Tomorrow I receive my first fill. This past week I was allowed to eat a normal diet. I had ribs, a hamburger with a bun, Chinese food, fish and other favorites, even a few deserts.
So far my body has not had a problem handling any food I have eaten, even popcorn. The cravings have returned, probably due to the carbs in some of the things I have been eating. I have done a fairly good job on keeping them in check.
I have kept my portions under control and have used this week to help train myself to chew, chew, chew. I still need to work on taking smaller bites. When I don’t, it makes it a lot harder and takes what seems like forever to chew with a full mouth.
I was told this past month isn’t about weight loss. I can understand why this wasn’t the focus. Even though I believe I have loss weight, my focus has been on adjusting to the change and exploring all of the resources available through the Weight Loss Surgical Center and on the internet.
I went with the Realize Adjustable Gastric Band and they have a great program called the REALIZE mySUCCESS program. Once I have my fill I will be using it on a regular basis.
I am ready for my fill and anxious to reach this part of my journey.
