Having fill taken out has really changed my way of thinking with food. Before, when I was super restricted, I could rely on the band more to make me stop when I'd only had a couple of mouthfuls. Now that I can eat more because I've got less restriction, I'm trying to choose foods that fill me up. I love the fact that I can eat more veges and fruit, including things like celery, apples, grapes and all that other good stuff. So I've filled my lunchbox with all things good. Today I'm having a can of tuna mixed in with some mayo, onion and tomato on vita wheat for lunch, breakky will be a celebrity slim with extra berries (for some antioxidate action), morning tea is 3 celery sticks with philly and afternoon tea is an apple and some low fat yoghurt. Tonight I'm having potato and leek soup, which I make from scratch so I can control the fat content, although I am lacking a bit on the protein side for dinner I might have to add some chicken as well.
I must also tell you that my exercise since having fill out over 1 month ago has been superb. I have been to the gym 5 days per week for the past 5 weeks, something I said I was going to do while my fill level was reduced. Today was no exception, and I did a hardcore spin class at 6:15am!! Go Me!
I can't wait to have my fill put back in.. Bring on 22nd October!!!... 15 days to go!!
Happy Tuesday peoples!
