2 weeks and 1 day down

My new Lapband lifestyle seems to be going well. I am not especially hungry, not really having any cravings (except when I see other people eating fast food), and over all feeling pretty great. I am eating mushies and I am enjoying the change from full liquids. My favorite food is fat free refried beans with low fat cheese and sour cream. I love Mexican food so that really seems like indulging to me. I have only been eating 3 times a day and I have a feeling that I should probably be eating less at one time and more often. I have little restriction since my band is empty so I don't fill up very fast but I do stay full for quite a while. I have been religious about waiting an hour to drink before and after eating. I think this is making an impact.

I feel like I am really dedicated to this and that my surgeon and nutritionist have set me up for success. So all in all... life is delightful. And since life is so delightful, I am adding this picture of me enjoying my day at work.

Way to go! I am right with you, banded on 9/1. I feel just about the way you do - no cravings, not super hungry now that mushies have begun, but not much restriction. We have also lost about the same amount so far!

I look forward to hearing from you since we are on such similar paths!

Sounds like you are well on your way. Great! I can't wait to post my own WLS story. You give me inspiration.
