    Why Am I Doing This?

    Yes I haven't learned how to slow down my eating and am still in my old habits. But maybe after today lesson will be learned.
  3. For the past month i have gotten off track so bad... I haven't gained any weight but I haven't lost any either. I have not exercised or eaten the way I should. Any encouraging words to help me get back on track would be greatly appreciated.. From the words of my grandma she said " you paid all that money and your not going to do a thing about it????" That has really hit me hard and come Monday morning I am getting back on track and I am going to lose the weight I not only NEED to but what I want to lose to feel good. Hope everyone has a good week and I love this site to come and read and see all of the encouraging things y'all post!!!!!

    Starving :(

    I try to constantly have a drink with me. Can I suck on sugar free stuff? Like mints or hard candy?

    Never Before!

    I was banded 6/28 and now that I am feeling better I am always thinking about what exercise I am going to do when I get home from work. I have never been the one to jump on the treadmill or ride my bike, but now I am starting to like it and fitting it into my daily routine

    Post Lap Band Diet

    walk, walk, walk!!!!! it was a lifesaver for me. There were times I was up walking at 3am, but it truly does help. Hang in there!!!!!!
  10. Hi everyone! I am about to be on this stage in my journey and I'm getting nervous. When you were at this point did you really puree your chicken to eat it? or maybe an orange? I'm so scared it's going to be like baby food ( ok thats pretty much what its going to be) but I don't know if I will be able to eat pureed chicken or ham... What did you eat? How did you get through this stage???
  11. SUGAR is my downfall and is what got me overweight in the first place. Someday in moderation I hope to have my beloved chocolate milk again and maybe a Reeses peanut butter cup!!!!!!!!!!

    Started My Diet....

    It was very hard for me too... I just had to focus on why I was doing it and that I was doing it for me and my health. I chewed a lot of sugar free gum, which helped tremendously!

    Liquid Diet=Terrifying

    It was super hard. But I knew I had to do it in order for the surgery to go on. Looking ahead at the future was a huge motivation because after the surgery I knew I would be on a road to success!

    21 And Hoping To Get The Lap Band

    I am the same way. I have tried every diet under the sun and only loose a few pounds and gain it back. I have been overweight for a few years now, with it at its highest ever. I have currently gone through the whole process with my doctor and I have heard back from my insurance and all they need is a medical clearance from my PCP. I am doing that Thursday so hopefully after that I will be on the road to surgery. Good luck to you and this journey you are about to take!!!!
