8 weeks on

Wow! I can't believe it's been nearly 8 weeks since I had my baby! Still massively sleep deprived but my LO has started with the smiles and the "talking" so it makes the bags under my eyes well worth it.

Lapband wise, it's hit and miss at the moment. Some days I'm so tight I can barely get a protein shake down, other days, like last night, pasta was no problem. I don't understand why my band works like this. I don't think I ever will.
Checkup with the OBGYN was fine. I was 94kg which was a kilo or two lighter than the start of my pre-preg weight. The problem is that if I start dieting again then I run the risk of my milk supply getting low, which I don't want cos I am breastfeeding exclusively. And exercising too heavily (which I love to do with my spinclasses) also poses the same risk to my milk supply. So what to do? Definitely getting back to exercising, but not going to go as hard core as I would like to at the moment. I'm going to start back 1 spin class a week and the rest will be machine workouts and pump classes. This starts at the end of august when my gym membership kicks in again. As for the food and "diet" aspect. I'm starting my protein shakes in the morning. My main meal is generally at night cos that's when the band seems to behave itself the best. In between I'm going to concentrate on healthy snacks and lots of fluids.

Weigh in tomorrow!

Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for reading.

I have several friends with the band, and it's interesting to see another perspective. I do have to say, You GO girl.

Wow...that time went fast!! Great to hear you are doing well though. I wish I could feel as keen about exercise as you do!

Just wondered how many cc's you have in your band. And how many cc's does yours hold.
