  1. :) TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY. I GET MY FIRST FILL AND IM HAPPY ABOUT IT , ITS WELL OVERDUE. MY SURGERY WAS JULY 13 AND SO FAR THEY KEEP CANCELING MY APPOINTMENTS. IM PRAYING ON MY STARS THAT THEY DONT CANCEL ME TOMORROW TOO. LOTS OF THINGS RUNNING THREW MY MIND THOUGHT, I HOPE IM NOT IN PAIN AFTERWARDS AND I HOPE THAT I HAVE ENOUGH RESTRICTION TO SEE SOME PROGRESS AND NOT BE HUNGRY ALL THE TIME. :smile::sneaky::w00t::sneaky::unsure:


  2. Im kinda think me getting the lap band instead of the gastric bypass for many reasons! The main reason is because I had it done at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit MI and there service and appointment scheduling is horrible. I didnt get my 2nd week checkup until my 6th week out of surgery. My doctor didnt give me a fill during surgery. My first fill was scheduled for September 18th and they cancelled it and moved it to October the 2nd. So instead of getting a fill 6 weeks out of surgery i wont be getting mine until Im 13 weeks out of surgery. I have already hit a pataue and if I could loose the weight on my own then I wouldnt have gotten the surgery. My surgery was July 13. I was 299 and im 269 now. I think if i would have just gotten the bypass then I wouldnt have to worry about appt. being canceled for fills.


  3. Well im not exercising as much as I could be since Ive started working. Im not really able to stick to a schedule do to work either as far as my eating goes. I try my hardes to limit my carbs to but its so hard with carbs being in a lot of the foods I have at home rite now. Im getting better with drinking my Water now and I can see a difference in my weight because the pounds I had picked up, have dropped off. So I guess I need to just plan my meals better and try the low carb diet or something. Thanks for the advice cuz i can take all support rite now.


  4. Help! I dont understand what im doing wrong. Am I failing my band or is my band failing me. I had my surgery July 13, 2009. Pre surgery Lost:thumbup: 15 lbs. Post surgery Ive:thumbup: lost 15 lbs. I dont get my first fill until September 18 because the the doctors office is so backed up.

    Any how I was doing really great at first, wasnt hungry at all. Didnt really have an appetite. Following the diet was great as far as the liquids phase goes. Then as soon as I started to eat regular food. I lost one pound one week and the next week I :scared2: gained 4 pounds and havent been able to get it off. What am I doing wrong?

    I Know I seem to be having a small issue with drinking while eating and getting enough fluids in but for the most part im doing ok. I dont go over 1,200 calories but some time have more than 80 grams of carbs in a day. Is that the problem? Im hungry before I should be after a meal. I dont want to fail my band but somethings definitely not going right.

    Someone please help me and give me some advice. I'm really freaking out about this.:rolleyes::cursing::unsure::cursing::glare::cursing::tt2::c ursing:
