9/6/10 – What I Ate Today

I am still pretty tight since my fill.

Breakfast: Low Carb Slimfast Shake

Lunch: Homemade tuna salad (1 single serve pouch of tuna, 1 Tbsp mayo, 1 Tbsp relish, a few chopped grapes) – I ate 1/2 of the whole thing

Snack: a few bites of tuna salad

Dinner/Snack: I eventually finished off the rest of the tuna salad. I’m not hungry but I know I need to try and get my protein in. I was very lacking in that department today.

Drink: Sugar Free Lemonade, Chai Tea

Exercise: 30 minutes of walking (1 1/3 miles)

Update Since My LapBand Fill

Well it been 2 days since I had my fill. I am still feeling pretty tight but I am able to keep down most liquids so far, although coffee seems to be the best thing I have tolerated. I have tried a few bites of smooth chicken salad, pureed vegetable soup, and ice cream but they have all came back up as a PB (productive burp). My weight this AM was 224.8 pounds – WOOHOO!!! I have lost a total of 73 pounds! I don’t even remember ever weighing this weight.

Today was a busy day. My 13 year old DS had to have surgery on his toe today. We weren’t sure til about 9am today that he was even having surgery. We didn’t leave the hospital until around 4:30 this evening. Up to that point I had just sipped on coffee and a couple of hard candies all day. I am still feeling good, tired from the busy day. I have had a couple bites that have stayed down today. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Have a great day!

What A Day!!!

I went in for my (1 month overdue) 1 year post-op visit for my lapband today. I also needed a fill today. The doctor had some trouble with my port (again) and needed to do the whole procedure twice. Last time I had a fill I had a total of 7.6cc’s in my band. Today when he started I had 7cc’s in there – I must have drank the other 0.6cc

This time he put in a total of 10cc’s. I seemed like I was ok at the time but started bringing everything back up soon after I left the office. I thought it would settle down on its own but it didn’t- got worse instead. About an hour after I left I ended up going back to his office and getting 1cc taken out. Now I am supposed to drink clear liquids the rest of the day today. I have done ok, if the liquid is warm and if I take tiny sips. I don’t feel too bad, all things considered.

On top of that we have been dealing with a health issue with one of our boys. I think my brain is starting to get tired out.

But, I am glad to know that God is in control…I refuse to worry. At the end of the day, I can rely on the fact that I serve a great God – not only does He call me friend, I am His favorite (don’t worry, you are His favorite too).

By the way, my official “doctor’s office” weight today was 230.0 lbs. WOOHOO!!!

May God bless you!

Homemade Protein Bars

I haven't tried any of these but I wanted to share some posts with homemade protein bar recipes that I found on some other blogs. Please note that these were NOT weight loss surgery websites that I found them on. I don't know how "pouch-friendly" they will be.

End of Day 4 of the 5 Day Pouch Test

I am feeling so good!!! I have much better control and not obsessing about food all day. Here's the food I've been eating. Not exactly 3 meals along with snacks; more like when I am hungry I eat as much as it takes to feel satisfied.

Coffee with creamer
Crystal Light lemonade

Yoplait yogurt
Slim fast shake
Homemade chicken salad

Friend's b-day party
Ate a Fiber One yogurt on the way to the party
Had a little fruit punch and a freezee-pop at the party
About 1/2 serving of leftover Impossible Cheeseburger Pie after I got home from the party

My weight this morning was 231.6 lbs!!!
