Banded In November?? How's It Going???



Recommended Posts

I was banded in November and tightened a week before Christmas. I was so worried about weighing myself because I really didn't think that my weightloss would be what I wanted. I was so surprised to find that I have lost around 7kgs since I was tightened. I still dont feel very much restriction so Ill be getting another .5ml fill in a couple of weeks. I have a total of 14kg (30lbs) lost and Im so excited about whats coming next. Please let me know how you are going. I would love to have more contacts who are going through the same process.

I was banded 11-3-11. It's good to see another November person, lol. I have recently hit my first stall. I have also lost 30 lbs. So its reassuring to me to know its "normal", LOL. I got my first fill on December 16th at my 6 week check-up. I have an appointment scheduled for the 23rd or so this month for another possible fill. I only feel restricted sometimes, mainly when I don't chew well enough. Other than that I'm 100% happy with my choice and my weight loss. How are you feeling, and when was your surgery date?

I was banded 11-12-11. I've been losing slowly but steadily. I've had a couple of fills, but had the last one taken back out because it was too much. I'm going in next week for another one and the doctor is going to try something slightly smaller than last time. As far as restriction, I can eat anything and haven't been stuck. I have a day every now and then where I'm really hungry, but most days I can control my appetite pretty easily with a little willpower and hot tea! And some days I don't feel hungry at all.

I just started excercising FOR REAL...sort of a new year's resolution. So far I've only been walking my dog, but now I'm taking a dance class one day a week and doing strength training 3 days a week. I'm happy with my weight loss speed so far, but I won't complain if my new exercise program speeds it up!

I was banded on November 30, 2011 and have lost a total of 40 lbs but I have recently gained about 4 lbs, due to the amount I am eating. I have very little or no restriction. My first fill is not until January 26, 2012 so I am just trying to "willpower" my way through.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
