    A New New Dawn got a reaction from ♥LovetheNewMe♥ in Keeping It Real!   
    Di, what a beautiful tribute to your mother and I always appreciate you keeping it real. I haven't been on here much these days and didn't see your post earlier.
    You are an inspiration and a great friend. I appreciate that you are encouraging and not afraid to keep it real. This journey isn't easy but you are proof that through trials and tribulations, successes and failures, it can be done!!!
    The picture is lovely and I am so happy you and your family were able to truly celebrate the holiday. <3

    Thankfully, you have someone to help you with the aftercare. You will do great. Just heed your surgeon's orders and it should all go well. I was amazed how well I felt after surgery. The only real discomfort I had was getting up and down from a chair from the incision. But the rest was easy peasy for me! Please let us know how it went. Very excited for you!

    I miss that at times too. I have been out with family as they are "chowing down" and I kind of missed being able to enjoy a hearty/hefty meal. My smaller belly doesn't miss it though.

    I agree Terry and I think most of us have that problem. I eat every two hours only because my blood sugar drops. Maybe it would help if you did the six small meals every two hours instead of three meals. I know it makes a difference in how I feel. Hate that blood sugar dropping feeling.

    Hi Terry,
    Just got off the phone with my hubby a little while ago, and you know he said the same thing to me. "I miss eating".
    I can understand that, but in the same breath we are both grateful for the band restriction.

    Kime, it is so easy to fall back into our old ways and into our comfort zone. Here are a few suggestions from someone who works a lot of long hours. Plan... Planning snacks and meals is key to being successful and staying on track. Yes it takes time and energy to get this started but it pays off in the long run and than you are not tempted to migrate to those comfort foods and allowing your head hunger to rule you again. On your days off take the time to sit down and plan some meals that will allow you to take the left overs for lunch the next day. Make yourself some healthy snacks and place them in snack bags in a container and keep in the cabnet or fridge. I keep my protein bars in the freezer, this forces me to eat them slowly and take the time to enjoy them. I place my nuts or chocolate in individual bags that are my serving size. I never trust my self to know when to stop eating because honestly who sees it but me and if no one sees it it does'nt count RIGHT. That was my old way of thinking and it is so easy for me to go back there if I don't stay focused. I like snacking as much as the next person so I plan. I have also found that if I allow myself to eat Pizza or a pasta dish I am soooo hungry in a very short period of time and this makes it hard. I work hard to eliminate carbs at night and focus more on protein and green veggies for nights. I always try to save some calories for night time because when I watch TV I want a snack some nights and I figure planned snacks are better than just eating anything and everything in site. My last comment is don't give up on your self, you have done a good job of losing weight and will continue to lose. Stress is unfortunately part of our daily lives and there will always be something that triggers us to eat or graze.
    Good luck and I know you can do this and reach your personal goal.

    You look amazing with your wonderful smile and great looking husband. Knowing that it took you 2 years to get to goal just made my day. Thank you. I have been around the same weight for 3-6 months (lost count) and feel like a failure. Now I don't. I am 13 months banded and thought it would take 1 1/2-2 years so I guess that is right.
    Keep in touch with us we all need encouraging words.

    Really it's a piece of diet cake. My daughter and nurse said " you look pretty good for someone who has just come out of surgery".
    You don't get those terrible gas pains like with the LB.
    Relax, you'll do great.
