    Slow Losers - Unite!

    I've just moved to a gated community so there's a pool and great places to ride my bike. We'll see if this helps:confused: I can only lose if I STARVE! or about 900 cals. a day. My Dr. says my matabolosm is screwed!:mad: I don't know what else to do. We go out with friends and I can only eat a few bites...home isn't much better...what do you all try?

    my first fill

    I was scared to death...but guess what? I did just fine! No fainting, I didn't gat queasy or nothing! My Dr. put in 1.5 cc's I didn't feel any diffrent for three day, and then it kicked in! I can't eat in the mornings, very little until about 3pm. But night is another story. I'm HUNGREY and I can eat a fair amount,so I have to be careful. I'm staying between 800-1000 cal. which is what my Dr. recommends foe me.

    Grieving for food loss?

    Hey Sultane! Don't be so hard on yourself! If you are like me and VERY sensitive to drugs, you are probably coming out of a morphine hight, which left me with a throbing headache for three days! Also I did not eat anything but liguids for 10 days. And yes, I mourn at least once a week for old habbits die hard! And YES we are ALL NUTS! Who wouldn't be. We have had more heartaches because of our weight than anyone, yet we crave the thing that made us so unhappy! And a DR. of PHYS. says we are normal! LOL Well Best of Health to you all! MB

    Had to get some taken out

    Hey! Iwas Banded Aug. 25th You all are doing GREAT! We are all truely diffrent when it comes to geting the right fill, but it is so encourageing to hear what others have experienced. My Dr. is on the causcious side too,but I think he is the greatest! I've only lost 25lbs. but I'm happy with that. I get my first fill on the 7th, so I'm hoping for another 25 in the next three months! just in time for some spring clothes:)
