Jacklynrae Posted April 7, 2008 Report Share Posted April 7, 2008 I was banded on the 3rd, Thursday and today is the first day I have really felt like myself. Of course I am not physically hungry, a popsicle seems like a huge steak dinner haha. But I can't get over the fact that even while I was sitting the airport full of gas pain and feeling miserable the breakfast sandwich my husband ate or the little pizzas being carried around by all those damn skinny people smelled remarkable. But the more I thought about it the more I realized that while this band is a tool that will change all of our lives forever perhaps this first phase of our journey could do just as much shaping. Obviously we all have an issue with food and quite frankly mine could be referred to as a best friend, always there and always delicious, but it is this relationship that had put me in this position of being overweight and unhappy. I ate just to eat, just to enjoy, and because I was bored proof from my post op food desires. The food fantasies have been getting better as I have realized that this post op diet is really a blessing in disguise, a food DETOX. Being forced to drink for 3 weeks is going to put me in the position to re evaluate the way I think and feel about food, if I am hungry (thanks to the band I won't be too often) I will enjoy ever bite and not stuff it in my face, I will really think about what I am putting in my body and how it will help me feel and fuel my body. I am excited to be on this journey and hope that not only my body will change but my mindset will change as well. My name is Jacklyn and I am a foodaholic, but hoping my 3 weeks food detox will cure my wayward ways! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
