    I'm confused and worried

    I recently had similar problems as I got closer to my goal weight. I saw my surgeon and he removed some fill as the 6ml in a 7ml band was no longer needed for my 65kg frame and I took a course of pariet to ease the inflammation of my esophagus. I'd suggest talking with your surgeon and let us know how you go!

    Weigh In Wednesday

    Hi everyone, I've been away busy with life - changing jobs and moving across the state. My waist line has suffered with huge fluctuations in my weight up and down and back up. I reached a really happy place at 63kg but with the absence of my busy exercise schedule I haven't maintained it and ballooned back up! Today I have made a strong commitment to do the things I love again including running and sports and to get my clothes fitting comfortably; they're really tight with the 4kg I've rediscovered. Here's to accountability, hardwork and determination !

    Hi everyone, sorry I've been quiet. Still no return of energy so no exercise or weighloss! I'm having a go at maintaining between 63-64kg which has been good considering I'm not exercising at all! I'm moving over the next few days so that'll keep me well exercised and I have a couple of dr appointments next week. Keep up the great work!!

    Life is a whirlwind

    Life has been a whirlwind for the past few months, so much has been happening in my personal and professional life and I feel as though tonight I have hit my limit and consequently I am channelling this anarchy into my blog for relief and your enjoyment or at least some night time reading. A few months ago I returned from my usual Saturday morning Step class absolutely exhausted, I went to bed and slept for 4 hours, woke up, ate and then returned to bed for another 4 hours, again woke up, ate and returned to bed for the night. Exhaustion. I eased up the exercise which has led to a complete absence of all physical activity as I just don't have the energy and have stopped calories completely until I see my doctor next week. 12 months of severe calorie deficiency has finally taken its toll. I really wanted to hit my ultimate goal of 60kg by now but that is on hold and I am maintaining at 63-64kg. The band and I are becoming increasingly less fond of each other and I am fed up with the dietary limitations and unpredictability so my fingers are crossed that a surgeon will agree to revise me for all sorts of reasons when I see him next week, fingers crossed! Work has been completely insane for the past few months as well which has substantially affected my functioning, now that Christmas holidays are here I am looking forward to establishing a new routine after I move to my new spot and become acquainted with my new town and workplace- got to find the gym. I am really struggling to find peace with my new body at 63-64kg, I'm already wanting to have my tummy and thighs done. No thanks to superficial, moronic, self indulged boys not men - one of whom told me I needed to lose weight from my legs! Something I already felt true and didn't need to be said! The plan is so see the doctor, get a revision - hopefully band to bypass in one, find my energy and get running again and get hot just to prove to these idiots. Then save for a new tummy!! Just be yourself; you are wonderful

    I'm back to 64kg but am struggling with extensive exhaustion. I've cut back the exercise and dramatically increased my calorie intake but not feeling better yet. Well done to you all, keep up the hard work. I look forward to rejoining you with the weight loss when my energy returns
  6. which closed groups are you in Goldilocks? I would prefer B2B if I can have it done in one but not sure if at 64kg it's an option? Would love to have a few names of who is doing this procedure. From what I've read B2 Sleevers do have a slower weight loss but now I'm within a few kgs of my goal it really is a maintenance tool unlike the band - my surgeon called it that as he didn't expect me to lose any more weight! Thanks for your support Goldilocks, I will be very eager to update you in a few weeks!
  7. Dr Talbot's next appointment was in March however, my surgeon has squeezed me in just before Christmas so the best case scenario will be that he agrees to revise me. If he declines I have an appointment with McDreamy the following day! I'll err on the side of caution, I'll be stoked to revise full stop!! I'll be worried just like everyone about the 3 month wait. I'll let you know how I go. A month to wait until I know!!
  8. oooh Kazbo if I could jump through the computer to hug you I would!!! Would Talbot do Band to Bypass in one? I know it's not the done thing but I'd prefer to go under once! Guess who I'll be calling tomorrow :-* :-*
  9. Thanks Kazbo!! I have booked into the Oclinic with Dr Taylor for a second opinion as I couldn't get a suitable appointment in Dubbo or Orange and I'm very hopeful he will weigh up the problems and decide to sleeve me, I really want it out!! And thanks to the others who shared their experiences and concerns I appreciate it
  10. Thanks Princess! Can you delete the whole thread please as I have found the surgeons who service this area? Thanks

    caught a glimpse of 61.5kg however due to exhaustion I was advised the ease up the training and eat more... well I'm seeing 62.7kg again today and having difficulty refocusing on my tight regime... look out 61kg then 60kg you should be scared because I'm coming for you...
  12. I'd go the sleeve in a heartbeat - I've asked my surgeon to revise me but he won't - I've been too successful.. As I said unfortunately it wasn't an option for me in the beginning. Had my gp referred me when I was 100kg then I may have been.

    moving to Orange-help please

    Katy, I'd love to know how you're going? I'm also moving from Broken Hill but to Bathurst and seeking a second opinion.. my surgeon is on the Central Coast but I can't see him until Feb due to moving and him taking 7 weeks leave so I'm looking for a surgeon in Orange!

    Big decision from band to sleeve! Eek

    Yes I'll be seeing him before Christmas, I'm living 1200km away at the moment! I noticed you're in Penrith, who is your surgeon? I'm moving to Oberon next year so Penrith isn't too far away Hopefully in the short time you've had the band there hasn't been too much scar tissue develop, definitely keep me posted with how you go. Thanks for your advice and kind replies to my post!
