That's me the last few days.

I've tried to reset my "switch" to being back in diet mode after the Labor Day weekend here in the US, but for whatever reason, I have a serious appetite. At work I find I'm hungry, but by the evening I'm just noshing.

I had the opportunity to talk to my surgeon before Alex's surgery, and she asked me if I'd been in for my first fill yet. I couldn't get an appointment until the 14th however. She said to be careful because 75% of all lap-band patients gain wait between the end of their post-op diet and their fill.

I'm not gaining, but I'm having a hard time losing, and I definitely have a big appetite. I wasn't at all aware of this even with all the research I did. I'm still eating way less than I would on a binge before the band. I'm probably at like 2000 calories a day or just more when I don't at all pay attention. However, that doesn't help me on the weight loss front!

Less than a week until my fill. Also, on Thursday I'm going under hypnosis to help with my urges to eat!

Wish me luck!


  1. Hypnosis!?!? I hope it helps. I've thought of that over the years for ciggs, so let me know how it goes . . .

  2. I'll post about the hypnosis tomorrow. She's my regular therapist so the hypnosis is just an added benefit, I don't pay for it. She did a therapy session party under hypnosis and that was incredible. As for the hypnosis itself, VERY subtle but good. This one I hope to have more of a direct hit. I trust her and she really recommends it for diets and smoking. My sister did it to quit smoking and said it worked but you have to keep going back is the catch! It does wear off...

  3. correction: not actually a "therapy session party" just "partly"...
