    Labor Day Challenge

    ok...so this is prob not a ? i should ask on this thread.... but what is everyone doing to keep the weight loss steady...fitness wise.
  8. Im at 10cc right now. I go for my 4th fill tomorrow. I think im almost there but i can still definetly eat more than 4oz. I hope i dont get too tight. I experience tightness when i eat and smtimes i experience the tightness with water. But there are sometimes I feel like i can eat and eat and eat. I too would like someone to explain in detail what the 'sweet spot' is all about. am I there and just dont know it? I know that sounds dumb but.. really am I?

    Juarez MX info

    Try the Surgical Center of Ft Worth. Its off Pipeline in Hurst. I go there and everything is done with flouro. :biggrin: The nurses that do the fills there are great and have all been banded as well. They know what they are doing and are always willing to help. Im from Juarez and with all the violence going on over there... I wouldnt go in trying to look for a doctor to do a fill. Try the Surgical Center. Best of luck to ya!
  12. WOW!! I feel so far behind :thumbup: I was banded on 5/6/2010 and hv only lost 18lbs. I have had 2 fills and am now at 7.4 ccs in a 14 cc band. thats abit discouraging. BUT im not gonna give up and neither can you! :smile2:We are all in this together. I agree with the others. Get back on the scale and get back on track TODAY. :smile2: Thats the beauty of the band... It will start working with you as long as you work with it! :smile2: Im alsmot at my sweet spot. I cant wait for this weight to start falling off. Hang in there. Message me if I can help in anyway :biggrin:

    No Restriction???????????

    I just had my 2nd fill. i am now at 7.4 ccs in a 14cc band! Thats alot! And here I am with little restriction. I feel a lil different. but I hv friends that have been banded for much longer than I have and they are barely in the 6.somethings (4or 5th fills.) Im hoping that this will take me to my sweet spot. Im praying that this restriction I feel will last forever!!! LOL I cant beleive im this high up in the CCs dept and hv little restriction. (I have my next fill on 6/30... and looks like I might need it!):sigh: hang in there. Im 5.5 weeks out and down only 12lbs. :thumbup: i know it sounds good but i really thought i would hv lost more by now. Living in Bandster Hell! I just pray im not a permanent resident:cursing: -bel
