The thought crossed my mind to try to lose weight with this fill. The diet mentality is better, but still there. My weight is back to “normal”, but I’m still about ten pounds overweight. Size twelve is not a size eight, but it’s also not a size twenty-six!
Here’s a question for you. If the band fails you in the future, would you consider gastric bypass? Losing my restriction at twenty months out, made me think about how long my band will help me. I’m estimating for a long time, but will that be for life? I have definitely made behavioral changes, but I now question my ability to keep weight off without the help of my band. My answer to the bypass question? Yeah, I think I would do it if I regained lots of weight. Not sure how many pounds it would take, but I would not wait until I weighed three hundred… it would be long before that.
Food today: Raisin, date & walnut oatmeal, onion bagel w/ cream cheese & deli ham, chocolate covered pretzels, Kit Kat (pms-ing, so sue me), and some Amy’s matter paneer will be dinner. Also plan on a couple of shots of vodka the second I get home (long hours + pms = bitch). Food calories will be 1400. I don’t know how many calories are in the drink (and don’t care).
I’m not reading, I miss that- I look forward to it, it’s my usual unwind activity right before bed. I wish I could indulge myself because I’m thinking about so many of you, but once I start- it doesn’t stop quickly. I’m being selfish in writing, but I need it for me.
