    Hiccups after a fill!!!! OMG!!

    I've been banded a little over a year now, April 6,2009, and got just 3.6 cc's in my 10 cc band, and I've also noticed that when I eat too fast that I get the hiccups !! I thought I was the only one and often wondered what it meant ! They don't hurt in fact it I feel better after I hiccup for a few minutes. Good luck to you guys on your journey !!

    Glad to hear everyone is doing better, I'm snowed in with a 5 yr, and his 26 yr old Mom who is going stir crazy, an 11 yr old, who is wanting to go home but CAN'T b/c WE SNOWED IN AND CAN'T GET OUT !!!! Did I forget my DH, who has AAD ? OMG, Calgon, PLEASE take me away!!! We got around 11 or 12 inches of snow plus about a 1/2 inch of ice, and I know that for some of you that doesn't sound like much but we don't get that much here where I live and so it just messes every thing up when we do get it! Here's hopeing that it will be a better day tomorrow! Oh, Yeah, you guys really need to ck out BG new blog!! It is awesome!!! Jerseygirl, I really love country danceing!! Just don't go any more, but it is one of my faverite things to do!!

Trust me, these Bunnys are the best when it comes to helping and encourageing us! ~~~ WOW JT !!!! 100 pds lost!!! OMG!!! One of these days, I'll be able to say that I've lost that much!!

    HELP !!!!! I feel like I'm drowning here!! I feel like I take 1 step forward and 3 steps back!! Talk about self-sabotage, I am the Queen of it !! I have gained this wk and to make matters worse, I knew I would b/c of what I ate this wk but just did not care!! I know what my problem is and I know what I need to do. I have 2 grown daughters that are living together for the time being and they are the "new odd couple"! They are 2 TOTALLY different ppl, one is a clean freak and the other is a slob and they both have kids that are just like them. I tried to tell them that it would not work and once again Mom was right. Now they're fighting and I'm hearing it from both sides. The "slob" is looking for a place of her own but it takes time. Don't get me wrong, I love both of them dearly, but that's the problem I'm haveing and so this wk, I have ate EVERYTHING that even remotely looked good to me ( some that didn't look or tasted good!!). The solution to my problem is finding a way to channel my stress and frustration in a different direction than my mouth!! Jillian Michials suggests journaling everything that your feeling and eating and I'm going to try that and see if it helps. I have always covered up my feelings by eating and I know my grown children will always have thier problems, it is me that need to change the way I handle thier problems!! So today I'm going to put my feelings on paper ( And hope and pray none of them find it) and what I'm eating on paper, then I'll know what I'm eating when I feel like my world is falling apart. I'm sorry about spilling my guts out to you guys but that's what going on with me. I am really glad to see everyone is doing so well on thier weight loss this wk!! You guys do inspire me to keep on going!! If I didn't have LBT to come to, I probably would just give up and I really don't want to do that, I have given up way too many times and that's why I'm over weight today!!! Thanks for letting me vent!!! TTYL Sharon

    Good Morning gang!! Good news this morning, I'm down 1 pd!!! FINALLY !!! I had some hard days during the Christmas holidays, ate too much and ended up gaing over 5 pds!!! Went on the 5 day pouch test and lost the exrta pds and now this wk lost another pd. Hopeful and I have "sworn" off sugar so that is helping me stay on track!! My last splurge of candy was gummy worms on 12/31/09, although this wk has been tough b/c of not being able to go to work but I have been sucessful!!! I am going to get the book you guys are talking about and see if I can get a handle on this head hunger!! ~~~ WAHOOOO, Hopeful, Way to go on your 4 pds!!! OMG that is sooo good!! Stay away from Starbucks, keep your hand off the turn signal, go right past it on your way to work!!! Don't even think about stopping!!! ~~~ Heather, we have all, or almost all of us, been where you are now!! I did the 5 day pouch test, but I'm afraid it is too late for you to do that now b/c you have to be on liquids for 2 days and if you get a fill, you'll have to be on liquids. But the test helped me get back on track and I'm thinking about doing it maybe every 5 or 6 wks. I am going to ck out that book you were talking, I need to get a hold on my head hunger!! Try not to worry about going to face the Dr., we always imagine things worse than they are! :frown: ~~~ OMW, BG!!! I read on the Friday weigh ins, YOU ARE GOING INTO THE 60'S !!!!! I loved the 60's and the 160's also, never got to stay very long but had fun while I was there!! You are just AWESOME!!! WTG!!! :w00t: You guys have a good wk!!

    Friday Weigh Ins

    Good Morning gang, haven't been around here in a while, so I thought I would ck in to see how you guys are doing! As I thought , you guys are doing really good! I, on the other hand, have NOT!! But, I'm back in the saddle again. I was really bad thru the Christmas holidays, stress, to many goodies and head hunger, gained over 5 pds. But then BG suggested going on the 5 day pouch test, and I did. Lost the exta pds and then lost another pd this past wk. So that puts me at 181. While I was on th 5 day test, I really did some serious thinking as to why I am, again, failing myself on this journey. I am finding myself "happy" with weight that I've lost and not really giving it all that I can! I know that I can do sooo much more and need to lose alot more but my heart is just not in to it any more. So I am making an extra effort to exercise more and stick with the program of eating all my protein, drink all my water and no sugar products or carbs!! Thanks, Hopeful, for the challenge, still no sweet stuff!! But, anyway that has been my life, sorry for the long post but all this "stuff" just came pouring out!! You guys, have a good wk!!

    1/4/10 Holiday Facts

    Love, Love, Love your kitchen tools!! I collect old things like that, also!! Some one asked me if they needed a tetanuse shot before they came over! LOL In one of your other pics, did you have some old wooden thread spools on a table? I have some of those too. Things that I hated to use when I was a kid is, basically, what I collect now! Go figure!! LOL

    Bunny Bandsters - April '09, MASTER THREAD #1

    Good Morning, gang, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday!!! My DH and I went out for a while, but slept thru the new year!! ~~~Hopeful, I have already started my new year resolution, no sugar or flour. I took BG's advise and started the 5 day pouch test. Today is the soft protein day, ground turkey, cottage cheese, and things like that. I have to be honest with you, it has been tough, exspeacially the first 2 days!! Nothing but liquids!! But I made it thru them!! Last nite when we went out to eat, I ate blackened tilapia and sauteed mushrooms. NO HOT ROLLS and BUTTER!!! But I made it thru!!! :tt1: I have to confess now. I did ,finally, step back on the scales and I did have some tightness in my chest and tingeling in both my arms, my knees were shaking, but that was just by dragging them out, I hadn't even stepped on them yet!!! :crying: :scared2: I had gained 5.5 pds between the first of Dec. and Christmas!:w00t: :mad2: But when I weighed this a.m., I was down (drum roll, please!) 5 pds!! :thumbup: So right now I'm at 183!! :smile2: I know my ticker says 182 but I'm not going to change it b/c I'm ON MY WAY DOWN!!! As part of my new year resolution, I am going to walk on my treadmill EVERY DAY! I can always find an excuse not to walk but I have to stop doing that. When I got approved for this band , I made all kinds of promises to myself and as the months have gone by, I have been letting my old habits take over, again, but this is a new year and I am going to put myself first, again! I have to take notice of what I'm doing for myself and not just let life happen to me.:biggrin: So, this is a new year for ME and my new promises to ME!! :tongue2: See you guys next wk, have a good wkend!!!

    12/27/09 What A Gift!!!

    What a great Christmas present to yourself!! You are in complete control and I am sooo not!!! Can I come live with you for awhile!!! LOL I haven't even stepped on a scale in over 2 wks ( don't want to die of a heart attack!!) and I know that's a big NO NO for me, I need to know what I'm doing so I can stay on top of things and I'm too ashamed to find out but in the a.m. I will step on them and face my fears and get back on track!! I think I'll go back on my liquids for 48 hrs, like I had a fill, and then go on mushies for a day or 2, and get back to MOVEING !!!! Thanks for all you do to inspire the rest of us!! Sharon

    Bunny Bandsters - April '09, MASTER THREAD #1

    I was thinking of doing the same thing,only just with sugar, but the flour idea is a good one! I have been so bad, , this Christmas that Santa will NEVER forget how bad I've been so I have got to try to make it up to him and get back on track!!! So when do you want to start? Hopefully most of the left overs will be gone tomorrow and that will certainly help!!! :thumbup:

    Good Morning Gang!!! How are you guys doing? I'm doing o.k., didn't lose anything this wk. but didn't gain either!!! While I was awol, I went to the Dr. 2 times, one for a fill, he put in .3 cc's and the last time , 2 wks ago, he didn't put any in. I have to go back in March. He just won't do any more than .3 at a time. He wants us to relearn how to eat the right foods and not to depend on the band to do what we need to do by our self. I do have some restriction but not much and can eat ANYTHING!! I am trying to work myself up to 4 miles a day on the treadmill so that should help me get things moving faster! Well, you guys have a good wk and I'll be back next wk end!!
  24. Good Morning! Thanks for cking in on me! It means so much to know someone out there is thinking of me! We built an addition on to our house and when we tried to move the phone lines our self, to save some $, we really messed them up and then we had to wait on the phone co. to fix it. Then my computer got a virus and it took forever to get that fixed, but I'm back now and doing o.k. So far I've lost 54 pds, it's still coming off slow but that's the way my Dr. wants it. He will only put in 4 cc's in my 10 cc band, right now I have 2.6 cc in. I got a treadmill for Christmas, yes, I've already opened it up, lol, and useing it!! So I'm hopeing this will help me get the weight off faster!! Enough about me, I have got to tell you that from your pic, you are doing and looking awesome!!!! How much have you lost so far? What are you eating and how much are you exercising? Well, I need to go for now, again Thanks so much for asking about me, it means so much!! TTYL
