    Cindysmom (Ilene) got a reaction from 2muchfun in Fellow Bandsters!!!! Please Help   
    My Answer is for the last question: yes. you are over thinking. I suggest that you think about how much walking and exercising you are going to do.
    How excited you are that you have the lapband and are going to be sucessful with it.
    Didn't the office give you more information about fills, pre and post surgery rules? A relationship with your Dr is the most important thing.
    Relax. and good luck. no bread.

    Cindysmom (Ilene) got a reaction from Cazz in Band Pre Op Liquid Day 4   
    good luck to you momof2crazyboys and congrats on having the surgery. And for you Cazz. I am sure you will do fine. I am 2years 2 months out. I have been very sucessful. I know that my determination came from not wanting to be as I was, but wanting to be what I want. Does that make sense? I am old enough to die from my obestiy. I didn't want to die like that. I was dermined and NO ONE, NO HOW is or was going to get in between that. Can you see yourself doing that? feeling that way? Try hard. That lapband is not going to stop you eating the wrong food. But as a tool after several fills it will not let you over eat. It will not tell you what to eat. But if you have the lapband you should want to eat the right things.Why not.!!! This is a surgery, it is not a band aid. I hope that you will want to succeed more than eat the food that got you were you are in the first place.
    Following the rules, exercise, and wanting to get healthy, will get you to the finish line.I see you at the finish line, right along with me and thousands of others.Your whole life will change. I promise you.. With the band you can say adios to the bread, rice, soda, pasta, cookies, cake, sweets, (( arent those the ones that got you where you are?) Well adios to them. they are not your friends. Actually food is not your friend either. But we have to eat. After the band besure and find a support group. ask questions. I will be happy to help you if you would like. Just let me know.. lizybird@aol.com Best of luck

    Cindysmom (Ilene) got a reaction from kr8160311 in Doctor Said No Fill :-/   
    After 2 years 1 month and 89 lbs down. Doc refuses to give me fills also.
    Portion control and elimation of the above is truly the answer. The exercise you are doing is helping also. My fills cost $200.00. So it is just ok for me.
    The lapband is only a tool. If you continuously measure your food and don't cheat you will lose more. After a while it slows down. There are some that I know that have no fills at all. 12 lb is great for a month that is 2 lbs a week. I lost 5 lbs in 2 months. Focus on living your life, enjoying it day by day. Enjoy your exercise. Keep having a positive attitude. Find friends who have lapband and brainstorm.
    Think of the fun you will have watching the clothes you have in the closet go bye bye only to be replace by smaller sizes. DO NOT BE NERVOUS. HAVE GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP EVERY NIGHT.
