    Hello Rach and Jess Boo, Congratulations on becoming bandits!. I hope you are feeling a little better each day!!! I am over the first week and feeling soooooo much better. It's those first few days that hurt hey? Anyway welcome to all the new members on this forum and best wishes to all you who have the upcoming op. Love LOU

    Hi Girls, Firstly i would like to apoligise for my comment on how i'm feeling post op-I certainly didn't mean to scare or worry the rest of you and i sincerly apoligise. Guess i was just a dumb blonde thinking that the surgury was a breeze and i'd be fine afterwards.I wish that someone had written on the blog about the pain afterwards though so I was a little more prepared besides the shoulder tip pain. Everyone of us has a different pain threshold so I guess i was just after some support cause i didn't know if what I was feeling was normal ??? So sorry once again i was very thoughtless of you others-good luck on your special day I will be thinking of you all.

    Hi Girls, haven't been on line since being banded but i was proud to read all of you doing well on Opti etc and great to hear all that have been banded are feeling ok! Well I wish I could say that i feel wonderful but that is far from the case. This is day 3 post op and i am so sore, cant move and really bruised. I knew that this wasn't going to be a walk in the park but OMG i am suffering!The surgeon put the port hole in my chest rather than on my side and it feels like i cant breath properly either. Each morning i wake I hope the pain will go but its still there.Is anyone else out there suffering? After having a 11 pound baby naturally i thought that i had a high pain threshold but i am unsure now! Any suggestions ???? Tish i am so sorry to hear what happened. I have one growing on my liver so i was worried about that but it all went ok -I think!

    Hey Jess When I first read that you were doing opti for more than 2weeks I thought wow you were keen and was so impressed with u! I am also impressed with all your gym work but as u have said I feel that by doing more strenuous exercise than a half hour walk u would defently need more calories per day.Your weight loss is impressive so far so well done in jealous !!! I was extremely strict and only had opti three times a day nothing else no food whatsoever and walked occasionally but I found the days I did walk was when I felt light headed and headaches occurred- so maybe cut back on your exercise and see if those headaches etc go-i am certainly no doctor but I know how bad I felt so i would give anything a go :-) hope this helps

    Hi Girls,good to hear you are all going well with your Optifast. I decided after a week to weigh myself and was happy to see a loss of 1.5 kg but then after reading your big losses of 3& 4 kilo I was bummed out but I guess any loss is a loss right??? JesseBoo - I agree with u about the Benefibre I am having double doses also and no number 2 action is happening lol! Plenty of trips to the loo for wees due to all this water we have to have but number 2's are a no show! Does anyone have one of the diet plates and if so do you find it helps? Have a great week everyone and keep going :-)

    Thanks so much for your reply Tish. I think you have the best dietician out there! Mine was soooo hopeless she was about 18 and had 3 of us in at the same time! Rach kindly sent me an email of your dietician stuff so i am really greatful to you both many thanks.Who is the company of Nutrichews eg blackmores,natures way,cenovis???Never had them in my life so i am ready to try a New Year and New Beginnings Look Out! I have to admit that i am addicted to this site and reading everyones questions and learning of there experiences-just makes me so excited(my fiance hates it that i am always on the computer doing things for ME!) lmao

    Hi Girls, Haven't been online for a while but i started my opi on the 1st Jan like some others have. The first day or two was a killer but i feel like i am finally on top of it (doesn't mean i have stopped craving my lollies or meat though). I am soooo constipated i feel like i am going to pop so starting benefibre first up this morning.I already feel healthier not skinner but i have exercised everyday so far and i think this is the key(Even though i hate it) i will get on the scales on Sunday when the first week is up and hope with all my might that i have lost SOMETHING!!! Does anyone know what vitamins we are suppose to buy? I read in the forum somewhere that we are suppose to have chewable ones??? Also girls i found Sustagen on sale for $20 a tin at Discount Drug Store the cheapest i have found yet if anyone is interested. I am struggling trying to drink all this water- I just cant seem to get through it all-any suggestions. As for the opti bars they taste like a cardboard box and as for the soups GAG that was sooooo grouse would rather starve than have that.Does anyone know where to get the knife fork and band book? Cleo- Congratulations honey i am sooo happy that all went well for you and that you love your band! Keep up the exellent feedback for us all-it just gets us excited! Rach- Thanks so much for emailing me the dietician info haven't had a min to read as yet but today i will. Casie - Guess your next up hey lucky girl 5 days and counting!Good Luck
