I wish 6m would fly by!



Recommended Posts

I am about to start on my 3rd month of the supervised diet and I wish it would hurry up I'm so ready to get banded!! Although I will say I'm learning a lot about restriction.

I was the same way....when I first started, I thought 6 months would be like 6 years! But honestly, they flew by and lo and behold, I was having my surgery.

Take the time to take all necessary steps to get mentally and physically ready. Start making changes in your eating habits, and read up, ask questions, etc.

I stopped drinking Diet Coke during my 1st month, I took a few cooking lessons during the next 2 months, so I could "learn" to cook healthy. I made myself try new foods like: couscous and quinoa. I started drinking almond milk, and the list goes on :)

Hang in there and enjoy the journey! Six months will be here sooner than you think!

Glad to have you here!

My last appointment is June14! Maybe we all can stay in touch and with each other :) I'm trying to stay motivated but there are not any great educational classes in the area.

As much as we all want to hurry things up, this 6 months is a great time to really get your head in the game, work on new habits, and get prepared. It will make the world of difference after you are banded. I wish I would have done more work and lifestyle modifications pre-banding as I was in for a big awakening post-banding.

nonetheless, it's all worth while.

I notice that everyone is having their last appointment on their 6m, did you not have to technically go 7m to the nutritionalist?

My last appointment is technically an extra appointment. (3 month supervised diet- 4 nutrition appointments)

The steps prior to being banded is very important. During this time you are learning better habits, getting use to exercising, getting control of your cravings, and learning to eat slower. Because if you don't, those old habits can follow you after your band and become a problem to your dreams of becoming lean, thinn, and fit. Your patience will reward you.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
