Siepie posted a comment about travelling and the band. How do I cope? what are my experiences?
Well first of all, I didn't get any fill out. I've had this band in long enough to know what I can and can't eat.
When I travel, especially overseas, I am usually lucky enough to travel business class because of work. This means that I get access to a lounge and nice comfy chairs on the flight. When I fly I never feel hungry at the right times so I generally try to eat regularly and I definitely try to drink loads and loads of water. I always have an aisle seat as I have had times where I have needed to PB because I am in a weird sitting position when I eat. Usually on my flights I get offered a 3 course meal. Generally I just have a few bites of each course and a baileys on the rocks to finish (which normally knocks me out cold and I get a bit of sleep!!).
I've had some good flying experiences when having the band. I thank god for my band when I'm in conferences for 5 days as they seem to want us to eat every 2 hours! The band really does help me limit my eating, especially because I LOVE trying new foods.
Hope this helps all you other travellers out there! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have.
P.S Jet lag does suck. I was hungry at 3am so I got up and made myself some mashed potato!! Crazy!
