Hi Everyone, haven't been here in a long time. Took on some more clients and got a job working outside of the home so needless to say I've been busy busy.
I wanted to say that I have found that even without a fill I do have restriction. Not sure how much but I've been learning what I can and can't eat. I finally had my first pb experience. ugggghhh it was awful (well probably not as bad as it could have been) I ate about one tablespoon of rice and my whole system just stopped. I felt it inch down my throat and took about twenty minutes to actually feel better again. So lesson learned - won't eat rice again.
I've also noticed that there is NO way even if I wanted to eat what my mind wants to - that I could possibly do it. Whenever I think I'm going to sit down and finish even a chicken breast I can only finish about half.
I can tell the difference in restriction when eating protein vs. eating processed foods. I have way more restriction in eating just protein first. So for those that don't feel they have any restriction with or without a fill - make sure you're eating your protein first thing.
I'm a little nervous about getting a fill because of the fact that I already feel some restriction but will go to my first appointment in about a week and see how things go.
I've lost about 18 lbs so far 10 pre-surgery and 8 over the course of the last month. It's slow but steady so I'm happy with it.
