Hey all!! Hope you all are doing great!!! I am!! Went to my follow-up appointments with my nutritionist and surgeon. Both were happy with my 17lb progress!! I am on a high protein(60-80gm a day)diet for mow. I will get my first fill around May 21st, they just have to figure out when they can squeeze me in the schedule since my surgeon will be doing it!! He likes for you to eat solids for a few weeks to make sure you can get them down. I can, which kind of scared me at first, but I am still not having any tummy growling at all or sliming episodes! BUT.... if I eat to fast or overeat I will get an awful pain in my side, around where my stomach lives and I am miserable for an hour or so!!! Gotta chew, chew, chew, and eat slowwwww!!! Yesterday I went back down to my extra-large scrubs at work!!! Happy me!!! Also, I put on a pair of old navy capris I had when I met my husband and weighed less, and they fit!!!! So, I officially have NO REGRETS ABOUT LAP BAND SURGERY!!!! If I can be of help to anyone, let me know!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!
