    Falling back into old habits...support needed

    I love Wendy's frosties! I will try it thanks!
  3. I was banded a year ago and have done well, I am down to 152.6. The problem is that I am getting into the ice cream cycle again. I not too tight but my brain really likes it. I am trying to log my food again but am having a hard time exercising. I did well when I logged on here regularly and participated, so I'm back. Any words of wisdom or encouragement would be appreciated.

    Too tight vs stuck episode vs who knows

    I had all the fluid removed and I am so much better. I have another appt in 2 weeks and will have some fluid put back in then. I feel so much better.

    Thanks it always helps to have another perspective!
  7. Ok here's the story. I was banded Aug 6 and am down 27 lbs. I went for 1 st fill one month after surgery and didn't need it because I was doing good. About a week after that I was hungry more and got 2 cc put in. I did okay but wasn't losing. Went back in at next appt which was a 1.5 weeks ago and had 2 more cc put in. Since then I have had the pb for the first time ever every night. I had chicken get stuck so bad yesterday that I vomited. Today I can swallow but...water hurts. I am thinking clears for a couple of days, 1 cc fluid removal Tuesday (my day off). Any other thoughts?

    I love it. I cant wait to check everything on my phone and computer. You will be making a good investment.
  13. Had my first fill Friday and it was easy. Little poke and that was it. No worries.

    Am I the only one?

    Got my fill of 2 cc today and I can tell. Dr thinks that I have lost so much weight in abdomen that the fat around the band shrunk causing me to need a fill. Fill was easy and hardly and discomfort. Thanks for everyone's input.

    Got my fitbit flex today and can't stop playing with it. I think it will be a very helpful tool. My Dr said she has one too and loves it. So glad I saw this thread otherwise would have never heard of it!
