Also would like to hear from those that are early post op. I am very excited to finally have the surgery book.

  6. Ha, so I just had a look and the last time I wrote a blog entry on here was July of last year! Yeah...I've been away far too long but since coming back here this week, I can't believe I stayed away so long! I'd forgotten how good it is to talk to other bandits and to have people who understand what you're going through and are actually supportive! So, quick update for anyone playing at home: It's been 16 months since my band operation, and despite some very slow progress, I have lost just over 40kg which is almost halfway to the 98kg I need to lose to reach goal. I've also returned to full time study this year, which has taken up most of my focus and sanity but overall is a good thing because I'm focussed on a new career that I absolutely love. I'm still ever the worst critic of myself, so as proud of myself as I am with my progress (and believe me, I am sooo proud), I can't help but feel a little disappointed that it's taken me 16 months to lose that weight. But my mantra at the moment is "It doesn't matter how slowly it comes off, as long as it stays off for good!" The wonderful thing is that I can actually tell I've lost weight, mostly through the fact that my clothes are all getting too big on me! My biggest problem has been getting the tension/tightness/adjustment of my band right. For most of this year, I've struggled with being able to eat properly, keeping food down etc. Being the self-saboteur that I am, I spent most of the year assuming it was just my fault, that I was either eating too quickly, not taking small enough bites etc. I even had my doctor take out fluid twice but my band was still inconsistent and getting almost unbearable in the last few weeks. So yesterday I went back to the surgeon, got another 0.5ml removed and suddenly it's like I've seen the light! Almost instantly, I could eat an entire meal (well a small serving but solid food all the same) without any problems. I ate chicken and broccoli curry with salad and a very small piece of naan (I tore a little piece off my nieces naan) without anything getting stuck. I almost wanted to cry I was just so happy! I also noticed that through my months and months of trying to fix myself, I've actually developed good habits in eating slowly and chewing well, which is a lovely by-product of all the stress I've had with my band. What's really been getting me down lately, is that with all my issues with my band being too tight, I haven't been able to enjoy the lovely healthy foods I love like fresh fruit, salad and meat. Now, I feel like Christmas has come early as I think about all the lovely, fresh, healthy meals I'm going to make. I know that this new freedom with food is going to mean I'm open to more temptation, but not being able to eat healthy, solid food has shown me how much I crave good food, so I hope that will help too. So that's me, 16 months on and after a year of struggle with my band, I finally feel like I'm back in the game and ready to tackle the next stage of my weight loss. I'm currently 119.5kg and my goal is to get under 100kg by the two year anniversary of my banding operation which is July). I'm also going to focus on toning up because my wobbly bits are getting too wobbly to bear now! I'm just a wee bit excited!

    Hi everyone Thought I would share my 12 month picture journey with you all. I'm roughly 10 kilograms from my ultimate goal, but I would be over the moon with half that! To celebrate my weight loss I bought a road bike on my bandiversary. My partner is a competitive cyclist so now I can join him on weekend rides. I'm sure these last few kilograms will melt off now that I'm riding Thanks to everyone for all your support and constructive posting over the last 12 months. You're all so inspiring! Happy digesting Caris
  8. 6-7 weeks post op Highest Weight: 108kg Current Weight: 92kg Total Loss: 16kg Highest BMI: 44.5 Current BMI: 37 Clothing Size: 16-18 and getting loose! Happy New Year everybody!! Well I just had the best New Year I've ever had. (Except the one when I met my fiance and lost my virginity...sssh!). We spent two nights down in Victor Harbour with friends who were visiting from Darwin and Perth. They have a pool, hot tub, sauna and tennis court at their place, so lets just say a fun time was had by all. There was cheese platters BBQs and LOTS of alcohol. Since I was fairly "good" over Christmas, I decided to let myself go for NYE, being good during the day (I had a pumpkin and feta salad for lunch), I indulged in the cheese and crackers, creamy pina coladas and a couple of handfuls of jelly shots! We left our son with his grandparents for the night so we could relax and have our first real night off as parents. We all dressed up in a "Bad Taste" theme, scouring the op shops for some terrible outfits. Had a lot of fun taking the piss and snapping funny photos. At some point during the evening we all ended up in the pool, I was so proud to wear my bathers this year, I'm a long way from a bikini body, but I didnt feel too self-conscious (may have been the alchohol) and my board shorts are way too big, they almost came off in the pool. We managed to squeeze 7 of us (two girls and 5 guys) into the small hot tub....and there were lots of roaming hands, which made for a laugh (nothing dirty). At some point during the evening, people were taking photos of the tower of jelly shots i had balanced between my boobs. So anyway, I really enjoyed myself. Probably a little too much. I'm avoiding the scales for a week, but I was 92kg yesterday morning, so I'm sticking with that for now. I had another pumpkin and feta salad for dinner last night, and baked beans this morning. Back on the bandwagon immediately and hopefully I can get off whatever I put on NYE in the next week before I weigh again. My next two mini goals: Crack the 80's in 3 weeks. Lose 4kg by the end of Jan so I can tick off 20kg lost. I am getting a fill to help me achieve this next Tuesday (as I realised exactly how much i CAN eat if I choose to). I think another ml or 2 could help. I'm going to get back to my morning walks, and try my hardest to be active during the day. I'd like to buy the dumbbells ive been wanting for weeks and start toning exercises for my arms. And Zumba start up again next week, which I'm really looking forward to. I also have to make appointments with employment agencies and hope that they can help me get a job ASAP. We have a wedding to plan this year and want to get our deposit together and start building our house. Busy year ahead. Goodluck everybody! xx Photo: Me and my fiance dressed up in our bad taste outfits.

    MUSHIES!!!

    Hello! I'm sitting on 96kg 2 week after surgery. I was 100.7kg on surgery day so I have lost 4.5kg in the last 2 weeks on my liquid phase. I'm a little bit nervous about starting mushies as I know my weight loss with stall for a while, so I might start my walking tomorrow (didnt make it yesterday or today). Hopefully that will keep things moving a bit. Trouble is it's been so HOT the last week or so and I hate being outside in the sun, I burn so easily. I'm going to have to get up super early and go whilst it'll still a bit cool. For my first mushy meal i took the stick blender to some left over Spag Bol, and it is HEAVENLY! I have been waiting for this for 4 weeks! haha. I remembered to have a drink before hand, and I am eating out of a toddler bowl, with a teaspoon and putting it down between (small) mouthfuls. I measured out just over half a cup which I have a feeling will be more than plenty as I am filling up quickly with each spoonful. Tonight as my hubby is coming home I'm making pan-fried fish, with soft pumpkin and cauliflower/broccoli cheese. All soft enough for me to eat as well
  10. 12 days post op Highest Weight: 108kg Current Weight: 96.5kg Highest BMI: 44.5 Current BMI: 39 Hello, Just checking in So its only a few more days til I reach the 2 week mark. My weight fluctuates slightly every time I check, but I'm approaching 96kg! Probably 96.5, really need to get digital scales so I can see the grams and stop guessing. My BMI is now under 40, yay! and I am now OBESE and not MORBIDLY OBESE. Double yay! Never thought I would be so happy to be called obese lol. The size 16 jeans I bought just last week are even becoming a little loose around the legs, although I have been wearing them for a few days now so maybe they are just stretched and need a wash to shrink them back I love my 3/4 jeans. I'm going to go back to Big W and get some more. I'm surviving just fine on the liquid phase, a normal menu for me at the moment would be: - Breakfast: cup of tea, then Optifast or Up'N'Go about an hour later - Lunch: Optifast, or Up'N'Go (alternating what I had for breakfast) - Dinner: 1/2 cup soup (this satisfies me just fine. I'm not needing more at this stage. - Snack: "Go Ghurt". Home-made icy pole from diet cordial or V8 juice. - Drinks: sipping water frequently. sometimes a diet cordial or cup of tea with skim milk and no sugar. It's a little bit weird to only be eating half cups at a time, but i'm using my toddler's bowls, so it looks like a normal serve I'm am looking forward to starting mushies in a couple of days, I'm going to make some Tuna Mornay for Wednesday night. I know what head hunger is now. Whenever I feel myself thinking about a sandwich or pasta for dinner, I make myself listen really hard to my body to see if the craving is coming from my tummy or my head. If I am genuinely feeling hungry between meals at the moment, a cup of tea or a little bit of yoghurt is satisfying enough, and all cravings disappear. I can also usually ignore them buy keeping busy, doing chores, reading a book etc. I was going to begin my walking again this morning, although as my son is in daycare, I've decided to take advantage of the quiet and clean house, and just relax with my book today. It feel really good. I think I'll go to Zumba this week, but just take it easy, maybe skip a few of the more taxing moves. Just to get back into things. I don't want to overdo it but I feel the sooner I get back into a bit of exercise the better WARNING, TMI: I still have my period, one that has lasted since I began the pre-op Optifast diet. Nearing its fourth week. Its really annoying, wish it would just disappear. I'm attributing it to the body shock and sudden weightloss. Hopefully it will sort itself out soon, otherwise I may take a trip to the GP to discuss it. I forgot to mention it at my 1 week checkup, but he's a man...just don't feel comfortable.
