Trying to eat enough food.....

So I am tempted to name my band because boy is it fickle.  Saturday I woke up tighter than a nun on valentines day!  I couldn't eat and could barely get my shakes down...I may have consumed only 500 calories...I was a little scared that I may need an unfill and all day I was trying to figure out why.  I get the depo shot so I have really no idea when my period is...it used to be the beginning of the month so I am thinking that is what it may be.  Sunday woke up and I had no problem, was able to have coffee and shake in am and small lunch and dinner...today I am pretty tight again.  I had a hard time with coffee and shake this morning.  You would think the weight would be dropping but i have been hanging steady since last wednesday and its not like I am eating much.  I was thinking it may be protein I was averaging around 60g so I am now trying for 80g and I broke down and got the premier shakes at costco(I prefer to make them myself)..all my wls friends say they are the best and I need shakes on the go when I don't have time to make them



I did get a cute lunch box...almost got a bento box but I need to order it because I am having a hard time finding them at the stores.  I got this cute one at bed bath and beyond.  It seems big here but its not, there is enough room for my icepack and 2 premier shakes a few crackers and hummus. (I store at my desk...hate the community fridge it just stinks)




and here is my view from my desk...I am afraid of heights...In fact I don't look down ---out window often




I seem to be eating around 800-1000 calories a day on non tight days...can't really eat much more than that.  We will see when I weigh in tomorrow and Wednesday...those seem to be the days I weigh the least.  I am really needing to evaluate my diet because I have read in others blogs that 1200 calories is the weight loss goal but I am not sure I can get there!

Wow, I haven't had that wonky 'why am I so tight today?' experience yet - but hey, if you get to pack those awesome shakes in such a cute bag, then it'll all turn out okay, right?

Keep up the good work - and the good attitude!

OMG - I didn't think I was afraid of heights but that pic even scares me. LOL

I love your view - My view of a parking lot with the smokers standing outside the window is not great :-(

Love the bag...I can't get those shakes here in Canada so I'll have to look when Im in Boston next month. Im getting an unfill tomorrow - if you're not pb'ing then try and stick with it - Im super scared to be so tight cause Ive been pb'ing alot so off for a tiny unfill. You're doing great and I find that stress makes me super tight and I can't usually eat anything until 11:00am. ps. we'll try & stay on a lowish floor at BOOBs or I'll take the bed beside the window if were high up. :)

My band is fickle too... Some days I can't even get my Greek yogurt down, and other days I could eat a whole chicken without chewing.

At least you've got a view. ;)

As for fickleness...common complaint amongst bandsters. Mine varies in tightness too but never so much that I can't eat. I've heard heat can play a role and humidity levels can even play a role. Hope you figure it out. :)

Do you like those shakes? Three years out from my surgery and I'm still trying to find one I like enough to have one every day. Love the lunch bag!
