  1. If I'm correct I believe you would need a 12. When you go to buy them each pack has the sizing chart on the back

    What I Hate About The Band

    I'm sorry to tell you this but your band does not move at all it is stitched into place. If your band is moving then youve got issues
  3. Walk that is all that helped me. Gas x didn't do anything

    Mushie Phase

    I was told not to purée food by my doctor that you should stick to the foods that are generally mushie. He told me when you start pureeing food you think you can eat anything you can purée and there's a reason your on a specific diet.

    I was told microwaving anything changes it. My doctor says to avoid microwaving

    Afraid To Lose More Weight

    A true friend would be there to support you and not out you because they have a problem with your weightless. You need to do what is best for you and your true friends will be there by your side. If you think that they are just not educated on your new life and how the band works then educate them so there isn't anymore miscommunication.

    I totally agree it is a complete want situation. I have been overweight my whole life and I want this so bad I have changed my whole life not only for me but my husband and kids too. When I had surgery that was the end of me bringing any bad foods in the home, no cookies, candy, chips or anything, if there is no temptation then you won't eat it.
  9. I feel like you also. I hardly ever make it to 900 calories in a day, I exercise and am losing about 10 lbs a month. I do think about food but I have restriction and have from the beginning. I guess I don't worry so much about how much I'm eating but more about how healthy I'm eating

    In Pain - Help!

    The stuck feeling is more in the middle of your chest, not under the rib age for me

    Lap Bands And Fills

    I asked my surgeon and I have a 14cc band because my stomach is shorter and wider. He told me someone with a skinnier longer stomach would most likely get a 10 cc band.

    First Fill Today, My Progress!!

    Congrats. I know it seems like forever for me too but it is so worth it and slow and steady is the best way to lose weight. Your doing great
  13. I love that your always positive and uplifting and that is what so many of us especially in the early stages of the lap band need. Thank you for your inspiration.

    It wasn't until about a month out that I could sleep on my stomach but I used a body pillow and propped myself on the side.
