So tonight we were invited to a friend's house , there were around 30 of our friends there, none of them know about my lap-band. The only people who knew were my parents, my brother and my husband.
I thought of many different excuses on how not to go, i even thought I'll ask my husband to go and tell them I am sick. But then I went and had dinner there! She had made so many things, out of which I had pureed sweet potato and some salmon( well, I really had to chew the fish to avoid any problems). Instead of pop, I asked for water.As for the dessert, I had some jello. I realized people do not pay attention to what I eat as much as I thought they would. Mind you these are people who are older than us at least by 20 years. Great friends, love them all.
I just tried to avoid taking stuff that was constantly offered, I even took a few sweet stuff they offered and left them in my plate. I passed on the alcohol too and stuck to a few cups of tea! I however, told them I am trying to lose weight and prefer not to eat so much :)
Being only 7 days out of surgery, wearing jeans was not that easy but I survived. I can't believe how full I felt and this is with no fills. My doctor doesn't put anything in the band at the time of surgery so I assume I have 0 cc out of my 10 now. I probably will have a fill in 5 weeks. I am going for a post-op check up on March 15th, see what my doctor says about that.
Have a great Sunday and the rest of the week everyone...
