I'm Very Frustrated!
I did do lots of walking in Wal*Mart. I also bought a George Foreman Grill. Looking forward to cooking some hamburgers and chicken breasts on there. Bought some snacks for Blaine and prunes for me, how fun!
Today I had a Lean Cuisine (Meatloaf and Mashed potatoes) for breakfast. Steamed veggies and Swedish Meatballs for lunch. I ate some Cheetos for a snack. Tonight we went to Gus's and I had a leg, thigh, and some potato salad and was stuffed. Next time I will definitely only have one piece. It is definitely hard adjusting to not needing so much food to make me full. I'm ready for my first fill. I'm anxious to see how it affects the amount I eat. I know right now I'm able to consume more. Hopefully I'll lose some more weight after the fill.
I was reading an article about lap band success. It stated that it can take up to five years to attain your goal weight loss. I know this is a life long process, but I need to adjust my expectations for how fast I lose weight. I started at 334 in November, 2010. I hope to weight 174 by January 2016. That's about 32 pounds a year or about 3 pounds a month. Surely I can handle that. I may need to adjust my weigh-in postings to once a month.
If you have had a lap-band or know somebody who has one, how fast did they lose their weight?
