3 1/2 weeks...

It is hard to believe it has been only 3 1/2 weeks since I had my LB put it- it seems like it has been a lot longer than that.
I am now down about 15 pounds which is great.
The hard thing is I have no restriction so it is so hard to make all good chioces, stay within my calories, without any "help".
I do have a fill on Wed of next week and I am so excited, I am really looking forwrd to it (well,all but the giant needle part) and looking forward to getting some help from the band the way I am supposed to:)
I do find that I am eating slower, not drinking liquids during the meals, trying to follow all the rules, but I do NOT get full, and I have yet to find a food that doesn't go down just fine! Oh well, that will all come in time I am sure.
I am doing well according to the goals I put in place before the surgery so hopefully that will continue to where I felel like you can actually see results.
It is amazing how 15 pounds at this point barely makes a difference. My pants, that were super tight, feel slighty better, my shirts are a little looser, but for the most part I feel as I look exactly the same. I can't wait to get to the point where 15 pounds makes a huge difference and a pant size:)
Soon....I am confident it will happen soon!

  1. 15 pounds is a great loss so far! I hope your fill goes well. Right before mine I could eat anything too. So far I think I feel some restriction after my fill, but am not sure if it is going to be long lasting or just temporary. Good luck, hope they give you enough to make a difference!
