Green Zone???



It has been a while since I've posted. I just had another follow-up appointment yesterday, and I lost a whopping 7 lbs this month. My doctor said that is pretty borderline for what they look for in the green-zone, so he did a .5 cc fill and then set me for another 6-weeks instead of the usual monthly visit I have had since surgery.


I have lost a total of 30 lbs since I have started my journey. 6 before surgery and 24 since. It hasn't been real steady weight-loss yet, but at least it is in the right direction.


Praying this is the Green-Zone!!!

I now have 4.5 cc's and I have a 10 cc band. I'm not sure how most people 'know' they are in the green zone. I guess I'll know if my weight loss is steady each month and I am not hungry between meals?

godsgirlnky...I was banded 1/25 and my 3rd fill is schedule for next week. I'm also a 10cc band and I think I'm at 4cc. So NOT at the green zone. My weight loss has not been phenomenal in this second month...but my total weight loss is still above average than without the band. Can't wait for the fill next week cuz I'm hungry lots in between meals.

To answer your question Bear Lake....... I was banded on 12/27/11, so I am just three months into this. Chrissylu, I also still want to snack between meals. I do get 'hungry', but most of the time I have to have gone at least 4 or 5 hours without eating before I start really feeling it. The rest, I think, is just my mental hunger....LOL That's a little more difficult to tame, I think.

Thank you GermaineF....and I surely trying.

    • I believe in you I went through similar things I was 315 before I had my gastric sleeve surgery but I kept looking at all these bottles of medication I'm on and that what help me to do what I had to do ....
    • I love this! I am not buying anything either. When i was at my heaviest i bought a lot of beautiful clothes in much smaller sizes.. they have been sitting in my wardrobe for years, some of them. Now that i am finally on my way to fitting into them i am not buying a single thing until i know what actually suits me. All the clothes that fit me now i am getting rid of the second they are loose! I am saving a ton of money.. not buying so much food is also helping with that!
    • Sugar , nicotine, carb , I'm not a nice person. Self isolating!
    • I already planned to do some "lower"-carbing this week, though I may consider going ultra-low if I feel up to it
    • The "swelling" is from lymphedema. The PS interrupted your lymphatic drainage system And it takes a while for the body to "reconnect." And what you're experiencing with the compression gear is absolutely true! If you don't have the proper garment in place, it will cause worse swelling below the area due to the inability for that lymph fluid to drain. I wear my sleeve every day. If I don't, then my arm gets huge and if I don't wear my glove with it, then my hand turns into a balloon. I do feel better with it than without it. It gives a comfort/secure/structure feeling. LOL. So glad you are feeling better girlie!!! Oh also, you know me...biased low carber, but $10 bet says that if you ditched the high carb crap and went back to low carb, you would notice the end of your belly bloat starting in as little as 3-4 days and maybe a complete resolution of it in 2-3weeks. hehe. Sorry couldn't resist. You know me...always biased. TY for sharing your journey girlie!! You are so brave and have been a true warrior during this time!!
