    Any Long Island, NY Banders

    Hi all! I'm in Yaphank and was banded on March 24th 1020 in Riverhead by Dr. Paayal Mehta. I have lost about 74lbs so far. I love my surgeon and my band! :huh2:

    Couch to 5K ?

    I fluctuate between 3.5 and 4.0 for the walking and between 5.0 and 5.5 for running. I will be running my 3rd 5k on Halloween. Can't wait! I'm still only on week 3 of c25k. I got to week 4 day 2 but couldnt get past it and then I got sick and I didnt run for almost 2 weeks so I decided to go back a week. Yesterday, on my own, I ran for 10 minutes at 5.3 without stopping! :smile:

    SLIPPED BAND...It is a BIG DEAL!

    So they repaired your band? They didnt remove it? Ive always thought that they couldnt just repair it. That once it slipped it had to be removed and if a new band was to be placed it would have to wait a little while. I'm sorry your band slipped but happy for you that you didn't have to lose it, also!

    Couch to 5K ?

    I did week 4 Day 1 last night and it wasnt tough but not as tough as I thought it would be. In week 4 your start out with the usual 5 minute warm-up. Then you run for 3 minutes and walk for a minute and a half. Then you run for 5 minutes and then walk for 2 and a half minutes, run for 3 walk for 1:30, run for 5 then a 5 minute cool-down for a total of 31:30 minutes. I did my second 5k this past sunday and although my time was 28 seconds slower than my 1st 5k I am still very proud of myself. During my first 5k I had two of my friends and my sister running along side me, pushing me and cheering me on. This time I had my husband (who has never run in his life, except for maybe when they made him in gym class in high school and who also NEVER exercises and could have beat the pants off of me anyway :thumbdown: :thumbdown:) running along side me but I told him not to say much because he kept asking me if I was "OK" :rolleyes2: :thumbdown: and it got on my nerves quick! So I was the only one pushing me. And as we all know, when we don't have anyone pushing us besides ourselves it's so much easier to slow down or just walk. Don't get me wrong. I totally love my husband for being there for me and running with me but he's not good with the motivational words so it's best if he keeps the talking to a minimum when he's running with me. :thumbup: I'm running my 3rd 5k on October 2nd! :thumbdown:

    Couch to 5K ?

    I completed my first 5k on Saturday even though I'm only on week 3. I didn't do terribly. First of all, I finished and to me that's a feat in itself! My pace was 13:44 and I finished at 42:44. Last night I went to complete week 3 day 2 and during the second three minute run, about a minute and a half into it, I had to slow down. I'm still sore from Saturday. :thumbup:

    Labor Day Challenge

    I guess I was overly optimistic. I missed my goal by 5.1lbs :thumbup: Oh well...the inches are falling away so I'm still feeling good about my progress.

    Couch to 5K ?

    Tonight I start week 2 day one of c25k. I can't wait! I was never a runner and I thought I would always hate it but I'm starting to like it and I can't wait till I can run for long periods at a time. It feels good!

    Bodybugg users report here!

    Hey everyone! I just got an iPhone 4 and was looking for the bodybugg app on the apex website. Why did I think there was one that synce with the iphone to tell you your calories burned throughout the day? Was I wrong? Is it just to keep track of calories consumed? And where on the site is it? I could have sworn that I've seen it on the before but of course now that I have an iPhone I can't find it!

    Symptoms of an overfill?

    Definitely sounds like an over-fill to me. Make sure you both call your docs ASAP. You don't want to become dehydrated.

    How did you do it????

    Wellbutrin :biggrin: But I quit 2 1/2 years before my surgery
  19. She's a psychologist...not a surgeon or a nutritionist. Most of the people she sees for this, I would think, are all pre-op so she obviously doesn't know what she's talking about. She should stick to what she knows best. I figured I need to lose, all together, about 144 lbs to get to a healthy BMI. I've already lost 62lbs, still losing and I'm planning on getting every last pound of that 144lbs off!

    new lap band doc

    I saw Dr. Holover and wasn't happy with him or his staff. Whenever I called to ask questions I was treated as if I was bothering them, and I didnt call often. I was alone in my entire process. No one told me what I should do and when I should do it. I knew nothing about the process and no one did anything to help change that. Eventually I gave up and no one ever called me to catch up with me or ask why I hadnt come back after I had finished 90% of the tests I had to complete before surgery. They were receiving all of my results. Why weren't they wondering where I was and why they hadn't heard from me? Not one phone call. Dr. Holover is just another Dr. who sees dollar signs when he sees fat people. I ended up going to Dr. Paayal Mehta in Patchogue and from my 1st consult to surgery day it was 2 1/2 months. They helped me with EVERYTHING and I never once felt like I was a pest to any of them. Her staff is wonderful and Dr. Mehta is a patient, sweet woman. 2 days after surgery I was in a lot of pain and instead of shrugging me off and telling me it was normal they asked me to come to the office so I could be seen by Dr. Mehta. I love her and I am so happy my friend reccommended her. But...I hope you have/had a better experience with Dr. Holover and his staff. Lots of luck in your journey.
  22. I counted calories and walked A LOT! I stayed below 1000 calories a day.
