    Energy Level

    I know you are right.... I just have to make that first move. No more excurses.
  7. I can't seem to get my act together with this exercise and even household chores. Everyday I get up ready to do some projects and it never happens. I get my protein in and I take vit. I have never heard anyone else complain about their energy level.
  8. know what you mean but I haven't gotten my journey on the near straight and narrow yet. I have had only one fill. 1cc. in a 11cc band. I still love the band because I haven't gained any weight. Day 48 -15 lbs including pre op diet. I am going to keep trying. Drink my Water count calories exercise get Protein We can do this. No I haven't been perfect but I do know my shortfalls. It is all about me, I can do better. Must luck to both of us.

    Steak is the only protein that I have experienced those incidents.
  11. I think it really is an individual thing. I have read some lost 8, 12, 15, or 20 pounds. Some exercised alot and some didn't.

    Finally Under 200Lbs

    I am so happy for you and I can not wait to join you.
  14. Today I had mu first fill. Everything went well. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I am very pleased with my doctor. The bad thing that came up is that I am not exercising. That has to change today. My treadmill is in my bedroom and I am going to get on it.

    First Fill

    Thanks for all the support. I don't have restriction yet. I am just what I know to do. I have an eleven cc band. My first fill was only 1 cc. I know all doctors do it differently. I didn't gain it overnight and I realize it is going to take a while for me to loose it.

    I Am Crying As I Write This...

    Huuuuugggggsssss! I think all women feel that way sometimes. Now take 5 mins. and cry. Then go wash your face and try it again. Think of how we are going to look and feel when we stay on the path of this journey. You are not alone.
