Physical, Emotional and Mental steps on my journey towards healthy living on every level

Monday, March 27, 2006

What do you know? My doctor is proud of me. I've lost 15 pounds since he saw me last, and it was eight weeks ago. He only wants me to lose 1-2 pounds a week, so he thinks it is great. I think with all that stupid exercise that it should be coming off faster than this, but if he's happy, I guess I'll just have to be happy. The sad thing is that both the doctor and the nurse say that many people come back 8 weeks later and have gained -- they find a way to trick the band (like by drinking milkshakes and stuff) so that they don't lose.

Guess I should be happy.

My first "fill" went very smoothly. It will restrict my stomach some more so that I can't eat as much. That will help me to continue to lose. The numbing shot hurt and stung, but then I couldn't even feel the needle going in to fill the band.

So, now I am more restricted, have to be on liquids or mushy foods for today and tomorrow and go to see my dietician at 12:00. Slowly but surely I guess.
