    Fantastic Dondon, you have done really well. I'm a very slow looser but I am still a secret bandit so it's alot better doing it slowly. Good luck with those last few kilos.

    Another newbie :-)

    Def dont go with that surgeon if you don't feel 100% confident with him- he needs to be inspirational! You CAN do it though, we have all had many moments of self doubt and it is a slow and not easy journey but the alternative ? Now you have the basic info, look around for a different surgeon. People on here will recommend theirs if you let us know where you live. Don't rush into it but as a 50 something I can tell you it is one of my better decisions in life and has probably extended my life too. To start to feel good about yourself is amazing.

    Lynn- we are pretty much at the same place. I'm currently 79kg and want to get to 70 which will be the lowest I have been for 15 yrs. don't want to go lower as I agree, over 50 and too thin is not a good look. I will be more than happy at 70kg which will be 28 kg lost ( started at 98).

    Hi all, it's been a while because the site wouldnt let me log in etc! I have just had 4 weeks of leave and went to Thailand for 2.5 weeks and guess what- I lost 2 kg. My theory is- it is due to the change in daily routine and not focussing on food all the time. I went from breakfast to dinner most days, sometimes with a light snack but my day was not dictated by meal times and I think that is the clue. Drank heaps of cocktails which I though might inc my weight but it didnt! I am only at 5ml in 10ml band but in green zone so I am sticking to this forever now! I have lost 2/3 to my goal weight and have just tipped in to the 70s since around year 2000. Since I have come back from hols, everyone is commenting on my weight and also my tan! Feeling very good and am trying to go to gym twice a week but cannot afford PT anymore. So my advise to you all is- go to a hot country for a good holiday/change your routine/eat diff food. I'm really hoping I dont put any back on !!!

    I have been stuck at this weight now for so long I'm beginning to think this is it for me which annoys be because I could have lost this much on any weight loss program. Only thing is I know I won't put it all back on this time. I'm hoping to loose a little weight on hols as its too hot to eat much and maybe that will motivate me! When I get back ill slowly get my band topped back up. I had hoped to be alot less by now but am eating a fair bit to be honest.

    It seems like we have all hit that plateau now where we just go up and down a little bit but no significant movement. Mine is def head hunger at night Lori as I know I can't really be hungry. I'm getting 1 ml removed in 3 weeks for my holiday taking me back to 4 ml. I want to enjoy my holiday without worrying about what I can eat. Off to Thailand so I won't have soup and shakes as a standby !

    They must get later as the day goes on! I go early morning and pretty much walk straight in.

    Hi all, hope everyone is well. Not much movement in the weight dept, only about 1kg in a month. Had another 0.1 mls removed last week as I had been choosing only soft foods and if you don't do the chewing you don't get the band working properly. I was just terrified of food getting stuck. Eating a bit more solid foods this week. Going to gym twice a week, once with personal trainer which is exy at $50 for 30 mins but he forces me to do stuff. I would prefer not to go but I have to. Take care everyone x

    Good to hear from you Lori in Tassie. Sometimes I feel as if I have just gone back to pre banding behaviour. Today I went to the gym with the PT and nearly threw up - had to have a break. Then I did a good walk with the dog and was feeling good about myself. So what do I do tonight ? Have two glasses of wine, cashews, cheese, choc and now I feel awful. I can get through the day on next to nothing and eat for Australia all night - nothing has changed. It's not stomach hunger, it's my old bad habit of eating at night coming back

    Hi Dondon, yes maybe increase your hours as boredom can lead to snacking as we know ! To be honest, I haven't lost much weight at all in the last few weeks, I go up and down a kilo but I'm hardly being a saint. Not done much at the gym but I think it has to be better than nothing. I'm opposite to you as I work full time and its full on so I'm always too tired. Wish there was a happy medium.! I need too loose another 10 kg to get to my goal and I think it could possibly take me about 6 months or more at the rate I'm going now. Funny thing is yesterday two people asked me if I'd lost more weight as my face looks thinner!

    For the first time in my 55 years I went to a gym! I told the trainer I would be a challenge but it wasn't too bad at all. Feel a new level of motivation coming on!

    Girls, I finally went to the gym, first time ever. Only 30 mins but had a personal trainer to help me! I know this will be the only way I can move my weight as I am stuck at the same weight I have been for weeks.( not being very good snack wise).

    Congrats Kate, fantastic news! Lori, I can't put a picture either as I'm a secret bandit and you never know who may be on here! I'm off for my check up tomorrow. I am in the Green Zone and only eat because I have to eat at fixed times due to work otherwise I can go for several hours without food as long as I am busy. Don't think I've lost any weight recently which isn't really surprising
