    Well I had my first fill today. Turns out I had 1.5ml in anyway and Jason Winnett removed that and replaced it with 3.6ml. Had a drink of water and all good. No issues at all. He told me the sooner you get back on solids, the quicker you lose weight, so I came home and tried a Salada cracker with cheese with no problems at all! Hoping it's going to go well as there's nothing I found yet that I can't eat, albeit smaller portions. Don;t want to count my chickens too early, but it would be wonderful if the weight started coming off again with no food issues.... I'd started to get really hungry again and was worried I was eating too much. Anyway, time will tell from tomorrow! Good news is I've lost just over 11kg so going well! God, I wish I'd done this 20 years ago!!! I LOVE my band...!!!!

    Sleevers - What Did You Eat Today?

    Have a drink Nessa! I believe the idea with the no drink is that it washes the food down easier so you don;t get the benefit of feeling full. If you already feel stuffd and that the food is sitting there, I can't imagine you pigging out afterwards anyway. Also, they reckon this 'no drinking' idea has now been found to be unnecessary! Did your surgeon tell you not to drink? I know many still do so obviously better to do as they say.... I'm sure they wouldn't want you to be uncomfortable though!

    What are your hobbies?

    Like you MrsSlim... Cooking! Always loved it - mainly meals for friends. Will need to make some changes there!!! Not really into baking but love cooking.

    Hey LBA! Go to the Arts Centre in Watton Street, Werribee. They have a group that you can join there and it's supposed to be great!

    Hey! I hope that's a good omen for me! I seriously am starting to get hungry and put 1lb on this morning (really need to stop weighing myself daily!) I'm glad you've told your sister. It's a good support mechanism for you. I also told a close friend at the weekend and she's really happy that I'm happy, so that's good. Looks like the redness on the cut has gone down too, so fingers crossed it was a one off. I might call Jason;s office and ask if I can come in next week instead. Reading some people's posts here, they've had two fills before my date for my first's even up!!! Doesn't sound right...

    I don;t have my first fill until 23rd July ad I am getting hungry. Like you MrsSlim, my weight loss has stalled, although I know I'm losing size. Looking forward to getting the fill so I can see the scales go down again.. One of the sites seems to be inflamed or at least is very red around the area. It's almost at my belly button but doesn't seem infected as such. Will keep my eye on it....

    I also take Elevit, but there are two types - one for pregnant women and one just for women, which is the one I take...

    Hi Bigmama My BMI was 31 and I was operated on by the fabulous Jason Winnett from Williamstown. He operates at the Western Private. Good luck!
