I was banded March 29th and had my first post-op and fill yesterday. However, my doctor put a fill in during surgery so technically this is 2nd fill but first one I was awake for. haha!

When I weighed yesterday, I am down 22 pounds from when I came home from the hospital so I'm really happy with that. I want to be down 15 pounds before next fill. LOTS and LOTS of walking when I get home from work and jogging on the treadmill at home. I don't feel comfortable enough jogging outside...think people will think I have lost my mind trying to jog.

Since the first of the year though, I am down 55 pounds.

Keep up the great work...best birthday present I've ever gotten. (I was banded day after my 43rd birthday).

Good luck!:thumbup:

Wow! I was banded 3.12 and am down just 10 pounds. I've been flat with the loss since I went off the post op liquid diet and have had extra 1-2 pound drops post fills. I am getting my third fill tomorrow though and hoping to find restriction. Also need to work on getting in more exercise...

Great job! You guys are motivating.

I was banded 3/15 and had my first fill 4/14, with 3.5CC. I had a bad reaction (too tight I guess), and they emptied the band completely 4/17. I'm going to wait a few weeks to completely recover from it, as I became very weak and dehydrated, as well as allowing my giant fill-related bruise to heal. So far I've lost 41lbs (started at 319), and have over 100 still to go!

Holy crap! You go, girl! :laugh:

I'm down 31lbs and I'm stoked about that. I get my first fill on Friday...I think. I still have a bit of restriction and my surgeon does her fills under fluoro so I guess there's a chance I might not get one. We'll see! :o

I was 280 last summer, and in a 22. I am now in a 16 or 18 depending on the pants. I am now fitting into some pants that I haven't worn in like 3 years! :thumbup:

Hey Everybody, I was banded on 3/15/10. I am down 23.5 pounds since pre-op. I too, will be glad when I can say I'm down 50lbs. I live for that day. I'm trying to set small goals as I go like the 20's by certain date the teens by a certain date, etc. It is great know I'm not alone.

I was banded on 3/1. As of today, I have lost 51 lbs. and I still haven't had a fill yet! When I went into my first monthly followup, I was averaging 4 lbs a week. My doctor was pleased and said that since I was still losing weight, he saw no reason to give me a fill yet. However, the loss is slowing down so I'm pretty sure I'll get my fill on my next appointment. Congrats to everyone on here! I'm glad to hear all the success stories. I'm happy with my weight loss, but I'm even happier with the way I feel. That's more important to me. Have a great day everyone!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
