    Wheres My June Bandsters??

    Hi all! I had my surgery June 26 and my first fill (5cc's) on August 6. I'm down 27 pounds and I'm pretty happy about it! I got a little careless before my fill, as I had no restriction and could eat pretty much anything. I have some restriction now and I'm trying harder to stay strict with what I'm eating. How are all you other June bandsters doing?

    I definitely went though that! I thought for sure that I was the only one, but I did what you did and posted here. This forum is amazing! I had my surgery on 6/26 and it was about day 4 that it hit me like a ton of bricks. My issue was me coming to terms that I have a food addiction and it hit me that I was saying goodbye to that part of my life. You're doing the best thing though, you're talking about it with people who understand. You don't have to go through it alone, we're all in this together. Posting and reading here helped me the most, and I'm also reading a few books about food addiction. I'm still sad, but the support here tells me I CAN do this, and so can YOU! Shed your tears if you need to, this is tough, but don't give up, and take comfort that we are all here for each other.

    I'm on day 3 also jdmart7. My gas is better today, but my port soreness is definitely worse. The abdominal binder that the hospital gave me really helps though. I haven't been hungry at all until today and like you I've gained a couple pounds. Strange. I'm just trying to get myself through this knowing that this is only a few days for a healthier life. We're getting there!

    Oh, TreehouseLady, that's gotta be rough! Keep your chin up, we're all in this together!
  5. Looks like I'll be bringing up the rear here! My surgery is 6/26. I have to do a liver shrinking diet for 10-14 days pre-op, and then a complete clear liquid diet for 2 days pre-op. I'm so ready for this!
