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?
