Well... this has been a ROUGH 3 weeks post op but in only TWO days I will be able to eat SOLID FOODS!! Girls and guys, I am SO friggen excited. Honestly, I still have wonderful restriction. I am doing fine on liquids - I do get hungry on some days and I want to chew the hell out of something... but those are few and far between because I have lost total of 14 lbs since surgery day and couldn't be happier =D> . I do not want to do ANYTHING to jeopardize that so I have been fairly strict on this post op diet. I am at 181 - ALMOST IN THE 170'S and I am so excited because I think its been at least 10 years since I was 170. Probably more than that, actually. I know I was like 150 when I was in 7th or 8th grade. I am thrilled and cannot wait to see even 179 pop up on my scale. I just wanted to share my joy with all of you wonderful bandsters (and soon to be bandsters).

Congratulations!

That's awesome - I hope I have even half the success you've had in my post-op period. I'm nervous about it, but it's so fun to see how well people like you are doing - makes me all the more motivated to make the best of it and resist the urge to chew!

Tammy and Tanya - Hi band buddies!! ><' You two ladies are doing PHENOMINAL as well! Give yourselves a pat on the back. So how is the first day of FOOD/CHEWING going? Its good for me... I had some meatballs. :lol: I was craving red meat for some reason!! woot woot! It felt so good to chew.

Thank you ALL for your support and encouragement. I am trying so hard to be motivated and stay positive (despite the fact that I am STUCK at 182 right now). I am also on my monthly cycle and feel extremely bloated so once it goes away I am hoping I will have a nice drop. To those of you who are anticipating post-op, my advice to you is to STICK IT OUT!!! Don't cheat!! Its so worth it. It is difficult the first week but after that, when you start seeing some changes/results, its MUCH easier B)
