Week 1

I am a naughty girl.

So, this was my first week on solid foods.

I totally ate whatever the Hell I wanted.

Yup, that means I ate carbs.

However, compared to how I ate before surgery, I'm doing way better. I used to eat fast food twice a day, every day for the last year or so. Yeah, not anymore. I ate a Sonic hot dog the other day, but threw away the bun. Go me! :)

Yup, I'm starting to get back on track, though. Restricting my carbs to only 30g a day is hard. That's only two pieces of bread. :\

Some evil lady at work sold me a Snickers bar the other day. I took one bite, grimaced, and gave it to my boyfriend. I never thought there would be a day where I wouldn't devour a Snickers bar.

My weight hasn't changed. I'm still hovering around 250, which is expected because I'm eating normal sized portions now. I think my swelling is finally gone, so I really don't feel too much restriction anymore. However, I gave myself a nasty stomach ache today when I ate some BBQ (it was a BBQ for my birthday, which is one Tuesday!), and I ate too fast. While I still don't have restriction, I find I have to chew my food really well, still, or I get stomach pain and then all of a sudden I can't breathe. It's crazy. Taught me a lesson, though.

My vacation is next week! I'm so excited. I'm gonna need plenty of water and tons of protein to get me through the day. Not to mention a 5 Hour or two, 'cause I'm out of shape. But I'm still super excited!

  1. Hi Ashlee, I'm happy to find your blog. I will be having my LapBand done on 7/20 also at Turning Points here in San Antonio (different surgeon). You know how some magazine voted San Antonio as the "Fattest City in the World"? Well, let's change that!! Enjoy your vacation and be a good bandster!

  3. Lap Band Gal said you were a new bandster so I wanted to stop by and say "Hi". Hang in there, the first month or so is the hardest.

  5. Keep up the hard work! One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar (www.fullbar.com). Not only do their products help you lose weight, they also help you maintain your weight loss.

  6. i went from 264 the day of surgery to 250 now 2wks after surgery. and i haven't moved from there. i guess i should be happy i'm at least not gaining anything back. but i'm definitely not losing anything anymore! i can't wait for my first fill. i feel like i'm gonna eat the entire kitchen if i don't get some restriction!!!

    1. Oh man, me and you both! I can pretty much eat anything right now, and almost back to the same portions I ate before. That is no bueno.
