After my last doctors appointment and getting my 2nd fill, it has really focused me and got me back on track. After my first 2 months of not losing any weight I was feeling very discouraged and had lots of buyers remorse with my band. On my surgery day I weighed in at 264, during the following week, I got down to 258 because I was on liquids only, but once I started adding soft foods back into my diet, I shot right back up to 264 and just have been maintaining 264 since then. Every so often I would do good, and lose a couple pounds, but then would gain the same couple pounds back if I went to dairy queen and got a small blizzard or something I knew I shouldn't have been eating. The yo-yo'ing just continued until I got my 2nd fill. The restriction has been so much better. I was upset at first because I felt jipped and I didn't think 0.7cc's would even make a difference in how much I can eat. My doctor wanted me on liquids for 2 days and then soft foods for the 3rd day. The day of my fill I was hungry most of the day, and by day 3, I can literally only get between 2-4 small spoonfuls of cottage cheese down, and I'm completely satisfied for hours.
This weekend has been amazing though. I feel like my attitude and mind set are on a different wave length and so much stronger now. I've made a conscious decision not to eat the things I know I shouldn't be eating. I've also been responsible and started adding activity back into my life. Yesterday and today, I thought I would get a good walk in so I took Bailey for a walk. My dog is so hyper-active, she runs around like a maniac 24/7 so she doesn't get many walks because I've been such a horrible/lazy mother. But since I know I need the exercise, and she loves when we go on our "walkies" I knew she wouldn't object.
Here's Bailey while we were walking around the lake
She was checking out some kids chasing birds
Overall just within the past few days since I got my fill on Thurs the scale has been moving and I've started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
From Thurs to Friday -1 lb
From Fri to Sat - 1 lb
From Sat-Sun - 6 lbs!!!!!
(6 pounds is this seriously possible??)
I've lost a total of 8lbs from Thurs-Sun can you believe that shit!? I just about fell off my scale when I hopped on it this morning. My 2nd fill was just the boost I needed and I have more motivation than ever right now!! :)
