Today has been one of the worst days I have had since being banded. My eating was totally out of control. I am shocked at how easily I can allow myself to slip back into old habits after nearly a year of staying on the course of a healthy lifestyle. How easy it has been to convince myself that I have kicked my food addiction. It is still there, hidden... Waiting to take control. I understand now that being banded is a necessary part of my life both now & for the rest of my life.
I definitely logged everything today but tracking did nothing to stop me from grazing. I am amazed at how more I can eat following that tiny unfill I had (.1cc). How can such a tiny adjustment make such a difference ?
In the spirit of full disclosure & accountability here is my food intake today .
1/2 of a omelet, incl. 1-egg, mushrooms, 1-turkey link, onions, sprinkle of low fat shredded cheese. (saved other 1/2 in fridge)
1-slice toast w 1-tsp smart balance spread
2 cup chicken ceasar salad
toppings from one pepperoni pizza
4 bites of a brownie
3 bite sized butterfingers
