I registered a 5 lb weight loss this week. Even with TOM and lots of stress and working around the clock. As I said before, its stressful times like this which would usually leave me a souvenir of 5-7 lbs. Protecting my health during times of stress is an NSV for me.
And finally for the first time in 9 months, I feel like the band is helping to curb my physical hunger. Usually my stomach starts growling 3-4 hours after eating. The last couple of days I noticed after skipping lunch (not intentional at all-really stressful schedule with back to back deadlines) that I didn't register hunger for close to 8-10 hours. The band helps me not to overeat, but I never felt any increased increased satiety...even if I ate protein rich food.
Question...how hungry are you during the day? Has the band curbed your appetite or does it just suppress your over eating or does it do both?
