    Calling all A11s!!

    Phew I thought i was the only one. I have been so hungry and i feel like i can eat anything. I get my first fill on Fri the 30th and i'm looking forward to it. My weight loss was big the first week but has slowed to a crawl. I know I'm still healing but i was hoping that i could get down more in these first few months. Thanks for the positive messages....keeping my eye on the prize....good health.
  6. Thanks PJ! Your surg date will be here before you know it. Can't wait to welcome you to the loser's bench.

  7. Feel the swelling subsiding...clothes are fitting much better

  8. Delighted for you sounds like your on the right track and doing well keep it up and you will be in Onederland in no time Congrats and best wishes to you

  9. Hi, I started my "normal" food this past weeks at roughly two weeks post op per my Dr. I think I got "stuck" but instead of slimeing or whatever....i got uber nauseous. The food (meat), eventually went through and the feeling went away. I chewed it plenty, it was already in super small pieces to begin.Has this happened to anyone else? Just curious

    One week post op

    Congratulations! Welcome to the loser's bench. The port site will get better by the day, mine only hurts when I bump it or twist my tummy too quicky. Happy healing :-)
  11. Officially 1 week post op, got my staples out today! What a world of difference :-}

    Hang in there! It'll get better. The rumbling is most likely the gas. I had that, 5 days out its pretty much gone ...I think mostly because I'm moving as much as I can. I know everyone says that but it works. For the Water and diet, seems like everyone hears something different. I was told min of 64oz of water per day (Protein shakes, popsicles, Jello count too) and min 60 g of protein per day. So for my Protein Shakes that's 2.5 scoops. I sip constantly water or shake all day to stay hydrated. I totally get the sight n smells of yummy but bad food. I just remember it took me almost a year to get here and I'm not going back now!

    A question for the ladys

    Katyana is right. Our bodies store hormones in the fat we are all fighting to get rid of. Now that we are burning that aft for energy instead of using food as the primary source all those chemicals are being released into our system. Just like many suffers of PCOS see symptoms disappear others will notice changes to menses as well. Hang in there, your body will work through it and adjust to your new normal....as you will to the new you.
  14. Glad you're feeling better! Walk definitely helps, I was banded on 8/31. Been moving since to help work the gas out. Congrats to all my new fellow bandsters.
  15. I can home with one and I think does help with gas in addition to keeping lung s clear. If u have it use it! It does hurt initially to breath deeply but its important to prevent resp problems. Hang in there, it'll get better each day. :-)
