  1. Happy 47th Birthday Rebrph!

  2. Happy 46th Birthday Rebrph!

  3. 3 years has passed since you registered at LapBandTalk! Happy 3rd Anniversary Rebrph!

  4. I know how you feel, I haven't told everyone, just friends and co-workers. This is probably going to sound strange but I haven't told my parents and I have been banded since 8/2008. I love them but they have never been very supporting in the weight loss area.

    Onederland Finally!!!

    I finally got to 100+ land. It has truly been a struggle at times. I was banded in August 2008 and have been slowly losing. In January I had my 4th fill and finally started losing steadily. I am so happy I finally got below 200 pounds. It has been a longtime since I have been here (17 years). I feel almost renewed now and I am ready to meet my next goal. Cindy:thumbup:

    Slow losers lol

    Hi everyone!!! I know how you feel about being a slow loser. I was banded in August 2008 and it has been slow going. In January I received my 4th fill. I finally found my sweet spot. I have been steadily loosing since then and I am pleased to announce I have finally gotten below 200 pounds. Just hang in there!!!! Cindy:thumbup:

    My journey

    August 2008 to April 2010
  9. hey there, Congrats on the amazing amount of weight loss! Thats great and I hope my surgery will be as successful. I also saw your post about how you got your first fill from a nurse in Tupelo MS and I was hoping that you could give me her info. I need my fill now, I've reached a plato at five weeks and I too had my band done in mexico. If you can give me that info I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much and congrats again! Sincerely, Shannon

    Should I skip my next fill

    I agree with brockbabe82, skip it and buy some new clothes....you deserve it!!!
  11. I have been reading this thread for awhile and I have questions for those of you who have been doing this a long time. Do you worry about not getting enough protein? I am still new at this and I have problems figuring out my protein. Thanks.
  12. Thanks for all of your helpful advice. I am going to step back and see if what my real problem is taking too big of a bite and not chewing correctly. It is so hard to stop doing something that you have been doing all of my life. I have always been a fast eater, shoveling every bite in. I will try the smaller bites and counting to 40 as I chew. Thanks again for all your advice.:smile:
  13. He is just overly worried, I think. I have been able to keep some things down, I did have some shrimp on vacation , but it just seems if the meat has to be chewed alot it doesn't get any smaller (for example, steak, pork of any kind and chicken that is not shredded already.) He is just now seeing me be restricted and is being overly worried. I have always been told that as long as I can get fluid down and eat some food that it is not too tight. I don't know what to believe now?
  14. I need help. I just had my second fill and for the first time I have restriction. I am starting to lose weight again but I am not able to eat like I was. I am happy with this but my husband is not. He seems to get upset when I can't eat regular food, we just got back from vacation and I must say, I threw up more than I ate. It has only been 9 days since my second fill and I am still getting use to this restriction. I am eating Soups and salads and Protein bars. I am having trouble with meat though and that really bothers him. Should I be worried about having trouble with meat?? As I lose weight won't the band loosen again?? Thanks for listening. Cindy

    foods to avoid

    I agree with the other posts, everyone is different. I just had my second fill and for the first time since surgery I have restriction. Prior to this fill I could eat pretty much anything except for ham and rice. Now I am having trouble with lots of things. It is almost like being in the mushie phase again for me. Bread and anything doughey is a big problem, but I think that is a good thing because I have better things that I should be eating. Good Luck!
