    No I do not have a planet fitness by me, I have never heard of it before. I swear by Leslie Sansone and her walk away the lbs. Lately I have been doing a 2 mile brisk aerobic walk with cardio that she has on demand from my local cable provider. It is refreshing it counts down in the corner so you can see how fast it is to really walk 2 miles in your home.:thumbup:

    Most individuals wont reach restriction til about 6 or 7 cc's. I have more restriction in the morning then I do at night. I am only at 4cc's

    Thats great down 20 lbs! I lost 22! the fill doesnt hurt. I dont know about you but some places numb the area, my Dr.'s office doesnt and it took two tries to get it but I was out of there in 10 minutes. My Dr puts in 4 cc's the first time, then not sure how many the next, but we go in every 4 weeks for a fill! Goodluck!

    I wasnt worried or nervous about it hurting. I have 19 tattoo's and I am not afraid of needles. The Dr was like obviously not since I see yoru tattoos after saying are you nervous about the big needle. It was amusing.Glad you are doing well. The fitness center where my bariatric surgeon is cost 52 monthly or 37 monthly depending on if you want restricted hours or not. This is basically the discount for bariatric patients I will talk about it at support group on monday. Ill try and get some insight on some of this. Im excited 22 lbs in one month, the Dr said that most people gain weight before a fill and was so happy that I lost 6 lbs since my last appointment. Well I am off to sleep my port sight is a little sore from the fill today, she had to poke around a little,

    On My Way To My Journey

    I have been using one a day womens Multivitamin and I cut the caplet in half before I take it. So far it doesnt taste bad and it goes down quick. I know some chewable vitamins can leave a gross taste in your mouth.:thumbup:

    No it was weird though. I had to do a crunch and the Dr found the port. Then drew a circle around the port and got the needle ready. THe dr didnt get it on the first try but I ended up with 4cc's Im happy. liquids today softs tomorrow and then regular on friday. Not to bad I go back may 10th to get another one! It is a little sore now.

    Yay so I had my first fill today, and it wasnt bad. Although a little difficult getting the port on the first try. I have lost 6 more lbs!!!!!! Im down 22 since one week pre op. So 22 lbs in a little over a month isnt bad. THey put 4cc's in my band which is cool, I go back in 4 weeks for another one. I cant wait. Today is liquids, tomorrow is soft foods and Ill be back on my full diet friday. :cool:

    Help...i have an obsession

    I dont own a scale, just cause I know I will become obsessed with it.However I do eventually want to get one. I go in for my first fill today in an hour and I am anxious to see my weight loss total. I know if it is not much I will tend to be a little upset but I know it is something.:cool:

    I have some restriction, its not to bad. I just wish I was at my sweet spot already. I am very active even though I hate to work out. I do a lot of at home exercises and it all gets to be the same routine. I would like to get out and join the gym, but financially right now I can not afford a gym membership. I will update again tomorrow on my first fill and how it goes also my weightloss/gain progress since one week after surgery. I hope its not bad.:cool:

    Its great that you have no regained. I dont have a scale at my home so I am not sure of my weight loss. I go in for a weigh in and fill tomorrow. I can not wait to see what I have lost if I have lost anymore. I have been working out everyday and I dont know if that is enough. I want the weight to be falling off and I know that wont happen till I reach my sweet spot. I can eat more then I should be able to and when I stop eating I am hungry still. I am taking in the amount of protein that I should be taking in, I dont know. I am not eating what I am not suppose to. I have no had bread, pasta, or rice since before surgery and my pre op diet. I just dont know what I am doing wrong. I wish i could afford to go to the gym.:eek:

    Problem throwing away food

    I dont think I have ever really had a problem with throwing away food. I tend to no eat leftovers anyway, it is a waste I know, but I cook something I know my husband and I will deff eat. Lately I am getting a little better with leftovers because fish is expensive and I have been eating a lot of fish in the last month.

    Menstruation After Surgery

    Yeah my doctor made me stop all medications except my anxiety meds. The hospital even said they would make me take out my nuva ring. I dont know I guess everyone is just different. My period when I have the nuva ring is like 3 days and so lite. But when I was off the nuva ring after surgery the period I got before I put it back in was the WORST I have ever had. 5 days of hemorraging (sp?) pretty much cramps and everything and I have been menstrating since I was 8 and it was always the same till that one week after surgery.:thumbup:

    Menstruation After Surgery

    I didnt have that problem, I had mine the week before surgery and I was on the nuva ring and it was the week it was out. the dr said to not out it in for three weeks because of blood clot risk. I then I got my period and it was the total opposite as it was before, super heavy. But I waited till the sunday after I started my period and put my ring back and now I am back to normal.

    I do still have restriction and if I dont feel full know when to stop eating tho, or else I get stuck. As for the BM's I have had normal ones for me... I wasnt normal before surgery at all. Since surgery I have been going regularly like everyone is suppose to. I will keep everyone posted.:thumbup:

    I am still here!!!! I check in every once in awhile.. Not many conversations going on so I just keep quiet. I I go in for my first fill on wednesday, yay! I know I can eat more then I should be able too, but Im not just cause i dont want to gain anything.. I am taking in an adequate amount of protein and Im still hungry. Although, this morning I am actually not to hungry. I had a carnation instant breakfast with skim milk the no sugar added kind, and Im feeling good. Ive been doing these 2 mile leslie sansone heart healthy aerobic/cardio walk.:confused: Hope everyone is feeling this good.
  17. I am doing everything right, working out and eating right. Getting the right amount of Protein in too. But this dang thing wont shrink. I think I am losing weight everywhere but my spare tire. I have went down in areas around my back because I have had to more the clasps on my bras tighter, my face loos alot better then it use to... Im starting to get frustrated.. I do sit ups, squats and crunches@@@!!! Anything elsee.. WHat are your remedies?:thumbup:
  18. Thanks, Iam doing lots of cardio. I actually just finished a 2 mile leslie Sansone heart healthy cardio aerobic 2 mile walk and I love the way it makes me feel afterwards.
  19. Thakns everyone again for your input. I just have to lear that it had only been 1 month since I have been banded and I know I am just all rush rush rush.

  24. Thanks for all of the replies and answers. I know it will take a long time to get rid of. I just hope that it is not permenant. I was heavy when I was younger but then I was at a healthy BMI and I only weighed 120 lbs. Unfortunately that was still heavy for my height. I have never really been at a normal weight for my height. I also did the unhealthy eating disorder way of losing weight when I was still in my teens. This is Karma's way of getting back at me. I gained 80 lbs during my pregnancy, even tho I worked all day on my feel moving around, and ate right. My son will be 2 on the 23rd of this month so it will be my 2 years being heavy.. bouncing weight from 209-180 and back. My highest weight is 209 one week before surgery, then 200 day of and 194 on my week post op. I go in for a fill next wednesday!
  25. that stinks, I am at the beginning of my weight loss and if it wasnt for my pouch, I would fit into smaller clothing.. it is getting in the way@
