Hello! I'm the Phatty Fatt "Fat Devil" that lives in Michelle.
Well its finally happened, its reared its Ugly Nasty Old Head, what you say, who do you say?
HUNGER AND THE FAT DEVIL
I really started feeling better all over and thru my body and mind...last Thursday, just woke up and went "hey no more pain?". Yahoo did little chicken dance to some GAGA Oh LA LA!
Back to Spin class this weekend, killed a 40 minute class really no issues. Again, I stopped myself at 40 minutes as not to push to that final high gear. Met and completed a pretty good strength training workout with Mark, it went well, although my muscles are now way back out of shape again. Which means I have to go thru dreaded "never moved your body before pain". It is dreadful, hurts to get up and down from the toilet in the worst way. But then, it feels good because you know that excercise changes your life and your shape!
Ok back to my Nasty Hungry Man the "FAT DEVIL" that lives inside my brain. Now, I am hungry again! My band restriction is no more, it is WIDE OPEN, like a gigantic hole in the sky.
As I was eating my dinner yesterday, I realized... I could continue to eat so much more. I had to stop myself at 1 cup. What to do now you ask? Well, I have to wait until 6 weeks post surgery which for me is JUNE 26TH, when I can go see DR. H for some fluid for my BAND.
Better known as: FIRST FILL!
I called and unfortunately, they understand I am hungry and have no restriction, but they are not willing to bring me in early. BOO :(.
From what I have read, this is a normal part of the process and a not so pleasant one either. Falls right behind the dreaded liquid diet!
I will perservere thru this phase, but its hard to have the Monster Hungry Fat Devil back and still trying to be restricted to a 1/2-1 C portion of food. Well, I could eat more if I wanted to, but I dont want to because that will lead to weight gain.
Man alive, now i'll be adding a ticker to my blogger to count down to my first fill. DR. H told me not to expect a huge loss in June following surgery, I guess I wanted to think I would be different, a cut above the mustard. I'm no different and will also now endure what is known as BANDSTER HELL. If you love me stand by me!
