Was it my Lucky Red Shirt?

Ohhhh-----I get it! This is what restriction is and feels like. Amazing!!!

Yesterday was my soft food day and I ate a couple of things that didn't really feel right--watermelon and a couple of chips( I know chips aren't soft) that gave me that stuck feeling which I have never had before. Today I have eaten an egg and cottage cheese for breakfast, vitamins, tuna with greek yogurt and crackers for lunch and I chew chew chewed and ate very slowly. Everything went down but I can feel my band talking to me---OMG!!!!

You know I have been listening to all of you and playing by the rules BUT have felt very disconnected---like maybe LB won't work for me--although I have to say my band or something (maybe all of you)have made me feel OK with being patient.

I thank you all for that!

Now it's time to really figure out how my band works!!

I will be right behind you! I have my first fill in 3 weeks. I am a little nervous about it. Hope it all goes well for you.

It is kind of funny when everyone talks about how the band works but it still doesn't sink in until the band finally shows up in ourselves. Here's hoping you see that it really is there and doing it's job.

I just found your blog and I'm looking forward to following your journey. I was banded on 3/24/10 so we are around the same time! I am going for my 3rd fill next Thursday. I hope you have restriction with this fill.

I felt exactly the same way you did. I was certain the band was not going to work for me & then WHAM! Glorious restriction!
