  1. Had a couple of small surgeries lately. Had to have fill out both times. . It is the anaesthetists decision. Hopefully you won't need to.

    Weight gain

    Nearly 3 years in - serious head hunger every day, a battle every day. But think I am slowly winning . I too have gained and lost the kilos. Grazing all day does it for me. My new rule is no snacking at all, have a drink, walk, clean my teeth (find that works well). I also get bad shoulder pain if i overeat. The main thing i tell myself is this is not a diet, this is the rest of my life - and its pretty good - Best Wishes

    Gas pain

    Had heaps of gas pain, found the only thing that worked for me was lots of walking. Best wishes

    what happens when your at your ideal weight

    My first meeting with Dr about band. I asked about band removal - he said almost 100% off patients who have there band removed will gain all if not more of their weight loss. Which to me makes sense as we have all lost and gained weight pre band. Two years in - want to loose another 6-7kgs, pretty sure my band can stay as is when I get there, but can always do a little tweaking if necessary - Best wishes

    Absolutely - but most of the time its my head that is hungry!
  9. If my willpower was that good i wouldn't have a problem. I am definitely an all or nothing person. Nothing is working just fine .

    Breakfast - Who has it?

    Agree - Band very tight in the morning and loosens during the day. For me a coffee (or two) is usually enough most mornings.
