I now have more fill in my band than I've had for over a year, and wow, what a difference. The kind of difference that makes a bandster cry, "So this is what it's all about!" I'm not eating much and not hungry much, I'm losing weight, I feel good, but I also feel a bit discombobulated. When I have to stop eating after only 3-4 bites of food, my mind says, "No, no, that's not enough." I feel deprived and am tempted to take another bite, but if I do that, I invariably regret it.
Last night I felt as if I must have eaten only 500 calories for the whole day, but when I logged my food, it totalled 1000 calories, with 70 grams of protein and a good assortment of healthy carbs and fats. So I have to reassure my anxious little brain that I am not starving to death!
