A lot of things have changed with my mindset in the past couple of weeks regarding my lap-band and what I need to change to be more successful. I have realized that fast food should not be a regular at least once a week, I need to move more, and the drinking while eating definitely needs to stop. These are just a few of the changes I plan on making.
Yesterday, I am proud to say, I walked during my morning break at work for 15 min. While I realize this is no major feat, it is one small thing I plan on doing daily now to help make progress. My eating habits need major work. I and my husband eat out way too much. I have never been a big cook, but I need to learn. My palate also reminds me of that of a 5 year old. I don't like fish. I can't stand most veggies. Soup is not a favorite. You can see my dilemma here, right? Another thing that is hard for me is that I am not at restriction yet. I have a 10cc band and am currently at 5cc's. I do notice some discomfort if I don't chew something really well or eat too fast. And I do stay full for aprox. 5 hours. On the other hand I don't have any issues eating any specific food (bread, red meat, etc.). While I still want to enjoy these things, I don't think it should be this easy to enjoy them! I am also able to eat more than I should. To stop at 1 1/2 cups takes a lot of will power on my part. I am looking forward to my next fill on 11/17 when hopefully I will reach my "sweet spot."
p.s. And just for "New Beginnings" sake, I am going to try some fish tonight. I will let you know how it goes!
