Well I seem to have made the transition from mushies to solid food a little early. This week I've had sausages, bread, cucumber - and they've all been fine. It's been 3.5 weeks since surgery and I'm chewing my food like crazy so it might as well be mush. Even though I can probably eat quite a bit more than I am, I'm using myfitnesspal to track everything I eat and most days staying around 1200 calories, though yesterday I didn't even make it to 1000. I haven't really noticed the band when I'm eating, sometimes I worry that it's not in there! I'm sure it is, I've got the incisions (war wounds) to prove it. My fill is scheduled for 2 weeks today.
I've been having a little bit of pain in my left side, kind of near the medium sized incision I've got there - but it feels like a pulled muscle. I don't know if it's to do with surgery or I just stretched too far when painting my friend's hallway the other day.
I haven't been doing as well as I should with protein or water. I don't know what the deal with water is - I used to be so good a drinking the right amount, but since being banded I don't think I've had a single day when I've reached my quota. That will be my mission this week.
