I got the Chewable Gas-X and it was AMAZING, and something to chew on It seriously worked well for me. I think all of us have been there, thinking "WHAT DID WE DO" but now that I'm over a month out, I feel like it was totally worth it. Just keep taking it a day at a time and it will get so much better.
I was banded yesterday. And anyone who tells you that it isn't going to be hard is a liar. But it's something that I think anyone can benifit from if you work hard at it. It isn't a miracle cure by any means, but it will make things so easy for you. I lost 57lbs pre op, and that was hard. I can't tell you how many times i went to bed hungy because I knew that I'd had all the food I needed for the day. But with this tool I can eat half that and be full. I don't think the diet will be too hard to follow because I've been following it for 6 months already. Cravings don't seem to go away. I was laying in my bed yesterday right after the surgery and the nurse at the desk was eating chocolates ... I REALLY wanted one But in 6 months when I lose another 50lbs and I see how great life is .. I won't want that chocolate. I think anyone who has this can lose the weight, but you have to really want it. It isn't going to do all the work. Suck it up and change yourself now. I know it's hard but it will be one of the best things you ever did for yourself.
