5 month bandiversary

I was banded 5 months ago today, can't believe how quickly it has gone! In that time I've lost 2 stone (28 pounds) I only really felt restriction for the first time after my fill last week so I'm quite pleased with that.

My kids go back to school in 2 and a half weeks, I can hardly wait! As usual Isobel is being very trying, just at the moment she's not wanting to eat any meals, she'd eat junk all day long but I've thrown away so much food lately, she refused a cheese sandwich at lunch time (bread not right) and lasangne at dinner time (too crispy??) It's driving me to distraction, I sent her to bed after the dinner fiasco. I wouldn't mind if she actually tried the bloody food before rejecting it!
Please tell me that this too shall pass, we seem to be constantly battling, she's 5!
I can't imagine ever rejecting any food at all as a child I ate everything put in front of me, perhaps that's why I needed a band? One good thing could be that she isn't like me!

Hope that everyone is well, I'm going to go and bang my head against a wall repeatedly! xx


  1. Happy anniversary to you too! We're band twins!
    And hang in there, it will get better!

  2. Yay! When you were talking about your daughter at first I thought you were talking about your BAND!!!! :) Made me laugh!!!! You are doing great! It will pass!

  3. You've done great!! I'm sure Izzy is just in one of the phases. I have a pretty laid back 5 year old, but she has her moments too. Hang in there!

  4. Happy Bandiversary.. you are doing great.. and I found restriction was slow to come along.. but I think that is a good thing. Well I am trying to think back when my girls were 5, I think I held my ground as well.. and saying something like this is not a restaurant.. we all eat the same thing. Yes this will pass, and I guarentee your daughter will eat when she is hungry enough.. hang in there..

  5. Congrats on your 5 month bandiversary and 28 pounds lost!!
