band issues ~I am still having the reflux problems. If it doesn't clear up by next week, I will go in for another unfill. I hate getting an unfill when I currently have no restriction. June 2010 I posted a fairly lengthy list of foods that I could no longer eat with my band. Today that list is completely gone. I chug water like a elephant and can eat anything I want (not a good thing). Here I sit with no restriction and needing a fill, but at the same time, I cannot resolve this reflux problem, causing me to get an unfill instead. Hence, making an already non restriction problem worse.
I completely researched the band before deciding on WLS. Bottom line, who really knows how long we will have our bands? What I DO KNOW is that I am not willing to risk esophagus cancer in order to keep it. I will continue to get unfilled until my band is empty to have this reflux problem resolved. If it does not get resolved, I will explore removal.
Healthy Eating~ Last week I replaced sugar and white bread with healthier choices. My daily calorie allowances were too high (over 1500) on three days. Too much snacking! Something to work on for this week.
Fitness~Last week I worked out 4 days including 2 days of rehab on my knee, walking & my first ever Zumba class. It was a killer workout but I was a little spastic, I think. I also did Zumba wii once.
Water~I am getting about 40oz, I need to get back up to 60oz per day.
AREAS OF CONCENTRATION FOR THIS WEEK
- KEEP CALORIES UNDER 1200
- INCREASE WORKOUTS TO 4X
- ADD ONE ADDITIONAL BOTTLE OF WATER
