  2. Just got my computer back. Took forever. Still not fixed right. Hope to get better at posting onthispage so bare with me. Damn space bar is busted. I could use a few friends in here so drop me a line.
  3. Thanks for the words of encouragement. I think I am leaning towards having a tighter band. I have noticed that I am starting to be able to eat little bit more that I should. I am going to make an appointment to get an adjustment. I am very happy that I chose the band over the bypass. This was just the push in the right direction that i needed to get to a better life. I talk to people that say they would never do this because they enjoy food. I enjoy food now more than ever. I eat only the best. I get to taste every bite. Not just inhale what is in front of me. I am tasting food now better than I was before surgery. This site is going to be another great tool for me. Getting to talk to people that are in my shoes will be great.
  4. So I got banded on May 17Th. I am down about 70 lbs and feeling great. I had the surgery just North of Boston at Lahey Clinic and they were awesome. Best hospital experience ever. At first I had my doubts because they were not a huge Boston Hospital but I quickly learned that they are just as good if not better. Anyways. For the past 4 months I have been really working with my band and trying to figure out what I can and cannot do. I have noticed that I am having a hard time staying consistent with my eating habits. I haven't really been weighing my food and I am wondering if i am heading down the wrong path. I am still eating so much less than I was. Basically a chicken breast some veggies and some brown rice. I just get nervous sometimes that I am doing it wrong. That's just me. I have also noticed that I am able to tolerate most things that other band patients cannot, like Pasta. Or every once and awhile a piece of bread. Basically I am just a little concerned that I am being a little to lazy with the great tool that I have. I am still losing weight and and feel great. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the info. I am still trying to find the best way to get my fluids. I am gonna do that shot glass trick. I thought I had everything down before i had the surgery but when it was all done it all kinda flew outta the window. I am glad I found this site. Nice to be able to ask questions and get answers from people that have had the procedure.

    This is my third day with the LAP-BAND®. Just trying to make sure i take in enough fluids. Anyone have any pointers on how much is enough. I havent really reached the point of feeling full and I don't feel like getting sick. Any info would help. Thanks.
