Lapband and Life Update week 11

Things have slowed down on the weight loss front, I am going to call the Dr. this coming week. It is so confusing. I am eating around 1200 calories or less and I am working out. Well, I am walking about 2 miles in the evening. I am moving. But I think that my body is freaking out and trying to hang onto whatever I eat just for survival....I am eating a little bit more protien now, I can eat juicy chicken, less than 2 oz. and some refried beans with onions. That seems to be pretty easy for me to get down. I HAVE to start eating more veggies!! I do eat spinach with my eggs in the morning, but it is not much. I need fruits too, but I just haven't ventured there much. I did eat some apple fries the other day and that went ok. I should try that more....
I have not gotten sick any more but I also stopped drinking water when I eat. That made all the difference.
Heres the deal. There is no way I could get in enough calories to function if I did not wash a little bit through the band. I eat two bites and I feel obstructed. I wash that through and try to eat two more little bites. Anybody else have an idea on how to get the calories without eating very much?Protien shakes just go right through the band and offer no sustaining "fullness". By the afternoon I have NO energy!! Like I said before I am calling the doctors this week...

Much love yall
Lisa

so... what did the dr say? What you are saying about your body freaking out and just trying to hold onto everything makes sense to me--- just curious about what the docs say

I'm interested in what the doctor said too... It's definitely something I need to ask the dietitian when I see her next week. It's something I hadn't thought about.
