Ok so I have been stuck on the same weight for about 5 weeks and am starting to think that maybe I should switch to shakes for a bit, I know that we are not suppose to do this but I'm just wondering if anyone has dome similar??
I'm at 106kg and really want to be under 100 ASAP!!!! I feel like its never going to happen at the moment
For me personally it has been about gaining control, getting the old me back and CHEWING lol. you will definately need to chew. If you haven't already check out the golden rules under the FAQ section on this forum. They are a must.
I have just worked out what is going on, although I do notice the band varies at times, I was starting to think I had a slipped band so....I just looked up "slipped band" and some one suggested coke if you have food stuck. I did this and all of a sudden I felt food go down that I didn't even know was there, as I had trying thorwing up not long ago coz it didn't feel right. After 24hrs of worry and pain when I try to eat it has gone. So relieved.
I had an adjustmnet approx 2-3 weeks ago. I have a total of 6.3ml in my band. I thought this last appointment would put me in the green zone, however I found I still wasn't there, and at times would get hungry during the afternoon. BUT all of a sudden as of today when I eat I feel a pain in my chest and really can't eat much at all.
Is it possible that my band has suddently got tighter?? Is this normal??
thanks guys, I will take all your suggestions on board. A little scared about liking lap band related pages on facebook though, but i'll see if I can spy on on it. Not many people know about my bad.....
I think I'll try a protein bar that is low carb till my next appointmen or a banana (I'm fussy with bananas they have to be slighly green still and if they are not then I tend not to have a back up so protein bar it is).
I'm 7kg off being in double digits and I want to get there before my holiday in October!
I have been trying for years to loose weight. I'm finally losing it after being banded but no one but my hubbie seems to notice. I haven't lost heaps as yet, but surley people who I see regularly would notice a loss of 13kg!!!
