Got on the scale today and I am down 2 lbs. Cool! Now I am only .5 lbs. away from losing 40 lbs. with my lap band surgery since early April. Wow. -40 lbs.!! Go me!!
Had some trouble getting food down yesterday. Lots of gurgling and feeling that stuff was getting a little stuck. I tried eggwhites for breakfast -- nope, would not go down. Tried string cheese, chewed really well. Nope. Tried tuna salad - but it was very dry. A few bites of whole wheat toast well done -- nope. I ended up drinking a Starbucks Vivanno shake late afternoon and it was fine. But after I was done (I think I drank too fast) I felt some of those ole left shoulder pains.... so I think my pouch was too filled with the Vivanno, but the pangs went away. Tried to eat some soft flounder - moist with lemon juice -- and it just did not go down easily. So I guess I am experiencing something that I have heard about -- a fill kicking in about a week after it first is put in! Well, for me, it was too tight so they took out 1.2ccs of the 2ccs they put in....
I will have to be creative today to get some protein in.
