Today's Weight


That’s 256.7 lbs (that’s for you Ronnie!!)

This means I have lost a total of 3.1kg (6.8 lbs) in my first month of being filled. I have to admit,  I am a little disappointed. I was expecting to lose 5kg or more. Before the band, this loss in a month would have made me ecstatic. Am I expecting too much?

Could I have done more? DEFINITELY! I really did not eat well for a lot of this month, and I exercised only about once a week. So I know what I need to do in the next filled month.

I am getting my second fill today. I really cannot wait! I’ve been so bloody hungry and able to eat anything and everything. I was hoping to be 115 (253 lbs) by this second fill, but whatever! Life goes on! 🙂 I am losing people! I never thought is possible!

If I am 112kg (246.4 lbs) by the end of April, I think I will be very happy!


Butter Beans and Rocket Leaves

30 Mar

Butter Beans and Rocket Leaves

– Minced Fresh Garlic
– Sliced Spanish Onion (sautee both in 1tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
– Canned Butter Beans
– Fresh Chopped Tomato
– Tomato Paste (simmer lightly for 20min)
– And then right at the end stir through Rocket Leaves to serve


I just have one question. So I always drink any liquids half an hour after eating, but this dish poses a problem. It is made up of both liquids and solids. How does this affect the band? Can I eat meals with both liquids and solids at the same time?
