  2. You got that right!! At least we are not gaining. I feel like I am loosing inches tho. I have noticed a lot of my clothes are fitting loose the scale just isn't really reflecting it yet!! I just had my second fill last week. They told me it would take 3-4 fills before I really start seeing results! I hope thats true!!
  3. thank you!! :blushing: I find myself liking to excersise now! Gotta love that feeling
  4. My knees are doing a lot better! I just rested them a few days and they were good to go. I LOVE swimming and was just thinking to myself to look into water arobics. Too bad winter is around the corner bc my folks have a pool that I can use anytime but since its winter I have to find an indoor pool! That is great that you have the time to workout so much and good for you for sticking to it!! :blushing: I worked out yesterday on my wii fit with the new Jillian Michaels game. I LOVE it!
  5. Thanks girl! Yeah it is harder to workout as much as I want too bc I work fulltime BUT I make sure to get some type of workout in at least 5 times a day. My second week after surgery I fell and busted both knees so I couldn't do any walking for a few days. Then my third week I got a sinus infection, ear infection, and stomach bug all at once so that delayed my workout too. How are you liking zumba? I have thought about doing that too.
  6. Just curious of when everyone started really seeing the weight come off? I was banded on 9/20 and I have lost about 15 lbs since surgery? Is this about normal? I kind of thought it might be a little more. My surgeon said I am doing great. I just had my 2 fill last week and I feel a little restriction but not a lot. I am walking twice a week for 30-45 mins and doing a light workout 3 times a week for 30-45 mins. Doc said to give it about 8-10 weeks before bumping up the workout and that after about 4 fills I should start seeing more results. I'm just kind of confused on about how much you first loose and when you start really seeing it come off.
