Ok, I get it now!!

I felt like I was very well prepared for life as a bandster. I've searched and researched and thought, "this is going to be a piece of cake!"
Yeah, so a little over 2 weeks out and the scale is stuck!!!! I'm following all of the rules...why isn't the stupid scale MOVING???????
I read about "bandster hell" and thought....nah that won't happen to me!!! I will just truck along and lose lose lose.....HAHAHAHA!!!!! I'm still 2 weeks out from my first fill...I want restriction!! I want to PB....I want all of the experiences that let me know my band is actually there!!!!
I guess I'm being a whiny baby....but by golly, I went through this surgery...I took the step to be successful at weight loss...and now I'm feeling like a failure!!!
I have a goal to lose 40-50 pounds by August 23....after losing 26 pounds in 2 weeks I thought I was cruising along....maybe afer July 19th the scale will smile at me once again...


  1. It may just be your body hanging onto every calorie out of fear of starvation. Sounds silly, but when I hit a plateau I do a day or 2 of higher calorie eating and it usually helps. Not always, but usually!

    Stay strong--you can do this!

  2. Hang in there! You are in bandster hell! It will get better as soon as you get some restriction. Just hang in there!!!!
