    Lissey steak is one small part of protein, there is mince, chicken, beef stews, beans... And if you really like steak, try it, not all of us experience the same level of restriction. Golden rule is chew chew chew chew and small bites

    Kazawaki I was also told to use Coloxyl but it didnt work so I use the Senna one, was there a reason why the Senna should not be used? I just chose Senna as its natural...

    Non Scale Victories (NSVs)

    10cm's down on my stomach! Woohoooo
  8. Amani I have only been banded 7 weeks and never had anything get stuck but from what I have read if the band is tightened or if you dont chew properly food gets stuck and then you have a PB (productive burp - vomit) moment when your stomach clears the blockage. I have read it can be painful and unpleasant. Moral of the story chew chew chew and when you think you have chewed enough, chew some more lol

    Well why mess around, my dietician said my dr was being ver conservative and he would expect me to end up with 4-5.5mls in my band to be in the zone...

    Jayali the scale is scary for the first few days while your body adjusts, dont stress, you will see a change in 2 or 3 days I love potato in any form except potato salad... Give me chips, mash or a nice big spud with butter and sour cream and I am in heaven lol

    I will keep that in mind, I need 1.5ml to take me to 4mls I have 4/5 cups of coffee a day... *eek* I hear you - too much right? But considering it use to be more like 10 cups a day, I would say I am doing well(ish) Some of the 4/5 cups will only be 2/3 as it gets cold before I can finish it...

    Geez thats a big fill. I think thats what I need, 2.5ml in a 10ml band is not enough...

    Angel I go on Wednesday and I cant wait! I am a bit over the 89/90 war going on and need to get some sort of restriction to force me to kick it up a bit.... I know its not fat weight but its deflating going up and down between 89.7 and 90.4 - seriously... Am I drinking too much water, not enough water, too much coffee... Not the right combination of foods... I just want to crack on. I know I should avoid getting on the scale every morning but I just cant help myself lol

    I agree Angel, I sabotage myself by buying the wrong stuff so now I am very careful with what I put in the trolley.

    Congrats Jayali, in a weeks time you will be good as new. Dont be shy to ask for pain meds and the best thing for the shoulder (gas) pain is to walk.
