    Almost a year

    I have an appointment next month and I just had one last week and I felt everything was fine even lost 8lbs for the month but today I was not getting enough of it the beans and meat was awesome tasting and I just had to have it...:redface: now I am sitting here feeling stuffed well not awful stuffed but I am content. Ugh this is making me wanna scream I feel really bad, crazy I know. I even gurggled some when some was going down but never got stuck omgosh...I hate to even think about it. Thanks for responding and not cutting my throat!

    Surgery and Aunt Flow

    Meeeee too started the morning of..don't put it off! They are not dealing with you lower than your tummu tum tum! Good luck!
  6. I think your right Jul what ever is comfortable with one's self, I know I have a friend that is the same way she weighs alot and could never do once a week!
  7. I guess it's not the top of my list, I have found that if i dont' worry about this life with the band and I think that is why 1.) I am a slow loser, and 2.) I am not stressed out and the weight is coming off steadily. I thought I was jinx'ing myself because just when I thought this was going to be the first month in 10 months I didn't lose, lord and behold get onthe scales and met my 8lbs this month! Try to do it just once a week and see if that helps with the stress and the weight loss you would be surprised....

    Realize band..

    I actually saw it around one of those little diagrams they have in the office you know the little stomachs? Well when I went to the appointment last week I looked over and I saw another one with the "realize" band and I tell ya our bands are alot wider! Which makes sense to lessening the chance of slippage although it still can happen, but it was nice to see what it looks like and no it was not in a triangler like most are claiming...

    Another Newbie

    Yea Juju and I am only the opposite, I don't get any remarks and I want them! I mean I know I have lost but the occasion hey you are looking good or I can really tell, so when I don't hear that it makes me feel like I am not going anywhere but the scale is still moving and I KNOW it so I try to satisfy myself with that. Even the 1lb loss I get so giddy and proud of myself. Maybe it's just me and me alone on my own who knows..

    Congrats! And good luck on your journey! I personally wished I had not told anyone only becasue my progress is slow and sometimes poeple have expectations but then days I say I just don't care what "others" think...
  24. Yes chicken is what gets me EVERYTIME!!! I tried the breaded kind and although it is a NO NO it does seems to go down rather than plain chicken breast, even dark meat gives me problems and it's juicier!

    Realize band..

    Hello Joann I had my surgery in Overland Park actually at the Weight loss Surgical Center. I am very pleased with the care I have had there, at first I was confused as to why I was not able to get restriction the nurse was going slow with my fills now I know why and am happy he did. I am at 8.7ccs and cannot eat breads and such which is good becasue I would eat it if I could. Now I can say I look at eating much different like you I have to plan what I am going to be able to eat even when going out. Mostly though we are stay at home eaters my hubby is from mexico and well he likes home cooked food but on occasion we do go out and there again I plan...good luck!
