    I have just realised that the post I done during the wee hours of this morning (12:45am) did not post oh well I'm learning still. My dog and I have just returned home from what I was planning to be a relitavely chilled out not overly long walk, due to a long sustained injury. (Trying to ease myself into it again) How wrong I was! Silly me got lost in the bush land and ended up walking for an hour and a half! Go me so happy that I actually done it though, I say this now while I'm still on a high of a huge completion but I guarantee later when my body is aching it will be a different tune. ; )

    Feeling overwhelmed

    Hi there, sorry to see you've been a little overwhelmed, I too recently went through a similar thing having A LOT on my plate, loss of job study load and preparing to move house and like yourself had trouble drinking and eating, for me once the stress levels reduced I was able to drink and eat again. Don't panic too much it does settle eventually! But sucks majorly during the time. Anyways just wanted you to know your not alone hope you feel better soon : )

    Almost 12 months post up and 20kg gone

    Hi there, well done on your loss so far! I have just reached the 12 month mark and have only lost 15. I understand how your feeling that's for sure! I honestly thought it was only me losing so slow and i thought I'd be losing quicker too! My surgeon hasn't complained at all, he says 'oh that's just numbers as long as your body shape is changing' but I still feel constantly dissapointed in myself! Don't give up I'm sure as hell not! Feel free to pm me any time for a chat I'm happy to be here for you.

    Telling your younger Kids?

    Thanks to you both, I'm loving being a part of this website more and more I have been worried for the past six months that I'd done the wrong thing but as you said Rlar kids are way to observant, it was only a matter of time before she asked questions.

    All the best for tomorrow. I also stayed overnight, it's so great not having to stay long! I totally agree with Rlar loose comfy clothes and no Bra! You will be fine and well looked after I'm sure. Everyone's pain is different and I'm not trying to scare you in any way but from my experience the best thing I learnt is that you can get adults liquid panadol (Panamax) from chemist warehouse for around $5 and pain stop. (It's a bit stronger and it's liquid) you have to ask a pharmacist for that one but it works a treat! so grab yourself some for just in case. And again best of luck.

    Telling your younger Kids?

    I'm wondering if any one else has had to tell a younger child about there band? i was in two minds about explaining it to my 7yo at first but as time has gone by i felt like i needed to explain it. she was noticing my smaller meals, eating slower and not to mention the 'stuck' times. i am really lucky that she is a smart kid and with a proper explanation she has a genuinely understood, she even attended my last fill with me and was genuinely interested in what my surgeon was doing and asked to have a look after. i always ask myself if i shouldn't of explained things to her but then think i would feel bad if i didnt. sooooo im wondering if anyone else has had to go through anything similar??

    Baked egg yummy!

    This is so so easy and delicious great for a couple of stages of the band and great post op! Baked egg/s In a Ramekin place a couple baby spinach leaves, crack in your egg/s top with crumbled feta and bake until desired. This is so simple, tasty and can be added to with a little bit of ham, adding sliced roast capsicum or some mushrooms the possibilities are endless. Anyways thought I'd share this with you all hope you like it. 😄
