No results with Doctor!

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Well, I will be getting a new fill doctor this month. I was banded on 2.23.10 and today I went in for a fill and was only put at 5.5cc's. I am not losing weight and I can eat a whole cup of food without feeling any restriction. She said I should stop at 1/2 cup anyways and just eat another 1/2 cup if I get hungry again. Well if I could just use my own will power at 1/2 cup without feeling full do she really believe I would have had this sugury???????? I mean if I had the self-control to stop at 1/2 cup I would have used the couple of thousand dollars to go shopping with instead of having the band put in. I have been working out everyday for a week now and it didn't do anything but I hope it shows by next week and I changed my routine up so maybe that will help also. I am so tired of feeling like a failure when I go into their office to weigh in.

    I have found that when I don't get enough, my body stores what I do eat. Remember: protein is fuel for fat burning. As long as you are active, you can surprisingly have a lot. I try to make sure that most of my calories are from lean proteins. Also, keep an eye on whether or not you are eating protein first!! I usually eay my meat, then any cheese, then veggies/fruits.

    Thanks Amanda, I am not sure if I get the recommended amount of protein I will start tracking that!

    I am sorry to hear you are struggling! =(
Hang in there and see what the new doctor says. Do you see a nutrition counselor too? Perhaps youre not getting enought protein? IDK, but it might be worth looking into. Keep us posted. I'll be praying for you.
