Two week Update.

It's been two weeks since my band was put in place.
I feel great!

I was surprised at how long it took me to feel "normal" again.
I got tired really quickly, But that makes sense...
My body was working on healing and I wasn't getting a ton of nourishment during the liquid phase of the diet.

I started "Mushy" foods yesterday, (one day early)
You have no idea how wonderful it was to eat real food!
I had oatmeal for breakfast, half a cup and I was stuffed.
Blended tuna salad for lunch, half a cup.
and for dinner....
Homemade meatloaf and mashed potatoes! 1/3 cup potatoes and 1/4 a slice of meatloaf....
I was in heaven!! and I was stuffed!

Everyone is telling me to prepare for my weight loss to slow, stop or for me to even gain a pound or two while my body adjusts to food again and I get to go for my first fill.
We'll see.
I have been losing and gaining the same 1lb over the past three days and that is not much fun!
But I expected it, I'm excited for the weight loss to begin in earnest again after my first fill.

so far I'm down 40lbs in a little over a month!
I can't complain about that!

More soon....


  1. Whoa 40 pounds! Amazing! How much of that was post-op?

    You are doing fab.

  2. I lost 15lbs pre-op. the rest post-op :)
