  1. Op shop for me...I lost 50kg in the first year...No chance i could simply afford new clothes every month
  2. I have a 10ml band since April 2011....However I was emptied in Emergency in April this year when I broke my upper back. So now back on the road to filling. Yesterday I had another fill...I was at 6.2ml and to loose, now I have 6.6ml...So had .4 in but I am strongly considering having .2 out....Cant eat at all....Not swallowing water well and constant slime ball in my throat. YUCK! I think 6.4ml would be my green zone...Off to Dr I might go! )

    Gall Stones

    I was rushed from work via ambulance in intolerable pain, after 2 days in hospital they took my gall bladder out, And my appendix for good measure lol. I am lucky that my lapband surgeon did it too )

    Is this a stuck moment?

    Ever since being banded I cannot eat tinned Tuna
  5. Hey All, Quick question....I have found after my latest fill I am not able to eat food until lunch time (ish) heading towards afternoon. I do not feel hungry either but if i do try and eat in the morning my body just rejects it. I have never been a breakfast person anyway but its strange now my band will just bring it up. I can eat well after 5pm however! Does anyone else find this? Or am I odd? lol.

    Weight Loss Stopped!

    Hey Guys ) I have not been on here in ages due to lack of Internets! However I am now feeling right at home again lol. So I started at 117.1 and got to 80kg and now I have stopped. I dont know what to do...Its just like all of a sudden I feel as tho I am failing ( How can i kick start this again and what have others done when they hit plateau. Im so worried I wont lose more now

    Wow...What a journey so far

    Well....I have not been on here in months! Nice to be back. So i started at 115kg in May now im down to 80kg! I simply cannot beleive it, i actually cried when i got on the scales this morning, still a way to go yet but its amazing ) I never thought i would be able to do this and i have. Reading thru everyones posts today has got me thinking i need to re-visit my exercise regeim also ) You are all an inspiration and honestly without online forums like this it would be much harder to do alone. Your all awesome!!!! xx

    Head hunger and winter

    Im so with you on this one!!! My head still wants to eat and be a pigglet but i just cant. I used ot be an inhaler of food lol so its a very hard habbit to break
  12. So i have not been able to eat pretty much any solid foods, even thick yoghurt since my last fill bout 2 weeks ago, incredibly painful and always came back up. However tonight i made seafod laksa and fo some reason it has stayed down! No pain, no PB nothing. Just brilliant! lol. HOWEVER i am concerned that its just all of a sudden this has happened..Has anyone else experienced this? I hate to think the worst but could i have slipped the band or stretched the pouch or anything? :blink:
