Well, today I finally hit the 20 pound mark. This is 5 weeks and 2 days after starting my Pre Op Diet and 4 weeks 2 days after getting banded. It feels good, it feels better than good, it feels great:) However,I have seen this number before. I think until I hit the point where I am seeing NEW numbers that I have not hit (As I have gained and lost the same 30 pounds a bazillion times in the past 7 years) it will not seem real. Things feel better and fit better, but I am just so anxious for the next 20 to come off, where I can really tell, that I have a hard time celebrating this success.
I had my first fill yesterday - I came in having 3.1 in the band (From surgery). They put me at 4.7, but I could not get water down. I went to drink it and started sliming and then they took out .3 to leave me at 4.4.
It seems ok, I will tell over the next couple days if that is enough.
They did say liquids last night (Soup) but she said today to just take it easy - didn't leave me with a strict food list like I thought (I thought it would have to be 1 day liquids, 1 day mushies) but they saidto use my best judgement.
Anyway, doing well, keeping on keeping on:)
