    Hi Ashmee, look after yourself don't push to early, rest as much as you can. Congrats daisy and Jenna. It's slow going for me just resting lots, not too much shoulder pain just that bad indigestion pain and discomfort lying down better on my back than my side. How is everyone feeling with that?

    Hi everyone, quick update- still waiting not going in till 6pm but getting very excited, just had my weigh in 99kg. I was 109kg on 8/8 so 10kg in 4 weeks is amazing. I only did opti for 5 days, my partner said "let's get a refund that was too easy" :-) Well yes I would like to think this whole process has been easy if was too hard people just wouldn't do it. Stay positive everyone getting done this week. My anaesthetist just said this is going to change your life you are going to feel amazing. And so we all will xxx

    In my pre-op diet I am allowed to have any vegie except white potato, and a little oil. So I had the following for dinner last night and it was yum! Admittedly the patties were not that firm, but it tasted great. I haven't given quantities because its a great recipe for leftovers. PATTIES Cook some sweet potato and let it cool. Also cook whatever vegies you like, but cut into smallish pieces - I used carrot, broccoli, corn, sliced snow peas and sweated onion. Make sure that all of the cooked vegies are as dry as possible. Mash the sweet potato and combine the other vegies. Form into patties, place on baking paper and chill. Cook the patties in a hot non-stick pan which has been sprayed with oil, and turn once only. When turning, spray under the patty before replacing in the pan. HERB AND TOMATO SAUCE. Cook some chopped onion and garlic in a little oil, and add a few teaspoons of water till it is soft. Add a can of chopped tomatos, herbs (I used basil and oregano), capsicum and pepper. Bring to boil and simmer till the tomato is soft, and the flavours infused. Enjoy - and it doesn't matter if the patties break up 'cos they still taste great! Sailorgirl.

    congrats to all those who posted so far for this week. I just broke through the barrier into the 70's last week and thought that I would bounce back up to 80 or so as I usually do a 10 kilo dance.(Under then over and so forth till I am securely below) But it seems that today I am 79.5 so a loss of I think .4 or 400grams. Stoked with that as it means I will probably be staying below Yay!! Not long till I get to goal now!

    I know this is one of those cliché diet tips but when you think you are hungry, try having a glass of water or two. Wait about 10-15 minutes and re-assess. This has been my hardest struggle. I will feel a certain sensation in my abdomen and automatically think 'time to eat!' but I read somewhere that if you are constantly eating, you lose the ability to recognize actual hunger and oftentimes, what you think is hunger is actually THIRST. I have been trying to take the time to tune into my body and determine if I am actually hungry or just bored/thirsty/emotional. I have a hard time with this so I know that saying 'oh have some water, it will help' is so much easier then doing it but I feel like I am making progress.. Anyway, good luck with the HH and if you find something that works, let me know

    Oh so close to the Green Zone!!!!! I had an appoitnment with the dietician last night and when he weighed me I had lost 2.1kgs in 10 days!!!! Woo Hoo!!! So much better than the 200g in the previous two weeks!!!!! Im still getting hungry and wanting small snacks between meals so he has recommended that I would benefit from a small fill at my next appointment with the GP who does our fills. He said normally with that weight loss I wouldnt get any more fill but he thinks just a small amount more will just make it that bit easier to control portion sizes and control hunger. Obviously it will still be the GPs decision but its nice having the support of the dietician as well!! Im seeing the GP next Thursday so fingers crossed for another good result on the scales!!! The dietician is wanting me to focus on counting carbs - not calories. Because I have PCOS and am insulin resistant he wants me to limit carbs to 3-4 15g serves a day. He gave me a great guide as to what a serve of carbs looks like and ideas to increase protein. While some of this is information I have been over countless times with other dieticians I find that the guideance I am being given is actually achievable and realistic. Im loving my band at the moment!!!! Hope everyone else is finding their way!!!

    What about juicing them just to get the vitamins from the fruit & vegies?
