  1. 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.

  2. Wow caugtbetween that's amazing!! Good on you!! I wouldn't be to worried about the pelvic floor mines kinda shot to after one, lol

    I still have a lot to go before I can join my girl on the tramp!! I've been loosing very slowly so far, I've recently had a fill and changed my exercise regime so fingers crossed it starts melting away!!

  3. 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??

  4. 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.

  5. Hi Kalalan! Thanks for the warm welcome!!

    I am proud to say that i have just reached my 12 month mark!!

    i am unsurehow all these forums and things work.

    I would like to also share that my reason for joining this website in the firstplace is because my weight loss has been very slow so far, all my family and close friends know about my band and are super supportive of me, they have noticed what i have lost so far which is great because i dont ha ha

    I think my own expectations are too high andi just need to keep going and be happy with whatever losses i have.

  6. Hi all I am a relatively new to having my band but know a fair bit about it with members of my family having the same or similar ops.

    I have joined banding together as a form of support for myself and so I can help to support others.

    I would never change my decision to have my band and am so so grateful that I had the opportunity to have my op.

    I have had my third fill yesterday and now have 7ml in my band (I don't know how much it holds in total)
