Day 3 of my unfill and no hunger!!!!!
So it is day three of my total unfill. Can you guess how I am feeling? I bet you can't. I have no hunger, not one hunger pang since the unfill. I cannot explain this, but this is how I felt right after my surgery. I can tell you that I am not as tight as I have been, and I have not had any issues eating. You might wonder if I am worried. The answer is yes, of course. Will I be able to stick to my measured meals, that all band recipients should adhere to? Will I not be tempted to have the things that I could not eat when I was so tight, like bread?
The sermon this morning at church by Pastor Joe was about temptation and how we should react to it. I am going to focus on my inner strength that has gotten me this far. Since I am not hungry, I am going to plan on everything that I put into my mouth. I am resolved to not just eat it because it might be handy or there.
I just made my chicken salad for work this week, as I need to stop eating the tomato soup everyday. I do believe that this is not good for my tummy. I will try my best to stay away from spicy foods for now. If this does turn out to be another ulcer then the less spicy the better. I went yesterday and bought my UNJURY protein powder to get me through. This is by far my favorite protein powder on the market. It is a high quality medical protein powder used for bariatric surgery patients with huge success. I know that in a couple of weeks when I get my fill I will be on my liquid diet after, because my surgeon practice is very strict.
After speaking with Angie and Jacquie I feel much more at ease in case something happens that I might lose my band. I know now that I have other options that I have to look at. It will not be the end of the world, just a new chapter in my journey.
I feel really good today, and no tummy issues at all today.
