still wondering

I am almost a month into this adventure and I am still wondering if I did the right thing. I get my first fill the end of next week. I hope that helps change my perspective.  I think I am just frustrated because I spent the last week in the throws of a pms gnash. I wanted to eat 24/7.  I made some discoveries... I can eat anything and as much as I want with no ill effects at this point. Not a good discovery..  I refuse to get on the scale because I don't want to know what damage I inflicted. Yes I know I am a coward but I also know what I can handle at this point. So did I make the right choice? I don't know. Ten days ago I was feeling good about all this.... now not so much.


  1. I was in the same place before my first fill. I could eat whatever and any amount I wanted. After my first fill I did notice some restriction but I was still able to eat anything just not as much. After 6 weeks I went and had my second fill and it made a big difference. I now have a pretty good restriction, I don't think I am at the sweet spot yet but i am close. Good luck and don't let the pre fill crap get you down.

  2. You did the right thing...it is a marathon and not a sprint. Be patient and don't give up...you can do it...the band is such a good, proactive step toward good health...Personally I have no regrets.

  3. Listen to the advice above and dont give up. I'm sure it takes some getting used to and getting used to eating better. Remember the band wont make the decisions of what you will eat so you still have to make smart choices.

  4. You will when you're out of bandster hell! I agree with Rachel and tag, you just have to keep plugging away. :) Try weighing, you might surprise yourself!
