Good Eats

Just for fun (and to give me some different ideas) will all you fellow banders post what a typical good food day looks like for you?  Just list what you eat for meals/snacks for a day.  Thanks and I really appreciate it!

Hump day

I went for a brisk 1/2 hour walk last night! Felt good...now I just need to keep doing it!  My band doesn't feel as tight as it has been which is good.  The other night I made Amy W's "Hot Meat" recipe and was able to eat a little of that with some mashed potatos and green beans.  That's the first solid food I've been able to get down without gettnig stuck since my 1 cc fil.  On the scale front, I weighed this morning and it's going down.  I am ONE POUND away from being back to my lowest post surgery weight!

Still doing liquids/full liquids

So far today I've had no stuck issues. Yesterday morning was the worst episode I've ever had! (Got stuck eating Greek yogurt with just a little bit of bran cereal in it) I was miserable for almost 2 hours. I litterally had to leave work so that I could slime in private! Not a good feeling. I made homemade black bean soup (thanks Amy W for the recipe) Tuesday night and baiscally that, Greek yogurt and water are all I'm taking in. I want to have a couple of no stuckage days before I try to introduce soft/mushy food. Thanks Sandy Lee for the advice.  Hope that things are going well for you now too.

My weekend starts at 3PM today.....yeah me!

1 cc fill!

I saw the nurse practicioner last Wednesday, 1st time seeing her and I really liked her.  Anyway, she gave me a full cc when she filled me! Not sure but it may be too much.  I can't eat anything but soft foods right now but I think I've made my band a little aggitated.  So I am going to give it a few days to see if it calms down. I hate to have to drive an hour one way to have some taken out so I'm praying it doens't come to that.  I've lost 4 pounds since my fill. Not too shabby! Plan to go for a walk OUTSIDE when I get off work today! Looking forward to that.

Hope everyone has a good Monday!
