Coffee with 2 tbsp Dulce de Leche creamer - 100 calories
Snack size ziplock of dry cereal
lately it's been snack size candy from the kids' halloween stash
Leftovers from the night before, whatever the drug rep brings in or a SmartOnes frozen meal
more candy from the kids halloween stash, a yogurt or string cheese. Depends on what's in my lunch bag and how crappy of a day it's been.
Whatever I make the family. The other night it was burritos and I just eat the insides because the tortillas get stuck. Other nights it's chicken and veggies, pot roast with veggies, etc.
Night time snack:
Again, sugar laden or chocolate.
Yes, I eat 6 times a day. Even with a morning snack my stomach is loudly growling with hunger at lunch. Same thing, even with an afternoon snack, it's growling by 5 when I get off work and dinner usually isn't til 7. So I usually end up snacking while making dinner. Sad, but true. But I'm 7 months post op and have had only 2 fills resulting in barely,any restriction. The only things I can't eat since being banded are breads. So no sandwiches, pizza, doughnuts, rolls, croissants, etc. I also don't exercise beyond the squats and walking done at work. So that is why my weight loss is so much slower than many who are banded the same time as me.
I know we're not supposed to compare ourselves to others, but we're human and we all do it. So yes, I get frustrated when I see someone banded the same time as me who's lost 60 lbs. But my goal is to lose 75lbs, as I barely met the qualifications of being 100lbs overweight. I'm not going to shed it as fast as someone who has twice as much to lose. My weight loss may be slower and I may not do everything right, but I'm still losing and that's what counts.
