    Sad but hopeful

    Thanks fericito!! I am feeling very emotional and so very sad!! I also have a few friends that have been banded and have had been successful. I feel horrible about myself because I told my friends and family about my surgery and now I feel like such a failure because the weight loss is not that noticeable to them, but I feel it in my clothes. I felt like if I told my friends and family I would feel more motivated to be successful. I just need to start fresh and be a little more serious about my diet!!

    Sad but hopeful

    I am also sad, but hopeful! I went for a fill today. I am 7 months post op and had only lost 25lbs. When I went today I had gained 8 back. I have a 10cc band and have 51/2cc in my band. I recently had 6cc and had way too much restriction and they took some out. I am now working my way tighter slowly. My doctor was a little discouraged that my weight loss was not more. He said that sometimes the band does not work for everyone. I left the appointment feeling like a failure. He said if you have a positive outlook it can still work. i guess it is good to hear others who have had the same issues. I really want to be successful at this!!! I guess the weight I have lost is weight that would have taken me forever or never to loose without the band. Good Luck and keep working at it!!! We can do this!!!
  4. Help!! I am not doing very well with my band!!! The holidays did not go well. I gained 5 pounds. I had my band in june and I have only lost 30 lbs. I admit my exercise has not been the best, but I am sad with my results. I am just feeling like a failure today!! I need to get back on the band wagon and get my self in gear!!!!.

  5. Me Too how are you doing? Things are going well here started mushies yesterday!!
  6. I like chicken, black beans and a little low sodium V8 juice in the blender with some mexican spices. I tastes like chicken tortilla soup or black bean dip. It looks gross, but tastes good. I am still on pureed and graduating to softs as of today.

    Port Location???

    My port is below my breast in the middle of my stomach. I had my surgery 8 days ago and it is still sore. It is in a bad place for an underwire bra. my pot is about an 1/2 below the incision.

    My dr. also said no bread! He said it will easily get stuck. He also said no straw because you suck in extra air when drinking with a straw and it will add gas to your belly and you will have disomfort.

    3Rd Day.....

    Yes!! I am also having trouble sleeping. I am up every couple of hours and I am not sure why? I am not in that much pain!! I was wondering if the pain meds had anything to do with it? What pain meds are you taking if any?
