So hungry!

I am five-days post op from my lap band WLS and today I am soooooooooo hungry. I really haven't been hungry until the last couple days. Yesterday I was hungry and I had some soup for lunch and I was completely stuffed for the rest of the day. Today I had the same soup about an hour ago and now my stomach is growling away.

I liked not having to eat. I liked feeling full and not needing to eat. I felt great and had plenty of energy. If I start eating regular food again, it could take control of me again.

I have come to realize that my life is really out of balance when it comes to food and my relationship to food. I guess eating too little is just as out of whack as eating too much, but can't I have a little more time to live without being crazy about food?

Please tell me that the lap band is going to work! I know it is a tool and not a solution on its own, but isn't is suppossed to make me feel full by eating only small ammounts? I also realize that I am only eating liquids right now so they can just slip right down through the opening. Can anyone relate?

I CAN SOOOO RELATE!!!!! I had my surgery on the 11th and I am starting to get the tummy growls. Yesterday I thought they had surgically implanted a mountain lion inside me. I am starting blenderfood today and already ate a package of mashed potatoes cause I was so hungry. Now of course I feel horrible about it.

I hope it works for both of us. I am told it gets better. We are going on the path at about the same time so hopefully we overcome this pull food has over us. GOOD LUCK!!!

I love that we are almost to the day on the same path.
