Christmas Banders

Recommended Posts

Great hurricane! We're on a par. I'm 16 kgs down with 5.7 in band. I've lost heaps after last two adjustments cos I couldn't eat for 3 days afterwards.......not great but seems to settle after that. Think I just have to be ultra careful to ONLY have thin fluids for first 3 days.

Amazingly not many people have noticed any change!! Am feeling great.

Thanks lmd. My starting weight was 109kgs now 93. Am exercising as much as I can but, due to work, can only manage a gym session 2 or 3 times a week. Try to walk dog or do wights other days. Good luck to you !

Girls you are doing amazingly!!! I have lost 14.7kg since my banding (I did not do optifast prior to op) and weighed 135.6 on banding day. I am very happy coz I havent seen 120kg on the scales for may years. I am not exercvising alot yet, a couple of walks, but that is definately easier than before. My family can notice changes in my face and back. I did not have a fill last time i went to the surgeon. So I have 5.5ml in a small band. I don't get hungry much so I am thinking this amount is OK, if any, just perhaps 0.2 ml more. Will see on Tuesday when I see DR. Does anyone know how to download the ticker??

Hi all

 

Feeling like I've reached a few milestones, with many more to come!

 

Weighed in for monday and what do you know, but I officially hit the 20kg lost mark! It seemed so far away precisely two months ago, yet it all feels too easy now :)

 

Yesterday I put on my expensive new runners and I walked, a good 9kms all up and I broke in those runners with a giant juicy blister on my heel to finish it off. My ankle is feeling it today, it's achey and my whole body is feeling it big time, but I'm just so proud for making the decision to forget about my injury being an excuse. I now know that I have no excuse not to make it to the gym as much as possible.

 

I'm sitting at 5mls, I had an extra 0.5ml on Saturday, and I sometimes find it strange seeing everyone else here and what they have in theirs, I am eating very very little right now and I think this is the green zone, in fact I have been struggling at the best of times. Two meals max a day, and whatever I have (usually fish) has to be cooked perfectly or its too tough to get down, but I'm also happy with where it's at, I feel like I'm getting the maximum benefit from it right now. 

 

It's really good reading everyone else's achievements, we are all doing so well and I'm sure we are all bound to continue in this path :)

Okay I'm glad things are going in the right direction for you now, um I've got an appt on 19/3 and they might give me a fill (my 1st one) as I'm sometimes peckish in the afternoon.  :)  :D

6.5 and no difference?! I just went back last week to have .3 taken out to bring it to 4.7 because I couldn't even swallow mashed potato! That's crazy LMD how different we can all be.

Finally I'm under 110kilos - 109.6  and I have my 2nd appt this Wednesday so i'll have to remember to ask what size etc and hopefully they'll put some fill in this time. I have sat between 110 - 111kilos for 6 weeks but my body shape was changing and adjusting so I still felt things were moving :D  I hope you are all going well and feeling great :)  :)
