Today was my first fill. Yippie cause I was starting to have real hunger issues last few days.
I had 3 cc by the time I left the doctors office.First she filled me to 4 then when nothing passed backed out of it until she settled for a 3. Hope this goes well. Watching the process of liquid pass slowly really gives you perspective on your lap band as a tool. I have to chew like never before after watching how liquid has a hard time passng.
They also have put me on a strict diet in my opinion.
Not so much counting calories but actually telling me what to eat and when.
Breakfast: either two eggs cooked with a little olive oil or pam or my Atkins bar :)
Lunch: Salad w/protein. She said no dressing except a little olive oil. I talked her into a little spritx of like rasberry vinegar or cider vinegar also.
Dinner: Protein and a vegetable.
Snacks: 1/4 c. almonds or piece of fruit.
Seems pretty hardcore :) Im already doing that but I guess being told what to do. I am rebellious and I shouldnt be.
Some interesting things was watchig my pouch expand when the fluid wouldt pass.
That was pretty awesome. Just like filliig a balloon with air.
What I hate is the liquid diet but it is necessary and useful.
Boy am I glad I had a mini omelette for breakfast :P
