  1. My doc (whom I love, by the way) only gives a maximum fill of 1 cc every 4 weeks. I see people on this forum with only 2 fills and they are up to 8 cc's already. I had my fourth fill today, and I'm at 3.5 cc's on a 10 cc band. I wondering if anyone knows the advantages/disadvantages of quick fillings or slow and steady fills? I am very happy with the slow and steady approach. We discuss any foods that have given me a problem, weigh loss or gain, and any other questions before the fill. I am glad to say I have not had ANY PB's ever. I got banded 6/27/12. Thanks in advance!
  2. Ok, ok. Maybe a little dramatic, but I feel like I'm hungry All. The. Time. I eat about 1200 calories a day (I keep track on My Fitness Pal), and am pretty active. I get up at 4:30 a.m., and go to bed between 9 and 9:30 at night. I try to workout a couple times a week. I eat meals regularly. I've emailed and met wiht the nutritionist through my surgeon's office, and she says she promises I won't starve to death, but I'm miserable. I showed her what I was eating and she said it all looked great. We just discussed on Monday maybe shifting some of the food I eat to earlier in the day, but usually by 3 p.m., I'm ready to rip everyone's heads off from being crabby and hungry. I got banded 6/27/12, and have had 3 fills totalling 3.5 cc in a 10 cc band. Any suggestions? Thanks, all!
  3. I am apprehensive to ask for more than what he wants to give. After all, he is the doctor, and fills slow to avoid any problems. I am not in a hurry to lose the weight. I like that I have time to re-evaluate foods after a fill to see if I can still tolerate them. My husband had the surgery 2 months before me, and Doc is filling his band just as slow. Neither one of us has vomited or had pB's. And I'm happy about that!!
  4. I once had a co-worker tell me that I only hired fat people to make myself feel better. I still just shake my head at some people's stupidity.
