Jenn Posted April 23, 2008 Report Share Posted April 23, 2008 Hi Everyone, This Teen asked this question on the Lap Band For Teens , So I thought I would help her out and put it in the General Discussion so she can get more imput. Her Member name is Its official! Im getting banded on May 9th! I am soo excited but I am really nervous about the after surgery diet and about loosing 10lb before surgery. When i had a phone conference with the Doc i was at 226lb and then easter came and i gained weight. I was supposed to loose 10 from 226 and since i basicly started at 232 idk if i can make it to 216. I have never been good with diets. But I have been drinking slim fast 2 times a day for about two weeks and eating a dinner and my scale shows that im down to where i started; 226. So NOW i have to loose 10lb. I feel like I havnt done ne thing. Like im discurraged and dont feel like the diet is working... even tho the scale shows it has been. I also wanted to know wat some good snack foods are. Im a big snacker and so i want some kinda HEALTHY snack food. That way i feel like im ok on the diet and not depriving myself of what i want. And what are some snacks that i can have after surgry? I no i cant eat solids for like 3 weeks so i want to find ok things that i can take with me to snack on while im at school, cause drinking a slim fast in a highschool enviroment is alil hard or imbarassing if you no wat i mean. Finally, my boyfriend's senior prom is on May 31st and i get banded on May 9th. Prom is barly 4 weeks from surgry. Did any one have problems with eating for the first time after the surgry cause i know we are goin to go out for dinner and i might play it safe with a soup if we do but prom is like the first day i can ACTUALLY eat food so i want to know if ne one has suggestions on food choices. My mom suggested figuring out the resturant before prom and then looking at their menue so that i know what i can eat. does anyone else have suggestions?
