I am starting to think restriction is similar to unicorns and leprechauns. I am pretty sure it is the fantastical thing that we all wish for but never really find. I just finished eating lunch and have found my restriction to be no different. I am hoping that if I give it a week or two it will start to tighten up. That is what happened the last time I had a fill at least.
O well, I have made it this far right. Guess I will just have to continue down the path of good eating and exercise. I can do that... right?! I told Dr. Katz yesterday, that I was starting to get impatient. He totally understood and was empathetic. I keep trying to tell myself not to be in such a hurry and that it will come in due time. Easier said than done. My current goal is to get to Onderland by February 5th. Two weeks, 5 lbs.
Now on to my rant. I regularly peruse Obesityhelp.com. They have a discussion board and forum for Lap Band patients. Well I have mentioned before how I feel pressured to eat low carb... and that board is one of the reasons. So again today I log in and see that someone has posted this long message about how the reason everyone is having trouble right now is because they are still struggling with all the carbs and sugar from the holidays. This person goes on to point out that essentially the only way to succeed at this is low carb no sugar. That is a diet. I had LB so I would not have to be on a diet. We have seen people succeed while eating carbs and sugar (Amy just pointed this out in her 1 year post). Stop carb fear mongering!
And on a final note: Happy Hump Day!
