Ok, sorry that the post is not peachy in any shape or form.
First of all, as of Sunday, I have gained 0.8 pounds. WTH? I must add that I have lost 2.5 % fat and gained 1.3% muscle and my visceral fat has decreased by 1% but why the weight gain? This is my second week post up, can't even have real food and I am already gaining. I do measure and only have 1/2 cup at a time, do my walkings and have my water.
Also, you know how everyone says something about sliming, PBs, and all those restrictions you talk about. You know how they suggest in your guidelines on how not to use a straw? That is the only way I can have water with out burping!!! seriously?
I also, have a sharp pain in my left side when I cough, sneeze, yawn or take a deep breath!
Conclusion: I really don't feel they put the band in! I am not kidding, how is that possible that I am so unlike every other person who has had the band?
So i emailed my coordinator and dietitian asking them about all of the above, you know what my dietician responded? Giving me an overview of what the band is and what it does!! Seriously, I was mad!! I wrote this fiery email to her and decided not to send it. 5567 dollars of the amount I paid is for the support/maintenance. So it is their job to address my worries. I swear to god all she said was not to eat too much and the band is a device to make me stay full for a longer time. Hello, did I say I am having discomfort or did I say I don't get full, no restrictions...
Also, as a part of package , they were supposed to send me a book, it has been more than a month that I am still waiting for it and every time my coordinator says ooh i have sent two, one got returned...
So today I sent her an email DEMANDING to have it sent to me via registered mail. For god sake I have paid 17000 dollars for what??
I am so mad and I am sorry if half of it doesn't make sense. but all the above in addition to my issues with my undergrad students and work deadlines have made me feel so defeated and frustrated.
I cry basically every night, I am not even kidding..
