    I was banded on 8 July...had my first fill (only 3ml) it was nothing...I was expecting it to hurt! Piece of cake! 12 weeks post op and almost 40lbs without a fill...looking forward to seeing what this little fill will do for me. BEST decision I have ever made....! Happy Friday fellow banders....

    I am 6 weeks post op....down 33 lbs. Have NOT had a fill yet, but have an appt on Tuesday. Kinda scared! The weight is still coming off but is slower now (without a fill)....! Wish me luck! Over this past weekend I ate a little more than I wanted....perhaps I do need a fill! Lisa

    This southern girl is from Biloxi, MS....but I live in the Boston area right now!!
  19. I agree with Hazelsbliss....! Own your own journey. Play by the rules your Dr lays out for you. The band is overlapped and sewn in place (at least mine is). Not as fragile as you would think. If there isn't a problem....don't look for one. Follow people who give great and positive advise. This forum really helped me. I am 4 week out now.....I have been weighing myself every day....my advice is...DON'T! I am going to start once a week. It can drive you crazy. With your success so far...you are doing something right! Follow the rules and keep up with what you are doing. Best of luck...you will succeed! Lisa
  20. Those around me who ask I say....."Made lifstyle changes"! I don't really feel like I owe anyone a reply, but if it's someone I like I offer that. But...I have told many people that I got a lap band! Someone asked me if I was sick...I told her the truth...LOL
  21. Popsicles was my saving grace...! A must have. Sugar Free of course.

    I bought the Premier Protein shakes at Sams. Individual servings...keep in fridge and toss in my bag for work. I drink one a day to make sure I get the protein in. These shakes are 160 Caolories, 1 gram sugar, 30 grams of protein and only 3 grams of fat! Great choice. The come in chocolate and vanilla. Lisa

    My Morning Rant...

    Carolinagirl.....I started watching your posts well before my banding (4 weeks ago) and feel like you have always given honest and great advice...which I appreciate. I have never counted calories.... I simply watch volume and quality of food. With that being said....the choices of what consists of my 1 cup meals is very good lean Protein and veggies. Try to always make good choices. AND...get my Water in. AND...I feel successful. Thanks again carolinagirl
