I do miss it. I"ve wanted one so bad. But I haven't given in. I'm down 4lbs according to my scale. I've been really trying to eat better and smaller portions. I'm supposed to start the liquids tomorrow. The doctor said that I can have one meal per day. I think I'm going to use it for lunch. Origionally I thought dinner, but I think I'll be too tempted at work. At least at home I can go to bed. I may change my mind again-who knows.
I've been tracking my food, water and excersise intake. I'm still bummed about not hearing yet about the authorization, but LD (http://ldswims-journeytoembrace.blogspot.com/) was right. They wouldn't have scheduled the surgery (although tenative) if they thought I wouldn't get approved. I'm trying really hard not to forget that.
I was wondering about after surgery-did any of your doctors fill your band when they put it in? Do you feel different after surgery or not until your first fill?
