Congrats for off.....
I'm a year post op, to be exact, today is my 1 yr bandiversary!! :-D I'm only down 60 lbs but my life couldn't be better!!
I have a couple favorites. There are many things I can not eat at all anymore. Bread is very hard... wraps, steak any dry meats, those are all rough. I don't know if you have a Sam's Club in your area but I always get the Parmesean Crusted Tilapia already made. It's almost 30 grams of protein per filet. YUMMY! Another favorite is Tablouli. Most people don't know what that is but it's absolutley delicious and sooo healthy! Just aski for it in any grocery store. Anything in a crockpot.. that all goes down east it seems. Soups, just watch the sodium content. I aim for under 1000 mg a day. For snacks I'll eat turkey perperoni w low fat or fat free cheese and triscuits. My absolute fav for snacking, which I never seem to get tired of is sliced strawberries and bananas with low fat or fat free whipped cream. you can also throw in some bluberries, grapes, rasberries... ect. Just be careful with fruits that have skin on them. (blueberries, peaches...)
Just an FYI, it will take you a while to be able to feel restriction. It took me a good 3 or 4 fills to really be able to feel anything. Heck, I'm a yr out and I still havnt reached that sweet spot. However long youre on a liquid diet remember to stay strong. That was so mentally tough for me. Stay strong and don't give up. Lap Band is not the answer to becoming skinny.. it's a change of life. You will reroute your entire life to becoming healthy!
Good Luck and remember, we are your banded family!
<3 Lots of Love and Prayers!
