Looking for May Bandsters



Recommended Posts

You are doing fantastic! But I know its hard when you exercise so hard.....

I was banded 5/26 and have 7.25cc in a 10cc band and another fill scheduled for today. I have some restriction, especially if I don't chew well or eat too fast, but I can definitely eat more than 1c at a time and I am hungry every 2 1/2 - 3 hours (I think its hunger; I'm working on that).

My weight loss has slowed down significantly in the last month. But I attribute that to less exercise (lost motivation). I was working out 60-90 minutes a day 5-6 days a week. Now? kind of nothing. (A little here and there but can't even log it).

I'd love to get less hungry less often and I'm hoping this fill is the charm. This is fill #3.

Good luck to you.

I was banded may 11th

Hi! I am wondering if there is anyone that has a May date set. I know my surgery should be in May but no set date.

So just went for my follow up (at week 21) and am disappointed that I haven't lost any weight in 4 weeks! I have not gained which is great but, with all the hard work, it is very frustrating when the scale hasn't changed. I know this is a process and a lifelong commitment but I want all this weight off yesterday! The doctor was able to give me a fill and I have 8 cc in my 14 cc band now. Hopefully that will help. It didn't help, of course, that I haven't been able to exercise in 2 weeks because I broke my toe! Is this what they call bandster hell??? :smile:

I think I would call this a plateau. I didnt lose weight for 3 weeks but I just kept pushing and pushing and pushing and the weight started coming off again! You can do it!

Thanks for the support! I am actually at week 17 not 21....see how I rush things! :smile: Anyway, back to the gym tomorrow, my broken toe feels better and even if I do the recumbent bike, at least I am doing something. I bet by my next appointment I will be headed in the right direction!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
