Angela's Lap Band Journey
March 2010 St. Thomas 212 lbs
I have never done a blog before so this is more of an experiment in...can I figure this out? I was banded on May 5, 2010 by Dr. Gerald Kirshenbaum in Aurora, Colorado. Before the pre-diet I weighed in at 212 pounds. At my pre-op appointment May 1, 2010 I was 196. This morning May 26th, I weighed in at 184, but that is what I have weighed for the last several days now. I guess I have hit my first plateau??! Uggggghhh! Hate those!
So, I am super excited to have my first fill on June 4th. I am feeling the desire to eat these last few days...not sure I can really call it hunger, but I am wanting to eat. That feeling scares me and I just want it to go away!..FOREVER!!
In fact I think I am hungry now, but I also think I have eaten plenty today so I am trying my best to ignore the feeling. I am looking for others who are going through this journey as well so that we can use each other as a support system.
I know this is going to be more difficult than I had envisioned...I just have to keep motivated. I am a self pay patient. I paid $9,875 all on my credit card...so with the monthly bill coming in, guess that should be motivation enough huh??? LOL
I know in the end it will all be well worth it. With no restriction though...these next few weeks are gonna be rough. I am going Friday to sign up for my gym membership. I think it's time to get moving now. OK, enough for now...tell me about you.
