  1. Hello, I have not posted in a while, and have been wondering how the year has been going for everyone? I started this year with the same resolution as many many years before... To get healthier!!! Weighed in on Jan 1st at 369lbs. Started per op diet on Jan the 14th. Banded on Jan the 29th at 355lbs. Second fill today, 310lbs. I have had good and bad days...As all of us do. Everytime I have a bad day or rough time with the band, I log in and get insperation for everyone of you. You might not realize it, but all of you are helping myself and others by just posting good and bad experiances. I THANK ALL OF YOU...HAVE A GREAT YEAR!!!!!!'' Daron

    New guy here!

    Congrates,,,, I have my 2 month bandaversay the 29th of March, as of today, I have lost 51lbs including my 2 week diet. I did start heavier than you. There will be many ups and downs. I had to learn what actual hunger, vs. head hunger is. The surgery and all the helpful people on this site saved my life. I am much happier and full of energy. Can finally fit into a kayak again.....LOL,,,

    Contrats!!! Welcome to the beginning of your "new" life, I was banded 4 days ago, and it has been great. Daron
  5. Good evening all, I went nto surgery at 9:30AM yesterday..By noon, I was up walking and went to due my swallow (barium) test. All went well. I knew what to expect, by ready all others posts. I sipped and sipped. The worst pain was the gas pain in my chest and shoulder. The more I walked, the better it was. I came home around noon today. I cld not walk outdoors because of the high wind and rain, so I walked every room and hallway. The steps still hurt a little. I am so excited to be starting the "NEW" life. I want to thank everyone on this site for your help. You where right on. It helped with everything. Good luck to all the people being banded soon... Again, Thanks to everyone, Daron
  6. Good Luck,,,,I go in Tuesday morning... Very excited, but growing more nervous... Daron
  7. Hello, I am permitted 3 shakes, 2 Protein bars, and 2 bullion cubes a day. I am on day 3, and I'm not gonna lie. ITS HARD, It is getting a little easier each day, and I have not cheated. I have come to understand the differance between true hunger, and just wanting to eat. I have lost 4 lbs in 3 days, and as I set here eating my dinner (chicken bullion and snack bar) I am glad that I am doing this. Yes, to be healthier, but also to be able to enjoy life and what all it offers, I wish the very best to everyone on here. Have a great night. Daron

    January 2013 Bandsters Unite

    Hello, Day 1 of the 14 day diet is winding down. I do have a slight headache, but all else seems good, I have had two bariatic advantage shakes, and 1 bar so far. It all seemed fine until I came home and turned on the TV. The fast food commercials are killing me. I am craving something warm. I am permitted to have broth, but of course do not have any. Does anyone know if bullion cubes are ok? I keep telling myself why I am doing this, and that helps alot, Thanks, Daron
  9. After all the months and Dr. visits, my surgery date is Jan the 29th.. I am excited to start my new life.... Daron
