    I also think you are not in the green zone. I am definitely restricted, and it took me a loooong time to get there. I love my band so much now that it is working. Keep getting your fills. Once you are close, even .1 cc could get you there! My last fill was only .25 cc's. I am now at 8.75 in an 11 cc band, and I don't plan on having another fill anytime soon. There are only a few things I can't eat, like dense bread (pizza crust, pancakes) I also don't eat apple skins or anything that can't be chewed to almost nothing. Everything else is fine, eggs, salad, toast, etc... I know I'm in the green zone because I wouldn't want to be any looser, or any tighter.
    You'll get there!

    I've been banded and rebanded. (disconnected tubing) and now that mine is finally working how it should, I loooooove it. I'd do it again. The first four days are a little rough but that's what rest and pain medication are for. You'll do great!

    amberakamom got a reaction from Angelizz10 in Discomfort????   
    I had horrible pain for over a year. It was random and in different places. I even went to the er twice. I didn't get any answers until I moved and got a new surgeon. Turns out my tubing was disconnected from my port. Having the long tube floating all over is what caused the pain. I was re-banded in May and haven't had any pain since. Thank god! It was horrible.

    Losing fast is thrilling of course, but it's not realistic. I've decided as long as I'm not gaining, then I'm happy!

    There are absolutely a few bad apples in the bunch right now. I have thick skin, so they normally don't bother me. I feel they are the ones with the biggest issues, they just aren't letting on. Know whaty I mean. I think they are "leveling" which means trying to knock others down to their level of unhappiness. I try my best to treat everyone the way I want to be treated. Which also happens to be the biggest lesson I am always trying to teach my children. Maybe the "bad apples" were never taught that? On a public message board, its probably best to take everything with a grain of salt. For all we know we could be talking to a 70 pound 11 year old boy. Hehehe

    I'm finally getting to leave the hospital in about an hour. Just wanted to mention that I have had NO signs of hunger. Pretty cool. And walking really is best for the pain, even if its just a 2 minute walk. The rest of you going this month will do great! I am so thankful that its been a breeze so far.

    What ever you decide to eat after WLS is totally up to you, however why waste time and money if you continue to eat like you do now. Isnt that why we all were over weight to begin with. If you want to eat whatever you want then I would say dont have the surgery. Your whole goal is to learn how to eat healthy and eat smaller portions of healthy food then you will get where you want. If you dont then you wont lose one ounce.
