These burgers are amazing - seriously????

Last night was a bit hard, maybe not hard, more annoying, DS made mini hamburgers for him and the kids, he came down to the couch and sat right next to me and ate four of them.  The night before he sat next to me and ate a chick-fil-a sandwich and fries...should i be upset?  I don't know?  I kind of was, the kicker was that after he ate the burgers his comment to me was "those were so amazing".  I was like "Seriously???, you are going to sit there and say that to me right now???"  WTH???

I guess today i am going to need to talk to the whole family about helping me with this journey - i didn't really do that before this journey and i guess i do.  I am going to need them to be conscious of what they do and where they eat and the words they use after they eat the food...

Honestly last night though, the burgers weren't appealing to me, probably because the water and shakes i am doing right now feel a little slow going down the pipe - so the thought of bread or a burger - no way!

It is day 4 of the band and still feeling pretty good.  The only challenges is that i feel so tight in my chest, must be the hiatal hernia that she repaired.  But otherwise, still a bit of pressure from the gas and some shoulder pain but from what i read on the various blogs, etc this is all normal and to be expected.
Had some chicken broth yesterday, a few bits of jello, 1.5 protein packets and most of my water.  Only one flintstones, but all in all a pretty good day.
Today's goals:
1 - Move more, back to work tomorrow
2 - Get in both protein packs
3 - Drink 48 oz of water
4 - Take both of my flintstones
5 - Not lay down on the couch for more than two hours :-)

One day post

Day after and doing great. Been up walking every hour, getting in my liquids, one protein shake down, one more to go. Have changed from the Tylenol with codeine to just Tylenol. Seems to be ok. Takes the edge off. 

The support from those that know has been amazing. I am super duper lucky. So when I am ready to share with others I can point them to this site :). 

I have really been enjoying reading all the other lap band blogs. Great info and insights. Can't wait to get some of the weight tracker widgets on my site. Just not yet. Waiting to log on to my computer when I am up vs. on my iPad. 

I am not hungry today. My hubbies lunch smelled good but I wasn't interested :). 

Also spoke to the doc today and she was surprised I was already working the program so well. I told her that following the program is what we need to do. The rules and guides are here for a reason. So let's do it!

'twas the night before banding

It is the night before my surgery and I am in the soft foods mode. Really, really excited and pretty nervous at the same time. I am so looking forward to this next chapter of my life. I am at the doorway of success!!!
