    Weigh In Wednesday

    Morning everyone, I have been missing in action but had to post today as I have reached my goal of 65kgs!!!!! I am soo happy with my decision to have the band, two weeks out from my surgery anniversary. It has been such a huge learning curve and I am still learning and making mistakes everyday, but now, I bounce back and get on with it. Funnily my band is quite loose at the moment, I have been eating more but making better choices. Just read everyone's post, all doing so well!!

    I am jumping in too. Although I haven't gained I'm not eating healthy and I don't feel well. I am also going to ban chocolate, I could eat it all day. I'll also be back on fitnesspal soon and I'm going to up my exercise

    band issues

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago. No stones but chronic inflammation. Had my gallbladder removed the same week as I couldn't eat anything. I feel so much better now and recovery was fairly easy. Let us know how you go

    Self funding

    I used my super and it was the best decision I have made for myself and my health. I now have top hospital cover in case anything goes wrong in the future. I was nine months off my ph kicking in when I made the decision to be banded but I still used my super as I wwas so sick and tired of bei g sick and tired. I know the sleeve can be a little more complex initially than band surgery. If I was you I would make an appointment and speak to a surgeon and take it from there. Good luck

    69.9, 2.4 loss this week. Finally in the 60's and 900gms away from hitting the healthy weight range. My big loss this week was due to fluid retention after op.
