    Why am I fat ?

    Thank you so much for this!! Number 4 is so my life at the moment and I've woken up this morning with the mentality to keep strong and power on. I'll be having a go at this tonight, so thanks.

    I went out for lunch with my mates the other week to Hans and had the pad thai (never had it before and thought it was a rice dish!) I nearly died when it came out it was friggen MASSIVE!!!! Then I ate some and I barely made a dent in it and I was sitting there saying to my friend this waitress is going to think I'm nuts coz she's going to think I didn't eat any!! Luckily for me, my other mate hoovered alot of the rest up so my plate looked normal in the end!! Haha. CUB

    Hunger signs

    My real hunger signal is chest pain. It comes on suddenly and is alleviated when I eat. I get it in the early mornings (3-5am) and when I haven't eaten for over a few hours. I too am beginning to see that I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner because of a clock and I'm currently trying to remedy that! I wasn't hungry before I went to work the other day and I went about an hour before my chest pain kicked in so that was annoying because I couldn't have anything right there and then!! So it's hard not eating when the brain says it's time to! My hunger is different everyday though. Yesterday I didn't want my porridge until 10am then lunch I was hungry at 12pm so only 2 hours and porridge normally lasts me hours, so it's hard to tell when ya stomach is gonna want to be fed!! Hope this helps! CUB

    Hi, I'm Introducing myself.

    They won't stop you from having your surgery. They know you will possibly lose lots of Opti, it's kind of the point really. You'll be right mate! Don't stress!

    Im so over this . I want it out!!!

    I'm so bummed this has happened to you! It'll all be okay, it sounds like it's too tight. Once that gets fixed up you'll be fine. It must be so hard for you, I hope it gets resolved asap. Don't give up, this will be the best thing you've ever done for yourself!! xox

    I had mine today too, it was a breeze, sorry to say Kelz!! Very full, haven't had very much but can keep it down just fine 11kgs down, happy, happy, joy, joy. Hope you are more settled tomorrow and can eat more.
  9. Hey Kids, Where to start? Ha!! I'm nearly 5 weeks post op and am having my first fill this Wednesday halle-fucken-lujah!! Scuse my french but I'm hanging out for my fill, even though I'm paranoid that my port has flipped!!!!! I've lost in total 10kgs, which is certainly nothing to sneeze at but Easter was like the freakin DEVIL!!!! Seriously, I have learnt now that having special occasions is for me, a bad idea. My body loves sugar too much to indulge in things like chocolate and lollies so from now on I'm just not going there!! I get hungry alot, I'm eating more than I should be to satisfy the hunger, obviously it's not alot compared to what I used to be able to eat but still, it's not good. I'm not eating slow enough and that's pissing me off abit. It's really hard especially when around others to eat slowly. Need to come up with some kind of strategy. Sometimes I'm just so hungry when I finally eat that I scoff it down. Bad Cub, bad, bad CUB!!!!! Anyways I'm sure alot of others have faced this, I feel like abit of a failure at the moment. I'm just craving sugar something chronic. My sister introduced me to a natural supplement to curb sugar cravings, she has IR too and says they really help so, I'm going to give them a try. I've had one hairy moment so far, had dinner with the fam... bbq with sausages, rissoles, salad etc. Rissoles were very dry and I had abit of a "stuck" moment. I probably didn't experience full tilt stuckness. It wasn't as bad as I imagined, I suppose the worst bit was that I felt abit awkward with all these people around. I tried to sip some water but that just wasn't going to do anything but make it worse so I went to the toilet where I burped and swallowed and burped and swallowed for about 10-15 mins I reckon and it just subsided. I thought about chucking twice but I didn't coz I was embarrassed haha it was a very strange thing! Anyways, looking forward to my fill, hopefully at the very least it makes me slow down! I know I need to it's just a really bad habit to break! On a positive note, people are starting to notice my weightloss and my clothes are getting too big for me. I've lost over 10 cms each from my waist, abdomen and hips so it's made a huge difference!! I can't wait to lose more! I'm also currently obsessed with cheese. I love it! Strange child I am. Lots o' Love, CUB

    I'm a huge fan of that quote. It's the quote I used as to why I decided to try being a nanny in America. It's inspiring for sure. Good on you! CUB
  11. Hey Kids, This topic has probably come up before, I tried searching it but I can't find anything about it Does anyone wake up during the night/early morning with chest pain? It's happened now a few times since banding and it's something that wakes me up and keeps me awake for a small time. I have to sit up in bed for a few minutes and it seems to subside. My band is empty so I don't get why this happens. I'm seeing my surgeon next week for my first fill and I'll ask him about it but I just wanted to know if others suffered the same?? Thanks in advance, Cub
  12. Thank goodness for that!! Phew! Have a wonderful Easter )
  13. 10kgs gone. Whoooopieeee!!

  14. You must be terrified! I'm so sorry to hear this. Remember the power of positive thinking. If it is cancer you will have the love and support of those around you and with that you'll find the strength you need. Heres hoping they turn out to be benign cysts. I'll be thinking of you.
