a planned week for that one.
