I wish 6m would fly by!



Recommended Posts

I am about to start on my 3rd month of the supervised diet and I wish it would hurry up I'm so ready to get banded!! Although I will say I'm learning a lot about restriction.

I was the same way....when I first started, I thought 6 months would be like 6 years! But honestly, they flew by and lo and behold, I was having my surgery.

Take the time to take all necessary steps to get mentally and physically ready. Start making changes in your eating habits, and read up, ask questions, etc.

I stopped drinking Diet Coke during my 1st month, I took a few cooking lessons during the next 2 months, so I could "learn" to cook healthy. I made myself try new foods like: couscous and quinoa. I started drinking almond milk, and the list goes on :)

Hang in there and enjoy the journey! Six months will be here sooner than you think!

Glad to have you here!

My last appointment is June14! Maybe we all can stay in touch and with each other :) I'm trying to stay motivated but there are not any great educational classes in the area.

As much as we all want to hurry things up, this 6 months is a great time to really get your head in the game, work on new habits, and get prepared. It will make the world of difference after you are banded. I wish I would have done more work and lifestyle modifications pre-banding as I was in for a big awakening post-banding.

nonetheless, it's all worth while.

I notice that everyone is having their last appointment on their 6m, did you not have to technically go 7m to the nutritionalist?

My last appointment is technically an extra appointment. (3 month supervised diet- 4 nutrition appointments)

The steps prior to being banded is very important. During this time you are learning better habits, getting use to exercising, getting control of your cravings, and learning to eat slower. Because if you don't, those old habits can follow you after your band and become a problem to your dreams of becoming lean, thinn, and fit. Your patience will reward you.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
