Puree Stage

So I started on the Puree'd diet stage of my diet and I have to say that this has been one of the most difficult stages. I do believe that I am fully healed and I have no more swelling. I also believe that I am one of these people who have been able to eat the same amount since before the lap band as I am constantly hungry on the portions that I have been told to have. I am pretty much eating normally now, and I do feel a tiny bit of restriction after a larger meal, but I definitely can handle more than half a cup of puree at each meal. I'm still worried that my band may have slipped and that's the reason why I can eat more at this stage. Only time will tell.

I have my second Dietitian appointment next week and then the first fill on Monday 5th March.

Sounds like you're doing great. Your body has obviously healed well. I haven't been back to see the dietician since I had my band done. I think I might make an appointment and go and see him though. Make sure I'm eating the right things.

I think once you get a fill you'll notice that you won't be so hungry. I remember the last week before my first fill I was just hungry constantly.

Hey, I just realised that we have similar starting weights and all! I'm 167cms and started at 111.4kgs. This morning I was 99.0kgs. It's so exciting!!!

From what I've read on the lapband support site, if your band had slipped, you'd have trouble keeping anything down. So I don't think you should be too worried about it.

You're doing great!!
