But seriously, the last 2 months, I feel like there is no longer a band in my body. Now, before you all suggest I've slipped or that I need a fill, I've been seeing my WLS PA every other week since October. My band looks perfect under fluoroscopy and I've been getting adjusted regularly and staying as tight as my PA will allow.
But here I am, able to eat much more that I feel I should. And it's not even a matter of "I can but I shouldn't because I'm not really hungry". If I eat the portion I think I should eat (about 1.5 cups), I'm still sitting there starved. And I'm eating almost strictly protein for the first cup of food.
Where has my lap band gone??
I'm glad I haven't PB'd in months, but it would also be nice if I didn't feel like I could eat a horse. I am able to eat bread now, which I never could do before. I still do not eat it, only twice have I had a bread-like substance since surgery, but both times have been recently. I am losing weight again, so I feel like I shouldn't complain, but I would really love to feel satisfied after eating the right portion of food. I've been struggling a lot with hunger lately. When I go back next Thursday, I will ask my PA to give me the most aggressive fill possible. I would rather have to see her the next day for an unfill than to keep dealing with this hunger.
