  1. Yep I can relate to all of that. This is my second time round too after going from no restriction to landing in the emergency room. I guess persistence is the key. What is the consensus on drinking close to eating, my surgeon said not to, but the author of the 'eight golden rules' supports eating with your meal?
  2. Hey thanks I appreciate your encouragment, I was getting in to a spin and becoming increasingly frustrated. How did you find your 'groove' ...any helpful hints? There is a lot of conflicting info out there.
  3. I think I might be the first person to have actually put weight on post band... crazy crazy me I am back down now to my starting weight of close to a year ago. I seem to go from not feeling enough restriction to being too tight and unable to swallow my own saliva (not something I will forget easily). Has this happened to anyone else?
  4. Howdy, banded Sept 2011 and have been yo-yoing all over the place.... weight up/ weight down/ weight back up again etc and so on...but i just watched the 8 golden rules and had multiple massive light bulb moments! Better late than never I guess. I have been trying to continue eating the same post band as I did pre band. I thought I was a well educated intelligent gal... why on earth did i not get it through my thick head that the band isn't a miracle cure, but a helping hand in this journey. Has anyone else struggled to find the right groove in their weight loss journey AFTER getting the band?
