Enough is Enough

So I'm scheduled for an unfill today. I'm going to have a half cc taken out I think. I'm not getting enough protein in and I find myself relying on slider foods because good wholesome foods are too hard to eat. Whenever I try to eat something real I get stuck 1 or 2 bites in no matter how good I chew. It's ridiculous. On mother's day we had dinner at my mom's and it took me an hour and a half to eat and that was without eating the meat because I couldn't and I pb'd twice. Awhile after dinner I got some dessert and it took me all of 10 mins to get it down. UGH!! I can eat bad things sooo easy. My thought process on all this was that I knew I was a little too tight, but that I'd probably just lose weight faster and it would loosen up on it's own. NOT! Since I have to eat unhealthy things to even be able to eat, I'm not losing any faster than I was before. So why suffer?? I'm going to have a little unfil and I can't wait to start eating protein again and not get stuck on my first bite.

I found a great snack yesterday. It's a cracker made by WASA and it's light rye. It's made with 100% whole grains and has 3g fiber, zero fat and only 60 calories for 2 big crackers. They're the size of graham crackers so 2 is plenty. I just had them for breakfast with some laughing cow cheese. I was pleasantly surprised it went down nicely and was yummy to boot!

I dont have that great of a restriction but I would feel exactly the same as you and think I would lose quicker if it was tighter. My surgeon says I need to do most of the work, not the band. But hey you are new to this and we cant expect to get it right so soon. You are doing great x

I love me some crackers so thanks for the tip. Not banded yet, but I'll put it on my notes of a good thing to try.

Was this your first fill? Just curious as mine is coming up next week and I am moving the week after that...and have to find a new doctor to handle that. So I don't want to be too tight, but some restriction would be great!

I hope the little unfill makes things better. The crackers and cheese sounds yummY!

Hi. i distribute WASA in South FLA and they are coming our with brand new flatbreads. YUMMY.. They have the same of better health benefits and great flavors. They should be in any of your markets starting in June. They are launching Memorial Day.
