OK...so it's been a little over 2 weeks since my first fill. I'm not feeling tons of restriction - at least not anything more than I felt when I had just had my surgery. My weight loss is holding steady - not lost more than I had since the surgery.
At what point do I just call and get another fill?
Next Tuesday will be 2 months banded. I think I set myself up to think that this whole process would be moving along faster. I read other blogs and think - they are losing and doing this. I see the post from Amy yesterday and think, yup, I'm going to be one of the ones this isn't going to work for. I look at WHAT I am eating and think - the amount is certainly less, but the quality is certainly not 100% there. I am walking - which I never did before. But I'm not walking everyday or even every other day. Somewhere around 2 -3 times a week. I am not drinking enough water.
I need to kick it into gear. I have had this great opportunity handed to me to get it together and do what needs to happen. I read and saw and knew it wasn't the magic pill - but somehow hoped for a little longer honeymoon period.
I weigh in later at work. I know - looking at my home scale - that I'm not down. I might be able to flush a little more out, but doubtful in 3 hours.
Until my next weigh in next week, I'd like to focus on 3 things:
Walk at least 4 times between now and then.
Drink 80 oz of water a day.
Plan meals with good choices.
You've gotta have a plan, right?? Any butt kicking and accountability is welcome. :)
I hope you are all doing well.
