    What exercises can I do?

    Thank you so much for your advice! I think my knees are good? I mean surprisingly for my weight, I'm actually pretty good with exercise. I will definitely try the rowing machine and the sitting down cycling machines! Thank you so much
  4. Hi All! I was banded in April 2017 and have so far lost 60kg. ( I have alot of weight to loose which is why the weight has come off alot faster than I thought) I've been doing slower exercises but I want to start a gym and do some more. I was wondering what kind of exercises should I avoid? I know that things like crunches and stuff isn't really recommended... Has anybody got any recommendations?

    Tips for faster weight loss!

    Hello! Oh wow I just saw this! How did it go?
  7. Hi guys. I was banded in April. It was a painful process as I am alot heavier than their usual patients but it went well. So far I've lost 25kg! I feel like this isn't really much considering how heavy I actually am. I was wondering if anybody had tips for faster weight loss ^^ Thank you

    Diet after surgery

    Hi Bertie! I'm currently in my fluid phase and honestly.. I thought it would be awful but it's been okay for me. I can't drink any protein shakes because they just make me sick . I usually have some hydralyte icepoles to keep up my "fluids". I've also been having Yakult, juice and have found some incredibly soups! Heinz Soup of the Day has helped me ALOT! They're ready to go and there's a range of flavors. I've also made some milkshakes using low fat skim milk and diet topping as well as some low fat icecream as recommended by my Dietitian when I'm feeling a bit low. So far so good.:)

    Hi Marie! It went well. I'm on my last week of fluids and cannot wait! I don't feel any different yet but I guess because I'm just coming off my medication lol. Oh you're with Dr Winnett too? He's incredible. I was extremely nervous and just by chatting to me he managed to calm me down and make me feel so comfortable. When are you due for your surgery?
  14. Hi all! I just had my Op on the 6th of April and I'm still in quite alot of pain. I'm extremely tender and doing any form of physical activity is painful - It is getting better day by day but sitting up is becoming a problem. How long does it usually take for the pain to go away? Also - since I'm on the fluid diet - have you guys got any tips for me as to what I should be drinking etc ? I'm already drinking stuff like Yakult and Apple juice and soup... any other suggestions for this stage? Also - how did you know you had enough fluids? What about the Puree stage? What did you guys have to eat during this stage?
  15. Wow! That sounds amazing. I definitely will be saving for my surgery. I'm extremely heavy so I know the excess skin will be... well excess! thank you everybody
