    Finally I'm under 110kilos - 109.6 and I have my 2nd appt this Wednesday so i'll have to remember to ask what size etc and hopefully they'll put some fill in this time. I have sat between 110 - 111kilos for 6 weeks but my body shape was changing and adjusting so I still felt things were moving I hope you are all going well and feeling great

    Okay I'm glad things are going in the right direction for you now, um I've got an appt on 19/3 and they might give me a fill (my 1st one) as I'm sometimes peckish in the afternoon.

    Pre Fill query

    I have my next appointment at 10.40am and am supposing they will do a fill then as I'm starting to get hungry in the afternoons but I don't think it's real hunger. So i'm intrigued as to how mine will be done Thankyou Ang77 for asking this as I hadn't even thought about if there's any preparation required

    Pre-op cost of drinks they recommend ?

    That's Optislim 2 for $50.00 not Optifast which is what is reccommended but I ended up alternating between the 2 Opti's after comparing what was in both. It's hard to find Optifast products cheap. I asked my dietician and she said they know Optifast has everything in it that we need but they hadn't looked into Optislim or other brands. Good luck with your journey
  11. You need a Dr you can talk to and who will explain all options and talk to you, sometimes the sleeve or band are recommended if you live a distance away due to fills/unfills etc. Always remember to write any questions down so you can get the answers you need. I was 140 kilos now I'm 110.1 kilos so i've exceeded those expectations but remember we are all different and are there any medical issues on why the band isn't suitable. I agree with Kimmykay that maybe you need a different Dr. Good luck with your journey
  12. Thankyou, I've just enrolled as this looks interesting as do some other courses

    a general day of food with lapband?

    I eat lamb but had a problem with slow cooked beef (I think it was to dry) but will try it again also eat beef mince. It's all trial and error and what goes down one day may not another.
