I'm still able to eat as much as I want - but I need to pay attention to when I'm actually full. I go too fast and I'm not pausing and listening. I've gotten much better based on all the GREAT GREAT feedback. Every single comment from each person really make me think - I honestly believe I've had a misunderstanding about how I'm supposed to feel all this time. I really expected it to limit me - not limit myself - if that makes any sense. And the funny thing is, the reason I held off getting fills for so long is because I was afraid of the band limiting me from eating what I wanted at the time. I really thought that certain foods were something I'd have to give up forever.
I need to continue to work out just how much I'm able to eat vs. how much I should be eating. I'm sticking very closely to 1100 calories daily without much trouble, able to eat anything (yep pizza et all!), and as I'm realizing - this is the place I'm supposed to be in. I need to reel in the portion control and I've been successful at that the last few days.
The scale is stuck at 207.5 as of this morning - I'm hoping to see a drop on my weekly weigh in on Friday. I have a cold that's making me a bit fatigued - but I'll be over it soon enough!
I need to catch up on my runs - I've skipped a few the last couple of days and went to bed early. I'll be back on track tomorrow!
Thank you again everyone - I've learned so very much from you!!!
