Not SO hungry

Well I'm happy to say at 10 days out and on soft foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt, and what not I'm not nearly as hungry as I was 5 days ago. I went to see my surgeon on Wednesday and got weighed I was so very excited to have lost 8 pounds and I was ECSTATIC to be out of the 270s and into the 260s. That is my new mini goal to just go 10 pounds at a time. My second goal is to get to 199 and from there I would LOVE to be at 140/150. My next appointment will be on October 26th and I will get my first fill, I'm very excited. I have been following my doctors guidelines and drinking an Unjury drink 3 times a day (I try to drink them before meal times as it helps fill me up). I'm also eating between 1/2 to 1 cup of food at each meal mostly my meals have been on the lower end towards a 1/2 cup.

I think starting out with soft food really is a good idea I found that sometimes I don't even get 2 chews in before I'm ready to swallow and I know that could cause me some pain with other foods.

I have been using the lapband website to log my food, weight, and activities (so far I've only logged 1 walk but I am still healing). I really like the tools on the site it reminds me a lot of the weight watchers online site that I really liked to use. Speaking of Weight Watchers I just dug out an old WW cookbook that I'm excited to cook from once I can eat all types of foods again.

As a proud card carrying couch potato I'm also very excited up the new fall TV shows!
