    I am 10kgs away from gaining back all my weight. What a roller coaster. I was so happy and comfortable and now I’m back to the start. Depressed and desperate... honestly so disappointed in myself.

    Ok, so.. I was banded in July 2014! I was 104kgs when I started my journey and now I've finally reached my first goal of 60kgs! I had a photo taken on the weekend and was just in shock.. I couldn't believe it was me! So I've put the photos side by side  

    I've always hated photos with a passion but now I'm happy to be in them. The band was definitely the best decision I have ever made. I know as a fact that I wouldn't be where I am today without it. 
    This is me in the middle, finally looking and feeling normal. I've always felt so uncomfortable around people and never wanted to go anywhere because I always felt disgusting. Now I'm feeling confident and happy! Such a good feeling  

    Now that I have this newfound happiness and confidence I'm making friends and enjoying life. I was in a really shitty relationship for a few years and just accepted it because I pretty much thought "who else would want me". Now I've found someone that actually respects me and treats me right! 
    Anyone out there that is thinking about getting the band, I cannot push hard enough for you to get it! It's changed my life in so many ways. 
    We're all capable of so many amazing things but the weight just holds us back and stops us from experiencing how beautiful and fun the world really is. Once the weight is off you just feel so much better about life.  If I can do it you can do it

    65.5kg today  
    for some reason I can't get it out of my head. Someone will ask me how much I weigh and I always say 80... Oh wait it's 60...  Really can't believe how far I've come! Never gonna see triple digits again!!!

    I've been slacking off for a couple months and hovering at the same weight between 68 and 69kgs. I found this photo of myself from last year and I still had the tshirt so I thought I would do a comparison!

    So that's me down 36kgs from 104 to 68 hopefully get to my goal of 60 in a few months, by summer would be great!

    I definitely, definitely encourage people starting out their journeys to just take a photo of yourself no matter how gross you might feel, because later down the track you're going to be like wow!! I can't believe that was me.

    I went overseas for a month, no scales, no full body length mirrors..  My stomach was so huge and I was scared that I had undone all the effort I've put into this journey.
    I come home and weigh myself, no damage done. Go me! What a relief.. I was bloated from the horrible tap water there, nasty stuff. I actually dropped a kg while over there, last time I gained 10!

    Lots of info online too, regarding mash consistency and food ideas

    But with liquids and mashies it's always easy to go overboard so maybe that's why the dietician said that. Just be mindful of what you're eating of course calories creep up quickly with liquids/mash

    i'm assuming she told you to stay on liquids until you saw her because you were supposed to see earlier?

    I'm not telling you to go against directions of a professional, in fact I do believe you should listen to their advice. Maybe give her office a call and let them know you won't be able to see them for however amount of time.

    Let them know what you are doing, I was on clear liquids for the first week, all liquids on second and mashy consistency on third. So you sound about right with that.

    I agree with nb79.
    I only saw my dietcian preop, the advice my surgeon gave me was better than the dieticians. They're a team and all make money so surgeon encourages you to see them.

    I never had a follow up appointment with my dietician because I really dislike her and thought she was very expensive for not very much information.

    I guess if you're feelig lost and need some guidance you could see your dietician to figure some things out.

    You also have us here though. I've noticed a lot of people do find their dieticians very helpful, I just wasn't one of those people.

    See the dietician when you can and if you can, I'm sure they will understand. We all have money troubles.

    Not completely, I did eat less though but still felt that I was able to eat too much. I have 5ml in a 7ml band right now and I can easily over eat with the wrong things. Can eat much less chicken breast and veggies than I can rice or casserole.

    Still no matter what eat much less than I did before the op. Even when i thought I was eating too much at the beginning, I think I just expected to eat much less..
