    Totally Grossed Out

    Removing the strips were the worst for me...and that was after two weeks...I remember I almost passed out! But I was fine once it was done!

    Gained 1 Lb!!!!!

    I weigh myself everyday and used to get upset like you are. It is okay. Our bodies are constantly changing. I gained 3 pounds this week, but last week I lost almost 10. Now, I will begin to worry if those 3 pounds have not come off in the next couple weeks, but until them as long as you know you are doing everything you are supposed to do, do not stress over it!

    What To Do After You Reach Goal?!

    I also was wondering this as I am getting pretty darn close, but I am still losing rapidly. I lost 9.6 pounds just last week...I do not want to have to problem of being underweight

    How Long I Need To Wait

    I was told at my 6 week appt that I could start ab exercises, but to take it easy. When I do them now, I can feel the port pulling and am sore after, so in my opinion, I would wait a little longer until you are healed more.

    No Fill Bandsters

    I am now almost 10 months out and still no fill. I feel like I am doing well without it and plan on holding off as long as I can. Last time I saw the surgeon, he told me he would see me again in 6 months!

    Worried A Lil' About My Port

    I expressed concern with my pain bothering me when I was working out...the only response I got was we can move it if it really starts to bother you. Mine is also starting to stick out...I still have like 20 more pounds to go, so I hope it does not stick out too bad.

    Ok, So Yeah...

    I stopped drinking protein shakes in the morning and the nutritionist told me I needed to. Crazy how everyone's medical staff is different...so I do have the protein shakes during the week and cereal on the weekends!
  13. I walked about 2 weeks after surgery and started resistance training 6 weeks after. I have not been to a gym yet, so I can not answer the question about the gym!

    I am a teacher at a high school. A student who gave me nothing but problems last year walked up to me today and shook my hand. I was like what is that for??? He said I want to say that you have done a good job losing weight and that I was not even sure it was you this year. It felt good to even have the kids recognize my hard work! I teach freshmen, so they do not know what I looked like last year. They think I have always been this size. 24 more pounds to go and I will be to my goal.
