Damn you, carbs!

Earlier today, Grace posted a link to something that sounds like it's perfect for me right now. (thanks, Grace!!)

I had been trying to introduce complex carbs back into my diet in small quantities, but it just triggered my appetite --- not only for MORE CARBS, but in general. The last two days, I have not been able to stop eating, and I have been not only going way overboard on portions, but making some less-than-ideal choices.

Bread, rice, potatoes... check, check, check. Cereal, frozen yogurt, yep got those too. Bratwurst, waffles? 2-4 cups of food at a sitting? Oh yeah... down the hatch!

Band?? What's that?? Ain't nothing standing in the way of the HUNGER, and I haven't felt a smidgen of restriction with anything that's gone in my mouth.

The reason I got banded was because of *this*.

I'm like the little girl with the little curl....

When I'm good, I'm very, VERY good.
And when I'm bad??? Well, you see.

So, this pouch test thing sounds like it might just be what I need to reset me before my fill appointment on Thursday. I just hope I have enough protein to see me through until Tuesday when I can go shopping.

And I hope I can rein myself in to follow the test. Because even though today has been a whirlwind of snacking, I can hear the siren call of the cereal even as I type this. :(


  1. I'm glad I can help!!

    The best advice I have for Day 1 (because it's brutal as I've been indulging my every food whim as of late) is to imagine that your adherence will determine whether or not you can be banded. Basically, I've been pretending I don't have a band and want one really badly! :)

    I need a detox after yesterday... I had BK and Culvers. WTF is up with that?! And where did my band go?

    We're in this together!!! I hope your fill helps :)

  2. Oh boy.. maybe I should do this too.. after my little Ben and Jerry's binge, I need carb detox too1
