Taking the Band on Vacation
So far vacationing with my new lap band has not been too difficult. I am still feeling some restriction, that became quite obvious at the airport when I tried to eat too much and became full after only a few bites. I brought some protein bars along with me and that has helped a great deal. We are staying in Portland, Maine at a quaint bed and breakfast tonight. I ate steamed lobster and clams tonight, so I got plenty protein. It was delicious. I even got in some great exercise today hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire. The only problem I experienced so far with my band is some tightening in my chest area after sitting so long in the airport and on the plane. It really hurt last night but seems to be getting better today.
