Laura's Gastric Band Journey - Week 11


Laura is making some choices in response to her emotions. Will she be able to stay strong and on track?

This week starts with my Grandad's funeral and as expected, I just feel sick. The motion of the day went by and I had nothing to eat. I knew it would go one way or another so I just made sure I drank plenty of fluids to make up for it (non alcoholic). 

The day after we went to clear up and I still hadn’t eaten so by the time evening came round we ordered a Chinese. I only had a small bowl and after a few mouthfuls I couldn’t eat any more. 

The next threes days were sorting personal items out and keeping busy. My intake of foods was pretty dire, my appetite had just disappeared. Sunday my friend had invited us for a BBQ and I made a conscious effort to eat well, so I took the salad first then a little meat. I actually ate it all for the first time in a long time! It felt good to be getting back to normal. I weighed myself on Monday and I’d lost another couple of pounds which is great.
