I was banded on 9-1 and I think I must have had one of the smoothest transitions ever based on what I have read here recently. I had mild discomfort for 3-5 days and after that it was smooth sailing. I saw my surgeon 1 week post op and he said I was ok to move on to real food. At that point I had lost 40 lbs. I had a business trip last week, so access to healthy food was limited, plus I endulged a bit, but not a lot. When I got home I found that I had gained 10 lbs. I didn't beat myself up over it, remembering you all saying that the first 6 weeks are for healing, not losing weight. Over the next 3 days I gained a steady pound per day. Then 2 days again I had a 3lb drop and another this morning. It is very satisfying to see the scale headed back in the right direction.

As for food, I really haven't had any issues with sliming or PB. Most of the time I don't notice any restriction at all. I did eat half of a wrap from Starbuck though and the flat bread was difficult to get down. I slowed down a lot after that event. My favorite meal of all is chili so far. I also find that a lot of filler foods, like bread and rice, no longer hold much appeal for me. They are flavorless and just take up space. I much prefer food with real flavor now.

All in all things are going well. I am ready to get my first fill on Oct 5.

sounds like you are on the right track!

I was banded 9-2-11, and haven't gotten my weight since my one-day post op.

A 40 pound loss sounds miraculous--I know I am nowhere close to that, but knowing my clothes do feel just a BIT more roomier is fine with me for now!

      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.
