    12cc in 14cc band

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I have not had a night cough yet but knowing I am pretty tight wanting to be prepared! It is very amazing how very different we all are! I barely felt any restriction until now. It's taken 8 months to get here and been a tad discouraging. Feeling as if I am the only one it won't work for...I know that's not the case at all. I just had a moment;)
  2. Just wondering for those 14cc bandsters where you found that perfect spot. Today is day 2. I am hoping this is mine...it's taken 8 months. Also anyone had night coughs and what is that?
  3. It's a good angle LOL and after I lost 40lbs! It's not a full profile tho! I am 5'8 ish and have quite a bit more to go! we will get there!!!
  4. OMG PJ... That is me! I lost the first 40 in the first two months!!! I have stayed the same since! I feel like my body likes this weight... It's what I would get down to before but then right back up! Lets be diligent together and help each other! We can do this and be those success stories too!!!
  5. Thank you that does make me feel better. How are you doing with 10.5?
  6. Than you Jim and Mis! I am very grateful to have kept off the 40lbs!!!
  7. I was banded on 2/14/13. I have worked out constantly since I got the band and tracked on my fitness pal every single day since! But I have only lost 40 lbs! I was getting pretty discouraged as I have never felt any issues! Getting stuck etc!!! I have a 14 cc band and get fills monthly. This past month I am finally starting to feel it!!! A little but and I am at 11.5 I think. Maybe just 11. I still don't feel much of a difference I do feel it most in the AM after sleeping and not eating or drinking all night... Is this common? Has it taken anyone this long to lose weight and get to the green zone? I sometimes feel like I am the only person this won't work on. ;( Who has a 14 cc band and how much Fluid do you have? I totally appreciate and love feedback! I need encouragement. Thanks!
  8. Happy 46th Birthday rcaruthie!

  9. Holy moly I think you have lost a ton of weight in 5 months! That's amazing!!! Good for you! How many calories do you eat a day? Do you exercise? Just wondering what keys to success you have learned and use! I am super impressed!
