Yesterday I had fill #5 and this came one week after fill #4. After fill #4 I had my first feeling of restriction and reduced hunger. It was very short lived however! :( I seem like I can go much longer between meals than pre-banding and it takes way less volume of food to satisfy me, but I knew I was still consuming too much, too fast without any "hang ups" so I did another fill. I think I am very very close.
Being recently laid off (one week) I have been trying to be very aware of grazing or depression eating and have been doing well. I will give myself a B+ I started the couch to 5k training program. I never, ever, ever, ever thought about running. EVER! But on one of my power walks a week or so ago I just broke out into a run, like out of nowhere, like for no reason...no bear was chasing me, no cougar in sight, I hadn't left the kettle on.... I just started running. Okay, to be honest it was for maybe, maybe 2 minutes and I was gasping for air and felt like my legs would fall off... but there was something very empowering about it and I have kept it up since, increasing my time and distance each attempt. WTF? running?
Not much of a blog today...just trying to settle in to a new groove with the whole being home thing. Think I will put a pot of soup on and watch the rain fall.
