  1. I had my surgery last year in October. So, over 9 months ago. I have done great losing approximately 50 lbs. I had good restriction, etc. However, as soon as it got hot in the summer the restriction vanished. I have had two fills in the last two weeks, mind you, the only fills I have had since my surgery in October. Neither which have helped. I am going in again on Monday to get another fill. I am just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar? I am positive it is the heat. I now can eat anything and I miss the restriction. I know it is a matter of tweaking and finding my green zone, but want to get it back desperately and will strive to do so. I have at least another 50 lbs. to go and I will not stop until I achieve my goal, but just curious if anyone has had the same pitfall? Advice? Suggestions? Support? lol Thanks!

    Eating Samples!

    Newly banded and still on the mushy diet, still healing. I have lost between 16 & 18 lbs., depending on the day. I try not to weigh in but can't seem to help it. I'm more concerned about healing correctly now however for sure. Anyway, I would like to hear some samples of what you eat, preferably during restriction, in a day, Breakfast, lunch & dinner with amounts, etc. It will be awhile before I am able to get a fill, but would like to start gauging a little bit.

    October Bandsters!!!

    So glad you are doing well Q-Tee! I was banded last Thursday and quite frankly have been out of it since. I was hoping I would be feeling much better today. Don't get me wrong, I have improved but am not quite up to par yet. I still have quite a bit of pain, mostly in the port area and I just feel out of it. I am hoping I get feeling better soon. The surgery was smooth and the surgery team was amazing and I was so at ease. I do not regret anything. I'm looking forward to feeling better and eating some soft foods. I am not really hungry, but broth is not cutting it, not even my homeade broth . Maybe starting soft foods in a day or two will help! Lots of love~October Bandsters!

    October Bandsters!!!

    Surgery went well. I was very nauseous upon waking up. I can handle the pain, but not being nauseated. However the nausea stopped after my drive home. I don't think I handle anestesia very well. Anyway, had to be to the center by 9, surgery was suppose to be at 10, didn't start until 10:30. Was on the road home by 2:30. Came home and slept. I have gotten up and walked a lot which helps. I am taking the pain meds and nausea pills. But overall, doing fine. I have tolerated popsicles and just barely had a 1/2 c. of homeade chicken broth. It was delish, but not at all hungry yet. Hope all of you are well!

    October Bandsters!!!

    My surgery is tomorrow! I will call this afternoon to get my exact surgery time, but I am way excited. I thought I would be more nervous, but I am just so ready for positive change that, so far, I am more excited than nervous. For the last month, I have really taken a different approach to eating foods and am happy with my emotional progress, as well as physical progress. I am making a large pot of homeade chicken noodle Soup, so that I can drain the broth and have homeade broth instead of canned for the first little while, as I heard it tastes so much better. Then, the fam can eat the soup! Countdown! (Pre-op~lost 8 lbs.)

    Hi Q-Tee! I got your personal note and I have tried to write you back, but for some reason it won't let me. I haven't been able to figure it out. It let's me do others but not you~so sorry. I am so excited for you! Mine is coming right up as well, Oct.13!! I will keep working on trying to fix whatever is wrong with trying to message you. Having a hard time with it.

    Hi All! Just checking in! I have been on the pre-op diet for 6 days now and it is much easier than I anticipated. I haven't been hungry and I have lost 7 lbs. so far. I am so ready for this that I think I have just wrapped my head around it. I feel like I am already looking at food so differently. It is exciting to see everyone's surgery dates and surgery successes. I hope mine will be as smooth. Sometimes all you hear is the bad so I am excited to hear some positive things about the surgery! Good Luck All! To healthier bodies! 8 days and counting ~until surgery!

    That seems really strange from all of the reading and researching that I have done.

    October Bandsters!!!

    I will be having my "last meals" today! And, I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. I will be meeting with the doctor today, the dietician & having the pre-op class this evening. It is going to be a very busy day! I woke up this morning feeling as good about this as I have. I'm ready for change. I have researched lap band thoroughly. I have read 6 books in less than a month on the subject. I have read two that have helped me significantly, so I thought I would share. First, Fighting Weight, by Khaliah Ali, who discusses her journey, and Eat It Up!, by Connie Stapleton. She discusses, in detail, the emotional side of eating and finding balance in your life and tips post surgery. Just thought I'd share. I will post more throughout the pre-op diet! Thanks all! Wish me luck! lol
