    Well Done Deb! That's a fantastic effort!!! I had my second fill today, now 5mls in a 10 ml band. I have lost 14 kgs in the 8 weeks, not where I wanted to be, but all my own fault with hunger and snacking and very bad food choices. But new fill, new start. Hope others are going well. Bek I was really unify and still a post this fill, but I have heaps of restriction with the new fill, I hope it will sort it's self out soon, the hunger I mean

Mental health hospital, our builder broke he's arm while working and my little girl is sick and just clingy to me and coughing all night/ day. I had McDonald's for breakfast, hadn't had that in yrs!

I don't think I have lost more than a kilo this past 4 weeks, have app with Dr next wenesday, I so wanna be under 100kgs. I have had a thyroidectomy and haven't had my thyroid meds for the past 2 weeks, so that's not goi g to,help my weight loss journey. I so need to get to the drs and get more.

    Hey People, I'm feeling really good the past few days. I have made it to mashies! I'm trying to think of things to make, lucky my 13 month old enjoy some of my food to. I have lost 6kgs in 2 weeks, so feeling great. Have had a few comments about looking like I have lost weight, from people who don't know about the band so that's an added bonus! I'm loving the myFitness pal app. Still a bit sore in some of my wounds but not to serious. Just got back from a lovely walk I the sun with my little one, now some cooking. Hope everyone is havi g agreat day, Cark

    Hello Peops, First day back at work today, was actually not to bad. People who didn't know I hand been band said that I looked like I had lost weight, so that was a bit of a bonus. My port site hurts most at the moment, it does the strangest thing, it makes a clicking/flicking feeling when I bend over, anyone have that sensation?

    Oh coolness, I'll do the scan thing then! My wedding rings are close to falling off my finger! They might have to go into a draw until I lose most of my weight then get them resized!

    Beck that's fantastic! Great work. Glad ur feeling better too. I see Dr P. again on the 24th of October. I'm feeling better too, just port pain, it does this funny click pain if I bend over to. Funny strange feeling. I have lost only about 4kgs but I'm ok with that! I'm back to work this week on Thursday so that will be interesting.

    Thanks guys, I uped my food intake and feeling much better. Still uncomfortable, but better to be having more. I'm worried about tomorrow, heading to a BBQ and I'm sure people will notice my lack of stuffing my face like usual! Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement!

    Hey guys, I'm soooo hungry, I think? My tummy is rumbling all day, I have about 100mls up and go and am feeling that really bad hungry cramps 1 30mins to 1 hr later. I haven't been very adventurous with my liquids: water, up and go, cup of soup and some yoghurt and I'm day 4 today. I'm really over feeling the rumbling cramping pains, thinking of food, but to scared to try anything else. It feels like when u wake up really hungry, have a sip of water and tummy does the big sharp cramping protest (anyone know what I mean?) I constantly feel like that. I burp big burps, feel better for about 5 mins than the pain is back. I have been very teary and emotional, thinking I have done the wrong thing, I didn't want my life to interrupt by this thing. My husband keeps saying its only early days but I just worried I have do e the wrong thing!

    ok sorry another questions: its meant to hurt when you burp right, like something is strangling your chest? it does pass but only a few minutes later i have to burp again. sorry for all the questions.

    Hello Everyone. Well i am recovering nicely, although i do feel hungry i think? I have only had water up until now, so just trying some soup. I dont think im full yet have had about 50mls. I dont know if its hunger pain or pain from surgery?! I really confused. Surgery went well, was banded at 7pm, back in to room at 9pm, home today at 10am. Have only required panadol and heat packs, i took some de gas as well which has got things moving. Meet the lovely Beck. I forgot to get your phone number. I hope your trip back wasn't too painful. how is your shoulder tip pain going? Good luck to everyone left on the lift. I cant believe i have done this, im so hoping my life changes after this!! so looking forward to being a yummy mummy.
