Fears and all that junk

I went back to working as usual this last monday.  I cleaned 7 houses this week.  I'm beat, but mostly because I have come down with a cold.  I woke up this morning with a sore throat and sniffles and I had to tackle a 5 bedroom 4 bath house today too.  Boy was I glad when I got that done.  I ran some errands and got some Nyquil.  I will probably fall face first in about 30 minutes.  Anyways,

I have to admit that I am a bit afraid of food.  I guess I am not feeling like I have control yet.  Dont get me wrong, I have not overdone any eating (since being banded) but I still feel like that could happen.  I dont think I am eating very much now and am doing fine.  No drastic weight loss yet but maybe its cause im not eating enough.  I am lazy though about writing my food intake fact i havent at all.  I guess I should really do that.

I have to say also that I do not have any problem eating anything ive tried, I can even gulp!  Yes, I gulp! My drink that it.  I think also that there was only one time when I was eating some corn tortillas toasted a bit with butter spray that I felt like I was topping off and couldnt eat any more. 

I am still really just getting used to eating less.  I stop eating way before I want to and it is really hard but I know I need to get used to eating less.  I usually have my protein shake for breakfast which gives me most of if not all my protein that i need for the day so I am not worried about that.

I started walking a couple of nights ago.  Of course I didnt go tonight cause im not feeling good but I am really happy to be back to getting some excercise in.

I'm staring to feel like im kinda scatter brained so I better go.  I hope I made sense.


  1. I think your fears are normal. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. your fears are very normal and this is a tough time mainly because you CAN infact eat most things! You'll get there! You'll start having signs and sometimes even after the first fill it will be a learning process! But you are doing great!

  3. Bandster hell, that's all. You're just getting hungrier b/c you're healing. :)

    I would start writing down what you eat if you can find the motivation - that's really been key for me losing the amount I have so far!

  4. I imagine I will have the same fears......congrats on doing so well Tanya! Keep up the great work!

  5. Bandster Hell, you haz it. Sorry! It will pass.

    Hope your cold goes away quickly.
