Hi All!!

It's be FOREVER since I've posted on here! I've lost a total of 77 lbs. I still have a long way to go but well on my way. I'm having a rough week. Snacking too much. I gained a half a pound back, but holding steady for about a week now.

Sore port/band area!

Hope all is well with everyone! Keep it up!!

Hi- checking in too. I think I finally hit my sweet spot after having an unfill at the end of July. I am also noticing that both the physical and head hunger are diminshing too! Anyone else had that? After 77lbs down, people notice! I am wearing out Goodwill. Not spending a lot on clothes in sizes that I am just passing through. I am at the smallest weight I have been in about 10 years and I feel 10 years younger! Still the best decision ever. I hope everyone has continued success.

Congrats to both of you on your success!!! YAY! 77lbs makes a huge difference physically and emotionally. I too feel like I am having to buy a new wardrobe every month. Lots of consignment store, old navy, and target clearance for me. I still deal with head hunger every day and have to be strict with myself. However, when I stay on top of my exercise, I do allow myself a little treat once or twice a week. Keeps my cravings down and I am still losing. Exercise is equally important to my weight loss as nutrition is.

I am down 111lb since I began the 6 month pre op diet. I feel like a whole new person. My next goal is to get under 200. I went in for a fill appt today but since I am in the green zone, they didn't put any Fluid in. I have been losing about 13lbs per month but they said expect it to slow down the smaller I get... 4-8lbs per month is average.

Keep up the great work everyone!

Hello! Been awhile since I've posted on here.

I had my third almost a month ago and I was wondering if anyone has the same feeling as I do.

After I get my fill, for maybe a week (or two if I'm lucky), I'll definitely feel the restriction, WHICH I LOVE, but after that week or so, I feel nothing.

Does anyone get like that?

HI Jackie,

Weight loss has definitely slowed down, have lost about 50 pounds. I did not have to start losing before surgery on May 24th but it came of quickly the first few months. I have only had one fill but will have another one next month. I did go in for a fill last month but the doctor did not think I needed one at that time. I sure feel I need one now. Still keeping to good food choices for the band, although I do have a treat now and then. My concern is the exercise I am not faithful, hope to do better. How are you doing? Hugs

Hi ladies!

I miss you all. Hope you're all doing well on your bandster journey. We just have to remember that ANY progress, even if slower than we would like, is progress. I am so glad we have each others support.

Some days are a real struggle mentally but doing my best. I am in the green Zone. Only a few lbs from goal so I am switching my focus from big weight loss numbers to eating nutritious foods, getting fitter, and learning to make this a lifestyle and not a diet. Which is so hard when you have yo-yo'd your whole life. lol.

I am doing good, hit a plateau for awhile, but trying not to focus on that and just being healthly since that is the long term goal. I have lost 60 pounds and Im looking to lose another 35 or so.

You are doing great :) congrats! What kind of exercise have you been doing? It's hard to find something that feels fun and not like a chore at the end of a tiring day. Have you tried zumba, or new work outs?

Thanks Jackie! I am 5'9" so anywhere between 175-170 was my goal. I'm 179 right now. So 146lbs down since i started the journey.. about 100 of that was post surgery.

I would like to lose a little bit more but overall feeling fit and healthy at this size. It is hard for me to let go of my fixation on numbers/calories and just go by what feels healthy.
