Three days after my second fill and I'm debating whether it's worked. I seem to be eating more than I did/could before the fill. That's a bit odd, isn't it? Admittedly, this second fill only took me back to what the first fill should have given me, but you'd think I wouldn't be able to eat as much, wouldn't you? Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case on my first day back to "proper" food following a couple of days of liquids/mushies. This is what I've eaten (so far; there are still 2 hours til bed time...) today:
Breakfast: nearly two slices of toast (this is the first time I've been able to eat this much bread in one sitting - how can that be?!); coffee (I've not yet mastered the bandster art of not eating and drinking at the same time...)
Snack: seven, yes you read that right, SEVEN biscuits: 2 choc digestives, 2 bourbons, 2 viennese fingers and 1 custard cream. These biscuits have been in the house since Christmas, so why did I decide I wanted to eat them today? Yes, I've eaten biscuits since being banded, but never more than two in one sitting. So, that's more toast than usual and, on top of that, seven biscuits.
Lunch: 8 chunks of mango (very proud of myself; seems to me like the sort of thing a 'proper' bandster might list as their lunch)
Snack: chocolate tiffin cake; vanilla latte (you won't know this because I've not listed my daily intake before, but I do tend to have a coffee and a cake most afternoons; so far it's not affected my weightloss [although if I didn't eat a cake-a-day it's quite possible that I would have lost more weight by now, but I'm fine with that, I like my cake and at the moment I don't want to give it up])
Another snack: 1/2 slice of toast (which the small boy didn't eat for his dinner); three teaspoons of egg mayonnaise sandwich filling
Dinner: two-thirds of a chicken korma; half a naan bread
Who knows what more food I might be able to consume before bed time?! If you didn't know me from this blog, would you think I had a gastric band?! Do I need another fill, or has today just been one of those days? Only time (and the scales) will tell...
