    Broccolli Slaw/ Stuck

    Poor thing! I can't eat any fiberous veggies ever! Even if they are cooked down to nothing I have to stick to green beans (only french style) cooked carrots and peas Nothing else works for me...not even if i peel them
  2. Just press down and all around your stomach you will be able to feel it in there! There is no mistaking it!

    It will be ok!!! It is so hard that's the reason we all got this to begin with, I had to have an unfill a few months back and it was so hard! I know exactly what you are going through, the hungry feeling is not fun at all!!! If I were you I would make sure to start and end every meal with fruits and veggies to help keep you feeling full longer. And just know even if you do gain you are going to get a revision soon and will lose it again!!! Hang in there! Sorry

    Stuck On A Number

    You got this one!!! Try thinking back to basics...no drinking 10 minutes before or for one hour after...whenever I get stuck I read through my old book they gave me at the hospital. You are going to be 199 before you know it!!! Good luck and keep us posted! PS YOU CAN!!!!
  7. I hit the gym today for the first time in a long time, any advise? I could only do the stair machine for 3 minutes lol...hopefully with this fill and the gym I could get these last pounds off... :)

  8. Just got a fill today...now I am up to 3cc's I am hoping this is a happy place for me! :) I have gained some weight after having the fluid removed...I am up 6 lbs, but am looking foward to getting it off again...back on track!

  9. 3 cc's removed and now I am a bottomless pitt! Yikes...looks like it is fill time for me

    5Cc In Band

    hello! My name is kelly too! I had 5 cc in my band and all I could keep down was mashed potatos and cereal lol I had 3 cc's removed and now I am a bottomless pitt...go figure! So I am going back for a fill but the doc said he is going to take it slow at .5 each time...I couldn't deal with the tight band for 18 monhs I did nothing but vomit (I finanlly went in and had it fixed)...hopefully you can find a happy medium too! If I were you I would stay away from anything with skin or anything fiberous like hard veggies or white meat. Good luck and keep me posted!

    Please Please Really Really Research This

    that sucks! I feel so bad, because you tried so hard...I have read a lot of stories about this, that the band is rejected by the persons body and is always too tight I wish you luck and pray that you can have it removed...maybe weight watchers can help you get back down or the gastric sleeve. I think that once you are able to live normally again without the vomiting you will be ready to go at the weight lose hard!!! I know how hard it is to try and lose when all you can eat is slider foods...it sucks!!! You got this girl!!! Good luck and keep us posted!!!

    Fill 'er Up!

    hello Good for you, because NEVER OVER FILL! I have had one fill and it is crazy! My doc put in 5.0 at once which brings me to a total of 5.5 because it stated off with .5. I have a band that holds 8cc. OMG!!! It is so tight...I vomit almost everyday, I am going to get some fluid removed, but have to wat awhile because my port flipped...just take it slow and CHEW CHEW CHEW!
