    heartburn and reflux

    have you read the book and has it worked for you. aggie
  5. I cant believe that it is nearly a year since banding, which for me it will be on the 22 feb. I have 1 kg to goal and I would have lost 23 kgs gone from 90kg to 67kg which is the doc goal but I would like to lose another 5 kg in the coming year and keep it off. I would have to say that it wasnt an easy year but a very challenging and rewarding one for me all my health issues are nearly all resolved and I have never felt better. I hope that your journey has also been rewarding. all the success to you all this coming year. talk soon. aggie

    whats happening out there

    I go to curves 5 times a week and I am just about to start swimming as well. do people who have had the lapband still try to do diets like shakes and all the other ones we used to do, because I dont I eat normal food I never want to be on a diet again. I have 8 kilos or 17lb to go to the goal weight that the doctor wants be to be which will make me 67kg but I would like to be 60kg that depends on what I look like at 67kg. have a great day, talk to you soon aggie
  11. Hi Bernette123, Are you losing inches, do you need another fill, I seem to lose a couple of kgs then I stop but I lose cm every month. just watch what you eat and keep excercising. Talk to your doc and the dietitian they will keep you on track. talk soon aggie
  12. I am from Australia aggie
  13. Hi Del30, I think it is the norm Im just a slow looser I have to work very hard for the weight to come off that is why I have started cardio 3 times a week as well as going to curves 5 days a week. the main thing is not to give up hope and keep going I have gone from a size 20 to size 14 who cares if the scales move slowly. I think by loosing more inches the skin is getting tighter. Talk to you soon aggie
  14. I was also banded on 22-08-08 and I also lost more cm than weight I have lost 30cm off my body and 14kgs which is 30lb I will be having my 4th fill on the 21-08-08 doctor said that he will put in 1/2 to 1cc. I have good restriction at the moment and he said that I should be right then I loose between 1/4 to 1/2 kilo a week doctor would like me to loose 1/2 to 1 kilo a week but I go to curves 5 days a week and have just stared doing cardio with weights 3 times a week. dont give up you are doing well. keep excercising and getting fills. talk to you soon. aggie

    I had my second fill last week and I only had restriction for a week. i still have not lost any weight but I have lost 21cm off my body spoke with dietitian and he advised to start walking as well as curves so that is the plan for this month. I go for my third fill on the 25th of june doctor thinks that the next one should do the trick I have 5 and 1/2 cc in there. I get so frustrated with it all. aggie
