Hunger

I am having such a hard time this week. I have been doing so good after my lap band surgery. I have not been hungry hardly any at all and then Saturday, I can not get satisfied. I am drinking the water and eating the right foods, but I think that the swelling has gone down where my band is and that is why I am having the hungry problem. I just know that I am miserable. I can eat and then an hour later, I am hungry again. I doing the protein shake and water and nothing is working. I go for my first fill on 4/26 and I will be so glad when it happens. This weekend is Easter too! I just don't know how I am going to do. Anyone that has any ideas, please let me know.
Thank you and HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Try to hang in there. My sister had it done and then gained all the weight back. Until then I did not know you could do that. It would suck to go thru all that and then gain it back.

Thank you both. I belong to another site that is just for lap banders and they told me what I am going through is very normal before my first fill of my lap band. I am still holding my ground. I am still not eating a lot. I go to my appointment today to have my first fill. Everyone tells me once I have that fill, I will feel much better, because it gives me the restriction. You are exactly right, I do not plan on going through all the pain and paying all these deductibles for nothing. I plan on losing this weight. Right now, I am battling the pain with my Fibromyalgia. It has really come back with a vengeance upon me. I have a huge knot that goes from the right side of my neck to my right shoulder. If it don't let up, I may have to go and get an injection just to release those tissues. I started back on my muscle relaxers yesterday and it has really broken my heart, because I was hoping that I would not have to take them any more, but here I am back on them. It will probably take a while before they are back in my system too. Fibromyalgia is definitely one of those demons. I know I am not as bad off as others on this site, but still the pain that goes with Fibromyalgia is debilitating at times. If I did not have so much to do at work today, I would not have came in. I will keep on doing the best I can and hang in there. Love y'all and have a great day!

i really dont understand your procedure so sorry but i know that there are other things u can try to fulfill your needs of hunger it stinks when trying to lose weight and the stuff u are eating doesnt help been there
i eat "clif" bars they are very very filling i have one at breakfast and one at lunch i may not need to lose weight but i keep a healthy diet and will not eat anything else yes a eating disorder too but dont want to go there.
