Accountability is the reason for this blog. I am going to use this space as a journal for eating, exercising and recording vairous points of my Lap Band journey.
I was banded on October 20, 2009 and have lost a total of 14 pounds at this point. My doctor seems really happy with this, which make me happy.
The two week clear liquid stage is almost over, I will be moving onto mushies tomorrow. This makes me extremely happy as the clear liquids that I have consumed over the last two weeks were basically water, SF ice pops and of course my protein shakes.
During the mushie stage I am only allowed a total of 4 tbs of food three times a day. Wow, that's sounds like so little! I have been instructed to continue my protein shakes three times a day as well.
I love to cook, it is a great stress reliever for me and as you can imagine I have not been cooking too much lately. Tonight I will be making some fresh salsa to have with my FF refried beans and low fat colby jack cheese tomorrow for lunch. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I will also be making a soup tonight that purees quite nicely.
Well, that's all for now!
